CBD Cannabis Psychoactive Effects?

Scientifically speaking, CBD cannabis and marijuana are the same genus and species of plants.

The difference between CBD cannabis and marijuana comes down to the THC content.

CBD cannabis has low concentrations of THC and high concentrations of CBD.

The high ratios of CBD to THC in CBD cannabis decreases the euphoric”high” common with marijuana.

But what you lose in “high,” you gain in relaxation and anti-anxiety effects.

CBD has consistent anti-anxiety effects while THC can sometimes cause unsettling and anxious feelings.


The opposite is true of marijuana.

Marijuana’s ratio of THC to CBD causes the classic euphoria associated with smoking “weed.”

But, because of the high THC to CBD ratio, marijuana may also cause anxiety.



CBD Cannabis Legal Status

The difference between CBD cannabis, hemp, and marijuana comes down entirely to their THC content and federal legal status.


Since 2018, CBD cannabis and hemp have been legal federally while marijuana remains illegal.



How can the same species and genus of plant be illegal and legal federally at the same time?

According to federal law, it all comes down to the THC content of the plant.  (1)

THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol.

THC is the cannabinoid responsible for the euphoric effect of marijuana.



THC is a cannabinoid naturally created by the cannabis plant.

THC is the psychoactive compound in cannabis that gets people”high.” (2)

Federal law says that any cannabis plant with less than 0.3% THC content is hemp (CBD cannabis) and not “marijuana.”

On the other hand, any plant with more than the allowable limit of 0.3% THC is marijuana and a schedule 1 controlled substance regulated by the DEA. (3)

That’s it.  

That’s the only difference between marijuana and CBD cannabis and hemp — the THC content of any given plant.

THC content is the only difference between legal hemp (CBD cannabis) and federally illegal marijuana.


The 2018 Farm Bill legalizing hemp is—of course—a great thing.

It means we can enjoy the significant body and mood-altering effects of all the other great cannabinoids, like CBD, CBN, and CBG.

Let’s find out about some of the best CBD cannabis strains for feeling good and keeping a clear head.

Check out this video of live rosin being pressed from freshly cured Charlotte’s Web nugs.

Feel good CBD honey rosin…

Charlotte’s Web gained notoriety because of its nonintoxicating benefits for children with epilepsy.

Charlotte’s Web helped tell the story of the healing potential of CBD cannabis.

In turn, Charlottes Web pushed forward the entire cannabis legalization effort in the United States.





Charlotte’s Web Health Benefits

This storied CBd cannabis strain delivered the good news about the health benefits of CBD for Epilepsy.



Charlotte’s Web has wide-ranging benefits well beyond helping children with epilepsy. (7)


People turn to Charlotte’s Web for:

  • its calming effects

Consumers love this strain for its pleasant effect on the mind and body.

Charlotte’s Web can lift you when you’re down.

It can even spur creativity.

The source of its effects is no secret.

Its benefits come directly from its diverse cannabinoid profile.


cannabidiol certificate analysis


Cannabinoids like CBD and CBG mimic the natural signaling agents that control a vital system in your body.

That system is called the endocannabinoid system. (8)



Endocannabinoid System

Your endocannabinoid system affects everything from metabolism to emotional balance.  (9)(10)

Interested in more in-depth look at the endocannabinoid system and CBD’s effects?  Check out this beginner’s guide to CBD.

Your endocannabinoid system maintains regulatory chemical balance (homeostasis) in your body and brain. (11)



The endocannabinoid system uses cannabinoids to regulate this balance.

The endocannabinoid system is the key to why CBD cannabis has such powerful effects.

CBD and other cannabinoid compounds actually help to restore chemical balance to your body and mind.

Cannabis cannabinoids mimic the natural endogenous cannabinoids that your body makes.

Your body uses these cannabinoids (like CBD) to send signals throughout your greater endocannabinoid system.

Each cannabis strain has a different cannabinoid profile.

That profile, in turn, affects your endocannabinoid system differently.

That is the reason for different strains have either uplifting or depressive effects, energizing or relaxing effects.

Each strain has a different cannabinoid profile.

Cannabis is a truly amazing plant and Charlotte’s Web is an outstanding CBD strain.



