Cannatonic: A Cannabis Strain High In CBD
Cannatonic grows and hits you like an Indica strain would, but smells and tastes like most popular hazy Sativa strains. This makes sense of course, considering its genetics. The Cannatonic strain stems from MK Ultra and G-13 Haze.
“This specific batch of Cannatonic lab tested at 17% CBD, which is pretty incredible…”
Bred by the founder of Resin Seeds – Jaime – 50% of Cannatonic plants are CBD-rich, meaning they lab test at 4% cannabidiol (CBD) or higher. It was one of the first strains recorded with a CBD:THC ratio of 1:1 or better.
This specific batch of Cannatonic tested at 17% CBD, which is pretty incredible in the southern California medical marijuana community. As we know, cannabidiol (CBD)may relieve anxiety, prevent certain cancers, inhibit seizures, treat OCD, and much more.
How Will The Cannatonic Strain Affect Me?
Cannatonic had a slightly piney lemon aroma and the buds looked really unique, with the brownish tint bringing back memories of smoking dirt weed long ago. Thankfully the effects made it much more appealing
Cannatonic brought back memories of Jack Herer, but with more of a body-melt. This leads me to believe that it would make for an effective medicine for sufferers of chronic pain, especially in the form of a concentrate.
It’s recommended for one to use this as a daytime or wake and bake strain. You will likely be able to medicate throughout the day without feeling bogged down.
As more studies are done on the effects of CBD, more breeders have begun to breed CBD rich strains. For many the idea of a strain with a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD may sound ridiculous, but Resin Seeds strove to achieve this in their strain Cannatonic.
Their final product ended up being a 50/50 hybrid strain that barely achieved a THC percentage higher than 6 percent, however, it’s CBD content tested between 6 and 17 percent.
A powerfully relaxing strain, Cannatonic is very uplifts and focuses the mind. These effects are slightly overshadowed by the strong warming and numbing sensations that flow over the body. Great for those that need pain relief in the morning or afternoon, the strain may also calm muscle spasms, migraines and headaches. It may calm nausea, anxiety, stress and mood disorders.
By pollinating a female MK Ultra with the well known male G13 Haze, Resin Seeds created an earthy and citrus tasting strain. Resistant to many pests, Cannatonic has reportedly had some issues with molds and mildews, meaning it should probably be kept in a controlled environment or carefully watched. Resin Seeds keeps some very in depth growing information on their website for the strain when grown indoors. They recommend vegetating for a week, using Bio Vega and Bio Rhizotonic.
Clones may need an eye kept on them to ensure the development of a strong root system. After the vegetative period comes a nine week flowering period, during the last of which Resin Seeds advises lowering the hours of light to ten from twelve. Cannatonic plants may yield up to 500 grams per square meter indoors. Outside in October, these plants may be harvested for 250 to 400 grams per plant.
