CBD Crew Outdoor Mix Review

October 19th, 2013 | By

These were easy to grow plants, I grew them outside in Smartpots. Not massive yields but they were planted late in the year. I should point out that I have a high tolerance of cannabis especially at this time of year so your experience of this strain may differ hugely from mine.

Now, I realise what the point of a high CBD low THC is – it is not about getting high. The point is to make a medically effective strain for people so they can get relief and still go about their day. I would say that this strain will do that – I tore into some uncured buds this morning just after breakfast then again and again I smoked some more just to be sure.

I can say that I felt more relaxed, but not ‘stoned’ as such – so this stuff seems to be working as advertised. Pretty much.

After the third spliff I went out to do the shopping with absolutely no stoned issues that I might normally come across. It felt nice. Driving was no problem.

If I had no weed, and only had this weed as an option, then by god I would smoke it. It reminds me a little of the effect that I have had in the past from making hot chocolate milkshakes using used vape material.  Used vape material is generally low in THC and can contain CBD. A relaxed feeling, centred and calm but not off your head, basically. That’s how is was for me anyway. Probably not something I would seek out apart from in special circumstances – but I think it could be a great strain for people who only want the medical effects of the plant, which is the intention. It released some amazing citrus smells during growth. We will be making some oil from it.

Update to CBD Crew Outdoor Mix Review

It just goes to show, one person’s medicine can be another’s nightmare.

We did make some oil for a friend using the high CBD weed and the Swiss pharmacist’s Olive Oil method.

Instead of putting a jar in boiling water, we just use a slow cooker allowing the mixture to heat for 2 hours. This has the same effect and is safer.

It works really well.

Not having made oil this way before I was unsure of what dosage to recommend to our friend. I had smoked the weed and as above reported that the effects weren’t huge for me at all – in fact they were really negligible. I do smoke a lot however.

This stuff is 5% THC so having sampled it, I suggested my friend try starting with two tablespoons of the oil. My logic was that the oil was not concentrated (like oil made using the Rick Simpson method) so you would need to take more for it to do its’ work.  And of course the low THC content compared to most strains we are smoking these days – many of which are 15-20% THC or even more.

So my friend had quite an interesting night and ended up tripping her face off.

I felt awful when I heard about this, however. This lady is not a complete stranger to the hallucinogens. She was able to handle it but it just shows what can be achieved with a slow cooker, some weed and olive oil.
