Tiger beat was supposed to be 1:1 ratio. It tasted horrible.
High voltage was advertised as more towards a CBD only. It says some phenos are 13 to 1 CBD to THC. But i actually get higher from the HV than the TB, so I didn't get one of the ratios I was looking for.
But even if I did make my own, is there somewhere I could get it tested even though I'm in prohibitionland?
I hear ya good buddy. I grow AC/DC, Har, and Dt. They all have THC which, btw, a necessary component. If I would chose a word for it, it is nitrous oxide for your CBD.
I make mari-pills out of my buds. Dependent on the cap size you use, you can mitigate the "unwanted" high for the lack of a better word. That being said, as THC remains in your system for weeks/months (medical users) all you need to do is keep fuel in your gas tank so to speak. CBD in your system is only used at the cellular level as required.
I'm in correspondence with another mbr here on the medical side of the house, re: a family mbr requires CBD. There is 2 distinct markets here: medical; and recreational and the two are polar opposites. Medical cannabis is in its infancy. My doctor says you guys and your CBDs, thinking it is the cure all for every ailment. There is no .... yadi, yada. What they call 99.9% CBD is pretty much neutered of all the "required" terpinoids" of x, y and z. That treat x,y and z.
I have been using for 2 yrs treating my diabetes. Went from an AIC of 9.3 to 5.1 I told my wife I had forgone my mid day pill and was thinking of taking a cleanse, e.g quit for a week. The wife said you know the outcome. I didn't quit for a week but, onlu took a pill on Sat, none on Sun, and sure enough Mondfay my blood sugar was up. This is amidst taking my normal diabetes meds. Resumed Tues, and all is well again.
If I was to recommend a CBD strain for you that is 20:1, That would be AC/DC. Very little psychedelic effect but, you can feel the tingle of CBD growing through your body.
It is 2 different beasts, and I am sorry, there is a lopt of BS out there. e.g Cw (Charlotte's Web) is less than 3% THC and high in CBD. It doesn't work for me. Yes high in CBD but it aggravates the shit out of me. Why? It was designed to treat Charlotte and ikids/people who suffer from her ailments. My doctor was right in a way. CBD is not the answer to everything. She is right but, she is also wrong. The proper strain will cure what ails you
FWIW, breeders have bred CBD out of strains in support of higher THC. Higher THC increases anxiety and paranoia but, the high is great. It is the terpenes you seek vice a strain. Here is a pic of the marijuana CBD tree. The true one, so I'm told. Anything else are copy cats, because CBD has been bred out. And breeding is done towards x, y z characteristics. Regardless what the rest shows. If it doesn't meeet x, y or z. It gets culled.
The grand daddy of them all is Ringo's gift and Harle Tsu. I will breed those one day! Hope this helps
