All Healing, No High: San Jose Medical Cannabis Collective Offers High-CBD Medicine
Elemental Wellness, a San Jose medical marijuana collective, has the solution for patients who need the healing power of medical cannabis but don’t want the psychoactive effects: strains with high cannabidiol (CBD) content.
San Jose, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) May 06, 2011
Medical marijuana is known as an effective treatment for many ailments, but it’s also known as a psychoactive agent. For people who could benefit from the medicinal properties, but need to stay alert and focused, San Jose medical cannabis collective, Elemental Wellness has good news: high cannabidiol (CBD) strains deliver the benefits without the buzz.
The most powerful medicinal compound in marijuana is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which has been shown to be helpful for a range of diseases such as glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, and side effects of chemotherapy and AIDS treatment such as nausea and loss of appetite. But THC is also responsible for the psychoactive effects of cannabis, and while many patients benefit from a sense of reduced anxiety and mood elevation, other users experience drowsiness, altered perception of space-time, sensory alterations, and disorientation.
Luckily, another compound found in cannabis, CBD, has many of the same healing effects of THC, but doesn’t have its psychoactive effects. Studies have demonstrated CBD’s effectiveness in relieving pain, convulsion, inflammation, anxiety, and nausea; inhibiting cancer cell growth; and treating schizophrenia, among other things. Many breeders are creating strains of medical cannabis with higher CBD content for patients who need the medical benefits, but don’t want the high.
“We want to provide our patients with as many treatment options as possible, and the advancement of CBD strains allows us to do just that,” says Elemental Wellness Executive Director, Ariel Loveland.
Strains of high-CBD medical marijuana currently available from collective Elemental Wellness include True Blueberry flower, Harlequin flower, Full Spectrum High CBD Hash, Leigheas Bubble, and High CBD Tincture. Their medicine is lab-tested for mold, bacterial contaminants, and potency. Their expertly trained cannabis associates can help each patient choose the medicine that will be most beneficial.
Hilary, an Elemental Wellness patient and employee, said her favorite strain of high-CBD medicine, Leigheas Bubble, was “super chunky and delicious” giving her “a relaxed body & clear head.”
