CBD-rich cannabis is an excellent tool for cannabis users looking to take advantage of the relaxing effects of cannabis without the euphoric blow of THC. While many dominant varieties in CBD fall into the aroma or flavor categories, some breeders and growers have worked hard to perfect unique genetics that offer all the surprise factor of heavyweight indoor buds without the intoxicating razzmatazz of the dominant strains of THC.
If you are visiting or living in Oregon, here are some of the top CBD trees that you can’t miss.
These strains were graded and scored using Leafly’s cannabis grading system. For more information on scoring criteria, click here.
Astal work by Prūf Cultivar
Prūf Cultivar’s Astral Works is easily the best variety of CBD I’ve had in years. Its amazing citrus aroma is full-bodied without being strongly sour. The subtle notes of pepper, herbs and hay temper the brilliance of the aroma while contributing to the overall complexity of the variety’s fragrance.
The flavor also went beyond any CBD variety I had ever tasted, after the aroma with hints of citrus and floral notes that lingered on the palate before concluding with a pleasant, clean finish.
Its effects are also outstanding, offering a quiet relaxation without being dissociative, confusing, or distracting.

Bleugenius by Eugeni
Bleugenius of Eugenius is an exceptional flower with a predominance of CBD with an interesting bud structure. Its appearance is a bit out of the ordinary, expressing aromatic but beautiful flowers, covered with dazzling crystal resin.
The sticky, greasy buds express an aromatic depth that is not characteristic of most dominant strains in CBD, but which are really lovely. The notes of citrus, pine, pepper, basil and floral spices are supported by an earthy moisture that complements the strange arrangement of terpenes of the variety.
This strain was tested with a ratio of approximately 22: 1 CBD to THC, so the effects were clear although they still had a small advantage.

Cannatonic # 4 by Phantom Farms
Cannatonic has been a common choice for consumers of CBD and Cannatonic # 4 of Phantom Farms follows the same. Although a little less fragrant than our other two selections, this variety still offered interesting notes of hops, citrus and honey that opened in a swampy bunch of herbs.
The effects of Cannatonic # 4 completed the experience with a soft, clear buzz that many of us described as the perfect drink.
