Canna-Tsu is a unique, well-balanced strain, that produces effects different than most cannabis strains. Canna-Tsu users trade in the munchies, and strong psychoactive effects, for therapeutic benefits and pure relaxation.
With its high CBD levels and low THC levels, this strain is especially prized among the medical marijuana community. But, you don’t have to have a serious health condition in order to enjoy the Canna-Tsu strain.
Let’s dive into what this strain really is, and what makes it so special.
Canna-Tsu is the incredible result of crossing two popular CBD-rich strains— Cannatonic and Sour Tsunami. Because both parent strains have higher than average CBD levels, the canna-tsu strain has CBD levels that are off the charts.
Although this strain does have a THC content that’s over the legal limit in many states, it’s still very low. Just to give you an idea of how low, let’s look at a few other popular strains. The famous Sour Diesel strain, and the Blue Dream strain, both have a THC content of around 18%. Strains like OG Kush or Girl Scout Cookies have a THC content of about 19%. Then, you have strains like Ghost OG which can have a THC content upwards of 28%.
Canna-Tsu has a THC content at just 8-11%.
Now, let’s look at the CBD content. Canna-Tsu has an impressive CBD content of around 10%. Maybe that doesn’t actually sound like a lot, until you compare it to a strain like Sour Diesel, that has a CBD content of only 0.1-0.3%.
Canna-Tsu is a perfectly balanced hybrid at exactly 50% indica and 50% sativa. The Canna-Tsu strain offers effects that are more therapeutic or medicinal, than mind-altering. With such low levels of THC, Canna-Tsu probably won’t cause brain fog, disorientation, or the classic marijuana high. Canna-Tsu is fantastic for those seeking the benefits of CBD, while still wanting to remain clear-headed.
Many people choose CBD heavy strains, because of the incredible therapeutic effects that CBD produces. CBD has been known to help people with health conditions ranging from eczema to cancer.
CBD does not produce any psychoactive effects, and will not make you high. CBD and THC are both cannabinoids found in marijuana plants. But, THC produces psychoactive effects and can make you feel high—CBD will not.
CBD is also considered legal in all 50 states—THC is not. For a CBD product to be legal in all 50 states, it must be derived from hemp and must contain less than 0.3% THC. This means that Canna-Tsu is still only legal in some states, because it’s derived from marijuana and contains more than 0.3% THC. But, Canna-Tsu is a fantastic choice if you’re looking for a less psychoactive alternative to traditional marijuana, and you live in a state where marijuana is legal.
THC does have some therapeutic benefits of its own. Some patients suffering from intense health conditions even need the unique combination of CBD and THC. That’s why they may choose a strain with a low THC content versus a CBD product without THC. But, if you aren’t lucky enough to live in a state where marijuana is legal, you may still want to give CBD products without THC a try.
CBD may help relieve a wide variety of symptoms including:
- Chronic Pain
- Skin conditions
Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
Canna-Tsu doesn’t have an overwhelming aroma like many marijuana strains do. Instead, it has a pleasant subtle earthy and citrus aroma. You may also notice an underlying element of sweetness, letting you know that this strain is sure to be a treat.
The taste of the Canna-Tsu strain is similar to its aroma. You’re likely to taste sweet citrus along with some earthy flavors. You may also pick up on a hint of spice.
Canna-Tsu buds are smaller than average. Many people in the cannabis world would refer to them as “popcorn buds” because the largest of these buds aren’t much bigger than a piece of popcorn. The flowers are dense and range in color from yellowish-green to light green, with brassy orange pistils. What’s interesting about the appearance of this strain, is that even with the low levels of THC, the sugar leaves are still covered in glistening crystals.
Because Canna-Tsu contains such low amounts of THC, the psychoactive effects this strain may produce are pretty mild. Instead of making you feel stoned and unmotivated, this strain will likely increase mental clarity and brain function. This strain is known to produce a sort of light and airy high, that relaxes and uplifts the mind and body.
Also due to the extremely small amounts of THC, this strain isn’t likely to produce any major negative side effects. You shouldn’t have to worry about any THC induced anxiety or paranoia with this strain, as long as you stick to a small or average dose. In other words, just don’t have too much. Know your limits and stick to them.
As with any cannabis strain, whether it has a lot of THC or not, you can probably expect at least a little bit of dry mouth or dry eyes. However, this can be easily managed or even avoided with a little bit of prep work. Just be sure to stay hydrated before, during, and after you use Canna-Tsu. For the dry eyes, moisturizing eye drops should do the trick.
Canna-Tsu is recognized in the medical marijuana community as a helpful source for a variety of mental and physical conditions. For physical conditions, a more potent dose may be needed. Sometimes, tinctures, concentrates, extracts, and edibles of Cann-Tsu are available. These may be a better alternative to smoking if you need an extra potent dose.
For, mental conditions, a small to average dose of Canna-Tsu should work just fine. You may actually want to stay away from larger doses, especially if you are naturally prone to anxiety. A small to average amount can be beneficial, but a significant amount may increase your anxiety.
Physical Conditions Canna-Tsu may help relieve:
- Chronic pain
- Chronic stress
- Muscle spasms
- Chronic back pain
- Chronic fatigue
Mental Conditions Canna-Tsu may help relieve:
