When it comes to the world of cannabis, people often categorize their experience based on strain types: indica, sativa, or hybrid. However, recent scientific discoveries a suggest that the ratio between THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) is far more crucial in determining the overall cannabis experience.
The most accurate predictor of a cannabis product's effects is the ratio between THC and CBD it contains. THC is the psychoactive compound responsible for the "high" associated with cannabis, while CBD is known for its therapeutic and medicinal benefits. The balance between these two compounds however, is where the real impact on your experience lies.
THC-only products can be a bit much.
High THC, low or no CBD products can lead to a very intense high. However, many users report that they also cause anxiety, paranoia, social awkwardness and other adverse effects, especially if you have a low to moderate tolerance.
Balanced THC/CBD Products:
A ratio product that is high in CBD offers a more balanced and manageable experience. It reduces anxiety, and offer relaxation without the usual side effects that THC-only products often come with.
The THC also “boosts” the usually non-psychoactive CBD so that you feel a THC and CBD high.
The beauty of focusing on the THC to CBD ratio is that it allows individuals to tailor their cannabis experience to their specific needs and preferences. Rather than relying solely on strain names or indica/sativa labels.
In edible cannabis products, such as cannabis gummies or cannabis beverages, the ratio can be controlled down to the milligram which makes them ideal for controlling the ratio.
While the indica, sativa, and hybrid classification system has been the go-to guide for cannabis consumers, it is increasingly clear that the ratio between THC and CBD is a more reliable indicator of what to expect from your cannabis experience.
Whether you're an experienced cannabis user or not, paying attention to the THC to CBD ratio empowers you to make informed choices and enjoy the benefits of cannabis more responsibly and effectively.
Studies also show that using ratio-products not only eliminates short term side effects of use, but that they negate long term side effects as well.
