Different strains and cannabinoid profiles result in typical effects. It is critical to define the goals of treatment.
THC is "The Head Changer."
CBD is the "Chronic Body Drug."
Understanding the effects of each is paramount. The use of both (rather than pure CBD) in the proper ratio is generally more effective.
THC or TetraHydroCannabinol is also known as "The Head Changer" due to its psychoactive effects. These are usually either calming or stimulating depending on the strain/product used.
CBD or CannaBiDiol is also knowns as the "Chronic Body Drug." It is minimally psychoactive and has a broad range of healing effects. It is especially good as an anti-inflammatory medicine.
Terms are volatile compounds found in cannabis and other plants. They have varying effects and are important considerations in cannabis strain selection.
Indica, sativa, hybrids, CBD & Hemp Strains are available. All have different content or "profiles" of THC, CBD, Terpenes and other constituents. Choosing the best strain for a particular health issue is important.
