Candida is the flagship strain of Medical Marijuana Genetics, a feminized strain with very high CBD content and thus ideal for treating a large number of medical conditions, including ADHD, anorexia, autism, depression, epilepsy and many others.
This strain was created in tribute to the mpther - already deceased - of the founder of this seed company, and the name means "bright light" in Latin. A ray of light for patients suffering from pains and chronic diseases, as well as muscle injuries.
This awesome Indica/Sativa hybrid was created by crossing two high CBD strains, ACDC and Harlequin. The offspring of this cross has very low THC content so it doesn't get you high, meaning this plant can be used throughout the day without a problem, you'll be able to perform your daily activities while you're treating your condition.
Candida, High CBD cannabis strain
Candida can contain from 10 to 20% CBD, while THC content is never above 1%. As usually happens, CBD content depends on phenotypes.
The Sativa phenotype, with longer internodal spacing, reaches higher CBD content than the Indica phenotype, although the latter easily reaches 10% CBD.
This strain's chemotype is stable, with all plants contain high amounts of CBD, although it's recommended to select the most suitable phenotype for each user as a mother plant to keep to provide clones for future cultivation.
Yields are average to high, depending on phenotype, growing conditions and techniques. Indoors, it can yield up to 450g per m2, a bit more for the Indica pheno, which can reach 550g per m2 with the SOG technique.
Organoleptically, its flavor clearly reminds of citric fruits, especially lemon, with sweet and candy notes.
