Top Ten Strains for Medicinal Use


As prohibition crumbles in a growing number of jurisdictions and ever increasing numbers of people are able to legally use cannabis as a medicine, we thought we would highlight some of our favourite strains for medicinal use. Although CBD rich strains have grabbed the spotlight recently in discussions on cannabis therapeutics, let’s not forget that THC is by far the most researched cannabinoid for medicinal use, and that its use is well supported scientifically for certain conditions. By comparison, CBD research is still in its infancy, in spite of increasing numbers of anecdotal reports of its therapeutic efficacy. Our list is inclusive to cater for diverse needs, and includes high THC strains, CBD rich strains, more balanced ratios of the two cannabinoids, and some novel strains with unusually high levels of newly sought after cannabinoids such as CBG and THCV. #10 Seedsman CBG #1 This photo-period strain has been specially bred to produce very high levels of CBG (Cannabigerol), a cannabinoid which is usually present in low concentrations in typical cannabis samples. CBG is the ‘mother compound’ in the cannabis plant, from which all the psychoactive compounds that we know and love are produced. During the flowering cycle CBGA (the acid form of CBG) is the first cannabinoid that the plant biosynthesises. This is then converted into THCA (the precursor of THC), CBDA (the precursor of CBD), and CBCA (the precursor of CBC and CBL) with the help of enzymes. It has recently attracted attention for its purported antibacterial, antitumor, analgesic, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties, putting it in the running alongside CBD for its therapeutic potential, legal status, and the fact that it doesn’t get you high. Seedsman CBG#1 grows in all environments, indoors, outdoors and in a greenhouse. Its indoor flowering time is between 10 – 12 weeks with…
