Which Cannabis Strains Have the Highest CBD Percentages?

High CBD strains are ideal for those with epilepsy and seizure disorders as well as those with inflammatory diseases and frequent nausea. Some strains are grown specifically for their high CBD properties. Below you’ll find the strains known to have the highest CBD percentages. Please feel free to ask Leafist any questions that you might have regarding CBDs.

Charlotte’s Web

Charlotte’s Web is a popular strain for seizure reduction/cessation. Thousands of people have found relief from multiple seizures daily, with some experiencing a complete stoppage of their seizures. Charlotte’s Web consistently tests at 20-percent CBD or higher. It is commonly available in most medical cannabis markets.


Harle-Tsu is known for its 20:1 CBD to THC ratio. It consistently tests between 20 and 24-percent CBD. It is one of the highest CBD strains produced and is ideal for chronic pain, inflammatory disorders and stress/anxiety. Its parents are Harlequin and Sour Tsunami. The effects of Harle-Tsu end to take effect in about 20 minutes.

Tora Bora

Tora Bora is an uncommon CBD strain that is not available in many markets, but requesting it from your medical cannabis or recreational cannabis dispensary may bring it to your local market. It is a cross between X18 Pure Pakistani and L.A. Confidential. It often tests at about 14.5-percent CBD/6-percent THC or higher in CBD. Now, this strain is categorized as a heavy indica strain, so if you have chronic pain and/or insomnia, this will help you.

Tora Bora has a distinctive blue hue to the buds and tastes earthy and spicy.



Bona DEA CBD+ is a high CBD strain that comes from blending Northern Lights, Black Domina and Afghani parents. It is an indica-dominant hybrid strain that has an average THC count of 5 to 10-percent. Since the THC count is a little higher in this strain, users will experience some psychoactive effects. Bona is ideal for helping relieve insomnia and chronic pain symptoms. This is also a great strain for those with muscle spasms or frequent muscle tightness.

This strain has a typical growing period of 8 to 9 weeks and flowers fast.

3D CBD Regular

3D CBD (CBD 3 Districts) genetics include Haze, Skunk and Afghan parents. It boasts a high terpene/cannabinoid concentration that is ideal for nausea relief, stress reduction and inflammatory reduction. This strain is a bit tricky to grow, so only a seasoned master grower should take this on. Cancer patients find great relief in the 1:1 ratio of CBD to THC. The ratio does mean that you will have some psychoactive effects, but it is a balanced strain that won’t have your head in the clouds too much.

Closing Thoughts

CBD strains are great for daytime use when you need to be productive but can’t have your thought process clouded. For adolescents, CBD strains have proven to work well, especially for those suffering from pediatric epilepsy conditions. Some veterinarians also suggest CBD use for pets suffering from arthritis pain, digestive issues and temperament difficulties.
