Take a look back in time at the best CBD entrants to all the Cannabis Cups of 2015. Non-psychoactive on its own, CBD acts as an anti-inflammatory, analgesic and is being investigated for its reported anti-cancer properties. Find out the lineage, lab results and judges’ commentary of the top three in every category.
Many winners took heavy-hitting CBD mainstays like Cannatonic or Harlequin and crossed them with flavor kings like Girl Scout Cookies or Skywalker OG. These fantastic combos awed judges across the board, while continuing to deliver active doses of CBD.
Not just for medicinal patients, strains with CBD have different psychoactive effects than strains with only THC. While the breadth of its effects is unknown, CBD stimulates the same receptors in the brain THC does, CB1, but in a different way.
CBD strains can have unique flavors reminiscent of cherries. In fact, pure CBD notoriously tastes of cherries when inhaled. Like banana, strawberry, grape, blueberry, apricot, tangerine, grapefruit, etc., cherries are simply another delicious recreation of nature from cannabis bred for flavor.
