CBD:THC Ratios – How to Choose The Best Medicine for You

Understanding Ratios

Medical CBD is produced in a number of formulations or ratios of two primary cannabinoids: CBD and THC. To satisfy the conditions approved in the state of Texas under the Compassionate Use Program, licensees in this state are only allowed to produce cannabis extracts containing 0.5% THC by weight. This makes it possible for licensees to produce only what are referred to as High-CBD and Balanced formulations.

Our Formulations

HIGH-CBD

  • High-CBD formulations have much higher CBD content by weight – up to 20 times the amount of THC.
  • Clinical research suggests that High-CBD formulations can have a positive impact on symptoms associated with the following conditions:
    • Epilepsy and other seizure disorders
    • Autism
    • Spasticity

BALANCED

  • Balanced formulations have relatively similar levels of CBD and THC by weight
  • Clinical research suggests that Balanced formulations can have a positive impact on symptoms associated with the following conditions:
    • Terminal Cancer
    • ALS
    • Other neurodegenerative diseases

Like most new medications, dosage recommendations for cannabis medicines are best established according to existing scientific research, careful integration of high-quality anecdotal evidence, and incorporation of individual patient outcomes. The dose-finding process will be different for each patient, the discovery process occurring alongside individualized titration guided by their physician. As more patients join the program and the knowledge base for physicians grows, prescribers will gain a better understanding of efficacy and how patients tolerate medical cannabis treatment.
