ACDC, short for “Alternative Cannabinoid Dietary Cannabis” is an evenly balanced 50/50 hybrid that was created in 2011 by Dr. William Courtney from a Cannatonic phenotype. Dr. William Courtney, a member of the American Academy of Cannabinoid Medicine acquired the Cannatonic seeds from her original breeder at Resin Seeds whilst searching for new genetics in Barcelona, Spain. This award-winning strain has an impressive 20:1 CBD to THC ratio and was developed for medical use, specifically for juicing cannabis leaves as a dietary supplement.
