Cannabis and the Entourage Effect

Cannabis is one of the most complex plants that produce a synergistic effect when consumed with its 113+ cannabinoids, 200+ terpenes, and 100+ natural compounds. All of these elements interact to produce synergistic effects that create relief from pain, anxiety, insomnia, and more. Cannabis is said to be polypharmaceutical producing the entourage effect, or the combined effect of all components in marijuana that work together to produce an effect that is superior to specific cannabis extracts, such as pure THC or pure CBD.

The importance of full spectrum cannabinoid products sparks conversations that are less often discussed, but very important and useful in understanding the therapeutic and medicinal characteristics of cannabis consumption. This understanding enables patients and consumers to utilize cannabis in innovative ways that help reduce and eliminate (for some) the use of OTC and pharmaceutical pills/ointments that may possess undesirable side effects.

Understanding How Cannabis’s Entourage Effect Works

Various ratios of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other compounds create references to identify many cannabis strains/varieties. Extractors and processors mimic and manipulate these combinations to produce products with education that are targeted for specific reliefs. THC and CBD are the primary cannabinoids that the body uses to achieve therapeutic and medicinal benefits. Alone, these cannabinoids may not create much of an enjoyable experience. THC may induce anxiety in some and CBD, as an antagonist of THC, may not create much of an effect at all. Combined at various ratios, THC and CBD work together in an attempt to create a balanced environment for the body’s endocannabinoid system. If we consider THC and CBD as the foundations for therapeutic benefits from cannabis, terpenes would be the construction engineers building the experiences. Terpenes help regulate and maximize the benefits of consuming THC and CBD both therapeutically and medicinally.

How To Use This Information

Some studies have shown that full-spectrum extracts produce 330% more activity than THC alone. This tells us that full-spectrum cannabinoid products are more beneficial than singularly isolated cannabis compounds alone. For example, a cancer patient ingesting isolated THC may benefit from the THC killing cancer cells by causing cell apoptosis, but the patient may not enjoy the euphoric activity that accompanies THC effects. However, if the same patient utilizes full-spectrum cannabinoid products, then the euphoria from the THC is better regulated by the presence of CBD and other terpenes/compounds that are noted to produce a calming effect. A more common explanation is determining sativa, indica, and other information about cannabis products to determine best situations for use; indica properties may create feelings of lethargy and lack of motivation for some consumers during the day while creating a space of clarity and organized thoughts for patients seeking relief from ADD/ADHD symptoms.

It’s very important to understand that all of the compounds found in cannabis work together to provide healing and relief. When purchasing cannabis products, try to select products that contain full-spectrum extracts to ensure a synergistic balance and maximize the many benefits of cannabis consumption. One may find very similar pricing to achieve what some refer to as more bang for your buck. Easy ways to identify these products include verbiage that says full-spectrum or strain-specific or targeted/proprietary blend and similar. If all else fails, don’t be afraid to ask your budtender or research the product before purchasing.

Children Are the New Demographic for Medical Cannabis and its Benefits

With talk of the positive effects of cannabis, we welcome in a new demographic of parents who are willing to test the benefits of cannabis to heal their ailing children. Recent studies have found that one in five children, age 3-17, suffer from some form of mental disorder. And according to the Pediatrics Academic Societies, the percentage of children with chronic health conditions is on the rise.

Cannabis And its Cure For ADHD

One of the most common mental health disorders is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). According to the National Institute of Health, ADHD is a brain disorder marked by an ongoing pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development. ADHD is most commonly treated with psychostimulants such as Adderall, Ritalin, and Concerta. One of the main irregularities of ADHD is the brain’s shortage of dopamine. And whereas the current medications treat ADHD by giving the brain a surplus of dopamine, they can leave harmful side effects. However, by supplying dopamine, cannabis can be as effective and more in treating hyperactivity, without the negative side effects. Cannabis researcher, Dr. David Bearman writes:

Cannabis appears to treat ADD and ADHD by increasing the availability of dopamine. This then has the same effect but is a different mechanism of action than stimulants like Ritalin (methylphenidate) and dexedrine amphetamine, which act by binding to the dopamine and interfering with the metabolic breakdown of dopamine.”

