You have to know what ratio suits you best. And the only way to do this is to sample some strains.

The expansion and growth of the legalized marijuana market in several countries imply that cannabis smokers are free to choose from several options of cannabis. People that procure their products from the right legal sources tend to notice the THC and CBD content percentage stated clearly on the product.

In addition to the CBD to THC ratio, other key details are also stated. However, some consumers have no idea of the usefulness of the CBD to THC ratio, and the few that do tend not to pay attention to it unless they have to.

Most times, the consumers that pay the most attention to the ratio are the medical patients being prescribed cannabis-based medication. So, what then is the CBD to THC ratio, why is its important, and what is the best CBD:THC ratio?

Brief Description of THC

THC is short for Delta9-Tetrahydrocannabinol. It is the most popular cannabinoid in cannabis plants and products. In the raw and suppressed form of cannabis, THC is present as an acidic compound.


The psychoactive high induced whenever cannabis is consumed can be attributed to this compound. This reaction happens because THC binds to a receptor in the nervous system. Hence, causing an alteration in the user’s cognitive and behavioral ability.

Brief Description of CBD

CBD is short for cannabidiol. It is the second most famous compound in cannabis. it is not responsible for any form of psychoactivity when ingested. Cannabidiol is responsible for countering the psychoactive effects of the THC compound.

The distinct feature of CBD is that it influences the endocannabinoid system (ECS). For this alone, it has a high potential of being medically beneficial to the human body. Research is still being carried out to figure out the scope of its usefulness.
