CBD is non-psychoactive, offsets some of the negative effects associated with THC and offers exceptional curative potential
Acquiring a medical marijuana card is a relatively straightforward and swift process. The card provides access to the medicinal marijuana dispensaries in the patient’s home state. However, this qualification doesn’t supply education or information about medicinal cannabis. The first trip to the dispensary can be intimidating. There are an abundance of cannabis products on the markets. There are hundreds of brands and strains available. The range of consumption methods is diverse. The terminology is confusing. Not everyone is aware of all of the opportunities or the difference between THC and CBD. Even the categories of sativa, indica and hybrid don’t provide more than a guideline of what to buy. Fortunately, many of the medical marijuana dispensaries offer educational classes and one-on-one consultations. The budtenders are typically well-versed in the array of products and effects. Since each person is unique in their preferences, tolerances and objectives, it can take some careful experimentation to determine the right fit. While one patient may have great success with edibles, another finds the delayed onset of effects a problem. There are conditions that are best treated with topicals while others do better with an ingestion method. For beginners, it’s recommended to start out with those strains that offer a higher CBD ratio and lower THC levels. The most well-known and abundant cannabinoid, THC is responsible for the high sensation. CBD is non-psychoactive, offsets some of the negative effects associated with THC and offers exceptional curative potential. There are full spectrum CBD products that include a selection of cannabinoids and compounds from the plant, including tract amounts of THC. There are also broad-spectrum CBD options that contain all of those same compounds without any presence of THC. CBD isolates have nothing but CBD.
