CBD is the one that helps most with everything. Reducing stress is the biggest part. It just seems to take that background stress and anxiety level down to where I can function better. It also reduces physical stress in that it relives arthritis pain in old injuries and helps with an issue with my medication where one of my meds has a diabetic effect about 4 hours after ingesting it. It also seems to be a cushion for stressful events - a buffer. It lets me recover more easily.
Balanced - Equal parts CBD and THC will modify and reduce the high effect, that's why most recreational product has almost no CBD content. However in the same way that whole foods are good, whole plant is good too. There are 200+ compounds in cannabis besides CDB and THC and in the same way phyto nutrients occur in food, it is believed that some of the phyto components are the most beneficial.
THC - whole different thing. Mostly, for trying to sleep. Usage varies. I find it helps with intrusive thoughts as well. It was the hard part of the solution to figure out too. The right solution took a while to find. There is a simple rule to follow though.
The goal of any medication is to use the absolute least you can to alleviate your symptoms. Over time cannabis usage can creep up until it becomes a problem. That's why you will need a cannabis doctor, a plan, and you need to track usage. Fanatically track usage.
Keep a journal, make notes in your diary, on your calendar, whatever but track what you use, when you use and effects. Make it a habit from the beginning. Review your usage and effects regularly. Weigh for yourself if there is help or hurt.
That is interesting, thanks for sharing, do you know from which study/studies this information came from?Studies say that heavy weed smoking during years (I think I've read 6 to 8), shrinks the brain, the grey matter. To compensate this, the brain creates a lot of fine connections that non-users don't have. After a while (unspecified), they shrink too.
The section of the previous post contains elements of the truth skewed the wrong way. You mind does create many many extra connections during development. Then there is a natural process at maturity called pruning that removes the ones you don't need. That and everyone's brain shrinks. It's a natural part of aging...That is interesting, thanks for sharing, do you know from which study/studies this information came from?
