If you’ve been following Lunchbox Alchemy on Instagram, Facebook, or our blog, you’ll notice that we’ve been touting the benefits of full-spectrum oil and the Entourage Effect for quite some time now. With 1:1 Tangos, the latest addition to our edible line, and the first to provide a balanced cannabinoid profile, you can learn by doing! Each Tango contains 5mg THC and 5mg CBD. This full-spectrum CBD oil is extracted from the popular cultivar Medi Haze grown by Hifi Farms.
Full-Spectrum Cannabis Oil Provides the Most Cannabinoids
In our last post, we talked about the definition and applications of Full-Spectrum Oil. Containing a broad range of cannabinoids and terpenes, full-spectrum oil provides the most optimal results, which is why it’s what we use in each and every one of our edibles. Cannabis contains two main cannabinoids – Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD), each containing valuable and distinct properties on their own, generating different effects on your body.
Cannabidiol and Tetrahydrocannabinol
Or, CBD and THC.
THC is known for its intoxicating effects, but is also highly regarded for its anti-emetic, anti-inflammatory, and analgesic properties. While CBD is also said to relieve pain and inflammation, it is well-known for reducing or stopping seizures altogether, managing anxiety and regulating mood and sleep cycles.
While each individual cannabinoid’s therapeutic properties are distinct, they also provide synergistic effects that enhance the efficacy of others. The molecules in THC and CBD react differently on cannabinoid receptors in the brain. THC binds with the CB1 receptor, and CBD binds with the CB2 receptor, which just so happens to block the CB1 receptors from fully binding with THC. This doesn’t eliminate the effectiveness of the THC, but it can reduce the psychoactive effects to a certain extent, making CBD a safety net in the event you’ve consumed a little too much THC.
Since some people might find the psychoactive effects of THC to be a bit overwhelming, a great way to still obtain the maximum results without an unintended journey into the spirit world, is to use ratios of THC and CBD to find a desired balance. Equal parts THC and CBD have been known to fight insomnia, chronic pain, neurological disorders, as well as promoting tranquility and euphoria. With a reduction in the stronger effects of THC, a 1:1 balanced ratio is well suited for a large audience of cannabis consumers, whether medicinal or recreational.
