Six of the best CBD Medical Cannabis Strains

With more and more medical cannabis strains and extracts becoming more available and accessible. Many new CBD brands are entering the market with all sorts of new products and delivery systems. But, we ask what are these high medical CBD strains and what makes CBD extracts stand aside?

CBD strains are sweeping Europe right now. Due to the fact they are from EU-approved varieties of hemp – traditionally grown for industrial purposes – and consist of less than 0.2% THC, they are entirely legal in most European countries.

While the effects are far from the ‘high’ typically associated with cannabis use, smoking a CBD-rich strain does produce a subtle ‘relaxed’ feeling throughout the body - a body high, if you will. So, here we present to you six of the lesser know CBD Medical Cannabis Strains;


Harlequin is one of the authentic CBD strains and is generally one of the only lines that people can name after they’re asked to call a CBD strain. Harlequin is maximum widely known for having a really high CBD content. Don’t be misled by this though, just because there’s practically 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, headaches and depression.

CBD Critical Cure

One if the newer strains available, CBD Critical Cure (or Critical Cure), created by Barney's Farm is a indica-dominant strain that’s said to combine Critical Kush with a ruderalis variety. This strain typically contains about 8% CBD and 5% THC, Critical Cure can annihilate pain, stress, and inflammation with little psychoactive interference.

4.0 Swiss Tsu
