* Please remember, both growing Cannabis and CBD Flower is illegal in the UK *
Recent years have seen the most significant shifts in cannabis usage since bans the 1920s. An impressive 11 states in America alone have legalised cannabis on the back of health, tax, and regulatory benefits, with more looking set to follow. Even in locations where cannabis is still a no-go, it’s hallucinogen-free counterpart CBD is making significant shifts in the American healthcare system.
But, we know what you’re thinking. What does this mean for UK usage? As the largest producer and exporter of medical marijuana over the last twenty years, you’d assume laws here were also undergoing significant changes. Yet, the UK remains one of the most anti-cannabis nations going. While some limited medical marijuana cases were legalised in 2018, cannabis and its growth, distribution, or possession remain class B issues, with prison terms of up to 14 years.
Despite this, CBD is now legal on the UK market due to THC levels that are lower than 0.2%. This alone is opening up a wealth of ever-evolving health benefits, including suspected links with pain relief, athletic performance, decreased risks of certain cancers, and even improved brain functioning to avoid Alzheimer’s.
But, UK law continues to make the growth and purchase of even CBD seeds confusing, so where exactly are we getting our seeds right now, and which are the best options on the market?
Plenty of European countries are experiencing lax cannabis laws right now, with many becoming forerunners in the race for CBD and cannabis distribution. That makes them critical contenders for UK CBD seeds.
The Netherlands is perhaps the most notable option here as the world’s second-largest cannabis exporter. Already, they’re responsible for the first and largest medical marijuana export into the UK, and suppliers here also provide top-quality CBD cannabis seeds. Bulgaria also deserves mention here. As home to Europe’s largest CBD producer, Dragonfly Biosciences, this destination also provides almost unfounded seed-buying opportunities.
What Are The Different Types Of Cannabis Seeds Available?
Obviously, there’s all manner of CBD cannabis seeds on the market, but specific strain differences aside (we’ll get to those later), CBD seeds are a wide and varied bunch. To stay on the right side of the law and make sure they’re buying what they need, UK-based CBD suppliers start their buying journey by considering seed differences and priorities such as –
By guaranteeing female plants, feminised seeds eliminate uncertainty, streamline growing processes, and guarantee crop cultivation. This ensures that even small growing efforts reap substantial rewards.
Autoflowering seeds develop plants that automatically flower with age, without the light and heat sources that other plants rely on. This makes growth easier to manage, as well as ensuring results in as little as ten weeks, and ensuring growth works on small scales.
High CBD seeds
Cannabis seeds high in CBD are a central area of focus for UK growers, producing as they do plants with THC as low as 0.3% compared with as much as 20% CBD content. Seeds like these remain well within UK laws surrounding the growth of industrial cannabis dependent on THC levels that can’t be any higher than that 0.3% figure. This, mixed with the other priorities mentioned, makes for even UK-friendly seed purchase and growth at all times.
The Top 5 Cannabis Seeds High In CBD Available As Chosen By The CBD Supplier
Here at The CBD Supplier, we make it our business to know the best options for our UK market. We produce quality CBD products across the board, and we do so by always knowing the best seeds available. With the above fundamentals in mind, our favourites at the moment include –
#1 – Medical Mass CBD seeds
Medical Mass CBD seeds are relatively new to the market and are primarily available in an Indica strain. Perhaps the most notable benefit of these feminised, autoflowering seeds is an equal production of CBD and THC, which dramatically boosts the medical benefits available in this strain.
Growth of this seed is easy and manageable for even indoor growers thanks to yield heights of no more than 60–100cm and flowering periods of just 7-8 weeks for fast results that are hard to beat.
#2 – Euphoria
The anxiety-beating social focus of the Euphoria strain makes it a leading medical contender. This, paired with high CBD-cultivating genetics from both Indica and Sativa strains makes for one of the most famous CBD-rich varieties of all. Even better, a high-energy experience means that Euphoria plants are ideal for medical use with even daytime needs.
Again, growth of these plants is relatively easy, with 8-week high-yield flowering periods and heights of 100–140cm.
#3 – Amnesia Autoflowering CBD
Amnesia Autoflowering CBD might not sound like the most reassuring medical option, but this autoflowering, feminised and CBD-rich seed is most definitely worth market attention right now. A Sativa-dominant hybrid of Amnesia CBD and Early Amnesia CBD, this offering provides the best of both worlds for all medical users. Lower THC content than other strains mentioned means that this is undoubtedly the seed to consider for keeping a smile on your face all day and even finding outside inspiration.
As you can guess from the name, this seed is also cultivated with easy growth in mind. Its hybrid makeup means that Amnesia Autoflowering CBD seeds include dense branching structures that make for vegetative development of as much as 100g per plant. Growth, too, is incredibly adaptable from these seeds, with outdoor plants growing to as high as 1.70m, while indoor options will rarely exceed the 1m mark.
#4 – White Widow Autoflowering CBD
Derived from a White Widow XXL Autoflowering and an Auto CBD, this autoflowering top Widow selection offers bearable effects that make it ideal for medical use. With a balanced mixture of Indica, Sativa, and Ruderalis strains, this plant contains THC levels of just 5%, alongside CBD levels that easily double that.
It is worth noting, though, that growth with this option is slightly more complicated than the other seeds mentioned. This plant’s habit to ‘stretch’ means that space is of the essence. Still, an autoflowering tendency means that crops are still relatively easy to come by here, with dense and thick buds typically growing as standard.
#5 – Stress Killer Automatic CBD
Last but not least, we have the aptly named Stress Killer. This autoflowering strain combines genetics from Lemon Haze, Juanita la Lagrimosa, and Ruderalis, and is specifically targeted towards providing users with a functional and focused headspace. In fact, these seeds yield some of the most focus-producing CBD benefits on the market right now. This is fantastic for easing worries and, as you guessed it, keeping stress at bay.
Harvest times here are probably the longest on this list but still come in at a pretty manageable 11 weeks. Other than that, growth of just 90-140 cm indoors or 110-160cm outside make this another easy option for indoor or outside growers looking for high-yielding cannabis seeds high in CBD.
