Light cannabis is a type of sativa hemp rich in cannabidiol(CBD) and with low levels of tetrahydrocannabinol(THC). It has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its therapeutic properties and possible medical applications.
But credit is also due to new laws that now allow the sale of hemp-derived products if the THC content is less than 0.6 percent.
The origins of light cannabis
Light cannabis is born from the selection of different species of sativa hemp: crosses are aimed at reducing the THC content and increasing the CBD content. This process has led to the emergence of numerous light cannabis inflorescences, each with unique characteristics in flavor, aroma, and effects on the body and mind.
The most famous and popular inflorescences of light cannabis
- Amnesia Of Dutch origin, Amnesia genetics is highly prized because of its effect that causes just such "amnesias" once you try it. Its Sativa-dominant version has become the one most used by growers precisely because of the sweetness it can release.
- ACDC is a very popular light cannabis because of its high CBD content, with a CBD:THC ratio of about 20:1. This ratio allows for the therapeutic benefits of CBD without the psychoactive effects of THC. ACDC is known for its pungent citrus and pine aroma and its relaxing and analgesic effects.
- Icerock is a sativa hemp bud with high CBD concentration because it is covered with CBD crystals scattered all over the surface. This product is now world-renowned because of its main characteristic, namely its high CBD value, which can be close to 90 percent.
- Cannatonic, another very famous phenotype in the CBD world, sweet, light green and strawberry-like, has the distinction of being one of the most sought-after strains by the vast European clientele. A product that never goes out of fashion, with a taste that never tires and a fragrant and fruity terpene.
A market in continuous development
Light cannabis offers numerous therapeutic benefits without the psychoactive effects typical of traditional cannabis. Each inflorescence we have described has unique characteristics in terms of flavor, aroma, and effects. However, the market for light cannabis is constantly growing and offers a wide variety of products besides inflorescences such as oils, edible capsules, incense, and supplements. This has led to increased competition among producers who continue to develop new varieties and improve the quality of the products offered.
It is important to remember that cannabis legislation varies from place to place, so it is good to inform yourself before purchasing and using these products. The advice of a health professional is recommended before starting to use light cannabis for medicinal purposes because there may be interactions with other medications or pre-existing medical conditions.
Cannabis light: technical and scientific development
Although light cannabis has many health benefits for men and women, not all effects have yet been discovered or fully understood. Research on cannabis and its compounds is still ongoing, and new studies may provide more information on the properties of light cannabis and its potential medical applications.
Meanwhile, the market continues to expand and offer new options for consumers. Thanks to research and development, new varieties of cannabis and new derived products are expected as early as in the near future. This technical and scientific development provides an opportunity to further explore the benefits of light hemp and ensure an even safer and more effective alternative for millions of people around the world.
