I don’t know, call me crazy, but pure CBD gets me “higher” than THC + CBD, and without the THC, I also get much less medicinal effect. I would much rather have a balance of cannabinoids. Of course “high” is such a childish and unprofessional term anyways – marijuana doesn’t really get you high. Alcohol gets you high, tobacco gets you high.. cannabis (with a properly balanced cannabinoid profile) just gets your mind and body back in sync by modulating one’s endocannabinoid system, which is presumably out of balance. The only time I’ve truly gotten “high” off real cannabis is when I go a long time without using it and then use too much.
I’ve found that CBN in conjunction with CBD, however, is almost as effective as THC-containing cannabis. Aromatic terpenes seem to play a role as well. Don’t get me wrong, effectively legalizing non-THC cannabinoids is a great first step, but we will never truly be free to properly medicate until whole plant cannabis (both low-THC hemp strains and THC-laden “marijuana” strains) is legal.
