THC vs. CBD
Find out about the difference between THC and CBD.
“The obvious and best-known answer is that THC makes you “high” while CBD does not”. Cannabis, is a plant we all are familiar with, it produces two ingredients (THC and CBD). CBD doesn’t contain the same psychoactive effects that THC has. Chemically speaking, both are identical with a few differences, and both share the same chemical formula. Both interact with pain, appetite, sex drive, mood and memory. Even though they have many similarities, CBD and THC have opposites effects. They interact very differently with the Type One cannabinoid receptors (CB1) in the body. “THC is able to bind directly with the CB1 receptors, affecting the brain and causing psychoactive effects, while CBD does not bond with the receptors. As such, CBD has been found to be calming and relaxing, while THC causes a lot of marijuana’s negative effects, such as memory loss or increased psychosis”.
