Flight Of Thoughts #20 goes into how you can learn to harness
cannabis for healing. Each person has different cannabinoid
combinations that they may respond best to, so its important to
take your time to find the ones that work for you. What
strain do you feel increases your cognitive functioning? First
Responders and Healthcare workers often ask how they can use
cannabis for their symptoms whole avoiding impairment that can
affect functioning. While spending time with family or doing
activities that require cognitive efficiency, avoid higher levels
of THC and lean towards strains that favour CBD (unless THC works
better for you).
Many paramedics that I’ve worked with tell me that strains high in terpenes like pinene and limonene to compliment the CBD can enhance cognitive efficiency even more. I personally recommend avoiding THC while on duty, and finding a strain that is 5-10% CBD (no more than 5% THC); that has a terpene blend that works for your body. Harnessing the various vaporizer temperature settings is another way to limit THC intake when needed!
Each person responds differently to cannabis based on their specific endocannabinoid set-up. This is why it is best to find a cannabis specialist who can guide you through finding the best balance of THC, CBD, and of the hundreds of terpenes that work best for your target effects.
