THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.47 - 0.7% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.36 - 0.79% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions.

This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

The aroma of this weed was not instantly detectable after unwrapping but after lighting it up the room got very dank. I also loved its buds because of their coat of trichomes. The appearance was beautiful and so was the high. Totally enjoyed my experience with Cheese!

I suffer from depression and it greatly affects my work output. To treat this condition I needed pharmaceuticals that wouldn’t make me sleep right away during the day and this strain with its good THC rate was perfect for this job. I do not think Ill ever use pharmaceuticals for this condition again.
