In the vast and expanding world of cannabis products, understanding how different ratios of THC to CBD impact the effects and potential benefits of a product is crucial to getting the most out of your cannabis experience. But what does “1:1” vs. “20:1” mean, and how will it impact the effects you experience?
At Bloom dispensaries in Montana, we provide a diverse selection of high-quality CBD products verified for potency by third-party labs, each featuring unique CBD to THC ratios, to allow you to find the perfect cannabinoid and terpene blend for your specific needs and preferences.
The 1:1 CBD/THC Ratio Unraveled
The concept of a 1:1 CBD to THC ratio means you’re getting a product with nearly equal amounts of CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). This balanced blend is popular with many consumers seeking the therapeutic benefits of cannabis without the intense psychoactive effects of THC.
A 1:1 ratio allows the CBD and THC to work synergistically, with the CBD tempering the intoxicating effects of THC while allowing its medicinal properties to shine through. This makes a 1:1 product ideal for managing pain, inflammation, anxiety, nausea, and more, while still providing relaxing psychoactive effects.
At Bloom, our selection of 1:1 products includes vape cartridges, tinctures, topicals, and more so you can consume CBD and THC in your preferred format for fast-acting relief.
Advantages of Vaping CBD with CBD Distillate Carts
For CBD users who prefer the convenience and customizable dosing of vaping, our CBD distillate vape cartridges offer potent, aroma-rich relief in every puff.
Formulated using pure cannabis-derived CBD distillate and strain-specific natural terpenes, our carts capture the essence and effects of iconic cannabis strains. They contain no VG, PG, PEG, Vitamin E, MCT, or other additives – just high cannabinoid distillate and natural terpenes. Available in popular strains like King Louis, London Pound Cake, Zkittlez, Sour Tangie, & Sojay Haze, our 1:1 ratio vapes offering a relaxing, flavorful experience.
Vaping CBD distillate allows the CBD to enter your bloodstream quickly through the lungs without passing through the digestive system. This means you’ll feel the effects almost instantly. The benefits of vaping CBD include:
- Faster absorption
- Improved bioavailability
- Precise dosage control
1:1 THC:CBD Ratio vapes have become popular among all types of cannabis consumers for their balanced psychoactive effects without the anxiety some report from high-THC distillate. Whether you’re new to THC vape carts and want a less potent alternative, or are looking for a more uplifting formulation to power your day, Bloom’s high-CBD Ratio Vape Carts offer powerful relief with flavorful strain-specific terpene profiles to modulate the effects.

How to Store CBD Oils
To maintain the potency and shelf life of your CBD products, proper storage is key. Here are some tips on storing CBD oil:
- Store in a cool, dark place away from heat and sunlight, which can degrade CBD over time. A refrigerator or freezer can help prolong freshness.
- Make sure the bottle is tightly sealed to prevent air exposure. Oxygen can react with the compounds in CBD and reduce potency.
- Avoid extreme shifts in temperature, such as moving CBD between the refrigerator and room temperature frequently. Consistent, cool temperature is ideal.
- Check labeling for any specific storage instructions, like refrigeration requirements or shelf life after opening.
Following these precautions will help keep your CBD oils stay potent for as long as possible.
The Shelf Life of CBD Oil
When stored properly, CBD products generally last 14-24 months before degrading and losing efficacy. Refrigeration and minimizing air exposure helps extend shelf life. Note that opened CBD oil may have a shorter shelf life of just 6-12 months.
Check product labels for each item’s recommended shelf life and use CBD oils within the listed timeframe to get the most from your purchase.
The Effects and Benefits of CBD Products
The unique compounds in CBD oil, like cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, offer a range of potential therapeutic effects and health benefits. These may include:
- Pain relief and reduced inflammation
- Reduced anxiety and improved mood
- Neuroprotective properties
- Improved sleep quality
- Clearer, calmer thinking
- Skin nourishment
- Immune support
The specific effects experienced depend on the CBD-to-THC ratio, other cannabinoids present, and personal biochemistry. Start low and gradually increase your dose to find the sweet spot for you.
Therapeutic Potential of CBD Products
Early research indicates CBD may help with a variety of conditions due to its interaction with the body’s endocannabinoid system, including:
- Chronic pain
- Neurodegenerative diseases
- Psychiatric disorders
- Skin conditions
- Substance addiction
- Cancer-related symptoms
However, more research is still needed to fully understand CBD’s mechanisms of action and potential in disease treatment. Always talk to your doctor before using CBD products.
