Spasm Relief Tincture™ (50% THC/ 50% CBD)
INTERNAL • High THC/ Low CBD • High Healing Value • Psychoactive
Spasm Relief is a Cannabis Based Medicinal Extract (CBME) that has shown to be effective for spasticity due to multiple sclerosis and for cancer pain. Spasticity means there is an increase in 'muscle tone' which makes the muscles feel “stiff. This means it is more difficult than normal to move the muscle. This tinctures combines equal ratios of CBD and THC with minor cannabinoids.
Spasm Relief contains about 42% v/v of ethanol (alcohol) i.e. up to 5 mg per dose. The amount of alcohol in the maximum daily dose for most people (3 – 4 droppers) is about the same as found in two teaspoons (10 ml) of beer and about one teaspoon (5 ml) of wine. This product can be harmful for those suffering from alcoholism.

The scientific research on combining THC and CBD done by GW Pharmaceuticals is extensive.
It goes back to the early 2000 and reveals that THC and CBN are most effective when they are used in combination.
Spasm Relief is very similarly to Sativex. Patented by GW Pharmaceuticals in 1999. Sativex has been accepted as a drug in over 15 countries like the UK where cannnabis—even medical cannabis—is illegal. The way many countries and pharmaceutical corporations skirt this technicality is by classifying Sativex as its chemical name “Naxibimol” instead of cannabis, just like other cannabis-based pharmaceuticals do
Equal combinations of THC and CBD has been known to alleviate neuropathic pain and seizures. There are two differences between Sativex and Spasm.
- Sativex uses propylene Glycol we use “creamed organic honey.”
- Sativex is 3 times more expensive than Spasm Relief.
The easiest way to understand how THC and CBD work together, is to look at THC as the Agonist (i.e. stimulates mental activity) and CBD as the Antagonist (suppresses mental activity). THC is psychoactive, while CBD is anti-psychotic.
THC = Agonist CBD = Antagonist
Increase Mental Activity Decrease Mental Activity
CNS Stimulate Anti-Depressant
Appetite Stimulate Appetite Suppressant
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (65) when the active (Agonist) and deactivating (Antagonist) forces are balanced, the living system exhibits physical health; when they are unbalanced, a diseased state results. Either imbalance, results in physical illness. If one goes too far one direction i.e. too much stimulation (Agonist) with THC and paranoia emerges (too much thinking), or too much Suppression (Antagonist) with CBD and memory extinction emerges (no thinking), then they can simply balance with the opposite. In addition to the medicinal benefits (refer to Chart #2) outlined above, there are five unique ways of combining THC and CBD to balance your CNS and PNS:
- THC alone
- CBD alone
- THC and CBD at the same time
- THC followed (wait 15 minutes) with CBD
- CBD followed (wait 15 minutes) with THC
What is the best? Only you can answer that question via the process of self-titration. I suggest that you start with the cannabinoid (THC or CBD) or a combination of THC/CBD that the research indicated has the highest medicinal effects you seek.
For instance, patients with a migraine seeking relief to tension in their CNS, need to activate their CB1 receptor and would start with THC. Two signs will appear that are a warnings signals that the intake of THC should be reduced:
- Issues (analysis, paralysis, spacey, etc. ) caused by thinking too much
To reduce the paranoia induced by THC, add CBD and the paranoia will disappear within 10 minutes. Another example is someone who is depressed and is seeking relief, they should start with high CBD and add THC if the effects of CBD need to be reduced. For example, two signs appear with frequent use of CBD:
- Issues (forgetfulness, anxious) caused by not thinking enough.
- Memory Extinction
If short term memory extinction occurs and it does not suit your needs, the active mind can be stimulated by taking THC.
Another example concerns Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s diseases. Someone who is seeking relief from spasticity, wants to maximize the anti-convulsant effects of cannabinoids, should start with 50% THC and 50% CBD. As outlined above, when you combine THC and CBD, you maximize the anti-consulvant effects and minimize the negatives of THC or CBD alone. If they find that they need to be active, we suggest that they add CBD. On the other hand, if they need to be passive (rest) we would suggest that they add THC.
If you go too far in one direction, i.e. too much Yin with THC and paranoia emerges, or too much Yang with CBD and memory extinction emerges, simply balance with the opposite.
Flower / Scent
Combining THC strains with CBD strains produces a very pleasant tincture. Delta9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD) is extracted from cannabis that has been grown according to sustainable growing practices. The natural aroma has “cannabis scent” that mid stage plants radiate. It is wrapped in High Grade Gluten Free Ethanol for maximum bioavailability. Alta California employs a High Tech / High Touch process for growing, extracting and packaging.
Our process maintains the subtle vibrations of the plant. This is in contrast to Super Critical Extraction Process (C02).
Our grow process is based on the renewable and using sustainable principles of agriculture as articulated by the Demeter society.
Alta California Botanicals are triple tested for maximum safety and effectiveness.
