Cannabis strains come with two main active ingredients, and they are known as CBD and THC. Both CBD and THC have a significant amount of health benefits to offer, but one main aspect that sets them apart is that THC is a psychoactive element, whereas CBD is not.
Being the psychoactive element means that THC delivers the “high” effect. It is the compound that takes you to a loopy, dreamy, or to an altered reality world. Cannabis strains that contain high levels of THC are known to help with a number of health conditions.
These health benefits include, but are not limited to:
- Decreasing inflammation
- Alleviating pain
- Reducing nausea
- Improving muscle control difficulties
- Increasing appetite
- Offering a boost in energy
- Improving one’s mood
- Improving creativity and focus
- Relieving symptoms of depression and stress
Today, the number of cannabis strains on the market is vast. They are usually placed in three categories: Sativa, Indica, and Hybrid. Sativa is generally energizing and uplifting and is best suited for morning and daytime use. Indica is usually relaxing (and sedative in some cases) and it goes well for evening and nighttime use. Hybrid refers to the marijuana plants that contain approximately the same amount of Sativa and Indica.
So, in this article, we’ll present to you a couple of cannabis strains that contain some of the highest levels of THC.
