ACDC is a high-CBD strain. In fact, CBD levels can reach up to 24% when well-grown. This fact makes this nonpsychoactive hybrid a great choice for patients with severe conditions like epilepsy and multiple sclerosis.

ACDC is a high-CBD hybrid. This strain is famous for its 20:1 ratio of CBD to THC, making this plant more or less hemp. This ratio, however, gives this plant some potent medical properties. On average, the CBD content in this strain ranges between 16 and 24%. The THC content, however, reaches 6% max. These cannabinoid levels make this strain completely nonpsychoactive.

This flower is a popular choice among those who juice cannabis rather than smoke or cook with the herb. In fact, cannabis physician and activist Dr. William Courtney coined the term "Alternative Cannabinoid Dietary Cannabis" in reference to this plant. ACDC has medical benefits both when heated and used raw.

The medicinal uses of this plant are vast. The high CBD content is especially useful for epilepsy and seizure disorders. Yet, those with Parkinson's tremors, cancer, and multiple sclerosis also tend to enjoy this strain.

CBD is a powerful anxiolytic, making this a great choice for those with anxiety disorders. The cannabinoid is also known for its antipsychotic and antidepressant properties, giving the strain therapeutic potential for the treatment of severe psychiatric conditions.

ACDC's overall experience is nice and light. As a nonpsychoactive strain, ACDC promotes a calm, happy relaxation without distorting cognitive function. It's uplifting and focused, which makes this strain popular among those who need to get things done. Slightly sativa-dominant, use ACDC during the day.

Growing Tips

This plant requires a little investment. Expect to spend time maintaining and propping up ACDC for extra support. You may need to supplement with moderate amounts of nutrients, especially calcium and magnesium. To get this strain to perform, you'll also want to shake the plants or use a fan to stress them slightly. Just don't over do it! ACDC is a bit picky. This plant tends to be light sensitive. You'll also want to keep an eye out for pests.
