What products are most effective for sedation?

"I would like to get stabilized with a cannabis product and stop using clinical medications."


Do you mean more sedation as in helping as a sleep aid? In the experience of many patients, cannabis products with a higher THC ratio tend to be more useful. However, if you mean "sedation" as in more calming but still awake, products with more CBD tend to work better in the many of our patients. For sleep, edibles tend to have the longest observed duration; the advice for edibles is to test dose them on a weekend and to only try a fraction of what is suggested as the adult dose to not get "overwhelmed" by the cannabinoids. Please still check with your primary MD to make sure your medications are okay to take with cannabis or arrange a time to speak to one of our highly knowledgable cannabis physicians!
