This in-house cross by Colorado Breeders Depot encapsulates all that high quality, high CBD hemp flower should be— stable genetics, reliable potency, and a look that could be mistaken for any top-tier marijuana being grown today.
Perfect for the mid-day bump, these snowy green premium hemp buds should be the introduction to anyone curious about consuming hemp flower. Not overwhelmingly strong, CBD Silver is the smokable CBD flower pick-me-up that those fighting an afternoon slump should turn to.
History & Genetics
Lineage: Purple Urkle (Harley Tsu x Purple Mendocino) x Aroma Funk
CBD Silver is the newest strain developed through the Colorado Breeders Depot’s genetics program. Discovered through crossing the heavy indica Purple Urkle with a bright green Aroma Funk, this hemp flower strain is truly the best of both worlds. Discovered initially through experimentation, it took a while to unlock the best parts of each parent strain. Finally, the tie-dyed purple and green coloring along with the heavily frosted trichomes riddling every part of the cola.
Look & Smell of CBD Silver
While the flower itself is a blend of purple and green, its name comes from the fact that buds are so frosted in trichomes that it appears silvery in direct light. The shimmer of resin-caked flower leaves little to be desired. The unique purple and green that is derived from genetics is mostly randomized— some of the cured hemp buds are totally green, and others imbue a dark purple undertone throughout the colas.
Thick and ever-present are the fiery red hairs that are also covered in a snowy, argent layer of trichomes. Snapping a piece off results in a small cloud off resiny dust covering your fingers and rolling tray. This is the strain for anyone with a kief box looking to collect tons of CBD kief at home because CBD Silver is plentiful
Potency & Effects of CBD Silver
The potency of CBD Silver is noticeable just by looking and smelling a freshly harvested bud, and upon testing our suspicions were confirmed that this strain is a powerhouse. While this is not our highest testing cannabinoid content, once you start smoking this sticky strain you’ll be certain it tested higher. Meshing the highly sedating Purple Urkle with the cool pep that a few puffs of Aroma Funk provides, CBD Silver is best consumed around mid-day and later. Yielding less than 1% CBG, the steep CBD content stands out and immediately takes effect by brightening a bad mood and taking any aches down a few notches. CBD Silver won’t knock users out or keep them on the couch but instead will mold to their activities, so if you’re active then it’ll keep you active and if you’re chilling, well, it’ll reinforce the chill expertly.
The taste is something like a peppery sweet clove coupled with a familiar cannabis kush that is so enjoyable you may just want to keep smoking. Smoking it is extremely smooth on both the inhale and exhale. Cleanly cured to prevent any back of the throat harshness, it’s easy to roll up a joint and puff on it until it’s gone. The warmth that floods the endocannabinoid system is immediate, causing consumers to lean back in their chair and take a few deep breaths while the CBD relieves minor pains, cramps and queasiness. CBD Silver is great for those undergoing chemotherapy or other nausea-inducing illnesses and treatments and pairs great with most meals. The taste itself is so distinct and delicious that users may consider buying in bulk and infusing meals with CBD butter or oils made at home.
CBD Silver’s Therapeutic Benefits
Silvery with trichomes, CBD Silver is chock full of cannabinoids that can have many varied effects on those who smoke hemp nugs. Mildly uplifting, this strain works great for providing motivation and focus for those looking for task completion or a second wind of their day. Physically, there’s enough CBD in these buds to make menstrual cramps potentially more tolerable, as well as soothing inflamed joints. For those suffering arthritic conditions, CBD Silver may help dampen the inflammation of joints or muscular injuries. Even smoking it after a workout can lessen the muscle tearing pain that takes the form of post-exercise soreness.
