A marijuana strain can be dominant in either THC or CBD, but it can also be a combination of those two. Both THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol) have their therapeutic properties. Some of those medicinal properties like pain management are enhanced when a strain contains both THC and CBD.
However, not all cannabis users are okay with the effects of THC. That is why high-CBD strains exist. The CBD-dominant strains are good for consumers who are susceptible to anxiety, which is more likely to occur with high-THC cannabis strains. CBD can help limit the negative and paranoid adverse reactions that some users experience with the high-THC cannabis strains.
Cannabidiol or CBD is the non-intoxicating compound of marijuana that goes with various therapeutic effects like:
Recent studies revealed that cannabidiol delivers antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, neuroprotectant, analgesic, antidepressant, antipsychotic, and anti-tumoral effects without being mind-altering or psychoactive. That is because high-CBD strains may still contain THC but limited to just 1%.
CBD strains have become so popular in the past few years. They have been found beneficial to patients of all ages. CBD strains are proven effective in treating a variety of health conditions. Be it stress, anxiety, or severe conditions like epilepsy, you can always count to CBD strains.
