What Are Medical Seeds?
Medicinal quality cannabis seeds have been specifically bred to be beneficial for those with all kinds of medical ailments. The most relevant development is the rise of CBD-dominant strains. Cannabidiol is one of the many – over 66 – cannabinoids present in cannabis, and is known for its medicinal benefits without additional psychoactive effects.
CBD is the second-most common cannabinoid in cannabis after THC. It provides pain relief and influences muscle relaxation, while also helping to quiet the mind without the ‘high’ feeling. Many CBD strains exist, ranging from those that are at a 1:1 ratio with THC content to CBD-heavy strains with almost no THC present.
Medical Marijuana History
This is where cannabis Ruderalis comes into the picture: a wild-growing type of cannabis that’s autoflowering rather than photoperiod, and which naturally contains less THC but higher percentages of CBD. Although first identified by Dmitrij Erastovich Janischewsky in 1924, it wasn’t until the 1980s that cannabis breeders began to experiment by crossbreeding Sativas and Indicas with Ruderalis.
As the breeding of medical cannabis strains has gained popularity in recent years, crossbreeding with Ruderalis has become common practice. This is not only to produce autoflowering strains, which flower independently of a light schedule, but also to breed strains that are higher in CBD and more appropriate for everyday medical use.
Why Are Medical Seeds So Popular Now?
Buying medical seeds to grow a personal supply of marijuana is, for a number of medical patients, the best option to treat the symptoms of a range of illnesses. This has been recognized in 35 of the 50 U.S. states and over 40 countries, with varying restrictions. As a result, seed collectors and marijuana enthusiasts have developed more and more medical marijuana seeds in recent years.
Many people are searching for homeopathic ways to manage their symptoms without being reliant on pharmaceuticals or other treatments with uncomfortable side-effects. Medical seeds high in cannabinoids and terpenes can be beneficial for those with a range of conditions, including depression and anxiety, chronic pain and inflammation, nausea, seizures, migraines, and more. Although further research needs to be conducted, existing evidence shows that medical marijuana is therapeutically beneficial in multiple ways.
