Bediol is an interesting strain of cannabis which is purely Sativa in nature. This plant, first grown in 2007, is one of the first strains to be grown specifically for its high CBD count. Bediol is one of five proprietary strains grown by Bedrocan, a cannabis company based in the Netherlands devoted to the science behind cannabis and its medical applications. Bedrocan’s mission is to bridge the gap between consumer and cannabis cultivation by ensuring strict quality control and scientific testing that legitimizes cannabis as a proper medicine. Bediol was specifically engineered for a near 1:1 THC:CBD ratio in a time when almost no one had thought of such a thing. Bediol’s genetics remain a mystery, as Bedrocan does not disclose the process of developing the strain. This daytime strain is often prescribed and suggested for patients that would benefit from CBD that are also sensitive to THC.
The buds of this strain, if purchased from Bedrocan itself, is often sold as the entire flower off the plant, which may require some trimming. However, if you find it in nug form, you can expect to buy fluffy almost-circular nugs of mint green chronic. They are often enveloped by bright, fuzzy orange pistils and a hearty coating of translucent crystal trichomes. The aroma produced by this flower is quite pleasant as it contains sweet citrus with hints of pine and herbs. Like the aroma, the flavor when consuming this bud is like fresh pine with a kick of sweet and sour citrus to give a little oomph to the flavor.
The high from this strain, due to its 1:1 THC:CBD ratio, is quite mellow in nature and sure to never overwhelm even first time consumers. The effects from this bud, despite its Sativa nature, are often classified as pain relieving as opposed to heady. Any mental hang ups or negative thoughts are erased almost immediately after taking a few hits of this flower, as the high prepares you for a positive day. Although the strain has no Indica genetics, the high contains effects that are usually indicative of an Indica high. You might find yourself getting a little sleepy, but the creative energy and focus brought on by this strain should be enough to keep you from falling asleep as soon as you start toking. Likewise, you should prepare yourself a snack as this strain has reportedly given some a strong case of the munchies. Bediol has been consumed by countless cannabis patients looking to alleviate these and other symptoms such as arthritis and depression.
