Non-psychotic CBD strains and products are becoming increasingly popular as health aiding products. Scientific studies are throwing light on their astonishing benefits on mental and physical ailments, without creating mind-altering or hallucinogenic states of mind, unlike THC.
CBD is known to relax, de-stress, reduce inflammation, pain, nausea and destroy bacteria. The synergy of hybrid strains that combine both CBD and THC add more power to the compounds, making them twice as effective than working independently. It’s all in the ratio! Single doses of a cannabinoid has one effect but combined doses have quite another. THC for instance can instil paranoia when consumed in larger quantities.
Low THC and high CBD strains are known to work magic together, creating multiple health-benefits. However, the high prices of CBD products can leave you looking the other way. Below, we make it easier for you to identify the ones you should be looking for.
