CBD and THC each have their own health benefits, although quite some of those are rather similar. Nevertheless, research on effects of Cannabis shows that when you consume both CBD and THC in a balanced mix they work together to have more potent medical benefits.

Keep in mind that each person reacts differently to different doses of CBD and THC, and also on the way it’s taken or applied, may that be topically, orally, or via inhalation. As such, it may be that only some or even none of the health benefits described below is experienced by you.
