For those who are new to cannabis we suggest finding a product that is a little lower in THC. Sometimes it is best to start off with products that have a good balance of CBD to THC to be sure that it’s not an overwhelming experience. CBD also has the added benefit of typically being excellent for pain and relaxation.
An item with a good balance of CBD to THC is usually known to be a good place to start for sleep aid. Some people report that products with only THC work better with their systems, but if you are new to cannabis, it may be the case that you would prefer products that contain a mixture of CBD and THC.
Customers have reported that a product with a good balance of CBD to THC is most effective for treating chronic pain.
Many cannabis users report that CBD is an excellent anxiety reliever but there is limited scientific information about the effects of this compound. Sometimes individuals report that THC products make them more anxious and that products containing CBD have less anxiety provoking effects. Cannabis products affect everyone differently and starting with a low dose in a safe environment to see how these compounds affect you is a good idea before taking a larger dose.
Many individuals report that products that are high in CBD and low in THC are helpful for pain relief with a less intense psychoactive effect than high THC products. Topicals like lotions and salves can also be a great option, even when they include THC, users do not typically report psychoactive effects.
THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is the psychoactive component of cannabis that is responsible for its euphoria, pain relieving aspects, among other benefits. CBD or cannabidiol is a non-psychoactive component of cannabis that can be excellent for pain relief and anxiety reduction. Both come from the same part of the cannabis plant, but they attach to different receptors in our bodies accounting for the different effects.
While everyone is different and responds to cannabis uniquely, you may want to try a 1:1 CBD to THC product as they are very popular with customers that use cannabis for pain relief.
