Many veterans have found high CBD strains such as AC/DC to be very effective in helping them cope with the crippling effects of PTSD. CBD works to counteract the psychotropic effects of ingesting too much THC. As such, if you find yourself “too medicated/high” at any time, you may want to consider upping your CBD intake.
Professor Snook’s Canna Salvation is an alcohol-free tincture made from organic olive oil and organic cannabis. This specific tincture from Prof. Snook’s includes 148mg of cannabinoids per bottle with a CBD : THC ratio of 20:1.
How to Use a Cannabis Infused Tincture Therapeutically
The company recommends the tincture be administered at a dose of 1 drop per 25 lbs of body weight to begin with, increasing the dose slowly until relief is found. The bottle’s label says 5 drops is a beneficial dose, so I guess Prof. Snook’s assumes everyone weighs 125 pounds.
Using the correct dose of cannabis is the single most important factor in having a successful therapeutic relationship with cannabis. Unlike most medications, cannabis cannot be prescribed at a certain quantity and frequency based on body weight and age. We all have a unique internal chemistry, and the cannabinoid system is very complex, so different dosages will be best for different people. With cannabis it is important to remember that for most people, less is more. Using too much cannabis will often decrease its effectiveness and increase the unwanted side effects. In fact, anecdotal evidence/studies have shown that patients tend to feel more energized and clear-headed when medicating with low doses of THC as opposed to high doses — although effects will vary from person to person.
After decades of growers aiming to boost THC percentages in their crops, many producers have switched to focusing on harvesting CBD-rich strains because of the increasing demand by medical users. For those unfamiliar with cannabidiol (CBD), the compound has many medicinal benefits without the “high” that some patients do not desire. This makes products containing CBD appealing to patients who are looking for an alternative to their current meds, which often have opiate-like effects. The AC/DC strain of cannabis has become well known in recent years for its unique cannabinoid profile and record-setting CBD content.
We craft only with choice, high-CBD cannabis strains grown in the earth and under the sun, in biodiverse outdoor gardens. These farming methods ensure our flowers are rich and nutritionally complete, and their complex chemical components fully expressed, offering the full potential of cannabis as medicine.
Our gentle extraction process captures the unique effects of CBDA and THCA. These are the naturally acidic form of the cannabinoids, and offer a different range of benefits than their “carboxylated” brethren, without the psychoactive, intoxicating effects.
Our products honor nature’s image and the synergy of the whole plant. Rather than looking only at ratios and potency, we focus on preserving the natural, full spectrum of therapeutic cannabinoids and the authentic potency profile of our cultivars.
We take a whole-food approach to wellness. and use only premium extra-virgin olive oil as a base for our cannabis extraction. We never add flavors, sweeteners or preservatives. Our commitment is to keeping it simple and natural, with each ingredient representing the best of its breed.
