I like recreational cannabis & the psychoactive effects, however i find that a few hits from a pipe, a couple of gummies or a few drops of a tincture under the tongue can elevate my mood, inspire creativity & help me to relax at the end of a long morning; However, I don’t consistently focus on getting high, there are times when the mental & physical therapeutic benefits are my goal.
It has taken some trial & error to figure out my optimal doses of THC & CBD. I want to manage the psychoactive properties & benefit from a natural remedy. I’ve learn that the combination of THC & CBD increases the rewards of each, however cBD works to hinder THC’s ability to bind to CB1 receptors & lessens the euphoric effects. They each offer odd pharmacological properties yet bogh offer anti-inflammatory & analgesic effects. I am blessed to have access to nearby cannabis dispensaries & knowlegeable budtenders. I’ve gotten helpful recommendations for dried flower, topicals, concentrates & edibles with a broad range of THC-to-CBD ratios. There are wide varieties of indicas, sativas & hybrids that include more than 2 cannabinoids. They can be THE-dominant, CBD-dominant or offer an equal ratio of the 2. Through experimentation, I’ve discovered that CBD-dominant hybrids work best for treating painful muscles, stiff joints, swelling in my fingers & migraines. I adore indicas with higher THC levels for mellowing out & getting a fine evening’s sleep. If I am looking to be more productive, boost energy & like a better mood, I shop sativas & prioritize THC percentages.
