Everyone is different so finding the right ratio is unique to your needs. High THC ratio with little or no CBD can be intoxicating and provide relief from discomfort. Low to no THC and high CBD can provide relief from normal inflammation with little to no psychoactivity.
What is the Right Ratio CBD to THC
Have you ever seen numbers like 1:3, 3:1, and 1:30 on your favorite product? Here’s why: these numbers represent the ratio of CBD to THC. Understanding ratios and how to apply them is an important step in figuring out which product or strain is right for you.
What is a High THC Dosing Ratio
A high THC ratio with little or no CBD can be very psychoactive and provide a powerful elevated effect. A topical application, however, will not result in a high. These ratios are preferred primarily by recreational users, although it can also be used to help with anxiety, mood improvement, and help with nausea & vomiting.
Topically, THC can also help manage acute pain. Balanced ratios are the most popular variety because they have the widest range of uses. These even blends are helpful for both physical healing and relaxation and for achieving the psychoactive properties and benefits of THC.
In fact, any ratios that include both THC and CBD, even in small amounts, activate the entourage effect and are of the greatest overall value compared to pure THC and CBD mixtures.
What is a High CBD Dosing Ratio
Low to no THC and high CBD mixtures, as well as mixtures that include THC-A will provide the relief and swelling reduction without much psychoactivity, if any. These ratios are of most use to those who wish to use cannabis medicinally and for pain relief, relaxation, and wellness without psychoactive effects. Understanding the dosing ratios associated with THC and CBD can help you refine your cannabis experience and tailor it to your needs.
