3D CBD

3D CBD is a strain (cultivar) specially curated by the rapper Snoop Dogg, which he bred for its therapeutic benefits. It is a sativa-dominant hybrid (80%) with an earthy flavor. This strain has a relatively high ratio of cannabidiol (CBD) to THC (CBD:THC 8:5) and can provide users with many therapeutic and medicinal benefits. 3D CBD has a woody, spicy, herbal flavor and may help manage chronic pain, muscle tension, anxiety, and inflammation.

The 3D CBD is named for its possible three-dimensional lineage. Some experts believe it crosses Haze, Afghani, and Skunk strains. However, Snoop and other growers have left this fact shrouded in mystery. This parental hypothesis occurred due to 3D CBD’s intense skunk aroma with tropical notes. This strain is relatively rare, but if users can get their hands on it, they can have a greatly enjoyable high.

3D CBD is a more mellow high due to its lower THC content. The high begins with a relaxing flow that users describe as immensely happy and mellow. Individuals smoking this strain often want to sit back, relax, and enjoy the company of others. Users often experience body tingles and soothing of their minds. Some find this conducive to creativity. However, this strain can leave you free to do whatever you please, whether watching TV, painting, or just hanging out with friends.

Medical Applications

3D CBD, as the name suggests, has a higher amount of CBD than THC and is thus considered more of a medicinal strain best used for therapeutic purposes. The effects of THC are more mellow with this strain, but the high CBD content means some individuals have used this strain to help treat inflammation, hypertension, muscle cramps, and chronic pain. High-CBD strains such as 3D CBD are well known for managing chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and PTSD.

Growing

growing strains

Location and temperature are two of the most important factors when growing 3D CBD.  It grows best in semi-humid climates, like the Mediterranean or countries bordering the equator. It can still grow in other climates, but it’s best to grow indoors where you can easily change the temperate, humidity, and lighting to help optimize the growth.

That said, it’s a difficult strain to grow because it’s impossible to get ahold of the seeds. The only way to grow 3D CBD is by getting a clipping from another plant.

Height

3D CBD grows to a height of around 60-80 inches both inside and outside. This is around average for a cannabis plant. As it isn’t substantial, growers without a sizeable growing space may find this plant attractive.

Humidity and Temperature

As with many other cannabis plants, 3D CBD thrives in a warm climate. This has been compared to a Mediterranean climate, but growers in colder areas can still manage under indoor conditions where they can regulate the temperature.

Flowering

The flowering times for 3D CBD is between 62-71 days, a relatively short period for cannabis. The harvesting time is 76 days and yields around 1-2 ounces per square foot indoors. In an outdoor climate, it yields approximately 15-20 ounces per plant in an outdoor environment.

The flowers of 3D CBD are colored similarly to a mint plant. The trichomes are the show’s star, giving the buds a rich, gold hue that sparkles in the light.
