WVA Farm to Pocket: Our 2020 Fresh-frozen Farm Collaborations
You don’t need to be a foodie to get the farm-to-table concept of dining. It’s synonymous with freshness, vitality and flavor, while also indicating an eatery that sources from nearby farms, supports its local economy and is laser-focused on quality.
At Willamette Valley Alchemy, Farm-to-Pocket is no different. Instead of fruit and veggies, our extraction lab pulls the best cannabis from Oregon farms straight into a high-quality cartridge in your pocket.
Harvest season is wrapping up, and this year, we couldn’t be more excited to be working with four of our favorite Oregon growers to source fresh buds for our new solventless concentrates line, as well as our liquid live resins, live badder, live sauce and royal jelly. We freeze this flower immediately after harvest, preserving maximum terpenes and cannabinoids to give you the experience of a farm-fresh bud in cartridge form.
It’s an honor for us to work with growers like Rogue Farmer, Indigo Gardens, Fox Hollow Flora and East Fork Cultivars for our Farm-To-Pocket line. Not only do they source the hype strains from legendary seed companies and raise top-notch plants with incredible skill and the cleanest Oregon air, water and sunlight, they are hardworking small businesses like ourselves doing the right thing by providing local jobs, serving their communities and practicing sustainable farming. We love our farmers!
Meet our fresh-frozen farms for the 2020 harvest season, and get a preview of the strains they grew, with genetic info and test results, when available.
Rogue Farmer sits in the eponymous Rogue River area of southern Oregon, near Grants Pass. The sun-grown farm sources a stellar lineup of seeds from Dying Breed Seeds, Massive Creations, In-House Genetics, Seed Junky, Hella Seed Co, Ziplock Seeds, Oni Seed Co., Archive Seed Bank and many more. Owner Ryan Beyerlein has been growing cannabis for 35 years, and it shows: Just check out the test results for two of this year’s strains below, which Ryan shares on his Instagram.
WVA has been lucky to source from Ryan for the past two years. He’s been a key partner in our Watershed Initiative, and we even won a first-place trophy at the 2019 High Times Oregon Cannabis Cup for our P-Tang Pie Live Sauce made with flower from Rogue. We featured Rogue Farmer in our Farm-To-Pocket video this year, which also shows a bit more about our solventless process.

17 Truly High CBD Strains And Their Effects (The Complete List)
Cannabidiol, or in short CBD, is a non-psychoactive chemical compound found in all varieties of cannabis.
Unlike its mischievous cousin THC, it doesn’t create any mind-altering or hallucinogenic states of mind.
CBD works by interacting with the human endocannabinoid system, which is a physiological network that’s in charge of keeping the body in perfect balance on a cellular level.
The endocannabinoid system can be stimulated by three different kinds of cannabinoids:
- Endocannabinoids, which are made solely in our body;
- Phytocannabinoids which are found in cannabis;
- Synthetic cannabinoids, which are lab-made.
Using strains that are potent in both CBD and THC can produce astonishing effects because of the so-called entourage effect, where the two cannabinoids and terpenes work with each other to boost their effects.
This synergic effect isn’t useful only for medical users — CBD actually lessens the symptoms of paranoia and unrest caused by THC.
Another very important thing to consider is the ratio between CBD and THC.
Marijuana produces biphasic effects, which means that in small doses its cannabinoids create one effect and that larger doses may create some utterly contrasting ones.
Tetrahydrocannabinol, for example, can make you paranoid in larger quantities and very carefree and laid back in lower doses, so if you’re trying to achieve a casual, non-intrusive high, stick to strains where THC levels are low to moderate.

|1:0||Very high psychoactive effects, uplifted emotions, uncontrollable laugh.
More prominent side effects for novice users.
|2:1||Laugh and euphoria with calmer thoughts.

Very few side effects.
|1:2||Mild sedation and body relaxation.

Now that we’ve covered all the science behind cannabinoids, we can advance to the core of this piece, which are the actual CBD strains.
I will try to cover them with as much precision as possible, allowing you to have the most educated pick when choosing your perfect CBD strain.

