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.

How to Use Tinctures

12ml-Tincture

Tinctures are liquids that are intended to be absorbed through the blood vessels in your mouth. For patients who are not able to use inhaled methods of administration, tinctures are a good option for fast acting relief. Tinctures can also be useful for microdosing, when small amounts are taken regularly for continuous relief. Tinctures can be a great method for new patients to get used to the effects of cannabinoids and find the best therapeutic dose. We recommend patients start with a low dose and slowly increase over several days or weeks to find their optimal dosage.
