Ok thanks! very informative
Hmm...i really should have medical marijuana....i think the reason i did noy yet buy was that there was quite big uncertainty what brand really is
good & effective to buy....becouse it seems generally quite expensive , so i was not just sure what to buy. Can you recommend a good one that can be
buyed from EU ?
It really depends on what your purpose is as to which strains to buy. Sativa strains are high in CBDs, and tend to make you feel more euphoric and
creative and energetic. Indica strains have higher THC levels, and tend to relax and soothe and put you to sleep. The Sativa strains are better for
infections, and things which require the immune system. The Indica strains are more for pain relief, anxiety, and generally calming the mood.
Then there are terpenes! Terpenes are kind of the "flavor" of the bud. I don't remember the latin names now, but there are pine terpenes, and citrus
terpenes, and several others. Sometimes the names of the strain give away the terpenes, so you know "Lemon Kush" is high in citrus terpenes.
Something cool about terpenes is that foods also have terpenes, and combining complementary foods with strains can actually increase their
effectiveness. Such as drinking lemonade with smoking Lemon Kush.
Leafly.com has pretty good descriptions of all kinds of different strains. Many are hybrids of sativa and indica, but there are pure strains too.
For healing a particular condition, smoking may have its place, but I think making an oil with the right strains offers additional benefits. I found
a recipe a couple years ago for making canna oil with coconut oil: How to
make the most potent Cannabis oil. AKA “canna butter”.
If I were making this recipe, I would swap out the soy lecithin for sunflower
lecithin though, because soy is a phytoestrogen, and we have too darn much estrogen in our foods and environment as it is! And especially for women,
too much estrogen causes its own health problems.
