Each person responds differently
Like any medicinal option, marijuana’s efficacy may vary and possible side effects exist. Particular strains and/or ratios will not always be effective for a given symptom. The effectiveness of a strain and/or ratio of medical marijuana will be dependent on your personal response and sensitivity to the individual product, and it is important for you to work with your pharmacist or patient care representative at the dispensary to help match the products to your unique needs.
Figuring out the optimal dose that will work best for you usually requires making adjustments along the way. What works for one person may not work for another, and it also depends upon your level of comfort. Finding a balanced ratio of CBD and THC that creates the right combination of both cannabinoid compounds is the goal. The basic principle for dosing medical marijuana is “start low and go slow.”
