How Much Weed Do I Need?
It is highly recommended that for first-time medical weed users, a low dose of 10 to 15 mg of active cannabinoids such as THC and CBD is effective enough without the state of dysphoria. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the psychoactive component in weed that is responsible for that high feeling, while CBD (cannabidiol) is the non-psychoactive compound in weed that is known to have numerous healing abilities. With the right combination and balance of both, patients are surely guaranteed the best weed experience making the most out of its medical aspects.
A client’s stimulus to THC should be the main determinant for the ratio and dosage of CBD-infused products. While most patients can tolerate the intoxicating feeling from the effects of THC, others simply aren’t very comfortable with it. CBD can lessen this intoxicating feeling, therefore, a higher CBD to THC ratio is recommended for those who want the medical benefits without feeling high.
For patients with physical and mental conditions such as depression, anxiety, muscle spasms, seizures, et al.; a higher dose of CBD and a ratio of 10:1 for CBD: THC medicines are the best therapeutic option. For other diseases such as cancer, neurological illnesses, et al.; a balanced ratio of CBD and THC which is 1:1 is proven effective for neuropathic pain. Know Your weed Strains
Some seasoned patients have a particular taste in their weed medication. When you buy weed online, it is of the essence that you know what you’re paying for and most especially, what you’re smoking. A weed flower has two different classifications with two varying effects. They are known as Sativa and Indica. On the other hand, Hybrid is the third classification which is a combination of both Sativa and Indica. These three strains are almost always present in an online dispensary’s menu and it’s the buyer’s responsibility and privilege to know what they’re getting.
What is Sativa?
Sativa strains are relatively taller and thinner than its Indica counterparts. They’re mostly cultivated in warmer weather and the shade is a distinct lighter green. The vegetation periods for Sativa strains are comparatively longer which is around 10 to 16 weeks for full maturation. Due to this, these types of strains create a higher yield than Indica but contain a lower THC component, approximately around 12 to 16 percent.
These strains are effective in uplifting, energizing, and stimulating. That’s why, Sativa is popularly used in treating several mental and behavioural conditions such as stress, depression, anxiety, and ADHD. If you see weed users laughing uncontrollably or engaging in abysmal conversations, these are the effects of Sativa strains. The geniuses who claim to abide in weed for their creativity like some famous artists, musicians, inventors, and philosophers have been successful in their fields of work.
What is Indica?
Diversely, Indica strains appear shorter and stouter. They have relatively shorter and fatter leaves as well with a rich darker green colour. These strains are said to produce a smaller yield than Sativa strains. The Indica strains thrive in cooler temperatures as opposed to Sativa being grown in warmer weather. These strains are ideal for indoor cultivation because they are short even at full maturation which is between eight to 12 weeks.
Indica strains are famous for its “sedative-like” effect on people. Those that want to nestle on the couch for hours on end just “movie-marathoning” their night away turn to Indica for a deep, sound, and uninterrupted sleep. That’s why Indica strains are prescribed to patients experiencing muscle spasms, chronic pain, anxiety, nausea, sleep deprivation, and those who have a severe appetite loss disorder.
What is Hybrid?
As the name suggests, Hybrids are cross-cultivated strains of Sativa and Indica. The effects of Hybrid strains depend on which strain is more dominant. There are three main classifications of Hybrids:
- Sativa-dominant Hybrids are strains which offer a cerebral high with a mentally calming effect.
- Even Hybrids which comprise of a 50/50 balance between the two strains provide the perfect high and therapeutic effect physically and mentally.
- Indica-dominant Hybrids are known to assuage body pains with an evident relaxing mental effect.
What is Weed Concentrates?
A weed concentrate is an extremely potent THC-infused mass which looks like butter or honey. weed concentrates are usually called “honey oil” or “budder”. The THC component in concentrates is relatively high at a percentage of up to 80 percent and is usually stronger than a top-notch weed flower. It is recommended to consult your online dispensary in Canada as to how much the needed dosage for your concentrate is as these can result in intense physical and psychological effects.
What are CBD Oils?
The innovation from the weed aficionados with years of experience has led to the creation of CBD oils. These oils are highly concentrated in CBD which in effect when taken, don’t alter the client’s state of mind. It has also been proven that CBD oils have numerous health benefits without the psychoactive high feeling. These CBD oils come from hemp plants, a least processed form of weed plants which contain most of the medicinal attributes.
What are Edibles?
Although the legalization of weed has allowed every Canadian, of legal age, the use of weed through smoking; some are still quite picky about the intake of medical weed. That’s why all licensed producers are providing clients with different ways of benefiting from the said plant and that includes weed edibles. These are mostly Sativa-infused products while some can be categorized as hybrid edibles which target both physical and psychological effects. These can be through a gastrointestinal uptake such as brownies, cookies, pill capsules, or any type of food-like products. They can also be through oral uptake which tends to affect the patient faster and wear off faster as well. Some examples are suckers, lozenges, or tinctures.
One noticeable example of the evident effects of weed edibles is those who are experiencing a gastrointestinal disorder called Crohn’s Disease. Because these edibles are taken orally which go directly to the gastrointestinal tract, it relieves the said disease as active and inactive cannabinoids are spread where Crohn’s Disease is rooted.
