CBD is slowly but surely conquering the market. Although the effect of CBD is not fully proven scientifically, it seems that many medical conditions can benefit from the use of CBD. Until recently, CBD oil was the most popular, but people are now also discovering CBD joints. And you can buy them at our coffeeshop in Amsterdam.
But what exactly is a CBD joint? You may know that the THC content of a CBD joint is less than that of a regular joint, but what is in it? And which CBD joint is the best?
CBD joints explained
What is CBD again? CBD is short for Cannabidiol, which is a cannabinoid found naturally in cannabis plants. The difference between a CBD joint and a normal joint is the THC content. The THC content in normal joints varies between 15 and 25% and the most popular and best-selling cannabis joints have a THC content of 16.7% (according to research by the Trimbos Institute). Our CBD joints contain less than 0.2% THC. That is quite a difference with regular joints.
CBD joints are not used to get high, but for the positive effect CBD has. For example, CBD can relieve pain and reduce stress and depressive symptoms. CBD is also used by cancer patients to relieve the side effects of chemotherapy, among other things. And people with epilepsy, schizophrenia, and PTSD also seem to benefit from CBD.
What do the CBD joints from The Border contain?
The 2-pack joints you buy from The Border contain a mix of tops from the hemp plant. This mix is composed by The Border’s supplier. Because of the mix, the CBD joints contain multiple types of terpenes/flavors. Of course, we don’t just buy anything. All CBD weed is extensively tested by the lab assistants of ‘High Lab‘. This lab is, among other things, specialized in analyzing CBD weed. Each analysis is accompanied by a certificate, which states which substances are present in the CBD weed and to what extent.
All CBD strains we sell and process come from the Finola breed. This is an EU approved hemp strain developed by Sam Skunkman and Dr. JC Callaway. The Finola variety is known for its high CBD levels in mature plants and was previously known as FIN-314. The hemp variety is also known for its high formation of the terpene alpha-pinene. This terpene promotes freer breathing by providing relief to the respiratory system.
Which CBD joint is the best?
So although all CBD joints sold at The Border come from the same variety there is a difference in taste. For example, we are selling CBD skunk and CBD strawberry. Which CBD joint is the best is up to you. The best way to find out is to try. We can only ensure that you get the best quality CBD weed we could find. We are called the best coffeeshop in Amsterdam by our customers for a reason.
