  •  Actually the high THC stuff is a more recent (1+ / 0-)

    development created by the criminalization/prohibition of the entire genus of cannabis plants. Plus, cannabinoids don't really have separate medicinal benefits, they create greater medical benefits together than they would separately. The herbal cannabinoids found in cannabis resins are somewhat unique in that they seem work together in concert to produce greater benefit.

      Everything I've seen on this differentiation essentially refers to this "dose" as "hemp-strength". It's useless to most people who need real THC in sufficient quantity in their medicinal marijuana.

      This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

      •  The low CBD concentration strains are not all that (1+ / 0-)

        great either. Without CBD the THC high becomes quite harsh and unpleasant. Both, or more accurately, all the herbal cannabinoids together are necessary for both high quality medicinal and recreational strains. Herbal cannabis is like Buddhism...the middle path is the way to go.
