THC V CBD: An Introduction 

One of them gets you “high” while the other is non-psychoactive and used for therapeutic purposes, so it’s good to know which one you’re getting. Let’s dive in.

What are THC and CBD anyway?

THC and CBD are naturally occurring compounds found in the cannabis plant with varying therapeutic benefits-ranging from alleviating nausea and chronic pain to assisting with insomnia and certain neurological disorders. THC stands for tetrahydrocannabinol (so many syllables!), while CBD stands for cannabidiol. Both belong to a special group of compounds called “cannabinoids.” Out of 113 clearly identified cannabinoids, THC and CBD are some of the most common. They work by interacting with a part of the human body called the endocannabinoid system. These compounds bind to our endocannabinoid receptors to produce a variety of mental and physical effects.

How do THC and CBD affect me?

THC and CBD interact with our endocannabinoid system in different ways to produce different effects. THC is the compound most associated with producing euphoria and other experiences that make up a “high,” while CBD, by contrast, delivers various therapeutic benefits without any intoxicating effects. When combined, CBD harmonizes with THC to regulate the intensity of its psychoactive properties as well as deliver increased therapeutic benefit. This is commonly known as the “entourage effect.” 

What are their therapeutic properties?

By interacting with our endocannabinoid system, THC and CBD are reported to help regulate the body’s natural processes like mood, appetite, and sleep, allowing people to manage symptoms associated with chronic medical conditions. Below is a list of common uses and reported therapeutic benefits
