If you’ve visited a dispensary in the last couple of years, you’ve likely discussed edibles containing cannabinoids other than THC. They are usually touted proudly by budtenders like ourselves, using terminology like “One to One to One” – does that leave you thinking “WTH does that mean?!” We’re here to break it down for you!
When someone says, “one to one” – which is generally formatted on the packaging as “1:1”, it means there are equal parts of each of the active cannabinoids being touted, such as CBD, CBN or THCV (just to name a few). Important note, when a product notes that it is 1:1, that does not mean 1mg of each - it just means they are equal in their amounts so either ask your budtender or review the labeling to confirm exact amounts. Fun fact - NO gummy sold in Massachusetts will ever exceed 5mg of THC (that is the limit per gummy) but may have higher/lower amounts of some of the other cannabinoids you'll learn about below.
Here are a couple of the most widely seen/utilized cannabinoids, along with some links to the products we have containing them.
THC - Let's start with the easiest one. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is found in every single one of the products we sell here in a legal, recreational dispensary in Massachusetts. THC is responsible for the psychoactive effects felt when consuming cannabis as THC produces feelings of being high.
CBD – The ever-popular CBD (cannabidiol) is widely utilized for its calming effects and pain relief WITHOUT the psychoactive effects associated with THC. On our menu currently we have:
Mindy’s Honey Sweet Melon Gummies 1:1 – which offer 5mg of THC and 5mg of CBD
I Am Edible’s Blackberry 20:1 – which offers 20mg of CBD to 1mg of THC – for a very minimal dose of THC
Treeworks’ Gentle Drops 10:1 – A tincture with 900mg CBD and 90mg THC in total, each serving provides 15mg CBD and 1.5mg THC for another low-dose THC option.
Coast's Cherry 2:1 - which offers 10mg of CBD and 5 mgs of THC per gummy.
CBN – CBD (Cannabinol) is what we sometimes refer to as “cannabis’ version of melatonin.” CBN is a cannabinoid in the cannabis plant that has been found to assist with sleep. On our menu we currently have:
Coast’s Cranberry Pomegranate 1:1:1 – Offering 5mg of THC, 5mg of CBD and 5mg of CBN
Freshly Baked’s Celestial Sleep 1:1 (Blueberry or Black Cherry) – Offering a balanced 5mg of THC and 5mg of CBN
Treeworks’ Dream Drops 1:3 – A tincture with 100mg CBN and 300mg THC, each serving provides 1.6mg CBN and 5mg THC
THCV – THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) has been dubbed by some as ‘diet weed’, this cannabinoid has been found to have energy inducing effects and even curb the munchies. CBS Boston recently did a segment about this cannabinoid as well as our Partner Coast Cannabis Co.'s offerings that you can watch here. We offer one (delicious!) gummy with THCV:
Coast Cannabis’ Raspberry Lime Gummies 1:1:1 – Offering 5mg THC, 5mg CBD, and 5mg of THCV
CBG – CBG (cannabigerol) is non-intoxicating and does not impart a high, despite its connection to THC. CBG has been found effective in treating chronic pain with its an anti-inflammatory properties. We have one product on our menu with CBG:
Treeworks’ Daily Drops 1:5 – A tincture with 100mg CBG and 500mg THC, each serving provides 1mg CBG and 5mg THC
