Understanding the Cannabinoid Synergies Between THC:CBD
Understanding your strains THC:CBD ratio is important when treating patients for different applications. The Spott uses state of the art equipment when it comes to identifying the THC:CBD ratios at our cannabis testing facility. (Sample results below)
Medical marijuana is often characterized by higher levels of CBD and lower levels of THC. The therapeutic CBD is desirable for medicinal effect but the psychoactive THC may be unnecessary and undesirable for some patients. This THC/CBD ratio information is of primary importance to the medical personnel prescribing cannabis for medicinal purposes. Some medicinal effects of cannabis could include reduced symptoms such as nausea, seizures, eye pressure and pain.
For recreational marijuana, the psychoactive THC is the primary component of interest. Desirable traits of recreational cannabis would include high levels of THC and low levels of CBD and CBN. This information can be used to compare the relative strengths of the plant material based on THC content. Higher content THC plant material can demand higher prices. This information is valuable to growers, dispensaries and taxing authorities.
The CBD graduates the high of THC and reduces its adverse/side effects linked with psychosis. It keeps the experience more pleasant, while increasing relaxation it helps to find sleep within its natural cycle in contrary to other conventional prescribed drugs.
