Lineage and MorphologyTo start, we examine the lineage of each of our four high-CBD strains, along with a discussion of the morphology or structure.
As its name indicates, Afghani CBD is a descendant of the strain Afghani, itself a landrace indica strain from Afghanistan. During cultivation, the plant is short to medium, with light-to medium green fan leaves. According to our growing team, it develops large, medium-density flowers.
Cannatonic is a hybrid strain developed in Spain as a cross of the indica MK Ultra and the hybrid G-13 Haze. Cannatonic grows tall and produces smaller flowers.
Sweet Skunk CBD is a sativa like its parent strain, Island Sweet Skunk, and grows tall, producing sativa-like fan leaves. Its flowers are on the smaller side and have a compact structure.
Warlock CBD, a hybrid strain, is a descendant of the indica-dominant hybrid strain Warlock. A stout plant, it produces a great deal of indica-like, light to medium green fan leaves and large, medium-density flowers
CannabinoidsIn terms of cannabinoid production, all four of our high-CBD strains produce similar levels of THC and CBD, with varying ratios of one to the other.
Closer inspection of each strain shows that Afghani CBD is CBD dominant, producing on average 10.9% CBD to 8.4% THC. Likewise, Sweet Skunk CBD produces more CBD (9.9%) than THC(7%). Cannatonic produces more THC than CBD, 11.7% to 8.9%. Warlock CBD offers an almost perfect one to one ratio; 11% CBD to 10.9% THC.
TerpenesAs seen in the graph above, terpene production varies greatly from strain to strain. Here are our takeaways from this data:
- All of the CBD strains produce a high amount of myrcene. However, Afghani CBD stands out not only among the CBD strains but as one of Tilray’s top myrcene producing strains to date.
- Warlock CBD is the top producer of limonene, linalool, caryophyllene and trans-nerolidol.
- Cannatonic edges out the other strains in pinene production.
