If you want to grow cannabis, you’ll need to decide if you want it to make you high or get you calm. This is a big decision to make, and you should always be sure to make sure to get it right. If you don’t, then you can make the problem that you’re trying to solve even worse.
- Why it matters
Some breeds of cannabis are designed to make people high. They’re usually the type that you would take after a busy day when you just want to let loose and have a bit of fun.
Our lives can be so boring and so mundane, and we need to escape from all of it. Certain kinds of cannabis can make you super excited, and get you feeling like you’re on top of the world.
Other kinds however, are better for people who suffer from depression or anxiety. They can help you to stay calm.
The essential difference between the two types is the main kind of chemical within the plant.
Cannabis plants that make you feel calm are going to be high in the chemical CBD. This is often used in products with a cannabis leaf on the packet. Even in places where cannabis isn’t legal, products containing CBD are.
Cannabis plants that are there to get you high will contain a lot of THC. This chemical is the main reason why cannabis isn’t legal in a lot of places.
THC is a hallucinogenic drug that can make you feel all sorts of wacky ways.
- Benefits of CBD
It’s not just us weed smokers who say that CBD is a great chemical. Several people within the science community also believe that it can help with a lot of medical issues.
We spoke earlier about how it can help with mental illness such as depression or anxiety, but it helps with other things too!
For example, if you feel pain in a certain part of your body, then CBD can help to soothe this pain. If you’ve got the shakes, then smoking cannabis with a high CBD can relax you, and stop you from shaking.
- Risks of THC
For most of us, using cannabis with a high THC is harmless. It does nothing more than give us some weird and exciting emotions and maybe a few funky visions.
However, in some situations, it can be rather dangerous.
If someone with anxiety takes such a plant, they can become extremely nervous. And in the worst-case scenario, even have a panic attack.
And if you’re a young person, taking THC can affect your brain development. You don’t want to grow up being stupid just because you thought it was cool to try some weed!
When it comes to weed, there are two main types.
The type that makes you high, which has a lot of THC.
And the type that makes you relaxed, which has a lot of CBD.
