Because we make products in five CBD-to-THC ratios, we get questions all the time about which ratios are right for each individual. We believe the “perfect ratio” depends on your tolerance for the psychoactive effects of THC. We recommend starting with a low dose of a low THC ratio for a few days and see how you feel. If you’re confident you can handle more THC, try the next ratio up and see if that works for you. We now offer Care By Design sample packs that include all 5 ratios so you can find what works for you. Find Care By Design near you here.
- The 18:1 and 8:1 are high CBD, low THC, and rarely psychoactive. These ratios are ideal for novice cannabis users or people who don’t want to get high.
- The 8:1 and 4:1 are considered mid-range ratios. These are best for people who have some tolerance for THC and/or people who respond better to more THC.
- The 2:1 and 1:1 are more balanced ratios. For some people they are psychoactive at moderate doses.
