The ACDC strain (cultivar) is perfect for treating various medical conditions due to its high levels of CBD. The CBD to THC ratio, reported to be 20:1, shows this strain helps obtain marijuana’s medical benefits without intoxication. ACDC may help manage anxiety, neuropathic pain, and epilepsy.
The ACDC strain is not named after the rock band but is an acronym for “Alternative Cannabinoid Dietary Cannabis.” The strain was given its name by the original breeder, Northern California physician Dr. William Courtney in 2011. He acquired the seeds from Barcelona and crossed them with Cannatonic and Ruderalis strains hoping they’d help with his wife’s lupus. Dr. Courtney’s intention is for it to be used as an (unheated) dietary supplement.
This hybrid blend has an equal balance between indica and sativa components. Users have reported that it is an uplifting blend that allows concentration and intense calmness. It is primarily used for its therapeutic effects.
