High dose of CBD increases effects of THC in edibles, study finds

If you’re interested in learning more about the effects of cannabis edibles, a recent study has found that a high dose of CBD can increase the effects of THC. This could have important implications for those who use edibles for medical or recreational purposes.

The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Toronto and published in the journal Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research, involved giving a group of healthy adults either a low-dose or high-dose of CBD before they consumed an edible containing THC. The results showed that those who had taken the high-dose of CBD experienced a greater increase in THC blood concentrations than those who had taken the low-dose.

The researchers believe that this could be due to the fact that CBD can act as an “inverse agonist”, meaning that it can reduce the activity of THC in the body. This could lead to a greater effect from the THC in the edibles, as the CBD would be blocking some of the THC’s activity.

So what does this mean for those who use edibles? It could mean that if you’re looking for a more intense experience from edibles, taking a high-dose of CBD beforehand could be beneficial. However, it’s important to remember that everyone’s experience with cannabis is different, so it’s best to start with a low dose and work your way up.

It’s also important to note that while this study was conducted in a controlled environment, the results may not necessarily be applicable to everyone. For example, the amount of CBD taken could vary depending on the individual’s weight, metabolism, and other factors.

Overall, this study provides some interesting insight into how CBD can affect the effects of THC in edibles. However, it’s important to remember that this is still an emerging area of research, and more studies are needed to better understand the effects of CBD on THC.
