Alphabet Aerobics: THC and CBD
Colorado Grow Company Deciphers What All the Letters Mean
There are two main cannabinoids in marijuana plants. First is THC , or tetrahydrocannabinol, the psychoactive compound in cannabis that most people who partake are very familiar with. THC is what you are looking for if you are interested in the brain buzz.
CBD or cannabidiol is the lesser known partner in crime than THC, but is making waves in marijuana news. CBD’s do not have any mind bending properties just 100% therapeutic benefit. The absence of psychoactive properties make CBD ingestion perfect for children or elderly who want the health perks without any head effects. CBD’s are known to counteract anxiety, help with relaxation, are anti-inflammatory, and decrease pain and nausea.

A descendant of Colombian Gold, a Nepali indica, and Thai, and Swiss landrace strains, you can depend on Harlequin to provide clear-headed, alert sativa effects. Unlike most high-CBD strains, Harlequin almost always develops a CBD:THC ratio of 5:2, making this strain one of the most effective out there for treatment of pain and anxiety, as CBD counteracts THC’s paranoia while amplifying its painkilling properties. Flavors can range from earthy musk to sweet mango, but without a doubt, what draws crowds to Harlequin is its ability to relax without sedation, and to relieve without intoxication.”
