Holland. CBD-rich Medical Cannabis Available In Coffee Shops
The Dutch coffee shop model for cannabis distribution made some important progress recently when the ‘Siberie’ coffee shop started to offer CBD-rich cannabis. The move has been popular with medical cannabis users in Holland, many of whom have a high value for the CBD-rich cannabis varieties which offers a range of valuable benefits for medical users. Many people with MS, Crohns Disease, epilepsy, chronic pain and others ailments have found that CBD-rich cannabis offers significant benefits over the traditional THC-rich cannabis. CBD-rich cannabis contains 4% or more Cannabidiol (CBD) in the dried buds.
Siberie’s first CBD-rich offering is Dutch Passion’s ‘ComPassion’ variety which has a 1:1 ratio of THC:CBD, and typically has around 7%-8% of both CBD and THC in the buds. Most typical ‘street weed’ contains around 0.1% CBD, meaning that the CBD-rich varieties can only be created by careful selective breeding coupled with intensive analytical laboratory testing throughout the process.
