the Cannatonic myth

23 posts in this topic

NEW CBD RICH STRAINS come and get em? Why?! All the CBD you need is already present in the leaf of the cannabis plant not just indicas but all strains indica, sativa and crosses. The best way to ingest cbd is through edibles and if you want to just get the benefit of cbd its best to use just leaf matter made into a cooked butter or oil. When it comes to vaporization you dont get any significant cbd at all so using Cannatonic in the way a proper medical patient would use inhaled cannabis would be no different than if they were vaporizing Nevilles Haze! Seed companies quit B.S.ing people and start making strains that are useful.

Hope that helps

Hold your horses.... it's a lot more complicated than that.

I would say that the best way to assume high CBD is to use extract from hemp strains (industrial hemp).

The highest CBD on test (constantly over 10%) is only achievable in certain industrial hemp strains (example: Fedora, Felina, and others), certified legal and low-THC by the European Union.

Many seedbanks claim they have strains with over 10% CBD, but it's a plain lie. Or simply, the testing method used to measure the CBD is not valid.

But using industrial hemp is not a solution for every patient. A lot of patients that tried industrial hemp thinking to benefit from the high CBD discovered that CBD has the desired effect only in sinergy with other cannabinoids (which one nobody knows, there are too many of them....).
For some patients, a medicinal strain with 4% CBD can be more beneficial than a industrial hemp strain with 10% CBD.

So you see, N.W.greenthumb, it is hard to generalize.

Medicinal use depends mostly on the sinergy between cannabinoids, and this is a field that is almost unexplored by science.

It's time more companies invest some of their profits into R&D. We are doing our part, believe me.

Yeah very nice infos, i had heard of that sinergy between cannabinoids in a documentary, nice too know that the one desired is not in hemp :)

Yeah as franco said greenthumb, if it would be that easy, it would be known ^^

You said it Franco! That's the type of reasearch I'm eagerly waiting to see results of. I have many friends that don't like the popular strains of today, like the hazes, and would rather prefer traditional Moroccan hash or just some rough bush weed. I think that has something to do with our tradition lately of usually looking for high thc only instead of looking at the whole spectra of cannabinoids. Actullay that's why I'm looking forward for your new landrace seed company. I believe some cool cannabinoid profiles could step out of it.

Is there anything of value written on the synergy of cannabinoids? I'd be happy to dig deeper.

Franco, seriously. "Many seedbanks claim they have strains with over 10% CBD, but it's a plain lie. Or simply, the testing method used to measure the CBD is not valid."

I know your seedbank don't have high CBD strains, but to claim that no other have anything over 10% CBD is, to quote yourself, a plain lie. Contact ResinSeeds (Cannatonic) and they will gladly send you testresults of their strains. Or contact the clinicks in USA or Cannada, that provide it to their people and ask for their results. The new testresults from CBD-Crew is also comming in, and they have found several very high CBD ratios. (the web page is not updated with the actuall trestresults yet) CBD in hemp is not the same as a CBD rich cannabis plant and does not work the same way. You have a responsibility here to know what you say when you speak about CBD, it can be the changing factor in somebodys life :) other than that, good job spreadiing cannabis cultivating knowledge.

These are the CBD content of The CBD crew strains on the Seedsman web site.

http://www.seedsman....-seeds/cbd-crew

Not sure what the new levels will be in the report they are yet to release, but until then we will have to wait.

I live in the UK,so am unable to visit medical marijuana clinics, instead we have to rely on seed banks.

These are the percentages of the seeds available from Seedsman

Resin seeds Cannatonics 13% CBD info found at Project CBD.

http://www.projectcb...Cannatonic.html

It would be useful to know what the other high CBD strains you mention are and where we can look them up.

Is Industial hemp no good because it does not contain THC? Just wondering, it would be great to know why.

Peace

Hi!

Yess, that is just temporary results untill althe testgrower results are back, the results are coming back more and more, almost all are much higher. Wil be updates soon, so keep following. You can check up on www.cbd-crew.org as well, when they release the new results. Resinseeds has two, Cannatonic and Dieseltonic, but only 75% of the seeds contain CBD, BUT you can get great variationes of CBD countings. CBD-Crew spesialize in 1:1 ratioes and 100% of high CBD in the seeds. If you suffer serious illlnes, contact me private, and I see if I can help out :)

More seedcompanies will now also get more high CBD variates, but breedeing and stabilizing takes time, but it's on it's way!

Again, want to thank Greenhouse for all they do, don't really like spreading info about other companies here out of respect for them. But I think CBD and knowledge is very important, and I will never mentione any other companies in other treads.

Here is an instruction on how we create easy to eat CBD pills with great effect:

"Take the finished cured dry bud, crumble a bit and put in a bowl with a lid and put in the oven for 125 degrees Celsius for about 45 min. this makes the cannabis decarboxilated and the cbd works more effectively in the body.

