What It’s Like to Smoke a High-CBD/Low-THC Strain
In recent years, stoners have been all about upping the THC in their marijuana. But, what’s it like to smoke a high-CBD strain? What sort of high do you experience from this very different strain? In this article, we’ll dig into what high-CBD strains are like and what sort of effects they cause.
What is a high-CBD strain?
A high-CBD strain is a type of cannabis that is bred to produce less THC and more CBD, the non-psychoactive component of marijuana. Up until recently, growers bred CBD out for more THC to up the psychoactivity in their strains. But now, CBD is enjoying its time in the spotlight.

High-CBD strains have a variety of therapeutic uses that go beyond experiencing that “high” that marijuana is known for, including the following:
- Pain management
- Blood sugar stability
- Control of seizure disorders
CBD can also be used to help balance out the high produced by a strain that’s high in THC. When CBD and THC are used together, they amplify the immune-modulating and pain-fighting properties of cannabis.
High-CBD strains include:
- Sour Tsunami
CBD vs. THC
CBD and THC affect the body differently; first, THC has a psychoactive response while CBD has more of a calming response. It all has to do with the endocannabinoid receptors that they bond with to produce that specific feeling. These compounds take the place of endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that we produce in our own bodies.

CBD works to regulate the endocannabinoids that you already have in your body. It can help keep these endocannabinoids from being broken down and increase the levels of some of them in your system. CBD helps to modulate the endocannabinoid tone.
The CBD experience
Most of the strains available on the market now are high in THC and low in CBD. This is because of our fascination with the psychoactive effects of marijuana and our want to breed that up to be stronger. High-CBD strains, on the other hand, won’t cause a mind-altering high.
The high-CBD, low-THC strains are more like a strong, herbal relaxant like chamomile or lavender. CBD quickly works to halt stress response and excitability. They don’t cause paranoia or agitation that typically comes along with THC.

CBD is most commonly used with medical marijuana users, but others may still enjoy it. A CBD-dominant strain won’t impede or distort cognition. CBD is the perfect answer to a stressful day, trouble sleeping, or anxiety issues.

The Perfect Balance of CBD & THC
Our CBD-rich formula provides a gentle micro-dose of THC, so you won’t “overshoot” your happy place.
The secret? It’s all about the ratio: we formulated our oil with 4 times as much CBD as THC.
Because CBD moderates THC’s intoxicating effects, the result is a gentler experience — even if you puff more.
Deliciously Smooth Organic Botanicals
Each puff of this vape delivers delightful aromas of peppermint, cacao, vanilla, and more. Beyond flavor or aroma, the essential oils & botanical extracts create the ultimate “entourage effect” — for soothing & arousing effects.
These oils & extracts are organic-certified ingredients wherever possible, and our CBD & THC come exclusively from sun-grown cannabis — sustainably cultivated without pesticides on pristine farms in California and Colorado.
The full-spectrum of cannabinoids are carefully extracted to yield a pristine, balanced oil, which is independently tested for purity — after both extraction & blending — ensuring freedom from solvents, pesticides, heavy metals, microbes and other toxins.
We would never put our pure formula into a disposable plastic vape pen. We selected an advanced ceramic & glass heating unit that delivers pristine vapor, free of the charred flavors & toxins often found in mass-market vapes.
The sturdy lithium battery is built to last and to provide power long after other pens quit.
