How It Works

Charlottes Web is a strain that is cross bred between an unspecified strain with a hemp plant.  Reason being is that, hemp characteristics are very high in CBD – the cousin of THC.

*If you didn’t know*

  • THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) acts directly on the body’s endocannabinoid receptors.
  • CBD (Cannabidiol) works indirectly on the body’s endocannabinoid receptors, and increases the availability of the body’s own endocannabinoid compounds to stimulate those receptors.
  • Essensitally, CBD may act as a booster to help out many of the body’s naturally functioning processes.

Effects of Charlottes Web

As a result, the strain contains under 1% THC, and between 15-20% CBD.  This high CBD content is fantastic for users who enjoy the traditional method of ingestion – smoking.  Additionally, the extremely low levels of THC result in almost zero psychedelic affects.  Instead, the user will typically feel relaxed, focussed, and creative.  The user will also experience relief from pain, nausea, migraine, and appetite.  This is especially great for patients who are trying to gain the wonderful benefits of Cannabidiol without the psychedelic effects.

 

Functions and Advantages

The rare ratio of THC and CBD in Charlottes Web provides a variety of functions that users can benefit from.

  • Baking Edibles – Patients who wish to bake weed edibles, and tame the THC content may find a huge advantage baking with Charlottes Web.
  • Elderly patients or patients who have never consumed cannabis can start with Charlottes Web. They will only feel the wonderful CBD effects and almost no psychedelics.  However, some people may vary.  Some have found that they would get dizzy from smoking too much.
