In 2012 Dutch Passion began working with the CBD Crew to produce a range of feminized cannabis seeds which produce marijuana plants rich in the cannabinoid CBD.
A variety with over 4% CBD is regarded as CBD rich.
CBD Skunk Haze comes from a project between Dutch Passion and CBD Crew.
The goal was to achieve an optimum ratio of 1:1 THC:CBD.
For medical use low % THC is preferred for some medical patients who want a relaxing and high quality genuine cannabis effect without the intensity that some high THC varieties give.
Recreational users find that high CBD levels give a very comfortable and smooth high without anxiety or paranoia.
CBD Skunk Haze contains 5% THC and 5% CBD.
To create this variety Dutch Passions's Haze/Skunk (winner of the 1992 High Times Cannabis Cup) was carefully crossed with a high CBD variety.
CBD has a number of important properties, it can help with relaxation and nausea, reduce anxiety and improve sleep.
CBD varieties may allow users to medicate themselves yet still think clearly and function well.
For recreational users, the new CBD varieties may be a less intense but equally pleasurable alternative to traditional varieties.