Dr. Bearman has observed the effectiveness of cannabis in treating ADHD, and some children have already begun to experience its healing properties. Leafly spoke with Antonio Rodriguez, who, at age six, was diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and immediately prescribed a common stimulant medication. “I remember having headaches all the time to the point where I wasn’t able to sleep,” Antonio said. As a side effect, Antonio’s appetite diminished until adding cannabis to his medical routine. That’s when Antonio found that the cannabis was not only treating the medication’s side effects, but it was also improving his  ADD/ADHD symptoms. “For the first time ever, I was in the state where I could really get my mind together.”

Cannabis Is Beneficial In Treating the Symptoms of Autism

Another leading mental disorder affecting the health of children is autism. Serving as one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the U.S., autism is a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication.

According to the National Health Information Survey (NHIS), autism rates for children in 2016 were 1 in 36, the highest ever recorded and an increase from the reported rate of 1 in 45 in the 2014 NHIS survey. Only two medications have been approved by the FDA  to treat the symptoms of autism but are not always effective and carry serious side effects. As an alternative, Dr. Giovanni Martinez reports that cannabis oil has already shown to have positive effects in relieving the symptoms of autism. Dr. Martinez researches the therapeutic possibilities of treating children who have autism with CBD oil and recounts a case in which Kalel Santiago, a mute child with severe autism, began to speak his first words after receiving an oral double-daily dose of hemp oil spray. Dr. Martinez states:

“He started using the product three weeks ago. He was a full non-verbal patient. He only made sounds. The only change in his treatments was the use of CBD. Initially, the child would become so frustrated with his inability to communicate, he would act out and injure himself. But, now that he can express himself, he laughs and enjoys life.”

Kalel Santiago is living proof that cannabis is beneficial. Cannabis oil has not only been used to treat autism and ADHD, but a variety of diseases and conditions, such as anxiety, strokes, cancer, glaucoma, and easing the severity/number of seizures in those with epilepsy.So how do we harness cannabis in order to cure? For starters, James Henry SF’s Day-Time Focus line was inspired by Adderall and offers the benefits of the drug in addressing ADHD without its negative side effects. But in terms of long-term benefit, and as adolescent mental health issues have shown to cost to society as high as $247 billion annually, it is beneficial that we continue to explore, legalize and decriminalize the use of cannabis to treat even more diseases.

Fighting Cancer with Cananbis

Although there are many speculations around cannabis, THC: CBD ratios and all of cannabis’ health benefits, there is one common fact: cannabis fights cancer cells.  The world renown National Cancer Institute, an agency that is part of the department of health, has acknowledged studies that show cannabis does, in fact, kill cancer cells. No matter what side of the fence you are on regarding this topic, research proves that cannabis can offer multiple levels of help to aid in the battle with cancer.

What is Cancer?

The chart below shows the number of people per state who were diagnosed with cancer in 2017. And according to the National Cancer Institute, 38.6% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer in the US at some point in their lifetime.

So what is cancer? Unlike normal cell growth, cancer is uncontrollable cell division, where cells of the body continue to grow, but don’t die. This is because cancer cells can ignore signals that normally indicate to stop dividing. These cancer cells are then able to persuade the environment that they are in to support them. Because of this persuasion and a new supply of nutrients directed from normal cells to cancerous ones, tumors, or masses of tissue, are able to form.

There are two types of tumors that can result from cancer: benign and malignant.

Benign Tumors

Benign tumors can arise for many reasons: environmental, genetics, diet, stress, infection, etc. It’s very likely that most lumps that people can feel from the outside of their body are benign, such as many breast lumps. Nine out of 10 women harbor benign tissue transformations. Benign Tumors usually:

  • Grow slowly

  • Don’t spread

  • Are not cancerous

  • Won’t transfer to or harm nearby tissues

In order to treat a benign tumor, many doctors just wait it out, as they watch to see whether or not the tumor will spread to any other areas of the body. If so, surgery may be suggested to remove the tumor as it may become malignant.

Malignant Tumors

Malignant tumors can potentially result in death. They are typically formed from unstable, abnormal cells and are able to travel through the bloodstream and circulatory system, as they continue to proliferate. Malignant tumors usually:

  • Grow rapidly

  • Spread

  • Are cancerous

  • Can transfer to or harm nearby tissues

Whereas benign tumors can be addressed by watchful waiting, malignant tumors should be addressed as soon as possible.


In order to treat malignant tumors, many people who have had or currently have cancer and know that it is a very difficult condition to endure and fight, turn to chemotherapy and radiation treatment.

