In many instances, a negative initial experience may be enough for someone to tragically banish cannabis from their life forever. Typically the reason for doing so has to do with the anxious, uncomfortable and even paranoia inducing side effects associated with consumption of high levels of THC; but what first-timers might not realize is there are ways to minimize unpleasant feelings and experiences.
For novices, lightweights and low-tolerance consumers, Kind Leaf has a recommendation for finding that perfect first-time experience.
Unlike THC, CBD is a relatively non-psychoactive compound with both relaxing and medicinal properties. CBD can actually help mitigate and even counteract THC associated anxiety, so it’s a perfect starting point for new users.
You’ll often find strains that contain equal parts THC and CBD, but some contain almost no THC at all. Beginning your journey with a CBD rich strain can assist in building the tolerance needed for individuals to experience more potent strains and cannabis infused products. Remember to start low and go slow if you are not a regular cannabis consumer.
