This is mostly due to its low levels of THC, which is an heirloom passed on by its Harlequin parent. A CBD-enriched strain itself, the Sativa-dominant parent provides a clear-headed high induced by its freshly picked mango smoke. Meanwhile, its calming quality is from the cultural highlands of Appalachia.

A highly versatile strain, Good Medicine’s low THC levels make it a great beginner’s smoke as well as a patient’s source of comfort.

    Though created for recreational purposes, Good Medicine remains a wonderful recreational strain. It induces a subtle head high through its calming THC levels of up to 9%. Because it is not as potent compared to other strains, its initial head high manifests quite late, usually around 15 minutes.

    Once it hits, though, it immediately delivers a subtle rush of energy throughout the body beginning from the temples. It stimulates the mind gently, a welcome change to the strong variants that bombard users with its sheer potency. Users become cheery as the upbeat mood brings back happy memories. Escaping the lips are giggles and a radiant smile that shines upon dark thoughts that bring negativity.

    Gradually, Good Medicine’s Indica genes reveal itself. It starts as a gentle buzz from the back of the head that slowly but surely trickles down to the rest of the body. As it intensifies, it blankets the body in a deep relaxation. A couch lock is usually unlikely although an urge to recline and revel in the effects is present.

    Like other CBD-rich strains, Good Medicine has a strong earthy scent with undertones of herbal spices. Breaking it apart, however,  will release delicious citric overtones that intensify once the buds are combusted.


    Drawn in, the flavors of candied mangoes rush into the palate along with a pleasant touch of citrus. On the exhale, it leaves an herbal spiciness that is sometimes overpowered by a dank earth.

    Adverse reactions

    A cottonmouth and dry eyes are two uncommon reactions to marijuana. It is unavoidable but very manageable as it is quite mild. Moreover, the two side effects go away after a few hours. Though experienced users often ignore the symptoms, beginners who find the discomfort unbearable may down a few glasses of water throughout the day.

    High-CBD strains can sometimes cause dizziness depending on the dosage. The heightened sensitivity toward one’s surroundings can trigger paranoia especially in high doses. Most of the time, however, users only experience a headache. Still, it is better to refrain from overindulging the strain.


    Good Medicine would not earn its moniker if its therapeutic benefits are not up to par with the industry’s top medicinal strains. Its immense pharmacological value is a result of its high CBD value as well as uplifting THC.

    For one, the strain’s stimulating happy high relieves stress by not only enhancing the mood but also calming the mind. In a similar manner, it appeases symptoms of depression and other mental health issues such as PTSD.

    The same compounds also eases various physical health issues such as fatigue, which are random aches in the body when one is exhausted from work. It soothing the muscles, the strain provides users a reprieve against aches and pains. Meanwhile, its anti-inflammatory properties reduce swelling and redness that can sometimes send sharp signals to the brain.

      At the moment, Good Medicine is only available in regular form. Because this means that at least half a batch will be males, aspiring growers must take extra precautions such as adding more seeds and presoaking it overnight to encourage more female plants. Utilizing Low-Stress Training techniques during the flowering period will keep calyx-filled plants from turning into hermaphrodites.

      A medium-sized plant, the Sativa-dominant strain fits in most growing spaces. But, for truly limited indoor areas, it is necessary to shorten the vegetative period or top the plant early to keep its height manageable. Using the Screen of Green method, coupled with super cropping, will encourage higher yields covered in thick coats of trichomes and resin.

      Soil usually brings out the full flavors of the bud’s terpene profile. As such, plants grown on farms and gardens often produce the most delicious nugs especially when Good Medicine is cultivated in a Mediterranean climate. However, staking and providing support to its weak stalks are important as it can easily break from strong gusts of wind.

      It is also possible to use hydroponic systems to get “cleaner” buds.

      Flowering Time


      Like other Sativa-dominant strains, Good Medicine has a long flowering period that can last from 10 to 12 weeks. Once ready for harvest, however, it rewards each grower between 12 to 16 ounces of buds per square meter.


      In the northern hemisphere, Good Medicine flowers from late October to the middle of November. At maturity, it yields at least 16 ounces of buds per plant.