When it's done, you grind up the cannabis completely and just put in empty capsules that you get at the pharmacy, size 1 or 0. These will take about 0.1-0.2 g ( can also just put on bread, pills just makes it easy )

Severe illness, fibrymalgia, MS, post operation pain , etc. Eat tree a day first 3 week and see if the patient feels better, if improvement, continue, if not so much, increase the dosages.

Temporary back pain and smaller issues, 1-2 pills a day, should be gone relatively fast.

the small amounts does not get most people any stoned, if it's a non smoker, start by taking one at night and your body will build a resistance soon.

Also this has worked for migraines, insomnia, Menopause and menstrual pains.

Our older "patients" eat one a night to help calm down and sleep trough the night calmer, and many have reduced their medication as well due to less pain in general."

Thanks for the quick reply :)

Sure will be good to see the new results, I have been aware of the CBD crew for a while now and that they have teamed up with Dutch Passion to create some new strains or at leat improve them.

The CBD project is also another interesting site. Link http://projectcbd.org/

Thank you for the info on making the CBD pils, I have posted a thread about Decarboxilation in the forums.

Look forward to more useful info and CBD crew updates

There is also a thread about a CBD chewing gum being released in the US . Link

Peace

Hi!

Yess, you are correct, they are expanding to help more companies mix their favorite strains with high CBD.

The CBD project has supported Resin & CBD-crew all the way, great groupe of people who spread a lot of knowledge and do research.

Good to hear you are already well informed!

Best of luck!

well also to be honnest Lady Liz as you work in the cannabis industry you know how fast thing goes, the message is 1 year old, so you know even the CBD crew one year ago if i remember more or less worectly we were starting to hear about them no? and i agree with franco on the fact that maybe seedbank must just be surfing on the wave, and following the tendancies announcing some high rate of CBD everywhere. Doesn't mean they all do of course ;)

But i do agree with you too, we see a lot lately people talking more and more about CBD, like with the CBDproject guys like lams said, now unfortunatly beeing in a country when there is absolutely nothing such as medical cannabis or studies, so most infos we get we have to select on net and you know how the net is you know what you read but never what you get, anything could be true or false :) So if you got any reliable info please make sure to share them with us on the fourm during your stay, we alway like to read and learn ;)

Hehe, did not even see the date, yess a LOT of new info has come trough the last year. Myself just learned ablout it for the last two years. Mayn seedcompanies still don't know about the CBD benefits, but if you are "just" gonna smoke yo don't nessesarly need CBD. Althoug I try to only smoke cbd strains, just LOVE it. ANd I smoked every day for 13 years, so nice with a change, hehe. Great for work! Calm and comfortable ;) Also there is a company called CBC Seeds, that does not have any CBD in their seeds as far as I know. I have sendt a mail asking for testresults, but never got any answers back. Very dangerous for people needing high CBD strains, so I hope they get some proof of their cbd claims soon.

I hear you, Resin does not want to stabilize the Cannatonic and Dieseltonic due to the fact that you an actually get a very high CBD and a very low THC, since some prefeere that for treating different illneses and f.eks. kids. Autism etc.

The testresults on CBD-Crew's homepage are low so that they did not have to put them down whan all the testresults come back, but I have seen many of the testgrow results and I can assure you that most of them come out way higher. Altou the mother of Cannatonic is "only" 6,2/6,9, but havs sucessfully cured cansers without making oils, just but heating & eating. I know bacause I am talking about a friend of mine with two braitoumors that the doctors had given up treating and sent her home to die. She ate Cannatonic for tre weeks and they went away.. under 20g !! Still living strong :)

I can't wait to get more happy endings like this now that more people can grow their own CBD, finally not dependeing on Bedocan or Sativx:)

That is probably why I got very emotional when seeing Francos comment, this can save life and need to be promoted not tossed aside. I know now that this tread is old, and I am sure Franco has a lot more inforamtion now, as I said, I have nothing against Franco, but I reacted on him not recomending growing Cannatonic if you are looking for CBD.

If you keep track on the CBD-crew page you will sonn see ajusted results for the strains :)

I also agree on the industrial hemp comment, it does not work as well as cannabis at all. I have tried creams with hemp CBD on psoriasis and it did not work at all like the instant relief of a highe THC/CBD Cannatonic cream.

I hope you manage to create something alike it, the world needs a lot!

I found this topic googling, thought it was interesting. I am currently growing Cannatonic #4 and my highest ranking is 14% CBD. But I have a screenshot of a 12% test. Now I read that someone said that over 10 is impossible and that it would have to be an error in testing. I have no idea but this cannatonic 4 is weird. 0% THC and when you make butane oil out of it. Its like no other kind of oil. Not blonde but translucent brown .

Many thanks Franco for confirming my own thoughts about industrial hemp.

 

I know this thread is nearly 2 years old, but what really interests me about it is the fact that THC is still being added into to the equation - as if it is some sort of 'magic ingredient' that has to be included into 'medicine' to make it viable.

