Cannabis use has been on the rise recently thanks to how it is now becoming widely accepted in more countries across the globe. In that regard, some of the most widely used cannabis strains are hybrids. You can never go wrong with the best hybrid cannabis strains the market can offer you.
However, not everyone has a high enough tolerance to be able to handle every kind of hybrid cannabis. Some users just can’t take using potent strains. This is why they often use cannabis types with low THC.
If you happen to be a low tolerance user, these five strains are perfect for you:
A balanced 50-50 Indica-Sativa hybrid strain, ACDC is the perfect bud for those that can’t handle potent cannabis. This strain only has a 6% THC level, which is pretty odd considering that its name resembles the rock band that is popular for the song “Thunderstruck”.
ACDC provides you with a strong euphoric buzz that promotes a calming sensation. The same kind of high also tends to make you feel relaxed without having to force you into a sedated state of lethargy or laziness.
Because ACDC has a 20% CBD level, it can be used as a treatment for a lot of medical conditions. It is usually used as a treatment for inflammation, anxiety, arthritis, and mood disorders such as bipolarity.
This strain is a 75-25 Sativa-dominant hybrid that was specifically bred for medicinal purposes. It was created from Colombian Gold, Thai, and Swiss.
Harlequin provides you with a clear heady type of buzz that is typical of any kind of Sativa. However, it does not come with the potent psychoactive high that Sativas usually have. This is because Harlequin has a 5:2 CBD to THC ratio that counteracts any potent buzz that THC tends to induce.
This strain is famous as a pain-killing strain and is also often used to treat anxiety, stress, depression, and other mood-related disorders and conditions. Harlequin can also be effective against inflammation and fatigue considering its properties as a 75% Sativa-dominant hybrid.
- Charlotte’s Web
Anyone in the cannabis world knows who Charlotte Figi is. Several ago, this child was suffering from 300 seizures in a single week and was not getting any better with the treatments used on her. However, when CBD oil was used, her seizures dropped significantly from 300 to one.
Charlotte Figi’s story has led to the creation of Charlotte’s Web, a high-CBD strain that is 60% Indica. You can never get high on Charlotte’s Web because this strain is all CBD. In a sense, it is used primarily as a medicinal strain.
This strain works really well against seizures, migraine, fatigue, arthritis, body pain, and muscle spasms. Of course, it only makes sense that it works well against a lot of medical conditions considering that is bred for medicinal purposes.
Charlotte’s Web has also become one of the poster strains the cannabis legalization movement due to how the strain draws its roots from Charlotte Figi’s story.
- Sour Tsunami
Sour Tsunami draws its roots from Sour Diesel and NY Diesel. It is another one of those strains that were bred for medicinal purposes. It is also one of the first strains that were designed to have a high CBD count.
The good thing about Sour Tsunami is that it isn’t all about CBD. It has a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio, which means that you are also getting the lovely buzz that THC is known to deliver. Unlike other medicinal strains, you can actually get high by using Sour Tsunami. However, the type of high isn’t as potent as some strains with higher THC levels.
Bred by Lawrence Ringo, who said that this strain helped treat his own back pain, Sour Tsunami is known to deliver a type of high that isn’t too heavy and potent. Instead, this Sativa-dominant hybrid gives you a light heady buzz that works well with its pain-relieving qualities.
As mentioned, it was created for back pain treatment but can also work well against seizures, insomnia, stress, and nausea.
The lovechild of Sour Tsunami and Harlequin, this hybrid has a whopping 22% CBD count and only about 1% THC levels. This means that it hardly has any THC at all and is perfect for those that have low tolerance levels.
While Harle-Tsu probably won’t get you high enough, it may still induce a sense of euphoria that won’t have any kind of psychoactive effects thanks to the 20:1 CBD to THC ratio this strain has. Because of such characteristics, Harle-Tsu is known to be really effective at killing any type of body pain. It can also work well as an anti-inflammatory treatment. Some users tend to use this strain to take the edge off especially if they are suffering through a particularly stressful stage in their life.
