ACDC Strain — Powerful Pain Relief With Little Intoxication

While there’s certainly nothing wrong with choosing a strain for the purpose of having a fun time, ACDC is built a little differently. Despite being named after a raucous rock band, this CBD-rich strain produces little to no intoxicating effects. Instead, it is designed to help relieve pain, inflammation, and similar issues without getting you too dizzy or sleepy. This makes it an ideal strain for everyday medicinal use when high THC varieties might interfere with your responsibilities.

      ACDC Strain Information

      It’s easy to find marijuana strains today with over 20% THC. In contrast, ACDC features under 5% THC. This strain is rich in CBD instead, with an average measurement of 10% or higher CBD by weight. ACDC is mostly a medicinal strain, not unlike Harlequin. Many tinctures, CBD creams, and edibles rely on this strain to add just a little THC to smooth out the effects.

      Where The ACDC Strain Is Grown
