Are you interested in using CBD? You aren’t alone: 14 percent of Americans have used CBD to help boost their health and wellbeing. Yet if you want to start using CBD, it’s easy to get confused by the preponderance of options that you have available to you.

There are tinctures, gummies, vape juices, and more. Yet if you’re used to smoking, is it possible to smoke CBD?

The answer is yes! There are high CBD strains of marijuana and hemp available that offer a great and easy way to use CBD. In this guide, we’ll take a look at some of the best CBD strains that you can buy in 2020.

Ready to get started? Then read on and prepare to roll up!

1. Harlequin

Despite its theatrical name, Harlequin isn’t an advanced strain. It’s one of the best high-CBD strains around and we’d recommend checking it out if you’re interested in smoking your CBD.

This strain is a hybrid of Sativa and Indica and packs a stony punch. The CBD:THC ratio is around 5:2, which means that while it will still get you high, you’re much less likely to feel paranoid or anxious when you’ve smoked it.

It’s one of the best strains that you can buy to help with pain and anxiety and it’s pretty tasty too. The smoke tastes earthy but with an aftertaste of tropical fruit.

For a delicious introduction to the best CBD strains on the market, Harlequin is superb.

2. Ringo’s Gift

If you are not interested in getting high at all, Ringo’s Gift is one of the best strains of marijuana around. It’s not, as you may think, named for Ringo Starr. Instead, it’s named after Lawrence Ringo, a well-known marijuana activist.

While it does contain THC, you can get this strain in almost any CBD:THC ratio that you can imagine. The original was 1:1 but today, you can find strains that are around 24:1! This means that the effects of the CBD are much more dominant in this strain.

If you smoke this strain, prepare for incredible relaxation. If your brain is frazzled from too much stress, pain, or anxiety, it’s perfect: it’s like getting a brain massage.

3. Cherry Wine

Are you more interested in high CBD hemp strains? If you’d rather avoid marijuana and THC altogether, then consider Cherry Wine.

This amazing strain of hemp is a cross between two well-known strains called Charlotte’s Cherries and Charlotte’s Wife. Together, they make this strain that can be up to 22 percent CBD.

As a result, smoking Cherry Wine feels amazing. It’s relaxing and restorative, without feeling medicinal.

In terms of taste, as you may expect, there’s a strong taste of cherries but there’s also notes of black pepper and earthiness. It’s one of the most popular hemp strains that you can buy and with good reason.


It may be marijuana but it’s not going to get you high: ACDC is a strain that melts away anxiety in a haze of delicious smoke. It’s a phenotype of the well-known strain Cannatonic and it’s perfect for anxiety.

While this strain does have THC in it, it’s got a ratio of about 20:1 CBD:THC. This means that it’s very unlikely to make you anxious or paranoid.

As well as anxiety, it’s also good for pain and stress. You’ll be left with a clear head but feel much more relaxed after you’ve imbibed of ACDC.

What does it taste like? It’s overwhelmingly herbal, with a few notes of pine and pepper too. A very pleasant, easy smoke for those who want the best CBD-heavy strains.

5. Lifter

Do you want to get lifted? We don’t mean get high out of your gourd: this high CBD strain of hemp isn’t going to get you high but it will lift energy levels and make you feel like a million bucks!

Unlike a lot of CBD strains that are all about relaxation, this strain of hemp is great for lifting your mood and energy. You’ll feel revitalized and ready to take on the world after smoking some lifter.

While we wouldn’t recommend that you smoke it before bed, if you’re looking for something to smoke in the morning or afternoon, Lifter is a superb choice,.

6. Cannatonic

While the name might bring to mind sleepiness, this strain isn’t going to put you on your behind. You can get versions of this strain with a CBD:THC ratio from 5:1 down to 1:1, so you can use it to get high if you’d prefer.

This strain of marijuana is most often used for pain and anxiety, as well as some specific uses like alleviating migraines. Like its relative ACDC, this strain tastes exceptionally herbal with undertones of pine and pepper.

This strain might be best avoided if you regularly get a dry mouth when you smoke, however, as this strain is well-known for causing one.

7. Sweet and Sour Widow

For those who want a slightly more potent blend of THC and CBD, Sweet and Sour Widow is a good choice. Packing a healthy dose of THC as well as CBD, this strain is great for anxiety and pain.

Its most prominent effects, as well as helping pain, are feelings of happiness and sleepiness. Relaxation is the name of the game when it comes to this strain and we wouldn’t recommend smoking it at the start of the day.
