Are you considering using marijuana as a form of medication 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 of marijuana will best serve my needs ?’ There are two main parts to the marijuana plant. These are what are known as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). 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 recreational but some medical purpose’s as well is called Forbidden Fruit. Here we will go over where it comes from, how its used, the effects, and what it can be used for. Ready to learn more ? Let’s get started.
Indica: 70 %
Sativa 30 %
THC: 23 %
This strain has a higher level of THC (26%) when compared to the level of CBD (1%) making it a strain that is good for recreational purpose’s. Even though the CBD levels in this strain are lower when compared to the THC, the CBD still has some effects as well. This strain is a hybrid between two higher THC strains as well ( Cherry pie & Tangie) which is part of what gives the strain its name. In some cases, the levels of THC seen in this strain have been higher than 26 %, making it probably one of the highest strains in the level of THC. Putting these two strains together, helps bring out the best in each concerning the effects that this strain has. The strain is grown and put out by a company called Symbiotic Genetics. Different strains of marijuana can be used for different purpose’s whether it is medical or recreational. So what are some good uses for this strain ?
Since this strain is higher in THC as opposed to CBD, it is probably used for more recreational purpose’s, but these effects from the THC have been shown to be good to use for multiple medical purposes as well. The Forbidden Fruit strain is used for conditions such as depression, appetite loss, insomnia, as well as pain. This strain may also help with epilepsy or seizures as well, but this would probably depend on the individuals’ response to the strain. Since stress is a trigger for many individuals’ with some conditions mentioned such as anxiety, depression, and many time seizures, the level of relaxation and uplift that this strain brings could explain why it is of such assistance. 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 felt and stress relief could be of assistance for either condition. More research should be done to scientifically show how this exactly works, since these effects are based only 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 THC that it has. The rate at which these effects take place is at a much slower rate when compared to other strains which can have an immediate effect. The effects start out with a tingling of the head and neck. This gradually passes throughout the body and is felt all over. This in turn then puts you in a complete state of euphoria and happiness, increasing your mood and overall state of mind. Unfortunately, this strain also ends up putting you in a “knockout” condition. This is normally called couch lock by those familiar with using strains of marijuana. This is why you should always be around a couch or bed when using this strain, allowing you to sit or lay down until these effects wear off. For this strain specifically, it is normally reported as giving the individual a complete knockout, putting you in a state of deep sleep, but the level of intensity may depend on the individuals’ experience in using marijuana. These effects have also been reported as being long-lasting, so it is best to use this strain when you know you have nothing to do. Since the strain has higher amounts of both physical and mental effects, it is good for multiple uses, and can be of benefit to almost anyone, but who would benefit the most from using this strain ?
Who Should Use the strain ?
As previously mentioned, this strain has a higher level of THC when compared to the CBD, bringing with it a level of high, euphoria, and an increase in mood followed by a deep sense of relaxation. The level of relaxation is intense enough to decrease ones’ level of focus, and the amount of THC in this strain is higher when compared to other strains. Because of the intensity of the effects which are seen concerning relaxation and euphoria resulting in an almost sedated state, along with the rate at which these effects take place, it is not advised for the beginner to use this strain. The intensity of these effects seen can be handled much easier by the experienced and may not be as intense when compared to anyone just beginning. Anyone just experimenting with using different strains is better off starting out with a strain that is on the lighter side concerning the level of effects that it has. Also, anyone experienced that thinks they may benefit in treating any of the previous conditions mentioned such as depression, appetite loss, insomnia, or any acute or chronic pain may want to try this strain.
When should it be used ?
Since this strain brings with it an intense level of relaxation and euphoria and the effects take place rather quickly, it is best to use this strain either just prior to laying down for bed, especially if you suffer from insomnia, or when you know you have a lot of free time and have nothing to do. It is also advised to use this strain not be used in the morning or daytime unless you know you’ll be at home and won’t be going out. For any individual regardless of your level of experience, unless you know that these effects will not take over and you’re able to control them, it should not be used while in public. There are numerous ways that any strain of marijuana can be used, so what is the best way to use this strain ?
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 as oils may be effective, this is not the same as when smoking or vaping. When using this strain, you should expect to experience a very intense flavor of berry and lemon, as well as this plus a scent of pine and kush with the smell. The level of sweetness and cherry like flavor and tropical aroma also leave an after-taste and is where the strain gets its name from. Most of the time, you’ll probably purchase the product from a grower, but if you choose to use marijuana in the form of buds for smoking and you know you’ll be using it for a while, you may want to consider growing it yourself since it may be less expensive in the long run.
