R4 (CBD Strain)

R4

13% CBD and >1% THC

Genetics: Heartland Cream x Reclining Buddah

This strain was originally created and crossbred by the lead grower Kelly Roller at Greenwerkz Dispensary in Edgewater and Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Greenwerkz wanted to keep an open market when it came to this strain and generously distributed seeds free of charge to Medical Marijuana Patients and anyone who could prove they have a legitimate Medical Marijuana Business. In the spirit of keeping the strain as close to non-profit as possible, due to the incredible healing nature of it, Greenwerkz made it mandatory that any other business selling the R4 strain would not be able to collect more than $15/eigth for it. Another stipulation was that any strain created using R4 must be made available to Greenwerkz. They also proceeded to receive the highest award for a CBD strain in the 2013 Cannabis Cup in Denver, Colorado.

R4 is truly an incredible creation, and has brought relief to so many people who rely on Medical Marijuana just to get through day to day. There is less than one percent THC, therefore there is no psychoactive high with the use of R4. However, on the other end, there can be up to 17% CBD in this strain which leads to the extreme pain relief factor accompanied by almost none of the side effects associated with the use of THC.


A little Blurb about CBD…..

“CBD has been reported to be effective in treating inflammation, diabetes, cancer, mood disorders (PTSD to ADD) and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. It has been reported to have anti-convulsive, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic, anti-nausea, anti-rheumatoid arthritic and sedative properties. One clinical trial showed that it eliminates anxiety and other unpleasant psychological ailments.

The CBD molecule exists in many plants including Flax and Azaleas. While some industrial hemp products offer high CBD concentrations, research suggests that CBD extracted from cannabis plants is more effective.” [Credit: http://www.marysmedicinals.com/cannabinoid-info/]


“Cannabis has been known to have anticonvulsant properties for over a century, and studies were done on the use of marijuana to alleviate seizures as early as the 19th century. While most data available today is anecdotal, those personal stories do point to cannabis as an asset in the fight to control seizures. Cannabis analogues have shown to prevent seizures when prescribed in combination with more traditional medications, and patients who have been through the combined drug therapy have stated they are able to wean themselves off the conventional medication and still not have seizures as long as they have a regular supply of cannabis.”[Credit: http://www.cannabissearch.com/medical_benefits/seizures/]
