CBD to THC Ratios

CBD 16 Nov 2021

When it comes to the euphoric high effect associated with cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the substance responsible for it. So, it does not come as a surprise that every cannabis user knows and loves this substance. Similarly, lots of cannabis users have heard a few things about CBD, which is another chemical inside cannabis.

The combination of CBD and THC makes cannabis better

If THC is combined with CBD, it will produce lots of exceptional medicinal benefits you cannot get from the weed you get from your local dealer. This combination leads to the Entourage Effect, which is a synergistic experience associated with the consumption of several cannabinoids at once. To get the desired medicinal effect, you will have to take a fewer amount of each cannabinoid.

Besides, the effects of cannabis on you will depend on the ratio of the cannabinoids available in it. For instance, you can use CBD to get rid of paranoia, anxiety, increased blood pressure, and other side effects of THC. Consequently, combining these two cannabinoids will give you an intense yet calmer high.

What should be the right cannabinoid ratios?

Generally, if a product contains both CBD and THC, it will have the ratio of these two cannabinoids written on its packaging. Assuming a product has 80mg of CBD as well as 20mg of THC, its packaging will have a ratio of 4:1 (CBD:THC). It should be noted that any of these cannabinoids may be more than the other or their quantities may be equal.

Today, there are tons of strains of flower with a significantly higher quantity of THC than CBD and other cannabinoids. For instance, you can come across a THC:CBD ratio of 300:1. While such a product can be great for recreational users looking for the high effects, its medicinal application will be substantially limited. Nevertheless, some cannabis growers are focused on producing flower strains with high CBD.

Various CBD:THC ratios

Nowadays, lots of flower strains naturally have a higher quantity of CBD than THC such as a 20:1 (CBD:THC). Such flower strains can come in handy for dealing with conditions such as inflammation, mood disorders, epilepsy, and depression. With any ratio higher than 12:1 (CBD:THC), the consumers can experience some signs of intoxication. Nonetheless, because people tolerate and react to THC differently, the intoxicating effect is not the same for everyone.

Despite its possible intoxication, the majority of cannabis users prefer THC as the most medicinal cannabinoid. However, CBD has proven to have a plethora of medicinal effects on varying syndromes and health conditions.

Nonetheless, you can get more medicinal benefits from cannabis by combining THC with CBD. But there is no straightforward method for finding the best ratio for you. You just need to experiment with it. You can also consult with our budtenders to learn about the best strains available.