Charlotte’s Web Terpene Profile

Charlotte’s Web is high in the terpene myrcene which contributes to its calming and focusing effects.

myrcene terpene cbd hemp

Myrcene gives the strain a mildly fruity scent.

Charlotte’s Web’s otherwise “piney” bouquet comes from its high pinene terpene content.


pinene terpene cbd hemp


This strains high pinene content coupled with CW’s unique cannabinoid profile may account for the increased creativity some experience after smoking.



Caryophyllene Pain Relief

The terpene caryophyllene is also present in significant quantities in this CBD cannabis strain.

caryophyllene cbd hemp terpene

Caryophyllene has some of the most exciting benefits of any terpene for pain relief.

Caryophyllene is especially good at helping hard to treat pain.

Additionally, caryophyllene may have significant anti-cancer benefits, according to a 2016 study in the journal Cancer Medicine. (12)

Caryophyllene is especially good at treating chronic pain when consumed in combination with cannabidiol (CBD).

Given caryophyllene’s good safety profile and low risk of adverse effects, it may be an excellent therapy for hard to treat pain according to a 2013 study. (13)



Charlotte’s Web Bud Characteristics

Charlotte’s Web buds should be full and dense with few pistils and less noticeable trichome glands.

The bud is generally olive-colored with long tapering flowers.

Charlotte Web’s Sativa heritage is noticeable in its appearance.

myrcene terpene cbd hemp


Farnesene, a terpene also found in turmeric, has anti-inflammatory properties and may have anti-spasmatic effects.

Ringo’s Gift rings in around 14-18% CBD content in quality flower. 


Ringo’s Gift Terpene Profile

Ringo’s Gift has a full-bodied terpene profile high in pinene, myrcene, and caryophyllene.

Pinene is a terpene known for its pain-relieving analgesic properties. (19)


For centuries, Myrcene has been used in indigenous medical systems for pain management. (20)

According to a 2019 study, myrcene appears to activate the same pain-relieving receptors in the nervous system as opioids, but to a much lesser degree.



Caryophyllene, another terpene found in Ringo’s Gift, has neuroprotective effects that may help slow brain aging. (21)




Terpene Entourage Effect

Expect a strong entourage effect from the terpenes myrcene and caryophyllene.

The entourage effect is a complimentary reaction between cannabinoids and terpenes that extends and strengthens the beneficial effects of both compounds. (22)

Ringo’s Gift’s terpene and cannabinoid formulation lend itself to relaxation without exhausting daytime motivation.

A perfect strain for productive relaxation.

Thank you, Lawrence Ringo.



Bud Characteristics

Ringo’s Gift nugs should be light green with brown pistils (hairs).

Sweet And Sour Widow CBD Cannabis Strain

Sweet and Sour Widow has a generous dose of CBD.

This makes it a prime strain for anyone looking to ease anxiety symptoms and feel “more normal.”

This strain’s myrcene loaded terpene profile makes it a fine choice for insomnia relief, too.

Sweet And Sour Widow is your go-to strain if slowing down at the end of the night and preparing for sleep is difficult for you.

Sweet and Sour Widow comes on with a slow and evolving gentleness.

Sometimes you’re only aware of its effects after you wake up the next morning fully rested.

Interested in the science and studies behind CBD benefits for sleep?  Check out this guide to CBD’s sleep benefits.


Sweet And Sour Widow Genetic Lineage

Sweet and Sour Widow is an indica dominant hybrid strain.

Its genetics are 70/30 Indica/Sativa.

Sativas are thought to be uplifting and energizing.

Indicas are thought to be more hypnotic.

Sweet And Sour Widow bends toward the hypnotic. 

It’ll take your mind and body — deeper and further.

Deeper and further, hopefully, until it finishes by unraveling into distinct revelations of comfort.  

That’s good Widow…

Sativas and Indicas not only have different chemical compositions but they grow differently.

In terms of morphology or growing form, Indicas and Sativas are easily told apart.



Most hemp strains are hybrids with varying dominant qualities inherited from either their Indica or Sativa lineage.

Sweet and Sour Widow is a hybrid cross between the famed White Widow strain known for its resinous coating of white trichomes and a Sativa of unknown lineage.


Terpene Profile

Sweet and Sour Widow has a sugary and fruit-laced scent due to abundant quantities of the terpene myrcene.

myrcene terpene cbd hemp

Myrcene and its relationship with anxiety relief are complex.

