As mentioned above, THC and CBD are cannabinoids, compounds found in the cannabis plant. In addition, each of them has unique therapeutic effects that are successfully used for various medical purposes. THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) has psychoactive properties, it provides euphoria or other undesirable or negative effects. For this reason, it is used for limited medical purposes, such as pain relief. However, CBD can interact with the human endocannabinoid system for various symptoms. And provides many of the same benefits as its THC counterpart, but without any negative or mind-altering effects.
CBD is not psychoactive and provides beneficial medical effects. And that is important without negative side effects. This fact makes it a more desirable and legal option than traditional or medical marijuana. But only if it contains less than 0.3% THC. Are you still curious about the differences between THC and CBD? Take the next few minutes to delve deeper into the information about CBD and THC.
CBD can be obtained from two plants, from hemp and from marijuana. Some sources claim that CBD obtained from marijuana is more "powerful" than that obtained from cannabis. However, in most countries, legislation restricts the sale of marijuana and therefore CBD from marijuana may simply be illegal. Therefore, the vast majority of CBD is obtained from industrial hemp, because its content of psychoactive tetrahydrocannabinol THC is significantly lower than in marijuana.
