Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
THC: 7% – 15%, CBD: 12%, CBN: 1%
This strain is an even blend of sativa and indica (50:50 sativa/indica ratio). It’s a great medical strain high in CBD, a chemical used to treat severe seizures and other conditions. But it’s very low in THC 7–15% at most – so Cannatonic isn’t a good bet for getting high, despite its name. The high, such as it is, is relaxed and uplifting with both mental and physical qualities. Cannatonic has an earthy smell, with a woody citrus flavor. It’s most popular in the Pacific Northwest, California, and Michigan. This strain is best for treating epilepsy and pain, as it provides a deep feeling of relaxation with uplifting cerebral effects. Cannatonic is a hybrid blend of MK Ultra, an indica, and the legendary G-13 Haze, an indica-dominant hybrid. The strain was bred to produce a greater ratio of sativa to indica, and that helps keep the head high clear. Possible side effects include dry mouth, while anxiety and paranoia are less likely.
As more studies are done on the effects of CBD, more breeders have begun to breed CBD rich strains. For many the idea of a strain with a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD may sound ridiculous, but Resin Seeds strove to achieve this in their strain Cannatonic.
Their final product ended up being a 50/50 hybrid strain that barely achieved a THC percentage higher than 6 percent, however, it’s CBD content tested between 6 and 17 percent.
A powerfully relaxing strain, Cannatonic is very uplifts and focuses the mind. These effects are slightly overshadowed by the strong warming and numbing sensations that flow over the body. Great for those that need pain relief in the morning or afternoon, the strain may also calm muscle spasms, migraines and headaches. It may calm nausea, anxiety, stress and mood disorders.
By pollinating a female MK Ultra with the well known male G13 Haze, Resin Seeds created an earthy and citrus tasting strain.
Resistant to many pests, Cannatonic has reportedly had some issues with molds and mildews, meaning it should probably be kept in a controlled environment or carefully watched. Resin Seeds keeps some very in depth growing information on their website for the strain when grown indoors. They recommend vegetating for a week, using Bio Vega and Bio Rhizotonic. Clones may need an eye kept on them to ensure the development of a strong root system. After the vegetative period comes a nine week flowering period, during the last of which Resin Seeds advises lowering the hours of light to ten from twelve. Cannatonic plants may yield up to 500 grams per square meter indoors. Outside in October, these plants may be harvested for 250 to 400 grams per plant.
