8 Cannabis Strains For a Mild High

Published on

Many people that are curious about using cannabis also worry about getting too high. However, there are many ways to consume cannabis with mild psychoactive affects.

Here are eight strains that won’t get you too high:

1. Harlequin

The Harlequin strain usually contains a 5:2 CBD to THC ratio, meaning you’ll get all of the relaxing and uplifting qualities of cannabis without the powerful high. It also has an earthy taste that also has a hint of citrus for a nice balanced flavor.

2. Sour Tsunami

Sour Tsunami’s another strain that usually clocks in at around 10 or 11 percent CBD with under 10 percent THC. The strain is known for producing nice, relaxed feelings as well as giving a little bit of an energy boost.

3. Blue Dream

Blue Dream is one of the most popular marijuana strains around, and for good reason. While the strain has a decent THC content, it’s not super potent like some others. So it’ll get you a good high whether you’re a beginner or veteran, but you won’t get too high for your own good.

4. Cannatonic

As the name suggests, the Cannatonic strain will make you super-relaxed to the point you won’t even want to get off your couch. On top of that, it’s a high CBD, low THC strain, so you won’t completely alter your mental status while using it.


ACDC is another high CBD, low THC strain. But unlike Cannatonic, ACDC will boost your focus and sociability, so it’s a strain that’s meant for people who are going to be out and about.

6. Pennywise

No, Pennywise will not terrify you and send you into a horrific tailspin. This train generally contains a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio, so it’s not going to get you super high. It’s also known for its unique flavor that combines earthiness with peppery notes as well as a little bit of citrus.

7. Harle-Tsu

Harle-Tsu is actually a hybrid of two other strains we’ve mentioned on this list: Harlequin and Sour Tsunami. So considering it’s a combination of them both, you know it’s going to be really good at giving you the effects of marijuana without the powerful high.

8. Aliens on Moonshine

Half the fun of choosing a marijuana strain is the name, and you’d be hard-pressed to find one better than Aliens on Moonshine. This strain also has a unique taste of citrus, sage and skunkiness. It’s also a high CBD strain, so you’ll feel those nice relaxing effects without the high.
