CBD and San Diego: 3 Questions

The CBD Molecule.

The CBD Molecule.

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!

America’s Finest City. Downtown San Diego, CA 92101

Delivering marijuana to the citizens of America’s Finest City offers up many challenges. I am constantly living in dread of lethargic I-5 traffic. There’s an ever present danger of drivers making rapid multiple lane changes and heaven forbid a random rain storm befalls our blithe, sun-drenched city and sets its drivers into a frenzy.  Even once I clear all of those hurdles and arrive at my destination there’s still parking. I’m only one part of the cycle and the medical cannabis business in San Diego has many inherent difficulties, however I love my job and that I get to meet a variety of awesome and remarkable people from every walk of life. Once I arrive at my patient’s home, all of this fades and I’m able to focus on the fun part of my job: meeting new people and bringing them MMJ of the highest quality.
