So what exactly is a 1:1 edible? In simple term it is edible marijuana that is infused with 1 part THC and 1 part CBD. Essentially a 50/50 blend of the two. If you edible has 80mg then it will have 40mg of THC and 40 mg of CBD. Cannabis can help you deal with the many ailments that keep you up at night or stop your progress during the day. Ratio-infused edibles with a 1:1 blend of THC and CBD, in particular, offer a unique set of mental and physical benefits.

It wasn’t until the 1980s that Raphael Mechoulam was the first person to isolate THC and CBD from cannabis and figure out the chemical makeup of each compound. He figured out what many of us now know today, that it’s THC that gets you “high”. It is solely responsible for the psychoactive stimulation and feelings of euphoria. He also figured out that CBD is non intoxicating. This is why eating an edible with purely CBD or using a CBD Isolate Tincture doesn’t get you high. It is the compound or cannabinoid that is showing tremendous medicinal potential. CBD has made significant breakthroughs in the areas of seizure allegation. It is also in my personal experience the greatest medicine for anxiety. Pain relief and inflammation are also significant properties of CBD.
Ratio-Infused Edibles: The Best of Both Worlds
THC binds with the CB1 and CB2 receptors to produce medicinal effects such as alleviated pain, improved digestion, and regulated emotions. However, THC is a powerful psychoactive stimulant, so too high of a dose can create adverse effects. Too much THC can produce feelings of paranoia or nausea. So it’s best to start with a micro- or low-dose – between 2.5mg and 5mg – to enjoy the many benefits of THC and mitigate any risks.
You may be more inclined to try CBD because it isn’t intoxicating. Many people today are interested in cannabis for its healing and therapeutic properties rather than for the euphoric effects; it’s becoming a mode for improving health and wellness above all else. CBD offers a wide variety of health benefits, yet it doesn’t bind as well with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system.
So, consuming THC with CBD will help you to get the most out of each cannabinoid. THC elevates the healing effects of CBD and CBD moderates the elevating effects of THC. When consumed together, the two produce a perfect harmony that allows you to experience a full range of medicinal benefits from cannabis. A simple way to consume THC and CBD simultaneously is through ratio-infused edibles.
What is a 1:1 Ratio-Infused Edible?
Ratio-infused edibles have a combination of THC and CBD. The easiest way to tell if an edible is ratio-infused or not is to look at the label.
You can find ratio-infused products on the market that contain varying ratios of THC to CBD. Edibles with a higher ratio of THC typically produce effects that are more relaxing and sedating. And an edible with a higher ratio of CBD to THC offers effective pain relief with little-to-no intoxicating effects. However, the effects of cannabis vary for each individual; it is very much a personal experience. Embrace experimenting! Just remember to start with a low dose and consume slowly. Wait at least 2 hours before ingesting another edible.
A 1:1 ratio-infused edible is the ideal product to help with recovering after a day of strenuous activities. After playing a round of 18-holes on Father’s Day the equal blend of THC and CBD will provide the relief you need. Five milligrams of THC will help you relax and let go of the tension you built up from slicing the ball on the last five holes. The additional 5mg of CBD will help your muscles recover as well as reduce inflammation in your joints. This combination offers mildly elevating effects so you can enjoy the U.S. Open finals in absolute peace.
