The year is 1964 and Dr. Raphael Mechoulam - along with his colleagues, have succeeded in the very first identification and isolation of the active compounds in marijuana: THC and CBD.
Over the following decades, THC took the spotlight, leading growers to focus on increasing its potency so much that hey almost bred CBD out of existence. Today CBD is having a resurgence, and for good reason. Studies have shown that CBD can help combat stress, anxiety, as well as reduce pain, inflammation and help with sleep. The compound once considered pointless is now helping people all of over the world.
This new popularity has caused one problem though: a shortage. Due to this under-supply, CBD isn't cheap, which has caused a dilemma for consumers. Either you can spend lots of money to enjoy its beneficial effects, or reduce the dosage to the point where the positive effects become completely negligible. Neither of those options are very appealing and thankfully science is giving us the break we need.
Studies show that CBD is much more effective when combined with THC. The two compounds have a synergistic effect, and when combined they interact in our bodies in a way which produces a stronger overall effect. When you consume CBD with a small amount of THC in it, the CBD will do it’s job better within your system providing you with better effects.
The addition of CBD can also improve your experience with THC. CBD can help those who deal with anxiety in two ways. The addition of CBD can help to mitigate a negative outcome and keep intoxication more body focused and less of an anxious head-high, while the CBD itself works on helping with he pain and anxiety. When it comes to your hard earned money, the goal is always to find the lowest dose that provides the needed medicinal benefits.
The best available science makes clear that taking the two compounds together will maximize each other’s therapeutic effects, so while CBD may be in shortage, and money is tight, getting the most out of it is still attainable.
