CBD cannabis strains are hitting the market so fast, it’s impossible to keep track of them all. The list below will familiarize you with the most common CBD varieties, but keep in mind that your dispensary probably stocks many others. If these popular strains aren’t in stock or you’d like to try something new, ask your budtender to point out other standout CBD strains and products.

What is CBD, you might ask? CBD stands for cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive cannabis constituent with a variety of studied benefits such as:

  • Pain relief
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-epileptic
  • Anti-anxiety

A strain can be high in THC, CBD, or a combination of the two. Both compounds have unique medicinal properties, some of which are amplified when both compounds are present (e.g. pain management). High-CBD or mixed strains tend to be the best choices for consumers prone to anxiety. But ultimately, you’ll be the one to decide which strain works best for you.

Note that these strains tend to express consistent THC:CBD profiles, but you may encounter variations (e.g. ACDC may be found with little to no THC, or exhibit a balanced THC:CBD ratio). Always check each product’s tested cannabinoid profile to be certain of its THC and CBD levels.
