The effects of CBD strains are similar to the effects produced by consuming CBD oils and products, only acting faster due to the way in which the compound is ingested. These strains tend to provide relief from pain, inflammation, anxiety and even seizures. When vaped or smoked, these strains produce positive highs, leaving consumers with a clear head. Unlike THC dominant strains, CBD strains are not associated with side effects, such as anxiety, dizziness, increased heart rate and nervousness.
Even if you’re someone who’s not looking for the medicinal effects of CBD, these types of strains can be a good fit if you’ve had negative experiences with THC or are simply looking to try something new.
Like THC, there are many factors that influence the outcome of your CBD high. It remains important to speak to your budtender about the strain you’re thinking of buying and the effects you’re looking for. It’s also key to smoke or vape carefully, giving your body the chance to respond to the strain before you accidentally consume too much of it and experience a bad high.
