CBD and San Diego: 3 Questions

Where can I find flower high in Cannabidiol, otherwise known as CBD?

If you are a resident of San Diego, CA or Chula Vista, CA, a quick scan of the weedmaps.com menus from the top 3 Chula Vista, Ca, USA storefront marijuana dispensaries will yield you minimal results. You can find the highest lab tested strains reaching a benchmark high of 0.1% CBD in their flowers. It is not only important that a shop carry these high Cannabidiol (CBD) flowers for their patients, it is also important that they are quality assured and lab tested by the shop and the vendor.

Why is Cannabidiol an important component of cannabis flowers and who will gain the most benefit from these breeds of cannabis?

You can find a great discussion of cannabinoids on these two websites: Mary’s Medicinals and the CBD Project. In summary: CBD is a prime ingredient in medical cannabis flowers along with THC. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive. It has range of medical benefits which have been discovered through testing on animals. They include: suppressing seizures, reducing nausea and combating psychosis and inflammation. It has been also shown to be effective treatment against cancer/tumors, as a general anti-oxidant and finally CBD has been shown as an effective anti-depressant. To highlight the importance of this new and upcoming molecule here is a quote from the Project CBD website: “CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere.”

How easy are these flowers to find?

CBD rich flowers are available in most areas and states where there is a medical marijuana program in place. At A Green Alternative we recognize and embrace this trend in the cannabis industry. We are continually including these lab tested flowers on our menu. Some strains in the past include “Pennywise” and “Medical Mass” which have both tested above 10% total CBD content. We currently have our house strain “Edith G”, a sativa which tested back just under 13% CBD.

As the breeders continue to develop strains that are high in this component, A Green Alternative will acquire the newest and highest quality CBD flowers.  If you are wondering where to find the best CBD flower and products available come see our selection at A Green Alternative!

  1. Interesting article! I really didn’t know much at all about CBD. I didn’t realize that it was non-pyschoactive which I think is very important. It’s amazing that it can provided so many benefits!
