Everyone has their own personal reasons for wanting to transition from THC to CBD. One benefit of CBD is you can experience all the positives, such as relief from inflammation and anxiety, without worrying about the psychoactive effects – also known as “getting high.”

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the rising star of the cannabis world, especially for those hoping to use cannabis as medicine or as a supplement. There have been various studies and research done that show CBD can aid in the treatment of:

  • Inflammation
  • Convulsions
  • Muscle tension
  • Psychosis
  • Memory problems
  • Hypotension
  • GI Motility
  • Pain associated with cancer

So if you want all the benefits of cannabis without getting couch-locked with the munchies, consider making the switch to CBD.

Reasons why people switch from THC to CBD

With the legalization of cannabis in more states and the fame of THC, there are still several reasons why people want to make the switch to CBD.

  • Getting a job that doesn’t allow the use of THC products (make sure you’re purchasing CBD products that don’t contain trace amounts of THC).
  • Coming off of THC addiction.
  • THC creates a sense of paranoia or anxiety as a side effect.
  • Wanting to ease physical or mental pains without getting high.
  • Offsetting other unwanted side effects of THC such as the munchies.
  • CBD is legal in all 50 states and can be easily purchased.

Best CBD products for beginners

The amount of CBD products out right now can be overwhelming. If you’re unsure which CBD products you want to start off with, we're here to help you out.

One option is to go with the method of taking cannabis that you’re comfortable with. If you smoked THC but you don’t want to keep smoking, you can make the switch to taking oils or edibles. If you’d like to keep smoking, there are CBD vapes that you can inhale.

The rule of thumb is to start low and gently increase your dosage if you feel like you need more. If you’re on the heavier end of the scale or have extreme discomfort, you can start with a higher concentration of CBD.

For example, we have several selections of edible CBD gummies that you can choose from. You’ll see that each edible is packaged in pre-dosed sizes so you might get 10mg in one package or 25mg in another. If you decide to start small with 10mg, you can increase your dose by 10mg until you find your magic number.

Then on your next purchase, you can either purchase the same product or buy a higher individual dose, depending on how you’re feeling.

You can apply this same method to vaping. Start off with one hit and see how you’re feeling. Give it a few minutes and then take another hit, spacing each one out until you get the desired effects.

With these methods, you can begin to taper off of using THC and replace it with CBD.
