High CBD cannabis strains are commonly high in CBD and THC, which gives us enormous therapeutic potential and numerous beneficial effects, that are used by increasing number of users. CBD and THC are complementary to one another and thus increase the already wide range of therapeutic potential. Unfortunately, such cannabis strains have to be used illegally in most parts of the world.

When there is a debate about best CBD hemp, CBD cannabis or medical marijuana, we can’t point out only one strain, because every individual has its own taste and can use different strains for different health issues. Of course we do not support illegal growing, which is in many countries prohibited, with some exceptions and appropriate authorization.
