Today was a great day at the shop. The weather was perfect, the stoners were happy, and the shop was radiating positive energy. The day slowly progressed with a lot of CBD related questions. It seems as if the only reason some of the customers stopped by today is to ask questions about the cannabinoid called Cannabidiol (CBD). What is CBD, you ask? In brief, CBD is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid that provides most of the benefits that THC (the stuff that gets you high) has. If I ever need any additional information about this amazing cannabinoid, check out Project CBD.
Giving a CBD Hybrid Tincture a Try
Because of all of the CBD related questions, I decided to pick some up myself. I ended the day by purchasing a 1:1, hybrid, tincture. Each dose was 5mg/5mg of THC and CBD. I love researching what the additional ingredients in the product will do and how they will affect my body/mind. All factors must be considered when trying to find products that will work well with your body chemistry.
CBD products come in an array of different consumption methods such as vapes, edibles, and tinctures. I personally love tinctures, because of the convenience it provides. With most tincture bottles, the infusion company will provide a dropper with a specific dose of the product. I love the exact-ish doses because it makes it easier for me to find more products that have the perfect amount of CBD because too much CBD gives me too much stimulation, and I’m already overstimulated as is, so I use CBD to try to aid, and maintain a pretty relaxed demeanor.
Testing a New Method: CBD in My Diffuser
My experiment for the night was using the tincture in my diffuser. I was trying to find out if I could get high from the vapor. I did a 10 mg dose of the 1:1 tincture in my diffuser, but I did not feel like I was having any psychoactive effects from the THC, but I did feel relaxed and very sleepy once the vapor filled my room. The tincture was equal parts Indica and Sativa (hybrid)/CBD, but my body was affected by the Indica a lot heavier.
After everything was said and done, I slept like a rock and had a hard time waking up the next morning. I would most definitely recommend dosing your oil diffuser, just to try it and see how it affects your room’s atmosphere. I can’t wait to try with an Indica strain next time.
