Research into CBD is exciting, and the above cannabis strains enable you to enjoy the possible benefits of the cannabinoid without an intoxicating high. Follow our safety tips above, try one of the strains we’ve mentioned, and let us know what you think.
This famous sativa dominant (75%) strain has the highest THC level on the list (at a range of 7 – 15%). However, it is also notable for having a high CBD content of at least 10%. The result means Harlequin is ideal for use during the day as it keeps you alert and energetic.
Ringo’s Gift has an earthy hash taste and aroma. Users tend to experience an element of cerebral activity while their body feels soothed and relaxed. Due to the low THC content, the high you receive is mild yet noticeable. It begins in the head and slowly but surely leads to a body buzz that keeps you relaxed but not couch-locked.
THC works by binding to CB1 receptors, which are largely concentrated in the brain and central nervous system. These produce the intoxicating effects for which marijuana is famous.
5 – Harlequin (10-15% CBD, 7-15% THC)
Oddly enough, Harlequin is also useful for relaxing and staying calm. It has a soothing effect all over the body and in the head. The high CBD content somewhat negates the high THC content. Therefore, it should be okay to smoke it during the day, although dry eyes are a possible side effect.
There is no ‘high’ associated with this strain, and it provides users with no cerebral effect. Charlotte’s Web is typically consumed in CBD oil form rather than being smoked.

3 – Ringo’s Gift (15% CBD, Max 1% THC)
Researchers now believe that CBD could work by influencing serotonin receptors. The cannabinoid could also balance GABA, which is an inhibitory neurotransmitter associated with relaxing effects.
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 levels of CBD.

The reason this occurs is because the shape and chemical makeup of CBD and THC are very different. When CBD binds to receptors in the body, known as our CB1 receptors, it actually blocks THC from attaching to those same receptors in a first-come, first-serve manner. This reduces the psychoactivity of products that contain THC and can pave the way for the relaxing effects CBD is known for.
