Understanding Marijuana Seeds
Over the last decade many states in the USA have relaxed their laws on possessing and growing marijuana for personal use. While a number of states now allow the use of marijuana for both medical and recreational purposes, meaning any resident may grow or possess a limited number of plants, or amount of marijuana. Other states only allow their people to grow, or use it for medicinal purposes.
So what’s the difference between recreational and medical marijuana, and which seeds and strains should you be growing to help combat various conditions and illnesses?
As marijuana flowers and matures it produces resin over the flowers and small ‘sweet-leaves’. Within the resin are a wide number of cannabinoids, the main, and most well-known are THC and CBD. While THC is the compound that produces the ‘high’ or ‘stoned’ feeling, tests have concluded that CBD may have many medical applications, ranging from reducing chronic pain to combating PTSD.
Marijuana strains that are low in THC, but high in CBD are often referred to as medical marijuana seeds and are of more interest to growers looking to generate there own medicinal marijuana, rather than grow plants for recreational use and getting’high’.
