All the Therapy, Without the Psychoactivity
It used to be the case that cannabis was associated with getting high, and the psychoactive effects. These days modern science and open-minded thinking has led to the extensive study of cannabidiol (CBD), and marijuana is now more well-loved than ever fo the therapeutic benefits, too.
For many tokers seeking the medical effects of cannabis, the THC in some of the most beneficial strains can be overwhelming, particularly in those unfamiliar to or sensitive to THC - hence the development of strains such as CBD Ratio (1:30) Feminized, where the CBD is considerably higher, and the THC is as low as it gets.
The exact origins of this pot are unknown as her secrets have been carefully guarded, but it’s safe to say that she’s the result of breeding between two high CBD strains of superior, stable genetics since she exhibits such exceptional traits.
Though the Indica-leaning of this strain does mean that the THC exudes certain calming and relaxing effects, this herb is predominantly a medicinal, therapeutic strain designed and bred to avoid any psychoactive buzz as part of the therapy.
CBD Ratio (1:30) Fem is thankfully a simple strain to grow, even for beginners - making this a choice plant for those seeking an all-natural alternative to OTC prescribed medications. Due to her Indica structure, she requires some pruning to allow for proper light and airflow. Generally though, this weed is resilient and resistant to any common problems in cultivation, and harvests copious yields with minimum effort.
Flavor and Fragrance of CBD Ratio (1:30) Feminized
Breaking apart the properly dried and cured buds of CBD Ratio (1:30) Fem is to surround yourself with the fresh and invigorating fragrance of nature, as the nugs emit an aroma of pine and damp earth that becomes spicy in flavor once combusted.
For recreational tokers, one of the most crucial things about choosing a strain is the level of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), as this is the chemical compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive effects. But for medicinal tokers, this has very little bearing on strain choice, as the most important, non-psychoactive substance in weed for potent medical effects is cannabidiol (CBD), which works to counteract THC as well as providing therapeutic benefits.
Since CBD Ratio (1:30) Feminized has an enormous 30% CBD content, that makes her a particularly excellent strain for the medical marijuana (MMJ) community, but not so much for the recreational smokers out there, as the 1% THC barely gets a look in - though it does make for a soothing and relaxing sensation that calms tokers without inducing mind fog or lethargy.
Even though this herb is low in THC, there’s still a chance that some mild discomforts associated with the compound may present themselves, including red, dry and bloodshot eyes and cottonmouth. Thankfully, these are easily counteracted with plenty of water, as hydration is key when consuming any strain of cannabis.
Medical Uses of CBD Ratio (1:30) Feminized
The most predominant feature of CBD Ratio (1:30) Fem is of course, her hefty CBD content. CBD has long been considered to be highly therapeutic for a variety of physical and mental health conditions, and due to the potency of this particular herb, she’s also fast-acting and long-lasting with little chance of adverse side effects due to the low THC content present.
CBD Ratio (1:30) functions as an anxiolytic and an antidepressant for the treatment of stress, anxiety and depression and various mood disorders including PTSD and bipolar disorder. These buds can clear the mind of worry, cynicism and intrusive negative thought by regulating the levels of serotonin and dopamine in the brain.
In addition to this, this pot is an anticonvulsant, and can provide calming effects to aid those suffering from spasticity or seizures.
This weed also boasts antiemetic and appetite boosting effects, which can be of help to those struggling with a lack of appetite or nausea - particularly nausea induced as a side effect of chemotherapy.
It must also be mentioned that CBD Ratio (1:30) Fem contains analgesic, anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxing properties that can exert potent pain-relieving effects on such conditions as headaches, migraines, arthritis, fibromyalgia, gastrointestinal disorders, cramps and multiple sclerosis.
Growing CBD Ratio (1:30) Feminized Seeds
This Indica-heavy hybrid strain is a short and stocky specimen that’s hassle-free and simple to cultivate even for novice growers, as she’s ideal for indoor growing and requires little in the way of height management.
Naturally resilient, CBD Ratio (1:30) Feminized is already resistant to common molds, pathogens, disease and even adverse weather conditions, so she’s sure to thrive whether grown in a grow room or tent, or outdoors.
As she matures, this plant will bear dense colas, smothered in sticky, sparkling trichomes. This, in combination with a compact bud structure, means that these beauties will require regular pruning to ensure they receive ample light penetration and airflow through her lower branches. This will also prevent bud rot, and ensures that the plant’s energy and nutrients are diverted to her multiple budding sites, thereby increasing the final yields.
CBD Ratio (1:30) Fem’s seeds are all-fem, so no weeding out of male specimens is required to prevent pollination. She also responds well to low-stress training (LST), particularly topping and the Screen of Green (SCROG) method. Both of these techniques further maximize the harvests you can reap from this plant, particularly when paired with a hydroponics setup - the ideal substrate for encouraging explosive growth.
Providing this strain with 18 to 20 hours of light from a 600-watt HPS or LED grow lamp should ensure that you’re able to reap at least 500 grams of her sticky nugs per square meter, after around 8 to 9 weeks of flowering. Outdoors, you can expect 400 to 500 grams per plant.
Boasting exceptionally high CBD levels and a surprisingly low THC content, CBD Ratio (1:30) Feminized boasts immense and intense long-lasting relief for those in the MMJ community seeking reprieve from psychological and physical symptoms without the psychoactive properties associated with many other CBD-heavy strains.
Capable of easing stress, anxiety and seizures alongside physical discomforts such as migraines and fibromyalgia, this weed is a natural, side effect free alternative for patients looking for alternatives to traditionally prescribed meds.
Simple to grow even for a novice, CBD Ratio (1:30) is a stable specimen that’s sturdy and robust, and resilient to most common cannabis problems. Her harvests are prolific and her buds trichome-coated and dense, making this an unmissable medicinal strain for any cannabis connoisseur.