Chemotherapy Cancer Treatment

Chemotherapy is a cancer treatment that utilizes drugs in order to kill cancer cells. These drugs may be administered through oral consumption or injection. This occurs through a duration of repetitive treatments followed by days of rest. This therapy procedure is referred to as a systemic one, meaning that it can affect the patient's entire body. While chemo drugs affect cancer cells, they also affect normal, healthy cells. This is because chemo drugs can’t decipher between certain characteristics; example being, if a healthy cell (such as a hair cell) divides quickly, the chemo drug will destroy it. This is why many who experience chemo suffer hair and/or appetite loss.

Radiation Therapy for Cancer Treatment

Radiation therapy serves to combat cancer cells through a process of high-energy radiation via X-rays, gamma rays, and charged particles. Radiation therapy seeks to kill cancer cells by damaging their DNA, thereby ceasing their divide and initiating their death. Similar to chemotherapy, radiation therapy is administered through a duration of treatments and also results in the death of healthy cells. Additionally, radiation treatment has been shown to raise the risk of getting another cancer.


After reading the damaging effects on healthy cells from chemotherapy and radiation therapy, you might think “there’s got to be another way.” We’re here to tell you, there is and it’s found through cannabis. In 2003 the US government patented medical cannabis, US Patent #663057, acknowledging cannabis’s medicinal properties.

Cannabis Fights Cancer

The human body has an endocannabinoid system that responds positively to THC and CBD.

THC is a cannabinoid of cannabis. When THC connects to the cannabinoid receptor on the cancer cell, it causes an increase in ceramide synthesis, which drives cell death. The key to the cure is the accumulation of ceramide. Because of this, cannabinoids can impair tumor progression at various levels. As molecular biologist, Dr. Christina Sanchez comments in her research,

“We observed that when we treated these cells [tumor cells] with cannabinoids, THC, the main psychoactive component of cannabis, was killing the cells in our Petri dishes. We were killing the cells.”

This cellular effect can be achieved by taking minute amounts of cannabis oil through a duration of treatments. And though the repetitive nature is similar, unlike chemotherapy and radiation, with cannabis, healthy cells don’t produce ceramide when THC is present, and therefore are not harmed by its presence. In addition, cannabis can be easily administered orally or through inhalation. Oral cannabis can be consumed in the form of baked goods or herbal tea, although cannabis enters the bloodstream more quickly when smoked or vaporized.

Protection from Developing Cancer through Cannabis

Cannabis extract has been used for many years in the treatment of many illnesses, however, the extracted oil from cannabis has done wonders on cancer treatment and has even helped in eliminating the side effects of chemo and radiation therapies. Some of the benefits of cannabis that are crucial for battling cancer are its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.  Inflammation is a response by the body’s immune system to injury, bacteria or viruses. And as many chronic inflammatory diseases can increase a person’s cancer risk, cannabis can not only relieve inflammation but cancer it can bring as well. In one study, researchers found that cannabinoids can protect neurons from exposure to glutamate, and compared to the vitamins C and E, cannabis proved to be 30-50% more effective in doing so. Therefore, cannabis has shown its THC and CBD cannabinoids contain antioxidant properties useful in clinical applications. And as the consistent antioxidant intake is beneficial to one's overall well being, this antioxidant-rich plant can serve as a lower risk for cancer.

Here are a few other properties that make cannabis powerful in fighting cancer:

  • Anti-tumor: inhibits the growth of tumors

  • Anti-angiogenic: prevents formation of new blood vessels needed by tumors to grow

  • Anti-metastatic: prevents cancer from spreading to other organs in the body

  • Apoptosis: induces cell to self-destruct on its own

As you can see, the benefits of cannabis in treating cancer are outstanding. A study conducted in Washington, DC showed that a quarter of cancer patients that use cannabis, use it for pain relief and one third use it for enjoyment, but what about using cannabis to actually treat cancer?   Dr. Sanjay Gupta states,

“ is irresponsible not to provide the best care we can as a medical community, care that could involve marijuana...We have been terribly and systematically misled for nearly 70 years in the United States”

We at James Henry SF want to help change the outlook on cancer and equip you with the tools for better health. We have a lot of work to do, but the work starts with education and awareness. As a call to action to you - help spread the word and in turn, save lives.

Cannabis Assists Stroke Recovery

The Facts of a Stroke

Strokes are the nation’s 5th largest killer and affect approximately 800,000 people each year.  A stroke occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is disrupted. Upon disruption, brain cells that are deprived of vital oxygen and/or glucose can die. This interruption can cause permanent brain damage and in some cases, death.

