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.
