We are currently living in the progressive era of cannabis. This paradigm shift in evolved thinking and education has allowed medical and scientific professionals to learn more about the plant and utilize it for a wide array of medicinal purposes. Though there are roughly 779 known strains that have been recognized by the marijuana community, we wish to highlight one in particular that is featured at In Good Health; “Captain Cook”. We will cover the basics such as recommended ingestion methods, effects from intake, and symptoms that can be remedied with it.
What Type of Cannabis is Captain Cook?
Captain Cook is an excellent leaf hybrid strain that is currently available on our daily menu. It is known to have originated from Mexico, Colombia, Thailand, and Afghanistan. Hybrids are defined as a combination of Sativa and Indica strains and can vary in THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol).
Recommended Consumption Method
There are a number of options for which to consume this type of cannabis. Captain Cook can be made into cannabutter (cannabis-infused butter) and baked into edibles. However, the recommended form of consumption is smoking, either in a bowl/pipe, through a bong, or in a rolled joint. Each method can create its own set of effects, so be sure to monitor your intake and start off slowly whenever trying a new way of consuming medical cannabis.
Chemical Compounds and Percentage Data
The parent lineage of Captain Cook is Mystery Cookies (hybrid strain) and Mr. White (Indica strain). This combination exudes a mix of flavors such as earthy, sour, piney, spicy, and fruity.
The cannabinoid percentages found in this strain are as follows:
- THCA: 27.7%
- DTHC: 0.3%
- CBD: 0.2%
- CBC: 0.2%
- CBGA: 1.3%
- TAC: 29.7%
Here are the mood percentages you can look forward to when smoking or eating Captain Cook:
The Effects Captain Cook Has on the Body
Aside from the sensations listed above, there are also two effects that are linked to the hybrid that you should be aware of. Those who are not familiar with this particular strain may experience slight adverse effects, such as anxiety and/or dry mouth. It is important to discontinue use immediately if you begin to feel overly anxious.
Conditions Treated Using Captain Cook
Captain Cook has calming capabilities that prove helpful for individuals that experience anxiety, depression, and other psychological conditions. It can also treat restlessness and cause fatigue for patients suffering from insomnia and other sleep disorders. If you are someone that experiences physical pain such as muscle spasms and symptoms from chronic diseases, Captain Cook can be suitable as a temporary pain reliever. Additionally, it can be used to minimize migraines.
As is the case with any cannabis strain (or any medication for that matter) you want to consume Captain Cook slowly at first in order to get an idea of how it interacts with your specific ailment. Let your body become accustomed to the new strain naturally and only increase the dosage when you are fully comfortable.
At In Good Health, we want all of our patients to receive the best possible cannabis strains to effectively treat whatever ails them.
