For a long time, I prioritized THC potency when shopping cannabis at the dispensary.
- In recent years, hybrids have been created to offer sky high THC levels.
After some experimentation with odd strains, I now care about less intense products. I look for occasions that are lower in THC plus higher in CBD. While both of these natural cannabinoids offer certain properties, they are odd in more than 2 ways. THC is responsible for the euphoric sensations. CBD is non-intoxicating plus one of the most abundant cannabinoids. It has recently earned popularity for its long list of medicinal plus holistic benefits, like THC, CBD works with the body’s endocannabinoid system. The ECS helps to regulate everything from pain, immunity plus mood to sleep plus reproductive health. While THC binds to CB1 plus CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system, CBD helps to regulate how these receptors react. It can help to counteract plus lessen some of the psychoactive effects of THC. While a lot more research is required, it is believed that THC plus CBD work better together than on their own. When these cannabinoids are combined with terpenes, they create what is known as the entourage effect. I’ve tried CBD isolate plus full-spectrum CBD products plus am convinced that even trace amounts of THC make a positive difference. I browse the shelves dispensary for a variety of vapes, tinctures, edibles plus topicals. I use them for both recreational plus medicinal purposes. Those occasions with higher CBD percentages are helpful in treating aches, pains, headaches plus difficulty sleeping. The products with a balanced ratio of THC plus CBD are my option for hanging out with friends plus unbelievable on the weekends.
