Cannabis users have much more to smile about in recent years as marijuana decriminalisation increases globally. This has led to an outpour of information on both recreational and medical marijuana. Still, there are some strains that are more known than others, especially those with high THC content. Well, it is certainly the case in countries like Jamaica where the herb is used as a sacrament in the Rastafari community.

However, there are strains that are not typically used for recreational or even spiritual purposes. These strains include the ACDC strain, which we will review in this article.

ACDC Genetics

A phenotype of the marijuana strain Cannatonic, ACDC is a low THC, high CBD strain of Sativa dominance. It’s THC to CBD content is a remarkable 1:20, making it perfect for users, especially potential users, who want to profit from the amazing benefits of marijuana without having to deal with the high THC strains give. In fact, the THC content in this cannabis strain is so low that it is impossible to experience a high from smoking it or from any other method of consumption.

Its bud has a green, moss-like appearance with orange streaks. While the CBD or cannbidiol component of marijuana does not create psychotic effects, it does have many physical and even psychological benefits.

Medical and Psychological Effects

As ACDC kush is Sativa dominant or sometimes averaging at 50/50 in its Sativa-Indica ratio, it creates many positive psychological effects such as increasing focus, energy, self-motivation, and happiness. ACDC has the potential to alleviate symptoms associated with the following conditions:

  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Chronic Pain
  • Nerve pain
  • Muscle spasms
  • Inflammation
  • Epilepsy
  • Cancer
  • Seizures

Today’s fast paced environment is making us more stressed. It is nice to be able to go home and smoke or vape some ACDC pot. It is a better alternative to drinking or hard drugs.

Because of how laser focus users tend to get when they have ACDC and how energetic they get, they can use it to forget the mundane responsibilities of their job (if they in fact find their job to be mundane) and get creative by doing something they love, whether it be crafty, literary or otherwise.

Creative writers, for example, can benefit from this strain as it can help them to concentrate on their plots and characters and actually start writing.


Depression is a terrible condition many persons face across the world. Some receive traditional pharmaceutical treatment like Prozac. However, there can be many adverse side effects for some of these medications. By using ACDC and strains like it instead, you don’t have to experience any of these negative side effects.

Pain & Inflammation

Anyone who suffers from chronic pain such as lower back pain know just how unbearable the pain can get. The high CBD content make ACDC perfect at reducing pain, inflammation and other negative effects. One Internet user, SmSilver27, on a marijuana review site described ACDC as a “miracle strain”.

“I actually ingest through making teas, and butter. Your body fully absorbs the cbd’s when your liver processes it through indigestion, and once it happens, man!!! My knees, hips, and lower back immediately improve.”

Growing ACDC

Growing ACDC will take a little more effort than some other strains. It requires fertilization such as calcium and magnesium. It also requires support for its stalk while it grows. Because of the effort that is required to successfully grow this strain of marijuana it is not recommended for first time growers, whether you are growing it indoors or outdoors. However, if you are okay with the trial and failure method of growing marijuana, then you should go ahead while keeping the above guide in mind.

When growing, the ACDC buds are bushy with fine, feather-like leaves that can grow up to four feet in height. The leaves sometimes turn purple and the nugs are usually no bigger than a thumb.

Buying ACDC weed

You can get ACDC weed for $18 per gram at The Novel tree or $17 at The Vault. There are other dispensaries both brick and mortar and online that sell the ACDC strain at comparable prices. You can get ACDC cannabis seeds for $40 for a 6 seed pack at Medicinal Organic Nursery. A quick Google search will provide more info on where to purchase this strain.
