5 High Cannabinoid Percentage C-B-D Oil Strains for Cancer

“But the characteristic that causes C-B-D (cannabinoids) to stand out, particularly in the mainstream media, is that it produces none of the psychoactive “high” effects for which T-H-C is famous…”

I don’t like the feeling of being high. There, I said it. But I am a long-term cancer survivor and cancer coach so I want to learn all I can about the health benefits of C-B-D oil. Cancer survivors and caregivers frequently contact me asking about C-B-D oil and its possible efficacy as a therapy for them. Unfortunately, I can make only vague statements related to the ideas outlined below.

Studies of cannabinoids, while still somewhat thin, indicate that C-B-D oil can synergize with certain cancer chemotherapy regimens and may even be cytotoxic to cancer itself. I follow an anti-cancer diet, an anti-cancer nutritional supplementation regimen and I may also be able to supplement with a non-psychotropic, high cannabinoid C-B-D oil.

But here’s the thing. Many C-B-D oils have a very low percentage of cannabinoids IN them. Since it is cannabinoids that are the medicine aka the good stuff, then low percentages of the good stuff is not what I want. I want as high a percentage of cannabinoids IN the C-B-D oil I buy as possible.

Another fly in the ointment is that C-B-D strains are all over the place, from the perspective of availability. I want to be able to walk into a medical marijuana dispensary and ask for the highest cannabinoid percentage C-B-D oil possible.

The article linked and excerpted below is light on evidence-based sources. The article refers to cannabinoid content for specific strains but I have no idea of the validity of these statements.

Five High Cannabinoid C-B-D Strains

“Cannabidiol, more commonly shortened to C-B-D, is the cannabinoid responsible for changing the conversation about medical marijuana…

C-B-D is the second most abundant cannabinoid found in cannabis, behind its acclaimed counterpart tetrahydrocannabinol (T-H-C). But the characteristic that causes C-B-D to stand out, particularly in the mainstream media, is that it produces none of the psychoactive “high” effects for which T-H-C is famous…

Studies on animals have shown a wide variety of medicinal benefits from CBD included but not limited to:

  • Suppressing seizures
  • Reducing nausea and vomiting
  • Alleviating psychological disorders
  • Soothing inflammatory disorders
  • Combatting tumor and cancer cells
  • Improving neurodegenerative disorders
  • Treating anxiety and depression disorders
  • Preventing the progression of diabetes
  • Relieving severe nerve and/or bone pain
  • Calming symptoms of PTSD such as schizophrenia

Sour Tsunami, one of the first strains bred specifically for high C-B-D and low T-H-C, will immediately wash your pain away. It typically tests up to 11% C-B-D with T-H-C less than 10%, making for a nice and balanced 1:1 ratio…

Cannatonic is a migraine-melting strain out of Spain that’s one of the first strains bred for a high C-B-D ratio. Created by Resin Seeds, it has a mild sweet pine flavor but packs a punch with its consistently high C-B-D percentages (up to 23%!)…Supposedly, it relieves pain, anxiety, muscle spasms and migraines while uplifting your energy. It’s known for its ability to relax and loosen muscles without the couch-lock effect…

Harlequin  It is loved for its consistent 5:2 ratio of C-B-D:T-H-C (ranges about 8-16% CBD to 4-7% THC).

The Remedy is one of my personal favorite C-B-D-rich strains because it’s extremely rich in terpenes while also having one of the highest C-B-D:T-H-C ratios (15:1). Not only does The Remedy have a high ratio but it consistently tests at around 15% C-B-D…It’s a powerful combatant to seizures, pain, anxiety, inflammation, and autism while also providing deep body relaxation.

C-B-D OG Testing upwards of 19% C-B-D, this cross of Trident and Skywalker OG. C-B-D OG runs Indica-dominant and has worked wonders on symptoms of PTSD, chronic pain, anxiety, inflammation and muscle tension. Plus, it serves a dose of CBG on the side which is the best cannabinoid for chronic sleep issues…

3 High CBD / Low THC Marijuana Strains

Charlotte’s Web (The World’s Most Famous Marijuana Strain)

This world famous strain is indica dominant (60%) and was the focus of a bid to legalize high CBD strains. It helped reduce the seizures of Charlotte Figi, and it has a CBD content as high as 20%. Charlotte’s Web is extremely low in THC which means it can be sold as a food supplement.

Obviously, there is no ‘high’ associated with this strain, and it provides users with no cerebral effect. In fact, if it weren’t for its pain relieving ability, you wouldn’t even realize you’ve taken anything. Charlotte’s Web is typically consumed in C-B-D oil form rather than being smoked.

As well as its known effectiveness when treating pediatric seizure disorders such as Dravet’s Syndrome, Charlotte’s Web is used to help with migraines, fatigue, fibromyalgia, muscle spasms, and arthritis..

Ringo’s Gift (The Marijuana Strain That Has Nothing to do With Ringo Starr!)

This is a slightly sativa dominant (60%) strain with a CBD: THC ratio as high as 20:1. You can find strains of Ringo’s Gift with up to 20% CBD and as little as 1% THC. It is a cross of ACDC and Harle-Tsu; both are known for their high level of CBD…

Harle-Tsu (The Painkilling Marijuana Strain)

This indica dominant (60%) strain is a cross of Sour Tsunami and Harlequin strains and contains up to 22% CBD against less than 1% THC. It is a relatively rare bud, but we imagine that won’t be the case for long given its popularity…
