The Effects Of Smoking Low-THC, High-CBD Cannabis

 

For decades, growers have been focused on producing cannabis strains with the highest THC content possible to have a maximum high. High-THC means you’re getting baked, whether sativa, indica or a mix of the two. Now, however, we know CBD can be therapeutic, healing parts of the plant and growers are focusing on high-CBD cannabis that places THC in the backseat.  What are the effects of smoking low-THC, high-CBD cannabis? And what are the benefits?

While CBD doesn’t get the patient high, it does provide a sense of well being and calm. CBD from hemp is legal across the US, while CBD from cannabis is only legal in states that allow for medical and recreational usage. What about a combination?

For one thing, there will be a change in mood, just not a drastic one that either has you talking a mile a minute or locked to the couch. The feeling is cerebral and one of well being. The low-THC cannabis makes you feel comfortable in your own skin and has the healing benefits of whole plant medication.

Data shows CBD can help you quit smoking cigarettes, manage your diabetes, acne, Crohn’s, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, insomnia and more. But there must be more research to better understand the benefits and how combination can enhance medical treatments.

So consuming low-THC, high-CBD bud is a little like smoking with the three bears. The high THC strain gets you really high, while the hemp CBD strain doesn’t get you high at all. The strain that has a little THC and a lot of CBD? It’s just right to have you feeling on cloud nine without altering your state to an extreme.

And beyond being “better than nothing,” the high you get added to the relief you feel equal an experience that leaves a lasting impression and will likely have you going back to the bong. It’s nearly impossible to get “too high” on low-THC cannabis, but you are able to find the bliss level.

So as growers expand their lines to include these new forms of medicinal marijuana, they are bound to continue improving upon the genetics, coaxing all the more CBD out and finding the most beneficial cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids to create the finest low-THC, high-CBD cannabis out there. Craft cannabis is definitely the new name of the game and this cannabinoid combo fits right in.
