RVA Homegrown Reddit Thread Feb. Fire 2022
"Hey growers, congrats on your recent harvest and good luck in the competition! This is Tara over at Kultivate Wellness and today I’d like to share with you the benefits of blending your flower with ours! Basically, two strains together can create a custom experience and bring out the best effect of both 🙌
The majority of people who enjoy mixing CBD with THC, do so seeking the entourage effect. This is the idea that cannabinoids work better together, instead of each on it’s own.
•Reduce negative effects
Many people are forced to decrease their THC intake due to the psychoactive effects they experience. Things like jobs, kids, or paranoia may keep some away from consuming needed meds. In comes CBD! Not only does it not get you high, but it also counteracts some of the more negative effects of THC such as paranoia.
•Make your harvest go further
Many people in a newly legal state, myself included, still sometimes experience lack of readily available THC flower. Blending your buds together can make a great harvest last even longer if need be!
Finding the perfect CBD:THC Ratio
CBD:THC – 1:1
A 1:1 mixture of CBD to THC is considered to be the “golden ratio” (even according to the scientists!)
If you consume this perfect ratio expect to feel psychoactive effects from the THC. The “high” feeling will be much less than if you’d consumed no CBD at all. Any negative THC effects such as paranoia and anxiety will be greatly reduced.
CBD:THC – 2:1
At the 2:1 ratio consumers will notice a high feeling, but not enough to feel intoxicated or completely overwhelmed.
Most common effects are feeling uplifted, positive, and creative without the negative feelings that may come with high THC.
CBD:THC – 8:1
The 8:1 ratio is perfect for daytime consumers that need to stay in high functioning mode but still medicate. A light buzz might be felt, but there will not be impairment to productivity or ability to function.
CBD:THC – 20:1
The 20:1 ratio has only a very small amount of THC and is recommended to first-time cannabis users that wish to enjoy the entourage effects of the two cannabinoids working together, but with absolutely no high feeling.
So what’s the perfect strain for you? It’s super easy to find and customize your stash with our flower. Each strain is lab tested with the full profile, including terpenes, listed on each.
