Cannatonic is an uncommon and unusual hybrid strain that is globally renowned for its high CBD concentration and little-to-none THC levels. This strain was originally bred by the talented Resin Seeds team out of Spain with the intentions of creating a world class medicinal strain with as little psychoactive effects as possible. The seed breeders and cultivators chose to cross a female MK Ultra plant with a male G13 Haze plant in particular to create Cannatonic. MK Ultra and G13 Haze were sought out for their potential medicinal qualities – MK Ultra was chosen for its calming, cerebral high and G13 Haze was selected for its intense body numbing qualities. Don’t be fooled by the meager 6% or less THC concentration of this hybrid strain! The secret of Cannatonic lies within the abnormally high CBD levels which on average range from 6% upwards of 18%! As a result of the higher CBD concentations, Cannatonic is considered one of the most effective medicinal strains and is often sought to help with the treatment of pain, inflammation, hunger, anxiety, depression and many physical and physiological conditions. Most modern day cuts and phenotypes of this sweet hybrid have stayed true to the original physical characteristics. As a result of its sativa parentage, Cannatonic displays long and hairy cone-shaped buds. The aroma is surprisingly sweet and citrus-like for an indica-dominant hybrid strain, with earthy undertones that are further accentuated by mild lemon-like notes.
What is Weed
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Bill Clinton once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.
