I hurt my arm really badly something about a week ago and it has been abnormally swollen. It was causing severe pain when I tried to move my wrist. After that I somehow managed to injure it again, even worse. It looks terrible now and feels even worse, it also creeks when I move my hand up and down and that's definitely not ok. I've done nearly 70 reviews on high THC strains till now and this is my first ever comment on high CBD strain. Thanks to the lady at the Giving Tree Wellness Center who recommended me ACDC marijuana and how glad I am that I took her advice! Now I know about magical weed that takes all the pain away, reduces swelling and muscle soreness and most importantly don't get you high. It's a pure medicine! I can still feel this creeking but at least I'm able to write this review. So now I think it's even a good thing that I injured my arm cause now I can't wait to try other CBD rich strains as they can be so useful in everyday life.

What would you think if someone told you there was weed that would not get you high? I would be puzzled too! Actually I was when I heard this from the man at the cannabis store. After that I'm not sure what to believe any more, cause if there was something I was certain of, it definitely was that weed gets you high. But here I am, writing this review and surprised by the effects this strain gives. It has a 1% THC and 18% CBD profile, so after 5 hits I'm still not very high, although I feel different. And this is the strain with one of the highest CBD/THC ratios ever known! Despite its sativa dominance this weed is still not for getting high. I have a clear mind, I'm in a good mood and don't feel any anxiety as usual. There is no any paranoia too, but instead I feel giggly and even happy. And what's quite important to me is that I don't feel altered. You don't have to worry that you can get uncomfortably high cause this strain is rather soft.

I used to smoke weed from dawn till dusk when I was a teen. At the age of 16 I lost my whole family and weed became my salvation and only consolation. But then I developed heavy dissociative anxiety and serious case of panic disorder and weed made it even worse. Last time I smoked I've got a severe panic attack from one hit and spent the rest of the day thinking that I'll end up dying from a heart attack. I gave up on smoking after that and it's been five years since then. But I have used some CBD oil and patches which have significantly alleviated my suffering. So I decided to start smoking again. When I was at the point of deciding which strain to buy I chose ACDC and Charlottes Web and then read every review twice to make sure it won't do me any harm. So I made a puff carefully and then was slowly smoking two bowls throughout the day because I have no tolerance level and yet I'm calm, friendly and in a good mood. And when I felt high for a minute or so I didn't feel any panic or paranoia. ACDC is HIGHLY recommended for newbies or those who suffer from anxiety. It's very mild and has mostly calming effects, so you could stay with a clear head.
