Valentine X marijuana strain was named after the patron saint of epilepsy, and is a real 50/50 hybrid strain. It has a shockingly high CBD: THC ratio of 25:1 making it arguably the most sought after marijuana strain. The breeders at Synergy Wellness, based out of California, have poured all they have into this strain, with medical patients specifically in mind the entire time.
Valentine X can credit its incredible healing properties thanks to where it comes from. Being a variant of the ACDC marijuana strain plays a significant role in why it is so beneficial to the medical community.
ACDC is a Sativa-dominant phenotype from another high CBD strain that has 19% CBD found within it. It helps users feel relaxed, happy, and focused. Overall flavor profile to this strain is earthy, woody and pine.
In a way, Valentine X can be looked at as ACDC, but more refined to enhance the CBD profile even further. When the two are compared next to each other, they are very similar, but have minor variations in the terpene concentrations.
The breeders named this strain after St. Valentine, because he is the saint that watches over those with epilepsy. This strain has immensely changed the life of many of those who suffer from it.
Synergy Wellness specialized in all things CBD and wanted to bring a marijuana strain into the community that could provide users with all the attributes CBD has to offer. They took their time in developing this strain and wanted to make one that would work 100%, and therefore didn’t rush the process.
The first stand out effects are going to be its healing properties, but it also is excellent for energy boosts, creative thinking, and sharpening up overall focus. Because the CBD level is so high in this strain, it is excellent for any type of user, and is prescribed to those who don’t typically use marijuana. Many describe the high in this as not being a high at all, and users can expect to feel a mild body buzz. It can be similar to the body buzz or ‘numbness’ that you might experience after a deep tissue massage.
Effects felt by the Valentine X marijuana strain come on fast, and are very strong, even though the “high” feeling won’t be active.

CBD in this strain measures in at a whopping 25% and the THC barley hits 1% making this a stand out medical marijuana strain. Great for those who want to use marijuana but may be sensitive or allergic to THC.
As the name implies, Valentine X was explicitly made for treating epilepsy. Epilepsy causes seizures due to nerve cells in the brain being distributed.
