I noticed more and more seed banks are offering strains with noticeable levels of CBD. It's pretty amazing. I'd read someplace a while back that by the 1990's, CBD had all but but been bred out of marijuana. Mostly due to the underground trying to make ganja more potent for consumers wanting to get high. I'm not exactly sure when someone realized CBD had medical uses without the psychoactive high. I muse that it was a pharmaceutical company. In any event, medical marijuana blew up on the media when the parent's of a little girl named Charlotte with Dravet Syndrome moved to Colorado looking for, and finding, a strain of cannabis that had high levels of CBD and nearly zero THC. -The strain was renamed Charlotte's Web and is about 20% CBD and <0.2% THC. The growers originally called the strain "Hippies Disappointment". I got curious, and knew that CBD Crew Seeds had done a lot with CBD strains and one of the first to specialize in it. I looked up CBD Crew seeds, and they have been in it for a while. The owner created Catatonnic in 2009 while working with another seed bank named Resin Seeds. I suppose those from CBD Crew could fill in a lot of blanks here on the history of CBD dominant cannabis strains. But forwarding to 2018, and it looks like many people and seed banks are furiously trying to create new, often from scratch, cannabis strains with varying levels of CBD. When I say from scratch, I mean crossing strains with new land race strains or a random hemp plant, rather than older CBD strains already on the market. I think, at least with politicians, medical uses of cannabis will be a bigger driver for their vote than the recreational side of the equation.
