For some of us, the goal of smoking isn’t completely recreational. Occasionally it’s nice to experience the relaxing, comforting and other medicinal properties of weed without risking anxiety or paranoia. Of course, this is especially true for medicinal users who want to smoke during the day but still be able to function. THC low strains serve a multitude of purposes, for a wide variety of people. Some of us don’t react as well to THC as others, and low THC options can offer a comfortable and controlled high with all of the pleasant parts of being stoned. THC can cause issues for those who are using cannabis to lessen the side effects of mental illnesses. Those who suffer from anxiety or depression can find a lot of relief in cannabis as long as the THC isn’t there threatening to make things worse. Finally, medicinal users who require effective pain relief or an anti-inflammatory but don’t want the psychotropic side of the drug can find comfort in a low THC strain.

This strain is perfect for anyone who wants something calm, collected and comfortable where they don’t have to worry about their tolerance. Its primary function is as a medicinal strain, due to its phenomenal medicinal properties. She has been used to reduce the side effects of difficult to control illnesses such as epilepsy, PTSD, rheumatoid arthritis, alcoholism, diabetes, infections, and a variety of neurological disorders.

Cannatonic is an award-winning medicinal strain that boasts a 1:1 THC to CBD ratio. The THC sits at around 6 – 7% with a CBD level of 5% and up. She won both the 3rd Prize Sativa Cup HTCC 2008 and the 2013 HTCC – CBD Flowers Prize. Cannatonic is a balance of Indica and Sativa that produces a comfortable effect that reduces muscle spasms. Medicinally it can also be used by those suffering from HIV/AIDS, nausea, pain and inflammation. Though it is primarily used for these issues Cannatonic has almost endless medicinal uses. It has a balanced effect so isn’t too sleepy or too peppy. It just reduces the stresses of medicinal issues allowing users to go about their day or evening unaffected. Cannatonic is also a dream for growers as it is easy to cultivate and produces large yields. Usually, this strain will produce yields of around 500g/m2 when it is grown indoors. These yields can be raised slightly by using hydroponic growing methods. The outdoor yield will be slightly lower but not significantly, this also depends on where in the world it is being grown. She will usually finish flowering in 7 – 8 weeks but benefits from a little extra maturing time. Most growers would give her around 9 – 10 weeks for the best possible results. She will grow well indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse.