Myrcene appears to have strong anxiety-relieving effects on some individuals while having only minor effects on others.

This may be due to the accompanying cannabinoid profile in a specific CBD strain.

In a 2018 study based on interviews with medical cannabis patients, strains with high levels of myrcene were rated by some participants to have the highest anti-anxiety effects while other participants rated the same strains as having the least anti-anxiety effects.  (24)



If you’re inclined to anxiety?

Want to avoid terpenes that have anxiety-causing effects (anxiogenic effects)? 

Then stay clear of strains with the terpene guaiol

The terpene Guaiol has been shown to have anxiety-causing effects.


Sweet And Sour Widow Bud Characteristics

Sweet and Sour Widow should be dark green with a thick coating of trichomes (crystals), a trait inherited from its White Widow lineage.

Buds should be full and dense.

Harle-Tsu CBD Cannabis Strain

If you could altogether engineer a CBD strain’s cannabinoid and terpene profile to relieve pain and inflammation, it’d be a lot like Harle-Tsu.

Hat’s off to the breeder of this delicious and helpful CBD cannabis strain.

Check out this rosin press video of fresh concentrate being squeezed from newly cured nugs.



Harle-Tsu CBD Motivation Benefits

With almost no psychoactive cannabinoids, Harle-Tsu is a day-time-at-work-and-make’in-it-happen kinda bud.

Harle-Tsu keeps your head clear and in task-oriented mode.

The endocannabinoid system or ECS (a part of your central nervous system) has modulating effects on emotional balance and task motivation. (25)



CBD affects the endocannabinoid system by mimicking an ECS signaling compound that your body already makes.

Your body naturally makes this signaling compound as part of its mechanism for keeping your cognitive, emotional, and physical functions in balance.

In fact, CBD’s ability to mimic important compounds made by your body is the key to its health and mood benefits.

CBD affects your body’s endocannabinoid system which, in turn, affects your other natural systems for self-regulation.

As part of this interaction, CBD appears to be able to adjust your emotional balance and even influence your motivation to complete tasks. (26)


Cool stuff, right?


Harle-Tsu Pain Benefits

Does pain start first thing in the morning for you?  Try some Harle-Tsu for relief.

Harle-Tsu’s cannabinoid and terpene profiles are especially helpful for muscle pains and post-workout. 

This is due to the high content of the terpene caryophyllene.

Harle-Tsu Genetics

Harle-Tsu is a cross between Harlequin and Sour Tsunami CBD cannabis strains.

This hybrid was bred in northern California by the Southern Humboldt Seed Collective.

hemp strain genetics

Its genetic heritage is indica heavy with a herbal, fruity, and piney scent.




Harle-Tsu Terpene Profile

Harle-Tsu’s terpene profile is laden on myrcene and caryophyllene.

the terpene myrcene is found in large quantities in mangoes

This terpene combination gives the strain its unique herbal and fruity aroma.



Harle-Tsu Taste

If you’re smoking flower or dabbing a live rosin concentrate, then Harle-Tsu should be on your list of must-taste chemovars.

It’s easily one of the best-tasting CBD strains around.

Harle-Tsu extracts like wax, but especially live rosin, preserve this flower’s subtle flavor notes with surprising delicacy.

 As I think you can tell, this is one of my favorite CBD cannabis strains to press into rosin.

Harle-Tsu Bud Characteristics

Harle-Tsu buds are light green with brown pistils (hairs).

Expect to see fewer trichomes on the buds than you would with some other chemovars.

harle-tsu strain review

It’s the kind of chemovar that will take care of you on back to back joints while never knocking you down a step.

As soon as you open a bag full of new buds, Harlequin will make its presence known.

Rolling a homemade joint of this conspicuously fragrant strain is well beyond satisfying.

The CBD Strains bouquet is in excess of special.

Harlequin’s aroma starts with delicate undertones of Colombian Gold which somehow build to earnest and piney peaks of Nepali Indica perfumery.

Finally cresting, Harlequin scent comes to rest on far-reaching notes of Swiss and Thai wild strains.

How is that possible?

I don’t know.

And yet, that’s Harlequin.

As you break into each new nug, Harlequin’s fragrances reinvigorate your senses again and again.
