CANNATONIC STRAIN REVIEW

STRAIN: Cannatonic (60-I/40-S)
GENETICS: MK Ultra(OG Kush x G-13) x G-13/Haze
PRICE: $50 1/8th
FOUND AT: Cannabis 4 Health

Relatively new to the scene, Cannatonic harnesses great medicinal potential with its equal 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD. What is CBD? CBD is a major cannabinoid found in almost all varieties of cannabis, and is responsible for the majority of medicinal benefits. Muscle spasms, convulsions, nausea, and inflammation are just a few of the symptoms that CBD helps with. Sativas generally have a lower percentage of CBD, while Indicas generally have a higher percentage of CBD. Even some of the heaviest Indicas top out at about 1.2-2% CBD. Cannatonic was tested at 7% CBD and 7% THC, making the medicinal potential for this hybrid unbelievable. The buds are incredibly dense and sticky, coated with glistening golden resin glands. Although the aroma is quite mild, the earthy sweetness is pleasent. The smoke is very expansive, I had a hard time holding in my first hit from the vaporizer. The flavor is similar to the smell, mildly earthy and a little sweet. The effects are where this strain starts to shine! This stuff is a creeper, taking about 15 minutes to fully take hold. Very heavy muscle relaxation felt throughout the entire body, while my head remained relatively clear. My thoughts were not cloudy, which was a nice change from most Indica-dominant strains. This strain had me so relaxed I caught myself staring at the wall more than once! The muscle spasms I experience daily in my arms and legs were completely nonexistent. The effects slowly drifted to drowsiness over the course of about an hour, leaving me sound asleep on the couch. I still felt the effects in the morning, which rarely happens with me anymore. I would not recommend Cannatonic for daytime use, or any social activities that require an outgoing attitude. Although I didn't feel totally clouded, I bacame very quiet and introspective shortly after medicating. I am NOT a doctor, but... I believe this strain has great medicinal potential; known for effectively relieving a wide variety of symptoms, including: muscle spasms, nausea, tremors, convulsions, insomnia, random pains, anxiety, and the list goes on. The low, 7% THC content is beneficial for patients who don't particularly enjoy the typical psychoactive "head high" usually experienced when consuming varieties with higher percentages of THC. There is a mild "head" effect, but it's mostly body. Be sure to check out Cannatonic, this is true medicine!

  1. Excellent review! I agree totally, I have epilepsy, nocturnal tonic clonic seizures, muscle spasms, and insomnia. I can't describe the taste or smell as I purchased mine in oil form. I can say it is bitter but that doesn't bother me as the fact that I do not fear waking up with swollen lips, and a bloody tongue bite. I put 3-4 drops of oil on my finger and smear it on my tongue. The relaxing body high is felt almost immediately. I wake up with a smile.
