Flavonoids are one of the lesser-known compounds in cannabis, and little is known about the flavonoids present in each strain because they are rarely tested. Like terpenes, flavonoids add to each strain’s flavor and fragrance profile.
Studies have shown that the major flavonoids present in all cannabis plants are cannflavins A, B, and C.

THC can stimulate the release of the sleep neurotransmitter adenosine.
Cannabis’ ability to modulate serotonin transmission can help relieve the intensity and frequency of headaches in some cases.
Restless Leg Syndrome is caused by excessive dopamine production, and cannabis use is associated with reduced dopamine synthesis capacity. Cannabis may prevent excessive dopamine release, restore normal neural activity in the basal ganglia, and help treat any anxiety or insomnia associated with RLS.
Cannabis contains many anxiolytic (anti-anxiety) compounds that can beat stress and reduce the production of the stress hormone cortisol.
Cannabinoids like CBD can help modulate serotonin transmission, giving it anti-depressant and anxiolytic effects.
Utilizing CBD and other phytocannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis may help replace the lost endocannabinoids, helping treat pain and mood disorders associated with NF1 gene mutations. Using THC may help boost dopamine levels in the brain.
Medical cannabis may also help reduce the intake of stimulant medications. Terpenes like beta-caryophyllene and limonene may be beneficial for reducing the intake of stimulants and addiction in general.
Dosing is a very personal issue for any cannabis strain. 3X Crazy has a high concentration of THC (22%), so caution is advised for inexperienced users. This indica-dominant hybrid is not recommended while driving or focusing on work.
Use a little to start and slowly build up from there. The lower dose may elevate and maintain focus and produce intense motivation. Higher doses will likely cause “couch lock” and increased appetite.
