What’s The Difference Between THC and CBD?

Read this article and you’ll find out!

 

It may be easy to overlook the difference between THC and CBD if you’re unfamiliar with cannabis. The turht is that while these two compounds come from the same plant (the cannabis sativa), they produce two completely different sets of results. Continue reading this article to learn about the many difference between THC and CBD and clear up any unwanted misinformation or stigma.

Tetrahydrocannabinol

What a mouthful! That’s why those in the cannabis industry and community refer to it as THC. It simply rolls off the tongue better! THC is probably the most popular and well recognized cannabis compound of them all,  but why do people use it?

THC is considered psycho-active and can intoxicate people through a variety of different effects and differs from strain to strain. Cannabis is very versatile. THC isn’t used to treat medical conditions and is usually what the community partake in when they talk about recreational cannabis.

THC Percentage

Another term you may often hear of in the cannabis circle is “THC %” or “THC content”. When someone asks about the percentage of THC they are often inquiring about the potency rate. The percentage of a cannabis plant is not static and can differ from crop to crop. There is no standard THC % to pursue and everyone should use cannabis that is suitable for their comfort level. If you’re new to cannabis, we recommend starting with a smaller THC. In cases like these it’s always better to start low rather than high.

Cannabidiol

A little bit less of a tongue twister but still hard to say on the first try. That’s why the community refers to cannabidiol as CBD. If you’re interested in purchasing medicinal cannabis, this is the component you should be considering when making a purchase. CBD has a lot more practical purposes for individuals. While still considered psycho-active, CBD won’t get you “high” or “stoned” like its counterpart, THC. Instead, CBD is highly sought out after because it offers medical paitents alternative remedies to harmful pharmaceutical drugs.

No matter if you’re suffering from joint pain, inflammations, anxiety, nausea or so many more issues, CBD has been demonstrated to have a positive effect in calming these symptoms. CBD is also being used in research for neurological disorders. This includes disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

Similar to THC, the higher the CBD percentage, the more potent the flower is. Though CBD is not only available to smoke. In fact, when it comes to consumption of CBD for medical reasons, many individuals prefer to consume with capsules, oils or tinctures. This is possibly because these refined products don’t emit the pungent scent that marijuana leaves often emit after being lit.
