That’s a great article. I didn’t know about the modulating effect of CBD on THC receptor binding.

When recommending cannabis oils for new users and those who are “cannabis naive”, CBD is used as a safety net to ease the endocannabinoid system into activation. Many start out like this:
High CBD/LowLow THC for several weeks or months even and slowly increase the THC to eventually
match the CBD. When a patient reaches the 1:1, the magic happens.
