Can Marijuana Provide Both a High and Relaxation ?

There are many strains of marijuana that are on the market. Each strain of marijuana has both cannabidiol (CBD), and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which are the main parts of the strain. The strains have different ratios of CBD to THC concerning their chemical makeup. A marijuana strain high in CBD is said to be more beneficial for medical purposes, while those higher in THC are more used for recreational purposes. Some of these are evenly matched marijuana strains which will probably give you a little buzz, while still bringing with it benefits concerning medical purposes. The skunk haze marijuana strain is made up of numerous strains that has a fairly even ratio of CBD to THC.

Skunk Haze

Has a 50/50 percentage makeup between indica and sativa

Made from multiple crosses of sativa strains.

CBD: 10%

THC: 6%

Origin

The skunk haze strain was started in the 1970s and is named for both brothers with the last name haze, along with their neighbor which was known as “Sam the skunk man”. When the two strains were put together, it became known as skunk haze. Since the skunk haze strain was made, it has been a genetic pillar of many sativa strains. The original haze strain was put together with four other strains from different places (Mexico,Columbia,India,Thialand), and through these multiple crossings, different haze strains have originated. These include: Neville’s haze, amnesia haze, purple haze, along with other haze strains, all which are THC dominant.

Physical appearance & Growth

The skunk haze strain can be grown either indoors or outside. Appearance wise, it has very fluffy flowers along with bright colored pistils and grows tall. This strain also has either a mint, woody, pine, or citrus smell to it. The time of year for harvest of this plant is fall around September or October and takes around twelve weeks to become fully mature. If you’re considering growing it indoors, this can be done at any time, but you’ll need some equipment in order to get the most out of the plants. 

The exact percentage of CBD or THC will depend on how the plant is grown. Some have been shown to have as high as 15% and 13% THC and CBD respectively. On average, the ratio of CBD to THC is fairly even, with it leaning more towards the CBD on the higher end. If you are considering growing the strain, here are some videos which should help. 

Uses

Any strain of CBD is good for different conditions, and the lower the percentage of THC is, the better the medical benefits will be. The skunk haze strain was made with the intention of having an even amount of both THC and CBD, making it nuteral concerning the benefits that it brings, along with a small calming and euphoric feeling.

Chemical structure & Uses

Since this strain is fairly even concerning the ratio of THC to CBD, it is good to use for conditions such as pain or anxiety, while it also gives the individual a feeling of relaxation and is somewhat energizing. This isn’t for anyone that wants to use marijuana for any type of high feeling or for recreational purposes, but it gives a energetic euphoria. This makes it better for use after a long stressful day, but is good to use any time of the day. Any strain for these purposes should have a higher percentage of THC and lower CBD levels.

Because of the moderate level of CBD (10%) that the skunk haze strain of marijuana has, this gives it a calming effect when ingested, which will help with anxiety, allowing you to maintain focus. Because of the even percentage of THC and CBD, skunk haze is good for daytime use, allowing you to remain functional as opposed to giving you a “high” like a THC dominant strain would.

Effects

The relaxation and relief from stress may be part of why it is helpful with epilepsy and other mental conditions since many times stress by itself can be a trigger for these events to occur. Although the skunk haze strain isn’t overly high in CBD, it may still be an effective strain to use for medical purposes such as epilepsy, or as mentioned previously anxiety or other psychological conditions.

Although enough research has been done in order to see some effect that CBD has on seizure control and a medication has been produced, more research should still be done in order to totally understand how this process works.
