CBD Spider Bud (Charlotte’s Web) Overview

AVERAGE THC/CBD LEVEL: 0.5-1% THC / 15-20% CBD

Charlotte’s Web also known as CBD Spider Bud, is a medicinal cannabis strain with high CBD quantities. The strain was cultivated by Colorado breeders for a young patient with epilepsy and has little to no psychoactive effect.

However, inexperienced users should be cautious, this strain’s high CBD content may cause dizziness or nausea. With CBD quantities as high as 20%, Charlotte’s Web can have more than 300 times the CBD content as a standard recreational strain.

CBD doesn’t directly affect the body’s endocannabinoid receptors. It is believed to work indirectly, increasing the body’s acceptance and stimulation of endocannabinoid compounds. CBD may actually boost many of the human body’s naturally occurring processes.

Charlotte’s Web or CBD Spider Bud is available in concentrated oil for easy medical ingestion but also is grown for patients who prefer traditional flower. The flower of the bud is Sativa looking in appearance. It has stretched, tapered buds and deep green leaves.

Those accustomed to more psychoactive strains will notice that Charlotte’s Web has relatively few pistils and, due to the near-absence of THC-laden trichomes, very little stickiness. Its scent is more familiar: dank and piney with some light floral notes. When burnt, this strain gives off a smooth smoke. On the exhale, it may taste slightly skunky with an underlying grassy, vegetal taste that speaks to its hemp content.
