This multipurpose, high CBD strain is a great daytime tool for promoting focus and a calm demeanor. The list of conditions that ACDC may help is expansive and includes ADD, seizures and multiple sclerosis. ACDC comes in many forms—from flower and lotions to teas and tinctures.
Packed with CBD and little to no THC, ACDC is beneficial for medical marijuana patients seeking relief without the negative effects sometimes associated with cannabis. Bred by seed bank Resin Seeds, ACDC is a product of Cannatonic, a well-known, highly regarded medicinal strain. Expect decently large (about the size of your thumb) and leafy buds with amber-colored trichomes—a nod to this strain’s high CBD content.
ACDC is a hybrid strain that’s sativa-dominant. With a ratio of 20:1 CBD to THC, don’t expect any of the over-the-top mind and body sensations you’d get from cannabis strains with lots of THC. Often touted as non-psychoactive (all cannabis affects your brain in some way), this strain will alter your mental state but in a non-intoxicating manner. Expect a relaxed but uplifted high that can increase productivity and help you conquer social anxieties. ACDC’s nausea-quelling properties coupled with its ability to help those in chronic pain make it an easy choice for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
ACDC is a popular marijuana strain to look for in forms other than flower. Many companies make teas, lotions, capsules and tinctures that feature ACDC. It’s also common among raw cannabis juicers and can be used to mitigate the effects of accidental or over-consumption of THC.
