FEELING AWESOME IS THE NEW “HIGH” FOR SOME PATIENTS

Another way of saying this, if you enjoy smoking or vaping THC, consider vaping a 1:1 CBD:THC flower or oil.

For chronic THC users, the feeling of getting “high” becomes more and more elusive. This is due to our down-regulating or suppressing our CB-1 or Cannabinoid-1 receptors in our brain. This is another way of saying we become “tolerant” to the effects of THC. Patients go to dabs and other concentrates, but ultimately our CB-1 receptor gets hammered and more and more oil is “needed” and certainly used.

As there are some 1:1 or 2:1 CBD:THC strains out there, such as Harlequin and Omrita, with others to come, I have been hearing from patients how they feel.

1. They generally love it and love just having a different feeling of being High

2. They become more sensitive to THC; i.e. they up-regulate their CB-1 receptors.

3. They have less pain

4. They never get that THC anxiety feeling

5. Often more mood and clarity elevation

So, start asking your dispensaries to start carrying some CBD:THC balanced oils and flowers.

Cannabis May Prevent COVID-19 Infections

Early studies in both Israel and Canada show findings consistent with CBD's effect on COVID-19's ability to take hold in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract. If the receptors are reduced, the viral infection and pulmonary toxicity should be reduced.
