Anyone that knows about marijuana is aware of the two parts which make it up and what their structure is good for. Each strain of marijuana has both cannabidiol (CBD), and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which are the main parts of the strain. Higher CBD marijuana strains are said to be more beneficial for medical purposes, while those higher in THC are more used for recreational purposes. There are many good medical marijuana strains. Here is one called the Ringo’s gift strain. Although it does have a small amount of THC, this is great for the treatment of numerous medical conditions.
Has a 60/40 percentage makeup between Sativa/Indica
Hybrid made from ACDC and Harle-Tsu.
Has an average level of 20% CBD and 1% THC
Can be as high as 24:1 to as low as 1:1 ratios of CBD to THC
When most individuals hear the name Ringo, the first person that comes to mind is probably the musician. This strain just like music will allow you to be free spirited and uplifted some, it also helps you stay relaxed, focused, and creative. The strain was actually named after an individual by the name of Lawrance Ringo. He is one of many individuals that were original marijuana activists and pioneers. He was looking for a good medical type strain of marijuana to be used in the beginning. Research into different combinations of hybrid strains and their medical effects were continued until discovering the one here which it is named for.
Physical appearance & Growth
The Ringo’s gift strain of marijuana can be grown either indoors or outside. Although seeds are available to grow the plant yourself, if you have no experience & don’t know someone that could help you in the process, this may not be a good idea.
If you have the experience in growing marijuana though, purchasing seeds for growth is less expensive than buying fully grown buds, or produced products if you know you’ll be using them long term.
If you do decide to grow it yourself, then growing it outdoors, you can expect to yield between 10 and 16 ounces per plant. When it is grown indoors, it will give an average of 8 to 12 ounces per meter squared in height. The flowers their selves are hairy with orange pistils. If you choose to grow the seeds indoors, you’ll need some equipment in order to get the most out of the plants.
The smell and taste that you get from this strain is herb like, along with a minty, peppery, and sweet smell as well. Ringo’s gift can take up to 9 weeks to become fully mature and should be grown in a moderate climate. If you are considering growing the strain, here are some videos that should help.
Percentages of THC and CBD in this strain can vary depending on the phenotype that is being used. It has been shown to have as high as a 1 to 24 ratios of THC to CBD, all the way down to a 1 to 1 ratio. Before purchasing any strain of marijuana regardless of the type strain, research should be done concerning the phenotype and exact percentage of CBD and THC in the product. On average this strain has been shown to have around 1 %THC and 20% CBD.
You will probably experience a warm and relaxing feeling, as well as energizing feeling when using this strain. A calmness of the mind has also been seen, but as previously mentioned, this may vary depending on the phenotype used which can make the CBD and THC content different. Some conditions that you can use this strain to treat include: anxiety, panic attacks, general stress, attention deficit disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, epilepsy, as well as arthritis. There have also been effects such as anti inflammatory use for general or chronic pain, and ALS as well.
Due to the high CBD to low THC ratio (24:1), this is good for medical purposes, but since the phenotype s can vary, giving it a higher THC content, it’s still seen being used in places like clubs for recreational use for its relaxation and social effects that it can have.
The relaxation and relief from stress may be part of why it is helpful with the previously mentioned conditions since many times stress by itself can be a trigger for these to occur. Having a seizure related to this would probably be more of what is known as PNES or psychogenic non epileptic seizures.
If this is the case, you should do research and try to determine the root cause. When other professional or self-help therapies are combined with the effects that CBD can have on depression or anxiety, these type seizures may disappear.
For most individuals that suffer from seizures, it’s the chemical imbalance that triggers the seizures. 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.
The Ringo’s gift strain of marijuana is well-known for it’s low THC levels and high CBD levels (1% & 24% respectively), but since this, or any strain can vary in THC to CBD ratio depending on the phenotype used, this should be researched prior to purchasing. Because the average strain has a higher CBD level, and is lower THC level on average, it is used more for medical than recreational purposes. Since this is the case, it not only bears the name of the individual that discovered it, but also describes exactly what it is, a gift.
