THC/CBD a winning combo!
Some people can’t function without their morning coffee. Others rely on a glass of wine to get through the day after a stressful meeting. And still others prefer walking into their office with a buzz from another substance, like cannabis. While some may turn to these substances to alleviate symptoms of stress or anxiety, many others do so as an easy way to relax and unwind — especially if they’re also using them recreationally at home or after work for fun. But just because you don’t need that extra boost at work doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it! In fact, there’s something special about being able to get high in your own home or office without anyone knowing about it. It’s entirely up to you how much (or little) you want other people around you knowing about your habits; but if you’ve ever wanted to be your own buzz master — one who knows exactly what works best for you individually — read on for my tips on how to create one:
Know your plant
There are a few things you should know about the difference between THC and CBD. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid that gets you high and can make you feel anxious or paranoid, whereas CBD does not produce these effects. However, there are also many strains that have both cannabinoids in them; this is called a hybrid strain.
Most cannabis plants have one of two types of chemical compounds inside them: indica or sativa. Indica plants tend to be shorter than sativa with thinner leaves and shorter flowering cycles–they’re often used for pain relief since they’re known for their sedating effects on the body due to their high levels of THC content compared to other strains like sativas which contain higher amounts of cannabidiol (CBD). On average they take anywhere between 8-12 weeks before harvest time depending on how much light exposure they receive during this period!
The entourage effect
The entourage effect is a term that refers to the synergistic effect of all the compounds in cannabis. It’s why THC and CBD aren’t as effective on their own, and why you need to know your plant.
The entourage effect was first described by Raphael Mechoulam in 1998, who noted that “cannabidiol (CBD) may have significant medical benefits without producing a high”. In other words: when you’re using a specific strain with high levels of CBD or low amounts of THC, it will not get you high because there isn’t enough THC present for psychoactive effects–but it can still provide relief from pain or inflammation!
A few things to know
- Know your plant.
- The entourage effect.
- Your own dose.
You can be your own buzz master
- Know your plant. There are many different strains of cannabis, and each one has its own unique effects. Some strains are better for pain relief, others for anxiety or depression. If you have a medical marijuana card or live in a legalized state, you can find out which strain is best for you by reading reviews online or asking a budtender at a dispensary about their favorite strains of cannabis.
- The entourage effect refers to the increase cannabinoid activity as they interact with your endocannabinoid system. For example, some people have noticed that taking extra CDB helps to lessen paranoia or anxiety often associated with too much THC. As mentioned above, with the compounds working together, many people experience relief with lower doses of THC when coupled with CBD, this allows them to still function at a higher level while getting some relief, unlike opioid drugs which often have severe side-effects and just plain make you tired.
- If you live in a state where recreational marijuana is not legal and you do not posses a med ID card, there is still hope for you. You can find premium hemp derived THC/CBD from companies like Nukana that are passionate about making sure these products are available for everyone of legal age that can potentially benefit from them. Nukana offers topicals, tinctures, gel caps, and gummies. Bonus, it is much more discreet to take a gummy and a couple drops from a tincture or a gel cap. This ensures you are not walking around smelling like weed, as we all know, this could cause you to be chosen for a “random” drug test at work.
- Know your dose. The amount of THC in each gram of marijuana varies from strain to strain; some have higher levels than others do. If you’re new to smoking weed, it’s important that you start with smaller amounts until you figure out how much works best for your body (and mind). Once again: do not smoke too much! It may seem like fun at first but it can quickly turn into an unpleasant high if taken too far–not something anyone wants when they’re trying their best not only enjoy themselves but also remember what happened later on down the line when writing blog posts about how awesome everything was while soberly reflecting back upon good times spent with friends…
- This is where Nukana’s products really shine. Nukana’s Delta 9 gummies are dosed at 10mg each. Our CBD Gel caps at 25mg and our tinctures also allow you to control your dose. This enables you to very specifically and systematically figure out the ideal dose of each cannabinoid to get the exact effect you are seeking. This is much harder to do with smoking. Smoking will allow you to feel the effects much faster but they also do not last as long. For longer lasting effects, edibles and either gel caps or tinctures are the way to go as the digestive system seems to act in a similar manner as time released supplements and pills.