List of High CBD Strains
Find the right strain for you
Whether you want to relieve anxiety, pain or depression, the right strain is out there. Use our online tool to narrow the search.
CBD Mango Haze
One of the most recognizable high-CBD strains is definitely CBD Mango Haze, delivering from 1:1 to 2:1 ratio between CBD and THC.
It has a tropical aroma with the flavors of mango and pineapple being the most prominent. It’s also an energizing sativa dominant, and because of this a lot of medicinal users are drawn to it.
CBD Critical Cure
A crossbreed between Critical Kush and a ruderalis strain, Critical Cure has around 2:1 CBD to THC ratio, and percentages around 11% CBD and 5% THC.
It’s an indica-dominant which makes it a perfect tool for ending the day in a calm manner.
A very gentle “highness” can occur with Critical Cure.
With one of the most reliable expressions of CBD (almost always in a 5:2 CBD-THC ratio), Harlequin also has some sativa-dominant uplifting qualities, with very slight euphoric effects, and because of this, it’s one of the most sought-after CBD strains on the market.
Lacking the “stoned” effect, it’s perfect for daytime activities while maintaining a soothing CBD experience.
The taste of these buds can range from sweet-like mango an earthy aroma.
A cross between Harlequin and Sour Tsunami (which will also be included in this list), this hybrid can have some colossal CBD levels (20:1 CBD to THC), but this number is somewhat relative as some phenotypes have around 1:1 ratio.
The Harle-Tsu seeds have about a 75% probability to express their massive CBD levels, which makes this strain a perfect partner in crime for anxiety, pain and inflammation while keeping your mind clear and paranoia-free.
Besides the awesome rock n roll name, ACDC also exhibits an out-of-this-world CBD to THC ratio of about 20:1, with a staggering 19% CBD levels.
These stats make this strain a wondrous source of CBD, with an almost non-existent intoxication effect.
As far as the taste goes, expect an earth-like flavour with a pinch of sweetness in it.
As a crossbreed between ACDC and Harle-Tsu, you can expect some powerful CBD levels, of course, ranging from 1:1 CBD to THC ratio, to a mind-boggling 24:1 CBD/THC.
It’s was named for the legendary CBD trailblazer and cannabis advocate Lawrence Ringo, and with such a potent strain holding his name, his legacy will continue to endure.
Stephen Hawking Kush
Named after one of the greatest minds of our time, SHK was created from crossbreeding Harle-Tsu and Sin City Kush.
With three available phenotypes, CBD levels can range from 5% to 20% CBD, and the phenotype that has the most CBD exudes a 5:1 ratio of CBD to THC.
Expect a fruity/minty flavor with a twist of cherry, and a slight cerebral high.
With CBD ranging from 6 to 17 percent, and THC levels staying at under 6%, this hybrid strain delivers many medical benefits such as anxiety, pain, spasms and an instant relief from headaches, without the anxiousness and paranoia that can happen with too much THC.
Awesome for daily consumption, expect an earthy fragrance with a touch of citrus on your taste buds.
CBD Oil is Not a Cure-All But Here’s What It Is
This strain has around 10-11% CBD, while the THC content stays at about 6-10%. It’s also one of the first strains bred specifically for its high CBD levels.
Stress, depression, anxiety, but also pain and inflammation are rapidly relieved with Sour Tsunami, which has a musky piquant flavor with some sugary connotations.
Sweet & Sour Widow
With a balanced CBD-THC ratio of 1:1 (and 5-10% of both cannabinoids), this 70% indica 30% sativa hybrid offers great medicinal benefits with a slight and pleasant THC-high feeling.
This strain is great for new cannabis consumers because of its perfectly balanced cannabinoid profile, but with this much CBD it also fantastic for medicinal users who don’t want to get too blazed.
This awesome strain has one of the lowest levels of THC (usually at around 0.3%), and CBD levels at 17%, so you can expect serious medical possibilities with minimal psychoactivity related to THC.
Charlotte’s Web was made famous back in 2013 when it helped a little girl named Charlotte who’s suffering from Dravet Syndrome, a type of epilepsy with numerous seizures a day.
Because of the practically non-existent THC concentration, it’s extremely suitable for pediatric use.
This Cannatonic / Sour Tsunami hybrid has an equal range of about 10% CBD and 10% THC, making it a clear-headed and casual option for those looking for CBD health-benefits.
The high CBD levels keep the THC mental attack in check, and the flavor of this strain is also very rewarding, with a mixture of citrus sourness and earth-like aroma. Great for daytime use because of the generally upbeat vibe it brings about in people.
Another 1:1 CBD-THC strain, Pennywise is an indica cross from Harlequin and Jack the Ripper, with levels of both cannabinoids ranging from 12% to 15%.
This “dreadful” strain is amazing in battling for a great number of health issues including arthritis, epilepsy and cancer manifestations.
Because of the balanced structure and delicious flavors of coffee and pepper-bubblegum, Pennywise is ideal for daytime sessions.
A new strain coming from Oregon, Corazon is an ACDC x Charlotte’s Web cross, and it really packs a CBD punch, because testing confirmed levels of 22,5%CBD and only a 2.70% THC.
This makes Corazon (which is still only scarcely available), the highest scoring CBD strain on planet Earth at this very moment.
Blue Dragon Desert Frost
Another newcomer from Oregon’s Yerba Buena cannabis farm, the BDDF strain packs a powerful CBD punch at approximately 17% CBD and just a tiny 0.6% THC.
This of course means these buds have a wicked healing potential, with a minimal psychoactive trait of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
A 50-50 indica sativa hybrid, Valentine X has a staggering 25:1 CBD to THC ratio, making it one of the go-to strains for a bunch of health issues, like seizures, inflammation, and even cancer.
Named after a saint of love and courtship, St Valentine is also a patron saint of epilepsy, and this strain was given this name because CBD is currently the most powerful medicine for these types of seizures.

