The CBD Crew comprises Jaime (of Resin Seeds) and Shantibaba (Mr Nice Seed Bank) who have been exploring the medically beneficial cannabidiol (CBD) production of a range of cannabis plants. Jaime started work on this a few years ago leading to the release of Resin Seeds Cannatonic strain which has equal proportions of THC and CBD at an average of around 6%. This strain generated so much interest that these two breeders decided to work together to explore this promising initiative further.
High CBD Medical Cannabis
These experiments with high CBD medical cannabis strains proved to be so successful that all of them developed so far have a ratio of THC:CBD of 1:1. Research has shown that cannabidiol is medically effective for a range of conditions: it is an anti-convulsive, anti-inflammatory as well as being effective against nausea and anxiety problems. In vitro tests have demonstrated that cannabidiol is also able to inhibit, and even stop, the growth of cancer cells which is deserving of far larger studies and more extensive research. In addition this substance is also an anti-psychotic and has a relaxing and calming effect which will hopefully lead to more investigation into treatments for schizophrenia. All tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol levels quoted for the CBD Crew strains are derived from tests carried out by independent laboratories.
The CBD Crew is fortunate to have received the endorsement of both Howard Marks (Mr Nice himself) as well as famous marijuana cultivation guru Jorge Cervantes. It is also forging close ties with a Californian organisation called the ProjectCBD.org.