There are two types of strokes: ischemic and hemorrhagic. An ischemic stroke accounts for about 87% of all strokes and occurs due to clotting in the brain’s blood vessels, ceasing blood from reaching the brain. Ischemic strokes can be brought on by high blood pressure. The second type of stroke is a hemorrhagic stroke. This type of stroke is less common and makes up about 13% of all strokes. However, hemorrhagic strokes are responsible for about 40% of all stroke deaths. Hemorrhagic strokes occur when a blood vessel within the brain ruptures. The blood then spills into or around the brain, creating pressure and damaging cells. High blood pressure is an important risk factor for increasing your chances of having a stroke, but atrial fibrillation may increase the risk of a stroke by 5x. Therefore, strokes do not discriminate against age, and in fact, nearly a quarter of strokes occur in persons under the age of 65.  The surviving effects can result in paralyzation, degraded motor and memory skills, and more if not treated properly.

Cannabis Helps to Repair and Prevent Further Brain Injury Caused By Strokes

Various research and studies are continuing to expand as more and more tests yield positive results for cannabis as an effective neuroprotectant against brain and stroke trauma. And scholarly papers dating back as early as 1998 suggested that cannabinoids, cannabidiol (CBD) and delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), protect equally well against neurotoxicity mediated by certain receptors. Neurotoxicity occurs when excess toxins accumulate in neurological tissue throughout the body, causing the brain and nervous system to function improperly. Symptoms mimic a number of other conditions, including, but not limited to, chronic fatigue syndrome, ADD/ADHD, recurrent sinus troubles, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), and others. Neurotoxicity is triggered in a stroke due to the lack of oxygen attributed to the buildup of metabolites in blood vessels that service the brain.

Studies show that the aforementioned receptors are calcium-dependent.During an ischemic stroke, large quantities of glutamate neurotransmitters are released, causing an overstimulation of N-methyl-d-aspartate receptors (NMDAr), 2-amino-3- (4-butyl-3-hydroxy isoxazole-5-yl) propionic acid (AMPA) and kainate-type receptors. This results in metabolic stress, causing an accumulation of intracellular calcium that becomes toxic to the body’s cells. Studies have demonstrated how neurotoxicity can be reduced by antioxidants or antagonists to NMDAr and AMPA/kainate receptors. That’s where cannabis comes into play. These studies, therefore, serve as one of many examples of why routine detox is not only healthy but may help add years to a patient’s or consumer’s life.

Cannabinoids have been shown to prevent glutamate neurotoxicity by turning on cannabinoid receptors, thereby reducing the calcium influx. Particularly, cannabidiol (CBD), a component of the marijuana plant Cannabis sativa, does not turn on cannabinoid receptors and thereby doesn't produce psychoactive effects seen in THC. Cannabidiol doesn’t activate the cannabinoid receptor but DOES protect neurons from death by glutamate neurotoxicity. Additionally, although butylhydroxytoluene (BHT), used in stroke medications, are linked to promoting tumors, cannabidiol has no such link. Studies have also shown that cannabidiol is not toxic, making it a great potential treatment for strokes. CBD is most promising for treating stroke victims due to its neutrality on cannabinoid receptors, which alleviates undesired psychotropic feelings of experiencing the often noted cannabis “high.”

Cannabis and its Powerful Antioxidant Compounds for the Human Body

CBD, THC, and accompanying phytocannabinoids have been proven to protect neurons from glutamate-induced cell death. Cannabis not only serves as a powerful antioxidant to assist with cancer relief, but many researchers and medical professionals have noted the power of cannabis to optimize cellular communication throughout the body as an effective neurogenerative and neuroprotectant. This means that cannabis can help repair, build, and protect neurons. While the War On Drugs attempted to falsely claim that cannabis kills brain cells, science has proven the opposite time and time again. Combined with the fact that CBD does not produce a psychotropic experience, this makes cannabis a powerfully effective holistic aid in stroke recovery for the 75% of senior patients (65+) that are affected by stroke.

