CBD and THC Knowing the Difference
CBD and THC often get confused about what is what and whether both give you a high feeling. This can be stemmed from the fact that both are found naturally in the cannabis genus of plants. Each can be extracted from these plants. Yet each of these compounds interacts with the body differently. Learning what each are and how they differ from one another is the key to understanding the benefits that can be had from using certain cannabis derived products.
CBD and THC interact with the endocannabinoid system, which is comprised of receptors that take it in and have enzymes break each down. After the enzymes break each down, it is then synthesized and is sent throughout the whole body to various biological and cognitive processes. Since the endocannabinoid system aids many different areas of the body, the use of CBD or THC can benefit many different issues. How each interacts with the endocannabinoid system is different from person to person. Which can cause different reactions when using either THC or CBD infused products.
THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis. This is what causes the high or euphoric sensation within the plant. THC is a list of controlled substances, making it prohibited under federal law unless it is medically prescribed. THC can be used by smoking it and it is also available in oils, edibles, tinctures, capsules, and more. THC is said to help with pain, muscle spasticity, glaucoma, insomnia, low appetite, nausea and anxiety. This help comes with the high/euphoric feeling and is illegal in most states. Since both THC and CBD are from the same plant many think both cause a high sensation and are both illegal.
CBD or cannabidiol is a naturally occurring substance that is derived from the cannabis plant. However, CBD doesn’t cause the high effects that happens with THC use. CBD has been seen to help with seizures, inflammation, pain, psychosis or mental disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, nausea, migraines, depression, and even anxiety issues. CBD is available in oral and topical forms. The topical use of the lotion and balm are for targeted pain and soreness relief. Where the oral consumption is for an allover alleviation for pain, soreness and other ailments. Topical and oral CBD are both highly effective in lessening pain and other discomforts. CBD is understood to be a natural supplement that can help with many issues a person may face without having any side effects.