 

I have read many research papers that talk about CBD being beneficial that don't even mention THC's synergistic relationship with CBD. Charlotte Figi was 5 years old when she was given/cured by CBD rich oil that contained only 'trace' amounts of THC. So, is THC really that necessary, as it just complicates matters 'legally'.

 

SATIVEX is a prime example of the possession/legality aspect of Cannabinoid medicines. Being comprised of a 50/50 mix of CBD and THC it immediately comes under the controls of the authorities because of its THC content - CBD is legal to possess, yes, even here in the UK!

 

[see attached file - third on list] Picture source:   nature.com/nrn/journal/v14/n8/fig_tab/nrn3530_T1.html

 

At the end of your post you mention that you are looking into this subject. Can you do everyone a favour and consider trying to produce a plant, or product, with 0% THC?

 

Or is this asking too much, even of you guys? :superblue:

 

Achieving this would make high CBD+Cannabinoid medicines available to, pretty much, everyone worldwide. As I said before, I don't think THC is the 'magic ingredient' and personally wouldn't give a damn if the medicine that cured me contained no THC at all - if it worked.

Yes many people think like you that the THC and is not that much necessary for the CBD to be efficient, and a lot of people of course also think the other way. I think it depends the disease you are trying to heal and at what level the Cannabinoids are acting, i mean when it comes to depression, emotional troubles, chronic pain etc.. in those cases i think the full range of cannabinoids is necessary to be efficient, as long as we don't know exactly what acts on what. On the other side, all the people using to fight cancers etc, as t is acting on cellular level also i believe, in those cases maybe some selected cannabinoids could be used specificaly for 1 type of disease and without traces of THC in it.

 

But well i'm no scientist and all those are only my 2 coins guessing from my understanding of the thing (which is pretty low compare to some of you on the CBD side) All i wish is that soon enough with all those investments in US and in the world in the medicine, we will get some clear results and analysis on all this!

 

Have a good day :)

I am weaning off valium which was given to me by my doc because it is the protocol when getting off of ativan...which I was taking for about 6-7 yrs because of anxiety due to serious medical issues. I became aware of CBD oil and started taking these gel caps about 4 months ago along with the drug withdrawals. It was supposedly a NON Cannatonic that I was initially getting with high CBD and low THC because I do not like the stoned feeling. I just want something to help me with the w/d symptoms of  painful muscle spasms, anxiety, heart pounding, etc that occur because of the valium. I am taking 8.5 mgs of valium now and it is cut by 1.2 mg a week. My issue is that the guy I have been getting the gel caps from just a few days ago gave me cannatonic and said 'it's the same thing as what you've been taking'. Nope. The cannatonic has lecitchin in it. The CBD/THC caps had olive oil. For some reason...and maybe this is not so uncommon....I feel nauseated, clammy. sweaty, heart pounding and generally crummy after taking this cannatonic. How can it be the same stuff? He says it is a 1:1 ratio. Whatever. The CBD/THC caps NEVER made me feel ill, just relaxed. Withdrawing from valium can cause muscle spasms and cramps, and I have fibromyalgia as well so don't need this extra stuff that makes me feel like I have the flu. It is giving me diarrhea as well.  I took the cannatonic this morning and it is now evening and is finally wearing off...I feel ok now, no nausea, no sweating,  no hypotension, not feeling tired.  I took one of my regular CBD/THC caps a little while ago that I am running low on and felt better almost immediately. I would not have bought this last cannatonic but the guy said 'its the same stuff as the caps you've been taking'. He's getting it back this week. When he first started selling this stuff he gave me a bottle of stuff labeled cannatonic and said 'try it' but I didn't and stuck to my regular capsules I was getting from him.  I took the cannatonic to a herbalist/pharmacist person who said it could make me nauseated so take just a little. I took 1/4 teaspoon and am now totally turned off of this cannatonic stuff.  I hope someone gets back to me on this. If I had the flu, I wouldn't feel good up untill I take some cannatonic! Flu does not come and go. This has been getting worse as the cannatonic built up in my system...the first day was ok and that was Wednesday.  Is there some way I can be sure I am getting high CBD and low THC quality capsules? I cannot make my own oil, and it is not legal where I live. But there is NO way I could have gotten this far  getting off valium without the wonderful low THC and high CBD capsules (not cannatonic!) that I've been taking for at least 4 months now.  Any help, advice is very appreciated. My husband smokes and has for years but I cannot smoke it- makes me cough too much. Vaporizers not as good as the caps. Thanks and glad I found this forum. Some of the messages are old so I hope this site is still up and working.  I think it is ridiculous to have to do cloak and dagger stuff to get medicine that works to help get me off big pharma drugs.  THEY are the criminals.

If you look for very very low thc oils you should look more on the side of hemp oils then, they are never as efficient as the cannabis oil, but worth trying and see if it really is the THC that makes you feel like this, even tho the cannatonic has a 1:1 ratio, it is pretty low in THC usually around 6 7% i believe, and if you take a non decarboxylated oil then the THC should not get you high as it is not activated.

 

Have a good day and good luck to you!

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
