I had excellent anti-anxiety results from vaping Warlock CBD.

Difficult to say as i did not really pay so much attention to this. (Should have)
I believe it is a strain question partly. Much is also about how you consume it and dosage too.

Yea, i really recommend you try CBD-rich strains, cause it takes out some of the edgy/over powering effect of weed away. The effect is more like smoking traditional hashish (Moroccan, Leb etc.) than THC-only weed.

The effect from CBD rich weed is calmer, clearer and more centered. More "kind" than from strong THC-only weed, and i'm sure CBD-rich plants are better for people who suffer from anxiety.

CBD-rich sativas will still feel like sativas and CBD-rich indicas will still be somewhat stoney, so keep this in mind when you choose your CBD-rich strain.

If you have a THC-only plant you like alot and can't find similar stuff as CBD-rich weed, then you can mix CBD-rich weed with your favorite THC-only smoke to alter the effect abit. In this case, i'm sure, it would be better to have potent CBD-only (close to zero % THC) bud as the mixer.


I have only smoked two CBD-rich varieties so far; CBD Critical Cure (Barney's) and CBD 3D (CBD Crew). I really like my CBD Cure keeper, but i have grown only one plant of those and found a keeper right away.
I wasn't too impressed with the CBD 3D. Think i had late nanners on each of the five females i flowered, while my CBD Cure keeper stayed completely nanner free right next to them.

I'm vegging some CBD Divine plants from CBD Crew atm, but i haven't flowered them yet.

I've bought breeder packs & tried Resin Seeds Cannatonic and TGA Hurkle and Pennywise. All were excellent herbs. I think my favorite for buzz & overall effects was Hurkle. It's more of an indica, Pennywise is sativa, Cannatonic looks indica but the buzz is sativa.

I like both high THC and CBD. One of my Cannatonic plants seemed to be all CBD and low THC and it gave me a groggy feeling I didn't like. I find CBD does introduce a bit of a groggy/brain fog feeling despite what they say about no high.

I've got Yummy from Mr Nice which is about 50/50 THC/CBD and is a nice calming herb when you've had too much of the high THC strains. Clears your head and makes you feel a bit better - but not stoned.

Pineapple Express from G13 labs surprised me recently by being effective at calming mild anxiety. Seems to be a standard big bud cross but really was the nicest calming effect i've had from a plant in ages.

But I'd also strongly recommend the natural herb Ashwagandha which reduces the cortisol in your system. Look it up - read peoples reviews then give it 30 days. Weed is so more enjoyable when you're brain isn't worrying about stuff it doesn't need to.

Harlequin had an annoying buzz. The cannatonic I had made me stupid. (lots of different cannatonic out there)

This cut of Canna-Tsu flatlines my anxiety, is clear, very high CBD, moderate THC and an orange citrus terpene profile. No buzz, stone or high at all. Even no tolerance folks have no reaction to it, other than positive ones.

I'm looking forward to seeing more strains with functionality like this specific cut has. The world needs them desperately.

Quite some high CBD strains i tried in the past gave me also a foggy often headachy feeling that didn't help. I only could try a handful. I think most had a bitter taste.
I also wonder what kind of pain CBD alone works for, more inflammatory stuff? I am not yet sure in my case.

I got some new legal samples that are very promising

I'm not sure if it's actually CBD that does that, cause i find that CBD allows the other compounds to act normally, altering the effect as they do. So i'm thinking it's also possible that it was the plant's other chemicals that caused the groggy effect.
Maybe the plant had good amount of myrcene in it which made you feel groggy.

My experience with CBD-rich weed is quite different, to me CBD ads clairity and focus to the effect.
While i have a CBD-rich plant that has abit mongy/groggy side to it's effect, this effect is not apparent in every CBD-rich plant i have smoked, thou the effect i assosiate with CBD was still there.

Like mentioned above, Harlequin apparently hasn't got the nicest effect i've read, never smoked any myself, so i was thinking maybe people's bad experiences with CBD-rich plants involves similar genetics.

About the taste..
Poor taste has to be because of the particular genetics you guys smoked, cause my CBD Critical Cure keeper is fruity and tasty as hell. Skunky tangerine and fruit salad goodness, close to Soma's NYCD.

Like with any plant from seed, there are different phenos of Harlequin. Only about 25% will be high CBD. I just sampled some that had one of the best anti anxiety effects I have ever experienced, maybe the best. Better than CBD Crew's Skunk Haze and Reggae Seeds Juanita Lagrimosa both of which I grew. The Skunk Haze in particular had a dreary boring high. Juanita was more sparkly but could trigger the noids if I smoked too much. My tolerance is way low.