CBD Critical Mass
An indica-dominant hybrid, CBD Critical Mass produces a ratio that ranges from 1:1 (CBD/THC) to about 2:1 (CBD/THC), and the growers report that it’s genetic parents are the famed Critical Mass strain and an unknown CBD-potent strain.
This hybrid is known to produce generous yields and is generally perfect like so many other strains in this list for a massive array of medical issues.

79 thoughts on “17 Truly High CBD Strains And Their Effects (The Complete List)”
A friend has had a grand mal seizure disorder, of sudden onset, for 25 years. That is, it did not start in childhood. The focus of the seizures is deep in the brain, and psychosurgery hasn’t been available until relatively recently. The focus, if it can be located, is deep in the brain and traditional surgery would have likely caused major braindamage or personality changes. Now, w/ laser surgery and robotic methods, surgery may be possible. However, the other major problem, is that 10 years ago, she developed a bilateral polyneuropathy in both lower legs and ankles. In addition, there seems to be a hyperbaric effect caused by the neuropathy. So, whenever a storm is coming in, the drop in the barometric pressure causes her ankles to swell. The poly neuropathy is extremely painful—and nothing works. Nothing. Not opiates, TMS, various lidocaine creams, lamictal, no anti-depressant and so on. The pain is excruciating, and she cannot lie flat in a bed. There is a small possibility that the surgery, if it could stop the seizures would obviate the need for the anti-seizure meds that caused the polyneuropathy in the first place.
She is extremely reluctant to try marijuana b/c of the odor and smoke (obviously not there in an edible) and the possibilities of munchies. Also, when she was in college in the 70’s, several friends became “stoners”—obtunded, passive people w/ no motivation. She deoesn’t want that to happen, nor doe she want to badly influence her 20 year pld son w/ her marijuana use.
It seems to me that, the strains w the highest CBD content and no or very little THC content might be best for her. Ideally, the strain should address, first, the severe pain, second, the anxiety and depression, as well as third, anti-seizure activity.
She lives in CO.
Can you recommend a strain that might help her? The pain is the most important symptom to be addressed. Cost is also important, but wouldn’t make use impossible. She’s on disability.
Sheila Wall, MD
Hi Sheila, you might have already found something to help your friend so this will be mute.
However, in the event, she’s still searching, I find with such an issue, 1:1 ratios are much better than just cbd.
You probably don’t know this but dispensaries have budtenders who are trained in guiding you toward the right strain. I know in AZ there are physicians associated with dispensaries but I think that is so you can get a card which I think you don’t have to do in CO.
Granddaddy Purple saved my life.
Thank you for info, need to know if it will help with short term memory loss due to concussion. I was considering Charlotte’s Web, does it come in oil drop form.
Israel, Germany and Switzerland pier reviewed science in 2020 states that it is THC, noot cbd for short term memory and dementia.
I have mild aspergers, looking at me and day to day no one notices (they are shocked when I tell them) but I feel different and I feel like my brain processes things different. The only person who notices is my girlfriend because in high stress situation with her (because I’m comfortable) I end up freaking out with my anxiety that I deal with on a daily bases.
I’m looking for a strain that will calm me down and not give me anxiety and let me release some of my anxiety, that will let me go around day to day normal and functional.
When I smoke I feel like I’m just a normal person and I don’t think that I am different. I really hope to find a strain that will reduce my anxiety and also give me energy for the day.
I would suggest any strain that high in CBD, because this cannabinoid is proven to diminish anxiety.
If you’re using strains that have both CBD and THC, just make sure that it doesn’t have to much THC, as it’s quite possible that the excess levels of THC will induce anxiety, or even paranoia.
Also, you should focus on Indicas or Indica-dominant hybrids, because Sativa strains tend to be more energetic and much less relaxing and calming than Indicas.
I hope this helps, and if you’re from Canada, you should check out our strain finder tool https://greencamp.com/strainblazer/.
Hey man I have aspergers and bi-polar. My anxiety has almost killed me before. I found the best strain for stomping out my anxiety, like literally instantly, is any Indica strain crossed with “black Domina” it’s not a cbd strain. You can smoke a bowl of cbd with it.
My favorite is Black Dog, I have this at home 24/7 for when my anxiety hits.
