Best CBD bud in Canada

Given
medicinal
cannabis’s
17-year
head
start
on
legalization,
perhaps
it’s
not
surprising
that
Leafly
readers,
when
it
comes
to
choosing
their
favourite
CBD
flowers,
went
with
some
strains
that
pre-date
the
legal
recreational
market.

Most
of
the
favourites
chosen
carried
next
to
no
intoxicating
effects,
with
THC
counts
often
registering
under
1%.

Cannatonic

variants
were
also
clear
favourites,
including
Leafly
readers’
top
choice.
