Cannabidiol, or CBD, is one of 85 active compounds of marijuana that has proved its health-promoting effects in many CBD studies. Today, CBD strains have reached general acceptance in the medical community as a medication with a highly therapeutic effect that can treat severe diseases.

There are numerous findings of CBD studies that support the established CBD's ability to reduce negative symptoms of different medical conditions and complicated ailments. Today, CBD strains are widely used to help cannabis patients with chronic pain, cancer, anxiety, epilepsy, PTSD, and other severe conditions.

Here is a list of marijuana strains with a high CBD content that have already proved their efficiency in recent cannabis studies.

Valentine X

This 50/50 hybrid was named after St. Valentine, who patrons epilepsy. This strain is famous for its exceptional potency ratio: 25 CBD:1 THC. Valentine X has the power to provide relief to people dealing with epileptic seizures, inflammation, and the side effects of chemotherapy treatment.


Zen is a hybrid blend of Afghani and Mexican Sativa with an increased calming effect inherited from the Lavender hybrids. This strain is well-known for its balanced content of CBD and THC that provides a great healing effect to patients suffering from stomach and digestive problems. Zen buds have an aromatic scent of sour berry with earthy hints.
