[infobox]This Recipe Uses a ‘High CBD’ concentrated strain of Cannabis

The Canna-Oil used in this particular recipe is considered high in CBD.   Thanks in part to cannabis’ legitimacy as a medical option, CBD is rivaling THC as the cannabinoid under stronger consideration.   CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, second only to THC when it comes to average volume.  Recently, research has shown CBD to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety properties without the psychoactive effects (the “high” or “stoned” feeling) that THC provides. CBD levels of over 4% are considered to be high.

This particular strain is named ‘Charlotte’s Web’.  It is believed to be the highest CBD strain in the world and contains 20% CBD.    High-CBD strain choices (whether from cannabis or agricultural hemp) makes it great for those who don’t want their medication to affect their daily activities.[/infobox]
