Are you considering using marijuana as a form of medicine and unsure of what you should use ? If this is the case, it can be hard to choose the correct strain that will fit your needs the best. You’re probably asking yourself that question ‘which strain will best serve my needs ?’ Each strain of marijuana has both cannabidiol (CBD), and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which are the main parts of the strain. Each of these have different effects on the individual. From what you hear in the media, it is said that the high CBD marijuana strains assist better with medical conditions than THC. This is not always the case since there have been reports of many positive effects of the THC. There are also some strains high in CBD meant specifically for medical use. One of these strains which is good for medical purposes is called 3D CBD. Here we’ll cover where it comes from, how its used, the effects, and what it can be used for. Ready to learn more ? Let’s get started.
THC: 8 %
CBD: 18 %
The strain has a higher level of CBD (10-18%) when compared to the level of THC (6-8%), giving it a 5:8 ratio of THC to CBD. This makes it a strain that is good for medical purposes, while still having some recreational effects shown from the THC as well. This strain is a hybrid strain made from at least two different marijuana strains. Since the growers of this strain (Leafs by Snoop) have kept the strain secret, it is not known the exact makeup of this strain concerning the strains it comes from, It is thought to be part of what is known as the haze strain, along with a skunk and Afghani strain. With a higher level of CBD when compared to THC, this strain is good for medical purposes, but the THC also has its benefits as well. So what are some good uses for this strain ?
The 3D CBD strain is great to use for either mental or physical conditions. These include: pain, inflammation, insomnia, arthritis, depression, anxiety, seizures, and any acute or chronic physical pain. Since mental and emotional stress may be a trigger for many individuals with some conditions mentioned such as depression or anxiety, the level of relaxation that this strain brings could explain why it may help with these conditions. For the individual with seizures, whether it is actually epileptic and of a chemical imbalance, or what is known as a non epileptic event, the relaxation and stress relief felt could be of assistance for either condition. More research should be done to scientifically show how this exactly works, since these effects are based on testimony of individuals which have experience in using the strain. The levels of THC and CBD in different strains will determine the level of effects that are seen, with the specific strains. So what are some effects that this strain has ?
What effects does it have ?
When using this strain, it is good for its effects that come from the levels of CBD that it has. The THC will also bring with it certain effects as well. You should start by feeling a very happy and mellow state of mind, along with a sense of focus and creativity. This comes from the level of THC that is in the strain. The initial high that is felt occurs at a slower rate than in other strains, giving the individual time to enjoy other effects, and the taste of the strain. The extended amount of focus that this provides also allows you to be social with others and is a good conversation starter. With these mental effects, a high pressure will also be felt prior to the CBD coming into play. While the effects of the THC such as focus are still there, the CBD brings with it a deep sense of relaxation, relieving you both of mental stress and any physical pains that you may have. This relief brings with it a release of emotions along with a mellowing out, while experiencing your own space or universe. Due to the deep sense of relaxation, this may require some individuals to sit down, allowing the effects to decrease, but this will probably depend on the individual and their level of use. So who would benefit best from using this strain ?
Who Should Use the strain ?
As previously mentioned, this strain has a higher level of CBD when compared to the THC, but you still get a psychoactive experience from the THC that is there. Because of the lighter effects of the THC seen in this strain, although you may experience a high, it is a strain that is good for anyone just beginning to experiment with different strains. Also, for any individual needing a strain with a higher level of CBD for its medical use, or just for the relaxation, as well anyone that wants a light high or euphoria, this strain is good. The strain would not be of benefit for anyone wanting to experience an intense high or level euphoria though. Regardless of your level of experience, each individual should listen to their body in order to know when you’ve had enough. No strain of marijuana should be used unless you first consult and are cleared by your doctor to do so. There are also many times and places to use different strains depending on the effects. When is the best time to use this strain ?
When should it be used ?
Since this strain can bring with it a sense euphoria and a nice feeling of relaxation, the strain is great to use during the daytime, evenings or at nighttime. The nice thing about this strain is that the level of intensity of the effects still allows you to go about your every day life while being productive. This may depend on the individual though, since it may have a more intense effect on anyone inexperienced. Whether you want to relax mentally and be able to focus, or physically after a hard day at work, this strain is good to use while at home. The strain is also good to use at social gatherings since you have an increase in focus, or at night due to the relaxation that it brings. This will also assist with insomnia as well due to the relaxation. The fact that the strain can be used at any time during the day is good, but you should still probably stay at home until you know the effects that it has on you.
How to use it
There are many forms of CBD and THC which come from the marijuana plant. This includes: smoking, vaping, capsules, and oils. The best way to get the total effect of either the CBD or THC of the plant is to use it in its original form through smoking or vaping. Although the capsules which a sold in oil form may be effective, this is not the same as when smoking or vaping. When using this strain, you should expect to experience a woody, earthy and even tea like smell and taste. This will be quite strong possibly due to the skunk haze, so it may be best to be used outdoors. Unfortunately each strain comes with some negative effects as well, and with this strain it may include things such as a dry mouth, or dry eyes. Most of the time, you’ll probably purchase the product from a grower, but if you choose to use marijuana in the form of smoking and you know you’ll be using it for an extended period, you may want to consider growing it yourself since it may be less expensive in the long run.
Raising the strain
For anyone just beginning to grow their own strains of marijuana, this strain is not hard to grow, but since the breeders of this strain (leafs by Snoop) keep things secret, you may be required to purchase a clone of the seed if you can find one. If you are able to find the seeds needed, there are certain factors that should be considered. These mainly concern the environment in which it’s grown. The strain can be grown either indoors or outside, but if you choose to grow the strain outdoors, it may take longer than if it was grown inside. This is because it requires specific factors such as desiring a more humid and warmer climate. This being the case, if you decide to grow it outdoors, the harvest time is late September to early October. Since the strain takes around ten weeks to grow, it should be planted around mid July. In comparison, if it is grown indoors, this can be done at any time of the year just so the environment is kept warmer (70-80 degrees F) and more humid.
The ratios of THC to CBD for the 3D CBD strain of marijuana is higher in CBD (18%) than it is in THC (8%), but it can be used for both medical and recreational purposes. Medically it helps with things such as depression, chronic pain, seizures, insomnia, and other conditions. The strain also has a psychotic effect brought on by the THC, and a deep feeling of sedation or relaxation as well from the CBD. For many individuals the intensity of the relaxation felt may be higher than for others, and due to the intensity of relaxation it brings, one should be aware of their reactions. The 3d CBD strain can also be used any time during the day, and is great for anyone that wants to have a relaxing and euphoric feeling while still being able to perform every day tasks.
