Candida (CD1)

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.

This CBD queen can be grown either indoors, where it needs around 9 weeks of bloom, or outdoors, where it'll be ready to harvest by October. Results are always the same, top quality medical buds!

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.

I attempted to order these seeds and was warned you don’t send to Australia. Why?

Hi Karen,

Well, you have pretty strict laws with regard to importing seeds from foreign places, so it is not possible for us to ship them. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello Rinavan, despite its name this strain is not necessarily advised for candidiasis, the meaning was about "bright light" in latin. Cordially

Hello, my underactive thyroid is causing me severe problems. I need some medicine to replace the thyroid, to help me wean off it, and to restore its natural functions. I was supposedly diagnosed aged 9 for a condition which didn't exist. Appropriate clinical testing wasn't done. It wasn't referred to a specialist and the thyroid wasn't given appropriate herbs treatment at a big hospital. I went from playing 11 hours a day good football skills running champion and cricket to complete shutdown of immune system within 3 months of medication trial. Been getting worse Eva since. 6 admissions into mental hospital, one suicide attempt and today I'm at a point where I wanna close my eyes and go home, back home above. Can't take much more if I'm honest in the system, and I can't read write study sleep walk retain info much or do sports. I need a strain. If I can get anything that may help, I'd like to grow it at home, or somewhere safe with easy to use methods, like a plant pot or back garden. Any decent flavour strain with a happiness kick is a bonus. I've been recommended candida and Orinoco? Thank you

Hi Hasan,

Man, we're so sorry for what happened to you, can only send you all our best vibes!!!

I'd suggest Candida, Dinamed CBD, CBD Therapy or Solodiol Clásica, they all have large amounts of CBD.

If you also want to try some strain with a more balanced THC:CBD ratio, I'd recommend Spicy CBD or Hiydrow.

Hope that'll help, all our best wishes!!

Hi, Why are these plants growing about half as quickly as my seeds from an unknown source? Also, many of the younger leaves started out completely discoloured, although thr newest ones are fine. Seems like I got a batch of bad genetics, is there any way that you can make this up to me please ?
