Up until a few years ago when I really got into the cannabis culture, I didn't know there was much more to Cannabis than THC. If it's sticky and sugary it must get you stoned. It must have a high THC% right? Wrong. There's many active compounds in Cannabis. THC and CBD are just two.  AC/DC is a strain that is prized for its 20:1 CBD to THC ratio, giving many of the therapeutic benefits to the user without the "high" along with it.

AC/DC is a CBD rich strain bred for medicinal use. Prized for CBD "Cannabidiol" to THC "Tetrahydracannabinol" ratios as high as 20:1, users have praised it for giving many of the medical benefits of cannabis without the high that a THC rich plant will give. Ac/Dc's parent genetics include Cannatonic, an equal part THC to CBD plant. Some will argue that Ac/Dc and another strain, Oracle, are actually one and the same. Taken from Project CBD
It appears that some of these CBD-dominant strains have different names but are actually the same plant. The LA-based Werc Shop analyzed the terpene content of two CBD-dominant strains, “Oracle” and “ACDC,” and found that they were identical.

“A terpene analysis is like a fingerprint,” explains Werc Shop’s president Jeff Raber. “It can tell you if it’s the same strain with different names. We can see strains going by different names that have the same terpene profile. We now know the strains are identical.”

When I first encountered Ac/Dc I was pleasantly surprised by the presentation. Dense, earthy, and very oily buds. It smelled reminiscent of pine sap. It was a light, pleasant high, almost more of a relaxing buzz. Highly recommended for extractions. CBD's are very valuable for a variety of health benefits. Highly recommended for pain relief due to the ability to bind to CB1 receptors in the body, easing pain, and it's anti inflammatory properties. 
   High CBD extracts have proven anecdotally successful in slowing cancerous tumor growth. Also known to help increase the appetite, mitigate nausea and vomiting. Shown successful to help with anxiety as well. 


    CBD law in the united states varies from state to state. 25 states have legalized the growing of industrial hemp. CBD products are legal across the united states, as long as they're made with the stalk of a mature hemp plant. We can also import hemp products made this way. This is why you can buy hemp lotion, or a hemp T-shirt. Hemp oil is just the same. Although legal, we are confined to using an inferior product to produce hemp and cbd oil. Here is an in depth article explaining the in's and outs of the laws on CBD and hemp oil. 
Ac/Dc is a strain with numerous medical benefits. Whether you're using this to make Rick Simpson Oil, juicing the leaves, making edibles, or just enjoying the flower. Anybody is bound to find a use for this strain. 
*- It's a low THC strain.
Taste: 7/10
High:5/10*

I never heard about CB1 which is receptors in the body, easing pain, and its anti inflammatory properties. Whereas the High CBD extracts have proven successful in slowing cancerous tumor growth. Thanks for sharing such a nice and comprehensive detail about these magical herbs.

If this is to be used for medical reasons, then I support the decision of the government to legalize this. I know that it may not be supported by some people, but I think that it should be used if it's for a medical-related purpose. It's meant to cure a sickness so it should be used to be able to help the people suffering from this sickness. They should not be denied of any medicine that will help them heal because as doctors, it is their number one duty to make sure that their patients are going to get better. As long as this will not be used for personal reasons, I see no harm as to why patients cannot use this.

I've read about cannabis in some articles that I found. It can heal some kinds of diseases and one can improve lung health. Some people just use cannabis in a bad way. It can be legalized in countries but officials should educate people about using marijuana. Some of its effects are very helpful for the health.

THC present in the hemp plant plays a vital role in treatment. CBD Oil is extracted from such plants are used as health supplement. CDB Oil can be extracted in three ways. CO2 extraction, ethanol extraction and the oil method.
