Marijuana is a beautiful and healthy flower with about one hundred Cannabinoids and two of those are pretty well known. Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC is the psychoactive compound responsible for the “high” euphoric buzz we feel when we smoke. Another, Cannabidiol or CBD is what helps more in a medical sense. It is known for its analgesic, anti-anxiety, anti-inflammatory and pain reduction properties. Interestingly enough, CBD can actually counteract the paranoid feelings that THC can occasionally bring up. Below are 5 amazing high CBD strains of Marijuana.

It can be helpful for negative side effects associated with chemotherapy as well as benefiting those with epilepsy, multiple sclerosis and cancer.
A sativa dominant strain with a CBD to THC ratio of roughly 5:2. With a more alert high with a sativa dominant strain, you can go about your day smoking this without much lagging you down.
