Did you know, the most popular cannabinoid found in marijuana has an extraordinary impact on an entire plethora of medical conditions.

Cannabidiol, or in short CBD, is a non-psychoactive chemical compound found in all varieties of the cannabis plant, and unlike cousin THC (or tetrahydrocannabinol), it doesn’t create any mind-altering or hallucinogenic states of mind.

The way CBD works is it stimulates  the endocannabinoid system which is a physiological system that’s in charge of keeping the body in perfect balance ,one doctor reffered to this as homeostasis,on a microscopic, cellular level. The endocannabinoid system can be stimulated by three different kinds of cannabinoids, and those are endocannabinoids, which are made solely in our body, phytocannabinoids which are found in cannabis, and synthetic cannabinoids.

So the ECS (endocannabinoid system) is affected by the active cannabinoid compounds found in pot, and CBD (which is the second most prominent cannabinoid in the marijuana plant) is responsible for causing relaxation, reduction of anxiety, battling inflammation, destroying bacteria, lessening the symptoms of pain and nausea, and plenty more. Using strains that are potent in both CBD and THC can have some astonishing effects on one’s health, because of the so-called enhancement effect, where the two cannabinoids boost each other’s strengths.

Some studies also suggest that consuming both cannabinoids also helps to fight cancer cells with much more energy and power than when absorbed independently. This synergic effect isn’t useful only for medical users, but CBD actually lessens the symptoms of paranoia and unrest caused by THC.

Another very important thing to consider is the ratio between CBD and THC, and the different effects that different ratios bring to the table. Marijuana produces biphasic effects, which means that in small doses its cannabinoids create one effect and that larger doses may create some utterly contrasting ones. THC or rather, Tetrahydrocannabinol, for example, can make you paranoid in larger quantities, so if you’re trying to achieve a casual, non-intrusive high, stick to strains where THC levels are low to moderate.

Strains that are high in CBD and low in THC are awesome for medicinal purposes, as the cannabinoids in this type of ratio work amazing off each other, creating multiple health-beneficial effects, while the dominant CBD stops the low levels of THC getting you “typically” high.

By the way, strains that are equal in percentages of both cannabinoids are quite rare on today’s market, offering a slight cerebral high, with the focus still remaining on the alleviation of health issues.

To sum it up, strains with high levels of THC and low levels of CBD are usually reserved just for recreational purposes, because of the mind-altering high that the THC cannabinoid creates.
