Tror nog AF plantor skulle falla dig i smaken då det i alla fall verkar som dom innehåller mer CBD än dom klassiska sorterna.
Dessa klassiska sorter har fått den cbd producerande genen bort breedad i jakten på starkt rus och hög THC halt.
Denna post ger en bättre bild av vad jag försöker få fram.

Research has finally confirmed what Sam Skunkman claimed for years based on personal experience. The British Journal of Pharmacology just came out with 2 studies, one about THCV and one about CBD .
Ends up that THCV is a THC antagonist, which means it fills/blocks the CB receptor sites, but has no particular endocannabinoid systemic impact aside from preventing the effects of THC (or any other cannabinoid). CBD is actually an inverse agonist, which means it also fills receptor sites, thereby blocking THC from entering, but then CBD actually has a systemic effect as well that is the opposite of THC and other agonists. From Wiki:
“In pharmacology, an inverse agonist is an agent which binds to the same receptor binding-site as an agonist for that receptor but exerts the opposite pharmacological effect.”
We can infer from this that both THCV and CBD are best left out of the mix if you want the maximal high and other positive effects of pot. Of course, CBD is a powerful anti-cancer agent too, so there are medical arguments for keeping it in the mix. But for a good high, it would seem that high THC and low CBD/THCV is the way to go–THCV and CBD will just attenuate the impact of THC (hence, Sam’s feeling that CBD/THC strains are for “girlymen” who can’t handle the full THC high.)
It’s so great to see real research finally coming out!
