At a higher dose, the 1:1 ratio is very effective for fighting acute and chronic pain. Recall that THC calms your nervous system and CBD relaxes your immune system. Many patients with overall body aches or localized nerve pain have found the 1:1 ratio really helps them manage pain on a daily basis. CBD is also known to regulate serotonin levels, which is linked to anxiety, stress, and mood.
Kush Queen Awaken Bath Bomb – Cannabis bath bombs are a great way to use topicals. Since you’re in the bath, even coverage is pretty much a guarantee. The Awaken Bath Bomb is a great way to get rid of aches and pains, and for the body and mind to completely relax. Skin is the biggest organ with most of our CB1 and CB2 receptors.
Of all soothing activities, reading is one of the best on a 1:1. The combination of cannabinoids at a low dose allows your mind to enjoy a long read and visualize what you’re skimming through. Such an activity is spiritually and physically healing.
Before elaborating on the many benefits and uses of the ratio, it’s important to highlight that a high can be used and altered in many different ways to your advantage. For example, pairing coffee or an energizing tea with a 1:1 tincture would offer an energizing and productive high, giving the mind a chance to focus and accomplish tasks. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a much more relaxed feeling, you can pair your 1:1 product with a chamomile tea.
Whether you’re experiencing angst or recovering from a tough workout, the benefits from a 1:1 aka The Golden Ratio are astonishing. The practical mix of THC and CBD offer what we call the entourage effect, giving your body the composure and calm it needs. We have put together how exactly this entourage effect works, and what are some of the best uses for the 1:1 ratio, along with some of our favorite products.
Combining THC and CBD is the ultimate way to relax your body. THC binds to CB1 receptors and calms the nervous system, whereas CBD binds to CB2 receptors and calms the immune system (additionally regulating serotonin levels). Both parts of your body act independently on a regular basis, and both carry out their biological “tasks”. When you consume a product with an equal THC:CBD ratio, your body experiences what we call the entourage effect.

Authors reported: “This is one of the first studies to examine the differential effects of various THC to CBD ratios using cannabis flower chemovars that are widely available in state-regulated markets. The present findings suggest that CBD may be associated with an overall reduction of THC exposure and may mitigate the negative psychotomimetic effects of THC without diminishing the effects of THC that individuals report liking.”
Participants who consumed THC-dominant flowers and those who consumed samples containing equal percentages of THC and CBD both reported experiencing similar positive effects following marijuana smoking. However, those subjects who consumed samples with both THC and CBD were less likely to report experiencing any negative effects, such as feelings of anxiety and paranoia.
They concluded: “The results of the present study suggest that participants using the THC + CBD chemovar had significantly lower plasma THC levels and reported less paranoia and anxiety as compared to participants using the THC dominant chemovar. Importantly, despite these differences, participants in both the THC + CBD and THC conditions reported similar positive subjective effects. … The harm reduction implication of these findings is that cannabis chemovars containing CBD may result in less overall exposure to THC and subsequently less potential for harm, particularly with respect to the psychotomimetic effects of THC.”
A team of investigators associated with the University of Colorado’s Anschutz Medical Campus examined the subjective effects associated with the inhalation of cannabis flowers containing various THC/CBD ratios. Subjects in the study were randomly assigned to inhale either THC-dominant flowers (24 percent THC and one percent CBD), CBD-dominant flowers (23 percent CBD and one percent THC), or flowers containing nearly equal ratios of THC and CBD (10 percent THC and nine percent CBD). Participants inhaled cannabis ad libitum and described the effects one hour later.
Aurora, CO: Subjects who consume cannabis flowers containing nearly equal percentages of THC and CBD are less likely to report experiencing either anxiety or other adverse effects, according to data published in the journal Addiction Biology.
