In the world of weed, THC and CBD are often considered to be on opposite sides of the consumption spectrum. Those who enjoy the psychoactive side effects of cannabis tend toward THC and many medicinal cannabis consumers like CBD products. But this division of cannabinoids is an old stereotype which is quickly being proven untrue as more and more people are exposed to weed through the legalization that's sweeping the nation.

Cannatonic is one of the more well-known high CBD strains out there and can boast a CBD percentage of anywhere between 6 and 15 percent. The THC percentage of Cannatonic is more predictable and usually clocks in at around 5 or 6 percent. This hybrid strain is a cross between G13 Haze and MK Ultra and consumers report the high as mellow and calm. Since the CBD percentage can easily beat out THC in Cannatonic, many consumers use this strain for pain relief and management. The smell of Cannatonic is described as earthy and citrusy.

Unlike its clown counterpart, the cannabis strain Pennywise is known by its consumers to have a calming balance between THC and CBD. A cross between Jack the Ripper and Harlequin, it's easy to see how the namers of this strain chose such an ominous title. Despite the name though, consumers report Pennywise's 1:1 THC to CBD ratio makes it the ideal strain for anyone looking to combat pain and feel a nice buzz while doing so. Consumers of Pennywise report the high as being absolutely perfect for enjoying a blissed-out high while also experiencing the benefits CBD can bring. Rather than having an aggressive high, Pennywise could help you chill out without excess paranoia and anxiety (which high THC strains are known to do). So, pick yourself up some Pennywise and you'll have spent your pennies wisely!

Sweet and Sour Widow

Sweet and Sour Widow is an indica-dominant strain with an unusually long name. The offspring of White Widow, Sweet and Sour Widow is most well-known as having a great 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD. Consumers of Sweet and Sour Widow report this strain as having a mild, calming high with mellow effects. The scent is sweet and piney with some notes of citrus. While Sweet and Sour Widow isn't the most common strain at the dispensary, it's still worth asking around to see if you can get your hands on this well-balanced and surprisingly delicious strain.

If you're the kind of cannabis consumer who appreciates pain relief as well as a nice high, any and all of these strains are a great choice! Alternatively, you can always play around and combine different strains you already know and like in the same bowl or joint (or anything else) for the ultimate THC to CBD ratio! You don't have to breed weed to customize your cannabis consumption experience.