How You Can Use Cannabis to Prevent Stroke

It’s important to note that diet and nutrition in addition to responsible cannabinoid consumption may reduce the risk of stroke. The right fruits and vegetables combined with physical exercise help to maintain healthy brain oxygen levels and blood flow. Stroke discussions are very serious and there are a number of other considerations that should be discussed with your healthcare provider should you exhibiting symptoms or fear certain risk factors. And for those who wish to utilize the natural healing properties of cannabis, there are various methods to responsibly consume cannabis of which include juicing raw/decarboxylated cannabis flower in smoothies, smoking or vaping, eating edibles, applying topicals, and more. It’s just a matter of choosing a responsible method of consumption with proper dosing that fits you or your loved ones’ needs. Many patients and consumers have safe and convenient access to the benefits of responsible cannabinoid consumption. And our supporting medical professionals and physicians at James Henry SF advocate for independent patient research to discover the therapeutic power of cannabis, which incorporates optimizing your health through a therapeutic lifestyle.

Visiting a Cannabis Dispensary

The term “cannabis” can be scary to those who have never used the plant before, and the cannabis dispensary can be even more overwhelming. With all of the options, different claims and foreign technical verbiage, an overwhelming trip to the dispensary can prevent the average person from visiting again in the future.

All About Cannabis Dispensaries

Despite the rise of cannabis dispensaries in the US, cannabis dispensaries have been prevalent long before any of us were born. Ancient healers, in countries like Egypt, India and China, distributed cannabis and other natural herbs to their patients in efforts to cleanse them of their impurities. Although the western world has met these dispensaries with some resistance in the past, dispensaries today have taken off and are now creating economic opportunity. In Colorado alone, cannabis dispensaries outnumber Starbucks and McDonalds. And the national market shows no sign of stopping as it is estimated that in 2024 the cannabis consumer market will reach 37.3 billion U.S. dollars. But despite the craze, exactly what is a cannabis dispensary?

True to its name, a cannabis dispensary is simply a store where cannabis is dispensed or sold. In the US, there are two general categories of cannabis dispensaries: Adult-Use and Medicinal.

Adult-Use Dispensaries

Adult-use dispensaries specialize in recreational purposed cannabis. Like restaurants? Well, they do have the menu for you. On this menu, you’re likely to find over 20 types of cannabis strains, with more than 50 edible selections, vaporizers, and other goodies.  Flowers may range from indica to sativa and concentrations can range from BHO to CO2. At an adult-use dispensary, you may be greeted by a store attendant referred to as a budtender. These budtenders should be equipped with the knowledge to help you find what you need. Due to the overwhelming abundance of growing information about cannabis benefits and consumption, we encourage all patients and consumers to take some time and perform their own product and information research.

Medicinal Dispensaries

Medicinal dispensaries specialize in providing cannabis to treat ailments and disease. Therefore, patients may be required to have doctor recommendations. Unlike adult-use dispensaries, medicinal dispensaries may resemble a doctor’s office. And in addition, many medicinal dispensaries must operate as nonprofits. Since medicinal cannabis is not taxed the same as adult-use cannabis, the cost of medicinal cannabis may vary.  Despite this price difference, you may be more likely to find medicinal dispensaries than adult-use ones, as 29 states allow for public medical marijuana and cannabis programs and 17 of these states allow the use of THC for medical reasons in limited situations or as a legal defense.



Identifying and Preparing for a Visit

As with any popular trend, locating services soon follow. Services such as Leafly, the MJ Directory and MerryJane help to highlight legal top dispensaries across the states based on various arrays of metrics. The 25 top rated dispensaries across the US, have names such as Lightshade, Calvia, and Airfield Supply Co. We’ve provided a basic map for your convenience below.

However, before choosing which dispensary to attend, it is recommended to identify what symptoms or concerns you are looking to fix or address; kind of like forming a grocery list before a visit to the supermarket. Once you have identified your needs, you should prepare for the following.

For a medicinal dispensary:

  • Perform research ahead of time

  • Have a valid ID

  • A doctor’s recommendation or material as required by state

  • User must be 18 years or older, with certain exceptions to minors in some states

  • User should be prepared to register with the dispensary

  • User should be prepared to have their purchases tracked

  • Always ask questions

For an Adult-Use dispensary:

  • Perform research ahead of time

  • Have a valid ID

  • User must be 21 years or older in order to make a purchase

  • Always ask questions

Innovation from a Visit

Given all of the intriguing information above, I recall my first experience with a cannabis dispensary, and it didn’t go as planned. Upon entering, the budtender asked for my medical card to process my admission and after that, access was granted for me to venture behind the gatekeeper. Upon entering, I was introduced to a variety of options to pick from, some of which I’d never heard of at the time. The range expanded from topicals, to tinctures, to rubs, to bath balm, to vape pens, and more.  At the time, I had no idea what THC, CBN, cannabinoid ratios, C02, BHO, and Carrier Oils meant; and despite this variety of selection, the budtender was unable to help me as thoroughly, due to the limited amount of time that one could stand in a busy dispensary line with other customers patiently awaiting service. Therefore, my initial trip to the dispensary could have easily turned into a hassle which could have been avoided with a little more research. However, from this experience stemmed the inspiration for James Henry SF, an easily understood lifestyle brand that offers relief for any part of the day with an essence of variety to address various needs.

