I don't get negative effects from CBD, but I think CBD has turned into a "trend", same kind of thing with "gluten free" people who aren't celiacs. People say cbd is medical and thc is recreational, and I just hate that concept. Because for me, CBD only helps MILD stuff, and only a few things. Like MILD anxiety, on the surface headaches, muscle aches. It doesn't do anything for chronic pain, it doesn't do anything for my stomach, it doesn't help depression or bad anxiety, it doesn't help PTSD. Do you know what DOES help all those things? THC. Granted, I don't need a lot of it, but it still helps. I do enough to be "medicated" which to me means relief of symptoms. I only get stoned accidentally, usually by edibles. Stoned to me meaning, beyond relief of symptoms and interfering with the things around you such as you're not in as much control with your imagination, motor function, focusing, etc. Being stoned however can increase pain, which is why I try to steer away from that kind of dosage. I saw a study that said CBD alone will only treat acute symptoms, but for chronic patients they need THC in order for cannabis to work. Even if just a little bit. However, of course like all medicine, this goes for people who are able to take cannabis/thc. If you have chronic anxiety that THC seems to extenuate, or bipolar, or there's even some blood disease that makes THC seem deadly in people (it's actually not in them, but it looks that way by vomiting, sweats, feeling extremely uncomfortable or pain, etc.)Then of course, that statement doesn't involve those people. For the life of me I can't remember which blood disease.
I totally agree with you! THCA is my thing. Normally the strains I get are very high in THCA and medium in THC. If I can, I try to stay away from any CBD. I have noticed that I can handle specific strains, but it's hit or miss.
Thank you so much for the info!
