CBD Crew was formed in the summer of 2009 by Shantibaba (Mr Nice Seeds), and Jaime (Resin Seeds) who experimented with bringing the high CBD content of Cannatonic to some of the legendary old school genetics of the Mr Nice Seed Bank. The CBD Crew’s target was to achieve an optimum ratio of 1:1 THC:CBD, which they have now done with all the strains they offer.
The reason for focussing breeding efforts on Cannabidiol or CBD (one of the more important cannabinoids found in cannabis) is due to its beneficial properties. Medically it has been shown to reduce convulsion, inflammation, anxiety, and nausea, as well as inhibit cancer cell growth. Recent studies have also highlighted the need for further research into CBD as a treatment for schizophrenia. The CBD Crew team are supported by many friends who include the celebrated author Jorge Cervantes and author, Howard Marks (aka Mr Nice) . They are also closely allied with ProjectCBD.org, a California-based educational site.
This is the first cannabis seed company to focus on CBD. Seed buyers are warned to avoid cheap imitations who have not tested cannabinoid levels properly, and who make unfounded claims.
