Scientists are constantly researching what the differences are between CBD and THC and we are going to expand on these in this article. There are several difference between these two cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD) may have similar chemical structures, but THC makes the user psychotic (makes them feel high and disoriented), while CBD does not – and has an opposite effect. This does not mean, however, that THC is the bad guy and CBD is the good guy – they both have good qualities which can be used for health and medicinal purposes.
Studies into the use of THC, a chemical compound found in cannabis, show it is great to treat these conditions:
The list for the medicinal uses of the CBD cannabinoid is endless – this panacea should be a household necessity:
The use of CBD is more prevalent that THC, mostly because THC is banned in most countries thanks to its psychoactive ingredients and the effects it has on patients. THC gives the high that can induce anxiety and paranoia, doing more harm than good. But as we know, THC is not all bad as it contains innate healing qualities and should be consumed carefully and as part of a medical programme. CBD, meanwhile,can reduce the psychotic effects of the THC and has fewer health risks.
When a patient becomes ill, he will have to do his research into cannabis and the oils and which cannabinoid is best for him and his condition. When it comes to pain, however, THC and CBD can fight it in different ways. The best way to take them, it has been found however, is together, as they work as a team to give a better result. CBD can relieve pain and inflammation through its ability to calm the patient and keep them positive, while THC makes them high and deals with the pain. When THC and CBD work in a synergistic manner, it is called the entourage effect – various chemicals in the cannabis plant cooperate to bring the patient relief. If you have pain it is better therefore to get assistance as to whether THC or CBD will help you – or the combined effect of the 2 cannabinoids.
CBD and THC are found in the flowers of the established cannabis plant – these different cannabinoids yield different amounts of the compounds according to a similar chemical formula. But their atoms are not arranged in the same way and they have very different impacts on the human body as they cooperate in unique ways with the body’s endocannabinoid system. CBD does not make you high but THC is psychoactive.
