Question: What's a good ratio for CBD and THC for autoimmune disease and inflammation?
What are some examples of autoimmune disease conditions?
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus)
- Multiple sclerosis
- Myasthenia gravis
Answer: When it comes to autoimmune disease and inflammation typically you want about similar amounts of CBD and THC because CBD is an anti-inflammatory and THC is an anti-inflammatory. However, when combined together there's an even greater anti-inflammatory effect because there's what's known as an entourage effect going on. One chemical is enhancing the effect of the other chemical, in this case, the anti-inflammatory effect of CBD is being combined with the anti-inflammatory effect of THC and creating an even greater anti-inflammatory effect.
And for most autoimmune conditions, one of the root causes is inflammation and so that's what you're looking for, about similar amounts. Now here's what I'm gonna tell you, those that reside in states where marijuana products, which tend to have similar amounts of CBD and THC, are available through recreational use, then you can go ahead and just purchase these products at a medical marijuana dispensary. Those that reside in states where marijuana is available for medical use, again you can go ahead and purchase these products at a medical marijuana dispensary.
However, if you do not have access to either medical or recreational marijuana products then remember you do have access to CBD products, granted it's not going to have a similar amount of THC to CBD, but remember CBD in and of itself is an anti-inflammatory you can go ahead and start with that, see how you do and if it works great if it doesn't then you do know that you do need some amount of THC.
