CBD, abbreviated for Cannabidiol, is a natural compound found in cannabis and typically thought to be the most beneficial compound in the plant. THC, Tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, is CBD’s best friend. When these two compounds are activated and ingested they synergistically complement each other and deliver exceptional medical benefits.
CBD has been found to enhance THC’s painkilling properties. Studies have shown that a 1:1 ratio of THC:CBD exert far greater pain relief and improvements in sleep than THC alone. It was also shown to reduce cancer-related pain more than THC rich extracts. In patients with schizophrenia, the 1:1 ratio was shown to reduce abnormalities in psychomotor performance. THC and CBD have also been found to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. Alone the compounds have been shown to hold these properties but they perform the task better together.
Another interesting reaction to their simultaneous presence is CBD prolonging the medicinal benefit of THC. When CBD is present with THC, CBD inhibits the breakdown process of THC in the liver. Although the CBD will reduce the psychoactive effects of THC, the medicinal benefits are extended. If nausea or vomiting is a persistent problem for you, the CBD:THC combination is an excellent treatment. You can get quick and lasting relief with little side effects and if you do not want any psychoactive effect, choose a product with a greater CBD ratio in comparison to THC. Their synergy works wonders for chronic ailments.
THC is also used to help reduce inflammation and this benefit is also extended with the presence of CBD in the endocannabinoid system. Patients that experienced anxiety with THC, noted that introducing CBD helped reduce the anxiety without reducing the healing and enhancing the relaxing properties.
