Charlotte’s network is a high CBD medical strain that is widely used in medicine. Colorado manufacturers Stanley Brothers created this strain specifically for Charlotte Figi, a young patient with epilepsy. The effectiveness of Charlotte’s Web strain was published in a special issue of CNN and attracted enough attention for hundreds of people to begin treatment with this strain.
The Charlotte variety contains virtually no THC, but its content in the CBD is between 15 and 20%. Unlike his cousin, cannabinoid THC, CBD does not directly affect the endocannabinoid receptors of the body. Instead, it is believed that it acts indirectly, increasing the availability of the body’s endocannabinoid compounds to stimulate these receptors. CBD can act as an enhancer to help many of the body’s natural functions.
Although Charlotte’s Web is available as a concentrated oil for oral administration, this strain is also available for adults who prefer more traditional uses. The flowers of this hemp variety have the appearance of a Sativa with long pointed buds and olive-green leaves. When burned, this strain gives off a slightly pungent smoke with a grassy taste.
Effects on the body
Depending on the specific phenotype of this strain, users can get some effects, ranging from increasing the feeling of well-being to some sensory improvement. On the whole, Charlotte at the medical level is characterized by low psychoactivity, which makes it an ideal choice for patients.
Researchers believe that the presence of CBD can turn off any unpleasant or disturbing feelings caused by trace amounts of THC. CBD in this strain can bind to receptors that regulate inflammation, body temperature, and pain, making it a powerful tool for those suffering from these symptoms.
Features of growing strain
There are no seeds of Charlotte’s Web strain commercially available, so you should be careful with stores that offer them for sale.
If potential growers can get the shots of this rare plant, they can grow it both indoors and outdoors. Plants are dense and begin to bloom within 8-9 weeks. This variety, as a rule, gives a high crop of flowers.
