Say what you will about the prohibitionist crowd, their claims about the potency of today's cannabis carry some truth. Nowadays, strains can contain upwards of 25 percent THC, and that's too much for the brain to handle for some of our readers. Many have been asking where they can find high-CBD strains.

Already popular among medical patients for their effective treatment of inflammation, pain and insomnia, CBD strains are becoming more popular with recreational tokers thanks to their manageable, therapeutic highs and lack of paranoid side effects. Strain loyalty can be dangerous, though, especially with CBD varieties. Here are seven strains high in CBD that are currently available around town, and where to find them.
