There are two parts to a marijuana plant, both have different effects concerning either a euphoric or relaxing feeling, making them for better use in different situations. These are either cannabidiol (CBD) or tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), both which act differently. High CBD marijuana strains are said to be more beneficial for medical purposes, while those higher in THC are more used for recreational purposes. One of these is called the Doctor doctor strain of marijuana. The CBD levels in this strain are much higher than THC, making this a good medical marijuana strain. Here we discuss the strain, its uses, as well as the benefits that you get through its use.
CBD/THC ratio is 20:1
The Doctor doctor strain of marijuana is made in the USA and is specifically made for its unique ratio of CBD to THC which makes it good for the use of many medical conditions. Hence, the name Doctor doctor. It is a phenotype of the strain Malawi which comes from Hawaii. Because of the very low levels of THC, this strain is not for anyone that wants to use it for recreational purposes to experience any “high” that you may get.
The chemical makeup of the Doctor doctor strain as mentioned is dominantly CBD. It has been shown to have on average around 20% CBD while the levels of THC are only 1-2.5%, making THC almost non-existent. Since this strain is a phenotype and not an original strain, it was made specifically for the purpose of having a high CBD level to help with different conditions.
Who should use it ?
Because of the CBD level and the effects of this strain, it is good for any type of stress that one may have, making it good to use in the evening after a stressful days work. This is due to the relaxation, increase in focus, as well as both mental and physical stress relief that it brings with it.

The relaxation and relief from stress that the CBD in marijuana brings may be part of why marijuana is helpful with epilepsy and other medical conditions. This may be true since many times stress by itself can be a trigger for many of these conditions. When it comes to seizures, these types of seizures brought on by mental or psychological stress and are what is known as PNES or psychogenic non epileptic seizures. Although the term psychogenic is used, this may not always be the case, and it may be due just to general stress. If stress is a trigger for any condition you may have, then anything that assists in relaxation and decreasing stress could possibly help
The effects of this strain bring with it a very aroused and focused feeling. It also helps with decreasing general stress and tension. Due to this increase in focus, it also brings with it an effect of being able to take deeper breaths which allow for one to go into deep thought, almost like a meditative state.

This strain also has a very fruity, citrus, and berry smell to it as well. As previously mentioned, this strain can be grown indoors or outside, although it may be a bit challenging if grown indoors. This can be done at any time but in order to do this, you’ll need some equipment if you want to get the most out of the plants.
