WEST COAST CBD STRAINS - THE ESSENTIAL DETAILS

 

Cannabis strains are non-psychoactive or are mildly psychoactive and are popular with people that want the outstanding medical benefits of cannabis, without getting high. CBD (Cannabidiol) strains possess large quantities of CBD, but some may contain some THC (psychoactive).   

 

Both CBD and THC act directly on receptors located on the membrane of cells throughout the body.  It was discovered that the the components in cannabis called cannabinoids, including CBD and THC can act in place of some of the body's own bio-chemicals (endo-cannabinoids) that control or modulate many bodily systems and functions.  When endocannabinoids are in short supply, the result can be over-response actions of nerves, muscles, pain and immune responsible, which is responsible - in part or wholly - for a whole host of conditions and symptoms.  

 

CBD is commonly used for : Anxiety, Arthritis, Chronic Pain, Gastrointestinal Disorder, Headaches, Inflammation, Migraines, Muscle Spasms, PTSD, Stress, Tremors, Crohn's, Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis.

“BEST CBD strain I've tried so far. Many CBD strains have the downside of being a little edgy (for me) so it nice to find one that had a lovely mellowness to it, maybe because it's crossed with an indica? Whatever the case may be - it eased my joint pain and put me in a good humor. The buds are lovely and frosty looking. THC is low - around 4% but I still caught a nice buzz. Very soothing.”

"If you are THC sensitive this is the strain for you. I have chronic pain and refuse to take opiate pain medication for personal reasons, so this saved me from sleepless nights and pain filled days. The only problem is that the THC varies. I found the one that i am using in Maine at .9 THC and 19% CBD, perfect! However, the NETA strain has 2% which is to psychoactive for me. I am still looking for that perfect less than 1% batch out there as my supply is quite low. If you have access this strain induces relaxation, anxiety relief, and enhanced feeling of well being."

“Being a Bartender with PTSD and chronic hip/leg pain due to medical hardware, this is an amazing strain. It has a sweetly sour initial hit while finishing with a flavor of apricot. This is achieved via vaping however. The come up is slightly euphoric and quite thought invoking. I am able to then enjoy the proceeding flux of happiness that ensues while being exceedingly social and coherent. Best strain for my impe...”

“As a person who's gone from a casual every day stoner, to someone who gets crippling anxiety from only a hit or two, Harle Tsu has been a godsend. Normally as I smoke I start to feel stupid, which is a feeling my brain tries to fight, which makes me claustrophobic and overwhelmed.

“ Pennywise has a 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD. Very cautious about taking anything with THC, or high amounts for sure, so Pennywise seemed like a good alternative to some others out there.

This is the only Indica strain that I've found with such a high ratio of CBD to THC. I use this at home to relax. When I go out, I might switch it up and use a CBD sativa like Dancehall.” Leafly

PERFECT MARIJUANA - HOW TO BLEND YOUR STRAINS

 "Patients ask, can mixing strains make a better medicine?  Rec users ask, can mixing strains make for a better high?" The answer to both these questions is a definitive yes.

There are many forms of cannabis based medicines and recreational substances.  There are various forms of hash oil, dabs and butter, hash itself, kief, and hundreds of different strains of cannabis to choose from.  The main ingredients in cannabis are the phyto-cannabinoids, terpenes, essential oils, and an assortment of minor organic and nutritional substances.  

"A mixture of Charlotte's Web and Doug's Varin might deliver one of the most sane, inspired and medicinal highs of all time."

 

TECHNIQUE TO FIND THE SWEET SPOT DOSE OF CBD AND THC

 Dr. Margaret Gedde: Ok, and it’s it is quite a long list, because of the involvement of so many body systems.  In a muscle spasm with pain, cannabis is a really good muscle relaxer.  Both THC and CBD goes into the muscles really well in a topical pain rub.  The cannabis can penetrate skin, because of its oily nature, it goes right through the skin, into the tissues.  So it treats muscles spasm, either through the topical root or by the oral route, swallow down by mouth edibles where the cannabinoids is processed through the liver.  It actually become hydroxylated and turned into a somewhat different form. It’s that edible root that will give the best deep relaxation, and pain relief, and it lasts the longest.  This is because we get these hydroxyl forms.  So in muscle spasm. the pain signals are sent effectively to settle down a nerve generating the pain.

CHARLOTTE'S WEB - THE CBD STORY THAT ROCKED THE INDUSTRY

The CBD oil, you probably heard of it by now, thanks to CNN Dr. Sanjay Gupta.  People are lighting up all over the country.  Millions are now aware of the cannabinoid rich oil being used to help children in Colorado with epilepsy, especially this one little girl Charlotte Figi, after whom the Charlotte’s web strain of cannabis had been named.

 

Cannabidiol - Good Medical Evaluation of Wiki

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis.  It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant's extract.  CBD does not appear to have any intoxicating effects such as those caused by THC in cannabis, but may have effects on anxiety and anti-psychotic effects.

 

Benefits of CBD Get National Attention, California NORML - Great Study

 Spurred by growing reports of the medical efficacy of cannabidiol (CBD), the second leading active ingredient in cannabis, patients are increasingly seeking out high-CBD varieties for treatment of conditions ranging from severe epilepsy and multiple sclerosis to anxiety and cancer pain.  CBD has long been overshadowed by delta-9-THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the primary active ingredient in cannabis, because unlike THC, it does not produce a psychoactive “high.” CBD has nonetheless long been known to have useful anti-spasmodic, anti-epileptic, anti-anxiety, and anti-psychotic properties.
