Let’s talk CBD. More specifically, let’s talk about high CBD strains of craft hemp flower plants.
Many people turn to cannabis as an alternative to traditionally prescribed medications. Why? Simply because CBD offers a large variety of health and mental health benefits, of which can help relieve and reduce symptoms of various chronic conditions. It also serves as a great sleeping aid and general relaxer—both medicinally and recreationally.
The benefits of High CBD Strains include, but aren’t limited to:
Reduced anxiety and depression
Eased chronic pain
Reduced PTSD symptoms
Relief from select epileptic symptoms
Reduced cravings caused by nicotine, opiate, and other addictive substances
Keep in mind, though, that some of these benefits differ slightly depending on strain and person.
The downside of CBD? In order to utilize its benefits, one had to also consume amounts of THC, AKA the chemical element within cannabis which makes the user high. Although high CBD strains of cannabis existed, very few offered low THC concentrations. For those who wanted the medicinal benefits and relaxing properties of CBD without getting high, it was virtually impossible.
At least, that used to be the case. But not anymore. Gone are the days of having to smoke traditional marijuana in order to utilize CBD. As of today, there are hundreds of companies (such as Dreamland Organics) which specialize in creating non THC cannabis plants called craft hemp flowers.
Craft hemp flower is specifically bred and grown to contain high amounts of CBD and no amounts of THC—or at least as little as physically possible, too little to get you stoned.
Most craft hemp flower is also sold online on e-commerce sites. But this unfortunately comes at a price, as most CBD flowers sold online are non organic, mass produced, and low quality.
With that said, there are still a few high-quality and high CBD strains on the market, despite being hard to find.
In order to make your craft hemp flower search a tad bit easier, we at DLO have created a list of our top 3 favorite high CBD strains available online. These strains are entirely organic, contain almost no THC, and are bred and grown to be especially flavorful and CBD potent.

Craft Hemp Flower vs. Traditional Cannabis
Before we share with you our list of highest CBD strains, let’s differentiate between craft hemp flowers and traditional cannabis.
As mentioned, craft hemp flower is just cannabis plants specially bred to be THC free and instead prioritize CBD. However, this is just a general definition of craft hemp flower. The legal definition is a bit more complicated.
As of 2018, congress reclassified the legal definition of craft hemp flower. Basically, any hemp flower which contains less than .3% THC is no longer considered cannabis by legal definition. This means that unlike traditional cannabis, craft hemp flowers are legal on a federal level.
NOTE: Although CBD flower is legal federally, some states have their own laws and regulations which may differ from the 2018 Federal Farm bill. Always check your state legislature before buying CBD flowers online to make sure you do everything by the book.
Although craft hemp flower may contain trace amounts of THC, the concentration is so low that you shouldn’t feel high or intoxicated after smoking CBD flower. If you do, then chances are that the company you bought the flower from may have miscalculated their THC content or simply lied about it. In that case, consider a more reputable company.
Also, don’t confuse craft hemp flower with industrial hemp flowers. Whereas craft hemp flower is supposed to be a smokable plant similar to traditional cannabis, industrial hemp is used in making commercial products such as paper, rope, clothing, insulation, etc.
What Makes a Good Craft Hemp Flower?
We at DLO have been growing craft hemp flowers for over 10 years. As such, we know a thing or two about growing quality CBD.
In our professional opinion, a good craft hemp flower has three basic qualities:
Organically grown: CBD flowers should always be grown without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or synthetic additives. At DLO, we grow our craft hemp flowers using only natural fertilizers and growing methods—outside and in living soil.
Terpene rich: What are terpenes? Terpenes are the chemical compounds within cannabis and CBD flowers which gives them their taste, effects, and scent. Together they often subtly separate the good CBD flowers from the great ones.
High CBD: Strains highly concentrated in CBD give you more bang for your buck. The more CBD in a strain, the more potent its medicinal effects and relaxing qualities.
Top 3 Best High CBD Strains Available Online
Belladonna is our latest craft hemp flower exclusive to DLO. It is also an extremely high CBD strain at 16%.
This craft hemp flower is a hybrid of our two most popular flowers: Kimbo Kush and Green Dream. As such, Belladonna is a hybrid but indica dominant high CBD strain that’s perfect for relaxation and anxiety relief in particular.
Need a good evening relaxer? Then Belladonna is just right for you. It also proves to be a fantastic sleeping aid; smoke a bowl before bed and find yourself floating into sleep.
However, Belladonna can also be smoked throughout the day. But if you do, we recommend pairing it with a light stimulant like coffee or caffeinated tea or soda in order to mellow out the high CBD concentration and indica properties.
The terpene profile consists of exotic fruity and earthy flavors with skunky overtones. The taste, though, is subtle and not overpowering. In our opinion, this is one of the best-tasting high CBD strains we’ve introduced yet.
A parent strain to Belladonna, Kimbo Kush is our most potent craft hemp flower. At 17% CBD concentration, this indica dominant high CBD strain can put you to sleep faster than its namesake—the late MMA fighter Kimbo Slice.
Kimbo Kush is a powerful sleeping aid, anxiety reliever, and a great alternative treatment to chronic pain. It has some of the highest concentrations of CBD on the market. Combine that with its indica properties and it makes for a great evening smoke session after a long day at work.
Similarly to Belladonna, we recommend using caffeinated beverages if you intend to smoke Kimbo Kush during the day. Coincidentally—since it has notes of coffee and vanilla—this CBD flower pairs excellently with french vanilla coffee or affogato. It also has gassy overtones, which sweets like chocolate can help level out.
This is definitely our most potent craft hemp flower. As such, if you’re looking for a truly high CBD strain, then this one is your match made in heaven.

Dreamland Blend CBD Pre Roll
Although this pre roll isn’t exclusively its own strain, we include it on this list because of its extreme CBD potency.
Dreamland Blend contains a mixture of all of our high CBD strains. It is also infused with our exclusive CBD kief—adding to its potency, entourage effect, and terpenes. We like to think of this CBD flower joint as our “terpene fruit punch,” since it contains so many different terpenes, strains, and cannabinoids which truly makes it unique.
All of our pre rolls come in ultra-thin, organic hemp paper and include a small filter. This makes for a smooth and chill smoke that you can enjoy even at the most inconvenient times. On top of that, CBD pre rolls are also great for anxiety due to their ease of use and ability to smoke on the go.
Final Thoughts On High CBD Strains
With all the CBD companies selling craft hemp flowers online, it’s difficult to find ones that offer wholly organic, terpene rich CBD flowers. It can be equally as difficult to find companies which offer high CBD strains at a reasonable price.
That’s why we at DLO are committed to selling only high quality craft hemp flowers that are both organic and affordable. We don’t use distributors. Thus, by selling directly to the consumer we can offer both quality and affordability.
