If this strain brings to mind images of nuclear missiles, it’s no accident. Though THC levels are typically low, less than 6%, Trident delivers a massive dose of CBD, 12%, making it an ideal choice for treating childhood epilepsy and other conditions that respond to CBD. It’s a near-even sativa-dominant hybrid, though the exact numbers are unclear. But they’re mostly beside the point; Trident is prized for its medical effects rather than its high, which is subtle at most. Yet the THC helps ease pain and other physical symptoms without clouding the mind. This strain is best used to treat severe seizure disorders, chronic pain, and anxiety, though it can also be helpful with patients who experience nausea. Some negative effects are reported, including dry eyes and anxiety, but they appear to be limited. Trident has a pungent pine aroma and an earthy flavor. The bud has a bright green appearance with flecks of gold throughout. Like most strains that are bred for their CBD content, Trident is relatively hard to find. It’s much more common in legal markets in the American West, but even in those places it remains rare.
