Want to start trying CBD, but aren’t sure what strains to try out? Never fear: here are the best available CBD strains.

Sweet and Sour Widow

This strain has an equal ratio of CBD and THC, which many believe make it a great entry point for new consumers. It’s also good for people who want the medical benefits of CBD without the more…. recreational effects of THC.

Stephen Hawking Kush

Another of the more balanced strains, Stephen Hawking Kush also smells distinctively of grapes. However, despite that it’s named for the late great scientist Stephen Hawking, it won’t actually make you smarter or better at technical work.


One of the most well known strains, Harlequin is thought to be especially good for pain and anxiety, because its THC and CBD balance means that the THC doesn’t mask the helpful qualities in the CBD.

Yin & Yang

Available in the Ontario Cannabis Store, this strain is actually derived from the aforementioned Harlequin strain. It’s thought to be good for people with trouble sleeping. It also contains a balance of CBD and THC, to help you balance out your life.

Charlotte’s Web

This strain has such a low ratio of CBD to THC (20 to 1) it can actually be sold as a food supplement. It’s particularly known for helping the seizures of a twelve year old American girl, which helped loosen medical marijuana laws in the United States.


This strain is thought to be good for use during the day, as many believe that it helps them focus on their work or other daily life things. It’s also thought to be good for consumers with chronic pain, as it helps with anxiety, nausea, inflammation, and arthritis, among other ailments.

Suzy Q

Suzy Q is a strain that has little to no reported high, making it perfect for people just in it for the CBD. It has an earthier, pine-like taste, and is thought to be helpful for muscle cramps and pain.

North Star CBD

North Star CBD has only a small amount of THC, and is far more dominant in CBD than most strains. It is very helpful for post-workout aches, and other pains. It’s also thought to be very good for reducing anxiety.

No. 301 Napali CBD

Also available at the Ontario Cannabis Store, this strain is thought to be more uplifting and helpful for improving people’s moods.
