CBD Spider Bud (Charlotte’s Web) Overview

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.
