Prime Alternative Treatment Center will produce a multitude of cannabis based medicines in varying ratios of cannabinoid (CBD:THC) and terpenoids, which are available in medically driven dosage forms. In addition, all of the products will come in ranges of potency, starting off on the very low end of the spectrum (5 mg of THC), and incrementally increasing to what would be considered strong dosages, in order to ensure there is a product that is comfortable for all patients needs and tolerances. Prime ATC produced medicines will be tested for their cannabinoid and terpenoid profiles, contaminants of any type, which specifically include pesticides and heavy metals. Medicinal products which do not meet the strict standards set forth by the Department of Health and Human Services will not be made available for sale.Continue reading “Cannabis Product Choices”
Find Your CBD:THC Ratio
Therapeutic cannabis is personalized, meaning not every product best suits all patients. The right treatment regimen depends on the person and condition being treated. For instance, CBD (Cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) share an interdependent relationship, working together to increase one another’s therapeutic benefits. THC is psychoactive, and depending on dosage, can produce euphoric or dysphoric effects. CBD is a non-psychoactive compound, and may reduce or neutralize the psychoactivity of THC.
A patient’s sensitivity to THC and its psychoactive effects is a key factor in determining the appropriate dosages and ratios of CBD and / or THC. So an increased ratio of CBD-to-THC often means fewer mental effects. Prime ATC offers many options for finding a CBD:THC ratio that helps you to control the dosing and potency you need.Continue reading “Find Your CBD:THC Ratio”
Cannabinoids are a group of various chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant which act on the cannabinoid receptors located on cells which repress the release of certain neurotransmitters in the brain. They are similar to endocannabinoids (which are produced naturally in humans and animals) in shape and behavior. This encourages them to bond with the cannabinoid receptors in our nervous system, producing the cannabis plant’s known effects and a variety of other medical benefits and applications which are still being researched and understood today. Specifically, cannabinoids are a group of terpenophenolic compounds produced by the Cannabis sativa L. plant.
