Today, one can find a myriad of cannabis genetics with high CBD content on the seed market, with diverse cannabinoid ratios and thus medicinal effects. From 1:1 THC:CBD varieties to those with awesome 1:20 (even higher) ratios, breeders and seed producers have relentlessly bred new CBD strains over the past years. But where do all these new varieties come from?

This male was crossed with Reina Madre (to create Juanita) but also with Blue Heaven, thus creating a second strain with amazing traits, Kalijah, which is also available in their catalog and was used to develop one of their feminised varieties, O’Haze Red.
In short, CBD strains were born in Girona, Catalonia, and from there they travelled across the globe to the joy of many medical cannabis patients.

According to an article published by Soft Secrets, and as our friend Jimi from Reggae Seeds confirms, it all started with the creation of Juanita la Lagrimosa (Reina Madre x NYCD), the flagship strain of this seed company.
The truth is that those seeds were sold to Jaime from Resin Seeds as MK Ultra x G13 Haze. 100 of these seeds were planted, and the best individuals produced the Cannatonic and Cannatonic II hybrids. On the other hand, a friend of Jaime popped 50 seeds of the same batch and selected Dulce Canna and Dieseltonic.
As a result of this success, Jaime decided to perform lab tests of Cannatonic, Dulce Canna and Dieseltonic. He soon discovered that all three strains had high CBD content, something completely unexpected. Soon after, Resin Seeds started the first marketing campaign ever of CBD-rich varieties.
The basis of modern breeding for CBD-rich genetics had just started. On the one hand, Jimi stabilized the Kalijah strain, while a friend of his did the same with Juanita. They both found amazing plants during the selection process, which would become the respective elite clones of each strain.

The origins of modern CBD-rich varieties date back from 2004, when Reggae Seeds created Juanita la Lagrimosa. This Reina Madre x NYCD hybrid represent

Juanita strain

Stress Killer consists of 60% sativa genetics, 30% indica genetics, and 10% ruderalis genetics. The strain is derived from crossbreeding Juanita la Lagrimosa, Lemon Shining Silver Haze, and Cannabis ruderalis. Stress Killer was intentionally bred to offer a clear and functional high – one that helps it achieve its namesake. The strain contains a THC content of 11% and high levels of CBD. This cannabinoid profile allows for a slightly more intense high, without rendering the smoker incapable of carrying out everyday tasks. Again, this Juanita la Lagrimosa descendant offers medical users an excellent option, with only a slight psychoactive kick. The high induced by Stress Killer is known to help enhance mental focus – so smokers will have no problem working or engaging in creative activities.

Juanita la Lagrimosa is the result of crossbreeding various Thai and Mexican landraces, with the strain’s original ancestors being a mix of a Mexican/Afghan male and a Reina Madre mother plant. The strain is sativa-dominant, resulting in a head high that offers smokers a clean and energising buzz. This enjoyable and functional high is augmented by the sensual characteristics of the plant. The flowers of Juanita la Lagrimosa offer a potent, fruity taste along with aromas of lemon Haze. The strain can be grown in many environments, with indoor plants boasting a short flowering window of 60-65 days.

Royal Medic grows vigorously both indoors and out, and actually deals well with a cold climate. Indoor plants cultivated within grow rooms will achieve heights up to 120cm and produce yields up to 475g/m². Outdoor plants grown within garden beds or pots will grow up to 150cm in height and will offer impressive harvests of up to 525g/plant. The flowering time of Royal Medic is 9 weeks and the harvest period for outdoor plants is early October.
Painkiller XL is a sativa-dominant strain that is comprised of 75% sativa genetics and 25% indica genetics. This strain comes from parents Royal Highness and Juanita la Lagrimosa. Painkiller is an excellent medical strain that is very high in CBD and only features a THC content of 9%. This strain offers medical users the amazing health benefits of CBD, with little exposure to psychoactive THC. This allows one to experience the anti-inflammatory, anti-seizure, and other healing properties of CBD without becoming too stoned in the process. The slight high associated with smoking this strain is quite physical and very clear.
Painkiller XL likes a mild climate and can be grown indoors and outdoors, producing large yields regardless. Indoor plants will produce impressive harvests of up to 550g/m² and grow up to 100cm in height. Outdoor plants will reach the heights of 150cm and output massive yields of up to 550g/plant. The flowering time of Painkiller XL is only 8 weeks and harvest time for outdoor plants occurs during late September.
Fast Eddy consists of 50% sativa genetics, 40% indica genetics, and 10% ruderalis genetics. Crossbreeding Juanita la Lagrimosa, Cheese, and Cannabis ruderalis results in this impressive strain. Fast Eddy is a great example of the continuation of Juanita la Lagrimosa, and possesses some of the features that makes its parent strain so special. Fast Eddy contains only 9% THC alongside high levels of CBD.
Royal Highness is a sativa-dominant strain that features 60% sativa genetics and 40% indica genetics. The strain results from crossbreeding Respect 13 and Dancehall 24. Royal Highness tolerates both indoor and outdoor growth well. Indoor plants will reach heights between 60-100cm and will offer yields of up to an impressive 600g/m². Alternatively, outdoor plants will reach slightly taller heights of between 80-110cm and can produce yields of up to 475g/plant. The flowering time of Royal Highness is 9 weeks, and outdoor plants will be ready for harvest during early October. The strain takes well to a warm climate.

Dance World is a sativa-dominant strain that consists of 75% sativa genetics and 25% indica genetics. The strain is the lovechild of parents Dancehall 20 and Juanita la Lagrimosa. This crossbreeding project has resulted in a strain that offers a THC content of 12%, augmented by a high CBD content. Smoking the flowers of Dance World induces a motivating and inspiring high that is very much on the sativa side of the spectrum. On the recreational side of things, this high helps smokers get into the zone and achieve their daily goals. From a medical perspective, the high CBD content, along with a light psychoactive high, is perfect for dosing CBD throughout the day without becoming nonfunctional or exhausted.
