One comment on “Five Strains High In CBD To Help You Relax”

  1. I love the different strain options given in this article. It feels like the author did her research about the strains and the THC plus CBD ratios well. I am yet to try some of the strains listed in this article. I am eagerly looking forward to trying Sour Tsunami and Ringo’s gift as they are high in THC and I have never heard of them before. I will be visiting my nearest dispensary for the required information because I don’t want to get really stoned.

    I have had a long history of anxiety and as soon as cannabis and medical marijuana got legalized, I wanted to try something that would help me feel better and happier again. It helped in a great many ways, I could sleep better, I had clearer thoughts and didn’t indulge in over-thinking. I feel these alternative medicines/options are such a blessing in disguise if used properly. I have known so many people who still couldn’t feel better after consulting doctors and having pills that were good for nothing.
