CBD vs THC Cannabis Seeds South Africa

Before looking at buying CBD weed seeds in South Africa, we will help you understand the difference between regular seeds and CBD seeds.

Regular Weed Seeds

A regular cannabis seed grows plants that produce flowers containing predominantly THC. THC is the most well-known cannabinoid, and it is also the one responsible for getting you high. Smoking or consuming these flowers will produce the psychoactive effects associated with cannabis. You can learn more about the different cannabis cannabinoids from this research paper.

CBD Weed Seeds

CBD seeds grow plants that produce flowers containing higher levels of CBD than regular weed seeds. It is important to know that CBD weed seeds don’t always contain more CBD than THC, just higher levels than normal.

Depending on what strain you choose, the ratio of CBD to THC will be different. Common ratios include 1:1, 2:1, 5:1, 10:1, and higher. These 1:0 CBD strains are marketed as ‘low levels of THC’ (<1%).
