As the popularity of cannabis has increased, so have the levels of THC in available flower. Like any plant, cannabis can be bred to exhibit certain characteristics, such as higher concentrations of THC. While those who suffer from debilitating pain or chronic disease may require these higher levels, not everyone is well suited for these strains.
If you are new to the world of cannabis or someone who has a low tolerance, you may find yourself overwhelmed by many of the strains on the market today. Unfortunately, anxiety and paranoia are two common side effects often associated with high levels of THC, and it can be enough to turn someone off of cannabis entirely. What a crying shame.
What many people don’t realize is that there are ways to minimize these effects and it starts with selecting the right strain!
CBD has been proven to minimize some of the negative effects often associated with THC, such as anxiety and paranoia. Similar to how you can purchase edibles with an equal ratio of CBD to THC, you can also purchase cannabis strains with a 1:1 ratio. Furthermore, strains with virtually no THC content have been increasing in popularity as people desire the healing effects of CBD without the intoxication. Low THC strains are particularly popular among those who need to stay alert during the day.
While there are a number of low THC cannabis strains available on the market, there are two in particular that we love and carry!
Charlotte’s Web is a hemp cultivar with less than 0.3% THC that has gained popularity as an option for treating seizures, as well as a range of other medical conditions. This medical potency is due to its high-CBD content, which was specifically cultivated by Colorado breeders, The Stanley Brothers, for a young epileptic patient named Charlotte. Charlotte’s Web is a hemp-derived product with little to no psychoactive effects, making it great for those who don’t want their medication to affect their daily tasks.
Effects: Relaxed, Uplifted, Happy, Focused, Energetic
Medical Uses: Stress, Pain, Inflammation, Depression, Muscle Spasms
Flavours: Earthy, Pine, Citrus
CBD Shark is an 80/20 indica-dominant cannabis strain that offers an equal ratio of THC and CBD, a cannabinoid combination that helps patients treat an array of symptoms like pain, anxiety, and inflammation without the overly intoxicating effects induced by many high-THC strains. This clear-headed hybrid descends from a Shark Shock indica, but as for its second parent, we can only be sure that it was some high-CBD variety. Its aroma is comprised of sweet notes of fruit accented by subtle hints of garlic and herb.
Effects: Relaxed, Sleepy, Focused, Happy, Hungry
Medical Uses: Pain, Fatigue, Inflammation, Stress, Depression
Flavour: Pine, Mint, Earthy
What if you don’t want to smoke? Thankfully, there are a multitude of options for those who would rather ingest than inhale their cannabis.
For those who are concerned about the health implications of inhalation, prefer discretion, or want a measured dose, edibles are a great option. You can read about the differences between ingesting and inhaling cannabis HERE.

Our rule of thumb, regardless of if you’re new to the world of cannabis or not, is start low and go slow. Have a low dose edible or only take a couple puffs to see how you feel. There’s no wrong or right way to enjoy cannabis, but if you take your time, you’re sure to enjoy the experience a whole lot more!