From my unique experience at the dispensary long ago, my team and I created simple, but effective formulations to harness the trip to a dispensary in one go. We’ve developed products that take the guesswork out of your dispensary search, allowing you to take back your day. 

Developing a CBD & THC Consumption Lifestyle That Fits Your Needs

As cannabis continues to be legalized across the US, how will you identify the cannabis best for your needs or differentiate between its many uses? The first step in this array of questions is to of course perform research, and we’re here to help you with that.

This post will help you to understand the basics of CBD, THC, and CBD: THC ratios, as well as help you understand when each solution is optimal for use during different parts of the day as well as which product is a best-fit to help relieve various symptoms.


Cannabinoids are chemical compounds secreted by cannabis flowers that, in previous times, were thought to have no primary role in a plant's development. However, it is now hypothesized that these cannabinoids act to defend the plant's immune system from outside intruders. When consumed, cannabinoids imitate the body’s natural endocannabinoids, which are crucial to maintaining our internal wellbeing.  They function to mediate communication between the body’s cells but have different effects based on their binding receptors. Two examples of primary cannabinoids are CBD and THC. CBD provides medicinal benefits whereas THC creates psychological effects that produce short-term feelings of euphoria, nostalgia, and other associative benefits. Below is a wheel documenting the effects of CBD and THC.


Waking Up With CBD

Imagine the caffeinated indulgence of a freshly brewed cup of coffee, minus the jitters, with a side of calmed nerves. In small amounts, CBD can create an energizing effect, which is ideal for the morning hours. And as the most active cannabinoid out of 113 cannabinoids, CBD has been shown to be a non-psychoactive substitute for caffeine cravings. Medicinally, CBD has been proven to have neurogenic and neuroprotective effects and further research suggests that CBD is safe even at varying dosages.

CBD can also serve as an:

Enjoy Your Weekend Leisure with THC

THC binds to receptors within the brain and central nervous system in order to produce euphoric and relaxing effects. Therefore, THC can be a key leisure supplement and multifaceted solution to a good night’s rest. This cannabinoid, and its accompanying profiles, provides effective experiences that are great to relax at home, watch a movie, or listen to your favorite music. THC has also been shown to provide relief for over 23 medical conditions and ailments, be effective in chronic pain management, and most notably, destroy cancer and tumor cells. However, whether consumed as an edible or vaporized, individual responses to THC can vary, and trial and error is best to determine personal limits.

Together They Rise

By combining the positive effects of CBD with the stimulating effects of THC, different benefits can be experienced. The combination of the two can be organized into ratios, CBD: THC. Different ratio amounts of CBD: THC yields different experiences:

As CBD can lessen stimulating effects of THC, a greater ratio of CBD-to-THC produces less stimulation. Therefore, popular demand for recreational use seems to favor ratios with higher THC. Because of this, the typical products in your local dispensary may have THC: CBD ratios as high as 20:1 for flowers and 80:1 for concentrates. Nonetheless, studies have shown that participants experienced more pleasurable effects and less anxiety with the combination of CBD and THC than they felt with THC alone. Therefore, in determining the best dosage, users usually start with the most proportionate 1:1 ratio and alter from there.

Our Use of Cannabinoids

You can now see why we find value in the use of cannabinoids. From their medicinal healing properties to their ability to enhance a good time, we find value in creating whichever experience you choose, just for you. Therefore, we’ve taken the guesswork out of ratio experimentation and have created product lines to fit your needs. Whether you seek to take advantage of the morning CBD energy with our Daytime: Focus product or relax and enjoy social occasions with our Evening: Social product or benefit from the relaxing effects of THC concentration with our Weekend: Retreat product, we’ve formulated the ratio for the optimal time. Join us as we experience the benefits of CBD and THC to create added benefits for the body’s overall well-being.
