If you ask someone to name a standard high THC strain, they can probably name ten of them immediately. Now, try asking the same person to name at least five CBD strains. They probably can name one, maybe two tops. Luckily, I am here to help! Here are 5 CBD strains you need to know about!
Harlequin is one of the original CBD strains, and is usually one of the only strains that people can name when they’re asked to name a CBD strain. Harlequin is most well known for having an extremely high CBD content and a almost no THC (some phenotypes don’t even break 1 percent).
Don’t be misled by this though, just because there’s almost no THC doesn’t mean that this strain won’t make you feel anything. Harlequin will make you feel good, while helping people suffering from anxiety, PTSD, and depression.

Charlotte’s Web, originally called “Hippie’s Disappointment,” is another one of the most well known CBD strains. This strain has a rather inspirational story behind it. It was named for Charlotte Figi, a little girl suffering from Dravet Syndrome, a rare form of epilepsy which caused her to have hundreds of seizures a day.
Once her parents began giving her the high CBD strain, Charlotte’s seizures became fewer and fewer until almost completely disappearing. Charlotte is now able to lead a normal life doing all of the things little girls like to do. The strain then became known as Charlotte’s Web. This strain is best for people who suffer from epilepsy and other seizure disorders, though it does treat a number of other medical conditions
Stephen Hawking Kush
Named after the famous Dr. Stephen Hawking, the smartest man in the world. If you are having issues with inflammation, fatigue, nausea and anxiety, then this is one of the high CBD strains that you need to know about. This strain will not only cure what ails you, it will also leave you relaxed and focused.
Though the name may imply differently, this strain is not for rockin and rollin. Instead this most infamous of the high CBD strains is most known for treating people suffering from chronic pain and Multiple Sclerosis, as well as alleviating the symptoms of stress and depression. Those treating themselves for cancer are ACDC’s biggest fans. Even if you’re not suffering from any of these conditions, ACDC will still make you feel relaxed and uplifted.
With the remake of It out in theaters, it seems appropriate to mention this CBD strain bred from Jack the Ripper and Harlequin. There is nothing scary about Pennywise, and best of all there are no clowns (I am deathly afraid of clowns). Instead Pennywise works to help treat inflammation and chronic pain. Unlike other clowns, this one will not keep you up all night.
