Is there too much THC in weed nowadays?
Is this lack of CBD one big reason that many people have problems with anxiety and paranoia after smoking weed?
CBD helps balance the experience but I think some people are just more inclined to have anxiety when they smoke.
I get some stuff that is 1:1 THC:CBD and it is definitely a more mellow high. I prefer it for when I want to smoke but still want to actually be able to get something done.
Which strains will give you a decent amount of CBD?
Pennywise seems to be the most common high CBD strain (1:1). Right now my place also has a strain called Moby Dick that is 1:1, and a strain called CBD Therapy that is 1% THC/ 10% CBD.
Um, it isn't so much that the CBD calms you vs. THC escalates your issues. It's actually easier to accomplish something, in my honest opinion, on some strains like Blue Dream, or Jack Herer (however you spell it). So, in other words Sativas can be easier to handle. They (sativas) have higher ratio of THC:CBD, than, say, some indica strains do. You will see. People on here will try to tell you different. They want to push indica for some reason. Don't buy in. It's hype, and nonsense. Indica is great, but it does what is called "couchlock". This does not happen with sativas.
So what does that say about CBD you ask? Well, the ratio of THC:CBD is more even in Indica strain. That doesn't mean the CBD is the active ingredient for "couchlock". It just means that there is some chemistry going on with the indica strain that isn't happening with the sativa strain. Don't believe the posts on the forum. Ask a weed guy at a dispensary from the telephone. After doing this several times, you should be getting at least partial information.
Hope this helps. and that said, it should be known that I don't smoke anymore and haven't in several years. I don't know if they even have Blue Dream anymore. It was a big strain back in the day like 2011 or so.
In my experience, the sativas will make you more excitable, while killing pain... and the indicas will bring you down and make you sleepy.
Never too much THC or CBDs...
Yes, if you go to a depensary website, you can search by CBD percentage. I've found that most contain only trace amounts of CBD 0.07% while the THC will be 20%+
