Introduction

People who use cannabis often experiment with different strains, trying to find the one that works best for them. But have you ever tried mixing CBD and cannabis flower together? In the past few years, cannabis consumers have learned about the many health benefits of combining CBD oil and flower. Find out 5 reasons why and how you should combine flower with CBD, and how it can be beneficial for your body and mind.

Combine Flower With CBD And Get More Benefits than Alone

CBD and THC are both cannabinoids, and when they’re mixed together, they have a synergistic effect. This means that the two of them together provide more benefits than either one alone. The cannabinoid CBD can counteract some of the negative effects of THC. For example, some people might get anxious after using marijuana or feel paranoid or panicked when they smoke it. This is one reason CBD comes in handy! It can help reduce anxiety by counteracting the effects of THC on your brain receptors so you don’t feel as anxious or panicky.

Also, CBD and THC are different cannabinoids, and vitamins differ one from another. For example, Vitamin D and Vitamin C offer different benefits just like THC and CBD. So taking them together gives you the “full entourage” effect.

Enhancing the Entourage Effect

The entourage effect is a phenomenon in which different cannabinoids and terpenes interact with one another to produce more powerful effects. Much like a multivitamin taking more at once gives you more benefits than single vitamins alone. One example of this is when CBD—which has been shown to reduce anxiety and inflammation—when combined with THC and other cannabinoids and terpenes, CBD produces a stronger anti-inflammatory effect than it does alone.

So how do you know if your combination contains enough ingredients to achieve the entourage effect? RVDCBD uses broad-spectrum tincture which means, we capture all of the cannabinoids available minus THC. To ensure you’re getting the full spectrum, which means all the cannabinoids, you can check out RVDCBD’s COAs updated annually.

Enjoy Full Spectrum Effects When You Combine Flower With CBD

When you’re smoking or vaping flower, you’re only getting the effects of one cannabinoid. With CBD-infused flower, that’s not the case: You get all the benefits of both CBD and THC in each hit. This is a good thing if you want to experience both mind-altering and body-relaxing effects at once—but it’s even better for people who don’t like feeling too high. By taking advantage of the full spectrum of cannabinoids in your body, you may find yourself less likely to overdo it on either end of the spectrum. Simply, CBD prevents you from feeling any negative side effects such as dizziness or anxiety (which often come with THC).

Essentially, smoking cannabis with CBD balances out your high. Studies have shown that when combined together in certain ratios, these two chemicals can create an effect similar to “the perfect buzz.” If one has too much THC while another has too little CBD, they’ll cancel out each other’s positive effects and make things worse than they need to be.

Creating the Perfect Dosing Ratio

When you are deciding how to mix CBD and flower, it’s important to get the right ratio. The two compounds have very different effects and mixing them can be tricky. With cannabis flower, THC is psychoactive while CBD is not. This means that a high THC percentage will give you a more heady buzz while low THC strains provide more of a relaxed body feeling; you might feel like your limbs are heavy.

Because of this, if you’re looking for an experience with fewer mental side effects (like anxiety or paranoia), then choosing a low-THC strain with lots of CBD could be what you need.

But if you’re after an uplifting high without any major side effects then going for high-THC strains might be better suited to your needs!

Getting More CBD for Your Buck

When you’re looking to get the most bang for your buck, CBD is an expensive ingredient. You may be able to find a great deal on cannabis flower, especially if you subscribe to our newsletter here. In general, CBD costs more than flower buds do. Why? Because it takes multiple plants to make a little CBD.

If you’re trying to take advantage of the benefits of both cannabinoids—namely, the high from THC and the calming effects from CBD—it’s important that you use less flower. This can mean saving money by getting smaller amounts and trying out different strains with different effects. If mixing your own products seems like too much work, don’t worry. Dropping a few drops of tincture into your ground-up flower before you roll it, is all it takes.

Having More Fun Smoking

CBD is a naturally occurring compound in cannabis, and it’s one of the non-psychoactive components that can help treat pain and anxiety. When you smoke or vaporize CBD-infused products, you’ll enjoy them more because the experience isn’t as harsh on your throat and lungs—and you’ll likely want to smoke less while feeling just as high. Mixing CBD with flower is safer and healthier than smoking straight flower alone. Mixing CBD with flower is a great option for getting high without sacrificing quality or potency—especially if you use vaporizers instead of traditional pipe or joint methods!
