Cannatonic is a perfect name to describe this pain-reducing strain. It’s lineage consists of MK Ultra and G-13, and usually contains a 5:1 ratio of CBD to THC. Cannatonic does have a small amount of THC – about 5%. This strain is perfect for those that wish to still have a slightly psychoactive effect on top of the therapeutic relief.
Harle-Tsu was one of the original high-CBD strains available. It became famous among medicinal patients that required a significant dose of cannabidiol to fight against various ailments. It presents an eye-popping 20:1 CBD to THC ratio, which remains one of the highest amounts to this day.
Harle-Tsu was bred by crossing Harlequin and Sour Tsunami, which are both CBD abundant cannabis strains.
Harlequin is another mainstay in the CBD industry. This battle-tested strain has a 5:2 CBD to THC ratio. Many producers grow it for its consistent expression of CBD-dominant traits, and consumers enjoy it for its relieving capabilities.

With such an exciting name, it only makes sense that Valentine X ranks as one of the most potent CBD strains available. It exhibits a 25:1 CBD to THC ratio, forcefully blowing past that of Harle-Tsu.
