Finding relief from chronic symptoms can at times be a frustrating process. While there isn’t an exact formula that will guarantee your desired results, experimenting with CBD/THC ratios can help you find the relief you seek. One of the most effective methods for helping pain, insomnia, and gastrointestinal issues is to use THC in combination with CBD in equal parts or a two-to-one ratio.
Why do they work better together?
CBD and THC work synergistically meaning they yield better results when they are combined compared to when they work alone. A study in 2010 found that patients with intractable cancer-related pain tolerated medicines that combined THC and CBD remarkably better than THC by itself.
Figure out what works for you.
Another benefit of CBD/THC combinations is that there is a lesser occurrence of THC intoxication which may prevent you from activities like driving or working. If you are sensitive to THC we recommend a 2:1 ratio in favor of CBD to keep you clear headed and able to go on with your daily tasks. Monitor your effects with each ratio until you figure out the best solution for your symptoms. That solution may fluctuate from day to day depending on the severity of your discomfort.
