The differences between CBD cannabis seeds and traditional cannabis seeds mainly lie in the intended cannabinoid content of the plants that produce them and their use:

  1. Cannabinoid Profile :

    • CBD cannabis seeds have been specially developed to produce plants with a high CBD content. CBD (cannabidiol) is a cannabinoid that is non-psychoactive and is thought to provide various therapeutic benefits, such as pain relief and anxiety reduction.
    • Regular cannabis seeds produce plants with a wider range of cannabinoid profiles, often with higher THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) content. THC is the psychoactive compound that produces the 'high' that cannabis is best known for.
  2. Psychoactive Effects :

    • CBD cannabis seeds : The plants from these seeds are intended to produce minimal psychoactive effects, making them suitable for users seeking the medicinal benefits of cannabis without the high.
    • Regular cannabis seeds : These can lead to plants that produce strong psychoactive effects, which are preferred by recreational users.
  3. Use and Application :

    • CBD cannabis seeds are often used for medicinal purposes, as CBD is associated with relieving symptoms such as chronic pain, inflammation, epilepsy, and some mental disorders.
    • Regular cannabis seeds are used for both recreational and medicinal purposes, depending on the ratio of THC/CBD and other cannabinoids and terpenes in the specific strain.
  4. Cultivation characteristics :

    • CBD cannabis seeds and normal cannabis seeds may differ in cultivation characteristics, such as flowering time, growth form, yield and resistance to fungi or diseases. However, these differences depend more on the specific strain than on whether they are rich in CBD or THC.
  5. Legality and Availability :

    • CBD cannabis seeds may be legal in some jurisdictions, even where THC-rich strains are not, due to CBD's non-psychoactive properties.
    • Regular cannabis seeds may be subject to stricter regulations due to the psychoactive nature of THC.
