A Taste of Turin
Italy might not be the first place you think of where world-class cannabis is concerned. Nevertheless, the Italians have produced some seriously impressive strains over the years – therapeutic and recreational alike. Positioned proudly on the therapeutic side of the scale, CBD Carmagnola is an impressive medical cannabis strain with tons of CBD and next to no THC.
Depending on the quality of the batch you pick up, you could be looking at anything from 9% to a huge 15% CBD, typically coupled with a THC content that rarely surpasses 0.3%, which isn’t enough to have any discernible effect whatsoever.
In addition, this also means that CBD Carmagnola can be legally bought, sold and consumed in many places where recreational cannabis is illegal. Restrictions usually state that anything with 0.3% THC or less is permitted – anything stronger being prohibited.
Originally curated in Turin, CBD Carmagnola has now gone well and truly global. Once a rare strain to track down, this cannabis can now be picked up in the form of quality feminized seeds to grow your own at home. Though to say this stuff needs plenty of space to do her thing would be something of an understatement. Left to her own devices in ideal conditions, CBD Carmagnola can reach dizzying heights of around 6 meters.
The payoff is not only a fantastic therapeutic cannabis strain, but also the potential to harvest up to 1kg from every single plant. Indoor cultivation is more or less out of the question, but growing outdoors shouldn’t be an issue as this is a legal plant to cultivate in many regions - one that has all the fantastic flavor and fragrance of a more conventional strain, without the intoxicating effects of THC.
Flavor and Fragrance of CBD Carmagnola Feminized
Contrary to popular belief, CBD-dominant cannabis strains can be just as fragrant and flavorful as their THC-heavy counterparts. In some instances, considerably more so.
CBD Carmagnola is a prime example to illustrate the point, which has one of the most fantastically intoxicating tropical fruit fragrance with plenty of sharp citrus. All of which is flanked by masses of dank and musky earth when the buds are broken, intensified further when combusted.
To smoke or vape this herb is to have no idea you’re actually hitting a strain that isn’t going to get you high. It produces the most fantastically rich, decadent and flavorful smoke – as tasty and satisfying as anything you’ve ever experienced. The fruity and slightly spicy aftertaste is an absolute joy, as is the way CBD Carmagnola fills the room with a fantastic aroma that lingers indefinitely.
This may be a pure-Sativa strain, but you wouldn’t know it from her effects. Or should that be, her distinct lack thereof. Given the fact that CBD Carmagnola typically contains no more than 0.3% THC, there’s really no ‘high’ to speak of in the traditional sense.
But what’s interesting is the way in which smoking this pot for purely recreational purposes can still be an absolute joy. For one thing, there’s the all-round enjoyment of that extraordinary fragrance and flavor profile.
Secondly, inhaling anything that isn’t oxygen-rich fresh air leads to a certain degree of oxygen deprivation, which can bring on a mild and temporary ‘head-rush’ of sorts.
You can smoke this stuff for hours and it isn’t going to get you remotely blazed. That said, hand a joint to someone who’s no idea it’s THC-free and the placebo-effect can be quite interesting!
Medical Uses of CBD Carmagnola Feminized
CBD-heavy cannabis strains like these are not about instant gratification or fast-acting relief. Instead, they’re about building towards a cumulative effect with time. CBD has been linked with a wide variety of therapeutic benefits, which in most cases are a result of regular consumption. To put it another way, you don’t smoke CBD weed and immediately feel massive relief from whatever’s bothering you at the time.
That said, give it a while and CBD can be even more effective than any number of conventional medications. Conditions known to respond particularly well to CBD include depression, anxiety, stress, joint pains, muscle spasms, ADHD and the symptoms of PTSD.
The benefit of strains like CBD Carmagnola is that you can use them any place and any time (for the most part), without getting high and without getting in trouble - be sure to check your local laws, though!
Growing CBD Carmagnola Feminized Seeds
If you’ve both space and time in plentiful supply, this stuff can be an absolute joy to grow. On one hand, you could argue that yes – she's definitely not the quickest strain to cultivate. You could be looking at a good six months before your plants reach fruition, which is largely due to their enormous size.
Treat your CBD Carmagnola Feminized plants to ideal conditions and they can easily reach heights of 6 meters. Hence, all the trimming and pruning in the world isn’t going to make indoor cultivation a realistic possibility!
On the plus side, this hybrid is more than resilient and durable enough to grow in even cooler northern European climates. Support may be needed along the way to prevent your plants from collapsing under their own weight, but the rest more or less takes care of itself.
Remarkably, a single well-grown plant has the capacity to produce as much as 1kg of superior therapeutic cannabis. And again, the fact that this is a low-THC strain means there’s every chance it’ll be legal to grow in your area. Though be sure to check beforehand, so you don’t end up in bother.
The properties of CBD Carmagnola have made her a new-generation superstar strain of epic proportions. Primarily enjoyed by therapeutic cannabis users, there’s still so much to be said for this herb's recreational appeal - particularly if you're looking to enjoy everything that’s fantastic about quality weed, without blazing yourself into kingdom come.
Often measuring for up to 15% CBD with a THC content of less than 0.3%, it’s practically impossible to get high – irrespective of how much you smoke. Though it’s not as if quantity is an issue with CBD Carmagnola – give your plants what they need and they could give you up to 1kg of weed per-plant in return.
