CBD is seemingly everywhere, taking over so much of the conversation and usage involving cannabinoids. But things are way different ten years ago. Before, CBD was considered a risky investment of time and space for cannabis growers. In addition, it also took researchers and scientists to find strains with high levels of CBD. Once they’ve found the strains, they went on to isolate them out as a new product that can be cultivated and brought to harvest.
Despite fairly uniform levels of hesitancy, the collective effort paid off. Today’s growers have a variety of strong CBD strains that can be used for purely medical purpose. And these CBD strains don’t have the characteristic high of other cannabis strains.
Selective breeding in agriculture is not a new thing. Today’s agriculture breeders, however, have much more information about how it works. They are also more knowledgeable about how to bring new strains and varieties of plants along. With hemp, modern science can accurately analyze plants to determine precise levels of the cannabinoids contained in them. In turn, growers can use this information to further concentrate on new strains.
Today’s research into all forms of cannabis is unlocking the complex web of interconnected substances at work within the hemp plant. One that makes a strain more suited for recreation and another for easing anxiety or the pain of arthritic knees. The scientific investigative efforts continue, but they’ve already yielded tremendous results in making hemp more readily available for specific uses with fewer side effects.

- 1. Simply culling out plants that grew poorly over the course of the season and planting seeds from crops that flourished.
- 2. Growers would want plants that thrive in their local climate. This includes the plants’ resistance to mold, disease, insects, and drought.
- 3. The most observable and accurate way to gauge potency was by ingesting some of your harvests and seeing how high you got.
