ACDC is a CBD-dominant cultivar made from a phenotype of Cannatonic and Ruderalis.
Just like its parent strain, ACDC does not contain a high amount of THC, but rather a high amount of CBD. It is typically a 20:1 ratio, with the CBD averages around 15-26% and the THC around 0.5-1.3%.
ACDC can really flourish when given the correct care. If grown indoors, the buds are big and lengthy with a greenish-orange tint and lots of amber pistils.
Due to its unique terpene profile the buds of ACDC have a citrus and kush aroma when lightly inhaled through the nose.
The taste of ACDC is similar to its smell; however, the citrus and lemon notes are much more apparent especially during the exhale.
The terpenes present in ACDC Marijuana are what causes both its aroma and some of its strain-specific effects. The main terpenes found in ACDC are:
- Beta-Caryophyllene: Caryophyllene gives off a spicy peppery scent and can be found in black pepper, basil, rosemary, and oregano. This is the only terpene that binds to cannabinoid receptors making it a potent analgesic and anxiolytic agent. Recent research has also demonstrated its potential to treat alcohol withdrawal symptoms.
- Linalool: This terpene smells of lavender and offers many benefits such as being an analgesic, anxiolytic, anti-inflammatory, antidepressant, anti-epileptic,, antipsychotic, and a potential sedative.
- Beta-Myrcene: Myrcene is the most abundant terpene in most cannabis strains. It is popular for its anti-inflammatory effects and is also used as a sleep aid.
- Alpha-Pinene: Pinene is found in pine trees and other plants. Potential alpha-pinene benefits are anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and antimicrobial, as well as respiratory and neuroprotective. Researchers are studying whether alpha-pinene can treat or prevent Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological conditions.
- Limonene: Limonene is found in most citrus fruits and gives off a strong lemon aroma. It is best used as a mood enhancer, reducing stress, inducing creativity, and decreasing symptoms of depression. In addition to all of that, it also offers anti-bacterial and anti-fungal potential.
The effects of ACDC will be unique to each individual depending on their personal endocannabinoid system (ECS). Typically, ACDC induces light body feeling along with a motivated spark of energy. It decreases anxiety, reduces stress, alleviates depression, uplifts one’s mood, stimulates appetite, and helps sleep.
The following can be expected after using ACDC products:
- Light euphoria.
- Dry eyes.
- Dry mouth.
Due to its anti-oxidant and neuroprotective properties of cannabinoid and high CBD levels, ACDC is the perfect strain for many medical complications.
