AC/DC is not a strain in its own right, but rather a phenotype of the Cannatonic strain bred by Resin Seeds. When grown out, Cannatonic plants exhibit a wide variation in THC and CBD levels. AC/DC is the name given to the Cannatonic phenotype whose genetic expression shows very high levels of CBD (around 16-22%) and correspondingly low THC levels. This quality allows for little to no psychoactivity and, like Charlotte’s Web, makes AC/DC a much sought-after strain for children suffering from epilepsy, cancer patients, and those needing relief without the high associated with THC.

  • Indoor flowering time: 63-70 days - Resin Seeds
  • Indoor yield: 500 g/m2
  • Outdoor yield: 250-400 g/plant
  • Harvest time: (Outdoor/Greenhouse) October

Resistant to many pests, Cannatonic (AC/DC) has reportedly had some issues with molds and mildews, meaning it should probably be kept in a controlled environment or carefully watched. Resin Seeds keeps some very in depth growing information on their website for the strain when grown indoors. They recommend vegetating for a week, using Bio Vega and Bio Rhizotonic. Clones may need an eye kept on them to ensure the development of a strong root system. After the vegetative period comes a nine week flowering period, during the last of which Resin Seeds advises lowering the hours of light to ten from twelve. Cannatonic plants may yield up to 500 grams per square meter indoors. Outside in October, these plants may be harvested for 250 to 400 grams per plant.

History

In 2011 came reports —validated by lab tests— of plants containing twenty times more CBD than THC. The unique find was termed “ACDC” by those who possessed isolated female plants. This ACDC strain, also known as C-6, consistently exhibited 16-20% CBD and 0.5-1% THC by weight.  This “ACDC” cultivar was later identified as a variant of Cannatonic, a strain distributed by Resin Seed Co. of Spain then in its second generation of breeding development.

As we know, cannabidiol (CBD) has come to the forefront in recent years, and a number of cultivators have set out to develop CBD-rich strains, like Sour Tsunami and Ghost Rider, and Harlequin. Bred by Resin Seeds, the Cannatonic strain certainly helped pave the way for this trend, becoming one of the first strains recorded with a 1:1 ratio of CBD:THC. With that said, just 50 percent of Cannatonic seeds will develop into CBD-rich plants. Understandably, this can cause confusion for medical cannabis patients. The strain’s cannabinoid profile tends to vary greatly – I’ve seen test results of Cannatonic with CBD:THC ratios ranging everywhere from 20:1 to 1:20. With this in mind, a phenotype of the Cannatonic strain with a 22:1 CBD:THC ratio has adopted the nickname “AC/DC.” It has been made available in the form of clones and is currently making it’s way throughout California. Being a CBD-rich strain, the AC/DC phenotype of the Cannatonic strain is often sought out for its ability to deliver relief without psychoactive side effects. Because of this, it is unlikely to garner much interest from the adult-use market. Nonetheless, a number of medical marijuana patients seek out clones of the AC/DC strain to add to their garden. It’s high concentration of cannabidiol (CBD) makes the AC/DC strain ideal for anxiety and pain. Furthermore, cannabis oil from the AC/DC phenotype and juicing its leaves have each shown promise in preventing the spread of cancer according to anecdotal reports. Consider this strain if suffering from epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, or the negative effects of chemotherapy.

ACDC has a fresh pine scent and the flowers have lots of sticky resin glands (trichomes). It is especially beneficial for cancer, shrinking tumors, inflammation, pain, and associated aliments. Because it has a very low THC value, it is good for people that have issues with anxiety, nerve tremors and paranoia. We have had great success with epilepsy, especially in children, showing immediate results. ACDC is very close to a strain called “Charlotte’s Web” used for epilepsy. The high CBD, low THC also gives it anti-psychotic properties. It is very good for people that need to work, drive and function in the world, while providing great medicinal effects.
