    Default High THC low CBD Skunk Weed Strains

    I have mentioned this several times before throughout many posts, but I think it deserves a post in its own right. It’s the issue of how the natural balance of THC to CBD’s, has been artificially interfered with through mans selective breeding of marijuana. As a general rule the weed that allot of people smoke these days has been selectively bred to have far too much THC and far too little CBD. The problem with this is that too much THC, can have an anxiety/paranoia or psychosis like inducing effect, while the CBD’s which research indicates can actually have an anti anxiety, anti psychotic effect has been bred to a level far below its natural amount. The result been that allot of the newer strains of weed, allot of the stuff in the UK that they call “skunk”, which is not necessarily the actual skunk strain, but just how this new high THC low CBD type of weed has become known, the same kind of stuff that you guys in the USA may call the "chronic", is far more likely to cause mental health problems, than the older lower THC higher CBD type weed. That’s what this whole “it's not your parents pot” campaign is all about.

    If you watch the BBC’s should I smoke dope documentary, you see the two very different experiences the journalist who tries a high CBD lower THC dose and a high THC no CBD dose has. And when given a standard psychosis evaluation test, on the lower THC higher CBD dose she scores no significant change, on the higher THC no CBD dose she score positively psychotic.

    This new type of weed is far from natural, it’s a result of mans direct interference with its breeding and the way it is grown.



    So when you pick up that really potent high THC low CBD marijuana, that everybody seems to be smoking these days, that’s absolutely loaded with crystals from all the massive amounts of THC, sure it may have much more of a kick, but it may have allot more undesirable effects also. Weed with more THC and less CBD can equal more mental health problems.

    Of course there will always be exceptions such as super strong hash dating back from god knows when and some breeders who do produce higher CBD strains but they aren’t necessarily what the majority of people either were in the past or are consuming now and what I have just mentioned does seem to be a rather worrying general trend of how it is now.

    Smoking skunk or high THC weed makes me feel edgy.

    Weed has been ruined by the way it has been bred, the old stuff was much safer, more natural and a much nicer high.

    Here’s some more info on high THC low CBD weed, it talks about how not only is it more likely to cause mental health problems, but is more likely to affect you cognitive abilities too.

    I'd be glad to volunteer for a test smoking THC and CBD weed. Heck, y'all don't even have to pay me.

    Arrow ahhhh

    that makes so much sense to me, the weed used to be so much better, i see the big problem with it, with an increase of feeling agitated, and the rest that all we know of. hmm very interesting indeed.

    CBD has anti-psychotic potentials. It is even being researched for the treatment of schizophrenia. THC on the other hand is a psychosis inducing molecule. It is the balance of the effect of these two isotopes that gives marijuana its classic effect of relaxing while exiting and altering certain cognitive functions. Furthermore, some of the strongest new varieties of cannabis contain THCv which has been shown to be hallucinogenic (dutch isolator hash is usually high in this). It has got to the point over the last few years (with the haze obsession) that certain strains are not for the casual relaxing smoke; they take, let us say, a little more of a commitment to smoke. Such strains should be smoked responsibly, only by people that are used to the drug or instead, just in smaller amounts. Personally as a seasoned smoker I prefer the original strains, although it has to be said that even they have much higher THC content that that which nature facilitated for herself (northern lights/ skunk #1-11, hindu kush, durban poison) it is just that it has got a little out of hand. All the best newer varieties have a higher CBD content and they are just easier to smoke (cheese, bubble cheese, NYC diesel, blueberry, euphoria). The ultra high THC varieties (G13 haze, AK-47, new hazes in general) are fine when used responsibly (great for cooking with!) but they are not really that great at providing you with a chilled smoke in the evening after a hard day, and are impossible to function properly if smoking them in the day.

    This makes so much sence to me aswell.

    Pot used to be used to relax you. thats what i used it for. It still does that for the most part, but afterwards is when you get edgy.

    Im curious, what about medical marijuana? Is that stuff grown to be better?

    A very good question inthegrinder, medical marijuana has been bread and is grown specifically to be very high in THC, now many pot lovers may refer to this kind of marijuana as “high quality” or better, but if marijuana that’s too high in THC is causing you anxiety and making you feel edgy then it’s exactly this sort of stuff you want to avoid.

    Take care

    Just realized that "better" is not really specific. I would assume that if the government was truely growing medical marijuana to help people, they would make it with less THC, and more CBD. but since there are huge ethical issues with what they do i can see why they would simply make it with more thc.
    But i dont get into the illegal acts of the government.
