Hey Afghanicus, I'd stay away from lowryder but that's just me...

I found a breeder called world of seeds who do many landraces, I found them at grow shop alien, google it. I've no idea wether they're any good but they are cheap so I may give some a go some time soon..

hi afghanicus. this is a q that comes up pretty often, what with all the excellent studies that zam sited about how CBD kills cancer, protects your brain, regenerates neurons, fixes the problem of oil depletion and brings about peace on earth. it seems very reasonable that patients would seek out high CBD strains, but precious little info is available.

As discussed in this thread

I can vouch for White Rhino being a heavy, relaxing, anti-axiety stone. Not sure i feel that way about white widow though. Can't say for sure, but Bubba Kush certainly has all the properties of a strain with some CBD, so if you can get that clone i highly recommend it. It works best for my IBD. Good luck!

zamalito: thanks for clarifying the THC/CBD/CBN deets, saved me some typing...

yeah not many strains have CBD percentages :( I wonder if something like Black Domina or Afghani #1 from sensi would be high in CBD? most Afghanis should have high CBD right? i'm waiting on some sensi hindu kush as we speak. I'm looking foward to trying that one as well. White rhino does look good but it has some sativa in it doesn't it? i'm trying to get as pure an indica as i can. From what i hear white rhino is indica in effects though so it may be good. Its reasonably priced to. Maybe aurora indica from nirvana would also be good.

Getting my hands on a clone is a bit out of my reach. I'm best off getting seeds and finding offspring that are favourable.

Have any of you looked at Petrolia Headstash from Reeferman? It is supposed to be a pre-Soviet Afghan variety, like Deep Chunk.

yes i have pops, thanks. Reeferman has some interesting strains no doubt. It looks good. Reeferman only deals in cash and i'm not about to send that amount of cash overseas. I have had things get lost/stolen in the mail before unfortunately and its just too risky for me. I really do like the looks of those deep chunk. Hopefully it wont be long and i can get my hands on some. It looks very much indica and i'm guessing is has a reasonable level of CBD.

Hey Everyone, I just thought of something not mentioned here.

Maybe it would be easier to get what we want from cannabis, the higher CBD levels, if we don't look at the flowers.

From what I remember, it seems alot of the medicinal (not recreational) use from 5000 BC focused more on the leaves of the marijuana plant. Actually, I believe the Chinese used the roots/leaves/stems/and flowers if they wanted.

And it would be my guess the Chinese were getting their medicine from the hemp (non drug) strains of marijuana. The feral strains.

So instead of searching the globe long and hard for some special plant that breeds higher CBD percentage in its flowers, why don't we just use leaves? Heck, you don't even need a flowering room for that!

This is based on the assumption (might be wrong) that leaves have good levels of CBD. I recently smoked bubble hash made from leaves of the Diesel plant. Diesel is probably one of those modern hybridized THC rec. drug plants. But man smoking that was totally a medicinal/body effect.

Back when I had a grow I tried vaporizing mj leaves. Think about that. You could probably vaporize to your hearts content, and get the medicine you need.. of course leaves don't taste as good as flowers.

SEASONAL FLUCTUATIONS IN CANNABINOID CONTENT OF KANSAS MARIJUANA
http://www.druglibrary.org/schaffer/.../seasonal.html
Quote:
CONCLUSIONS

Seasonal changes observed in cannabinoids indicate CBD is transformed to delta-9-THC to CBN. Data suggest that stress may influence cannabinoid production and bivalent ions may regulate enzyme systems responsible for cannabinoid synthesis. Seasonal variability of cannabinoids in plants was observed in Riley County. Potential cannabinoid content of marijuana appears to be genetically controlled, but the level of expression may be regulated by environmental factors regulating plant growth and development. Marijuana growing wild in Kansas is low in potency. Midwestern marijuana, descended from varieties cultivated for fiber and cannabinoid level, apparently has remained unchanged by natural selection.
It seems according to this article there are many many variables to consider when thinking about cannabinoids!!! You know, the medical usage of cannabis has been one casualty from the war on drugs. Americans resorted to making unhealthy moonshine, instead of being free to brew the live enzyme-rich beer humans have been drinking for so long.

Us people interested in the medical side need to take the power back. Take the knowledge back. If I can have any part of this future I will. I feel like I have the athletic ability to make it to the olympics, but no opportunity to go!! I've been trying to grow for so long. Its horrible... But I think I might finally be able to do this legally. And you bet I"ll be growing/test/breeding this CBD/terpene stuff. I want to bring the MEDICINAL to the people that need it.

I have nothing against recreational use. In fact, I think its great. But because of prohibition I think the full medical potential of mj has been sorta lost in the shadow of the glorified THC.

I'm also interested in the usage of hemp strains for medicinal powers. Does anyone know if its really true that hemp would give you a headache - lets say - if you made oil with the leaves, or even smoked/vaporized them?

It seems utlizing the full medical power of mj might be easier than thought. Just go back to the roots, back to the wild feral plants.. maybe these are the "hemp" strains, I don't know. But gee, it just seems like this is "too easy"!!

There is no need to search for a plant that has high cbd content because if you have a plant that is from an indica parent or is mixed with it, the cbda enzyme which synthesizes cbd will make what's needed.

Most people have some plant that is an indica mix at least so getting cbd shouldn't be a problem. The problem is giving the plant enough of the mineral that stimulates the enzyme to synthesize cbd and make a lot of it but what the mineral is I don't know. This is why have a broad range of minerals and getting it from other plants such as their leaves which store most of the minerals can help solve this problem of low cbd plants that are mostly out now. Coconut water is a good source as well as ions.

As far as seasons effecting cannabinoid synthesis, this makes sense being that as the seasons change, the amount of nutrients available to the plant from the soil slowly stops due to drying up as well as the amount of certain light spectrum's and therefore only certain enzymes would be activated to get the amount of cannabinoids to be synthesized.
