CANNABINOID PROFILING SERVICES

Cannabinoid profiling enables a patient to determine their accurate dosage and desired chemical ratios for some of the key components found in medicinal cannabis.  By determining what weight percent of each component is best for a particular patient, the desired medicinal relief can be achieved more effectively as opposed to just considering the strain name.  A key indicator of the potential effects provided by a particular strain is the THC/CBD ratio.  CBD is known to modulate the effects of THC and typically leads to a more calming and overall smooth response with less potential for rapid heart rates and other discomfort sometimes garnered from too much THC alone.  Knowing the weight percentage of the cannabinoids can help patients determine more accurately how much material is best for each individual’s preferred dose and will ultimately lead to a more physiologically effective and cost effective use of the medicine.
