A Powerful CBD Dominant Strain of Marijuana

There are many strains of marijuana that are on the market. So many that it’s hard to know the exact type you need. This will all depend on main purpose of use. Each strain of marijuana has both cannabidiol (CBD), and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which are the main parts of the strain. Any marijuana strain high in CBD has been shown to have positive effects for different medical conditions, while those high in THC have a more psychotic effect and “high” that you get. For anyone needing a good medical marijuana strain, you may ask ‘What strain of marijuana is good for me ?’. Here’s a good marijuana strain with a high CBD to THC ratio that can be used for many medical issues. You’ll find out where it’s from, it’s makeup, how to use it, as well as what it’s good for. 


CBD to THC:  Has a 12:1 CBD to THC ratio

Make up: Made from two different phenotypes of ACDC

Taste/Smell: Earthy, sweet, and spicy aroma


The strain of ACDC, along with the thunderstruck are both considered rocking since they were named after a rock band and one of their songs. The ACDC strain was started and made in order to get the most pure form of marijuana with little to no THC, and a high percentage of CBD in order to help with medical conditions.  The fact that thunderstruck has more CBD than ACDC by itsself is good. This video describes ACDC. Since thunderstruck comes from two strains of ACDC, it is similar, only stronger so you should get an idea about it as well.

Physical appearance & Growth

Thunderstruck can be grown either indoors or outside, but since the humidity must be controlled and lower, it may be better to be grown indoors, at least during the hot months of the year depending on the region that you live in. In order to do this, you’ll need some equipment if you want to get the most out of the plants. The plant itself has a bright color to it with both the green leaves and the pistols which are orange. You may also want to use cages to grow these plants in, or at least use something that they can be tied to in order to control the shape of the plant. If you do choose to grow the strain, you can find dispensaries here. 

The exact percentage of CBD or THC will depend on how the plant is grown. In order to get the best result, it may be a good idea if possible to see that the seeds are made of equal percentages of each phenotype.

Any strain of CBD is good for different conditions, and the lower the percentage of THC is, the better the medical benefits will be. This strain was made with the intention of having a high CBD amount in order to help with any medical conditions that can benefit from its use. Because the ratio of CBD to THC is 12:1, this makes it one of the highest CBD strains. If you’re considering growing the strain, here are some videos that should help. 

Chemical Makeup & Uses

Since this strain is low in THC (2%), it isn’t for anyone that wants to use marijuana for any type of high feeling or for recreational purposes. Because thunderstruck does have a small amount of THC, it does help you maintain focus and is good for concentration. If you have an important project to finish, then this strain will help with the focus you may need.

Because of the high level of CBD (24%) that the thunderstruck strain of marijuana has, this gives it a calming effect when ingested. This will help with depression, allowing you to make the best of each moment, similar to meditation. This also makes it a good strain to use before going to bed, or if you want to take a nap.

Chart by Visualizer

The relaxation and relief from stress may be part of why it is a marijuana strain that is good for epilepsy since many times stress by itself can be a trigger for a seizure to occur. More research has to be done in order to know the exact chemical changes which may occur when using this or other forms of CBD that help with controlling epilepsy.

Although enough research has been done in order to see some effect that CBD has on seizure control and a medication has been produced, more research should still be done in order to totally understand how this process works.

In conclusion, the strain of thunderstruck is made up of parts of the ACDC strain and is on the higher end concerning the amount of CBD concentration (12:1 CBD-THC). This makes it good for any medical condition which may benefit from relaxation and calming such as depression or anxiety, epilepsy, and other conditions. For anyone that has experience in using this strain, you can leave a comment below.
