What is the difference between CBD and THC?

purplekush By purplekush December 7, 2021

Cannabis consumers have long regarded the potency of cannabis (high THC content) as one of the main factors that make certain strains more popular. Although the traditional demand for THC has led to oversaturation of high-efficiency products, many consumers are beginning to prefer low-concentration products that have lower THC content and higher levels of the non-toxic compound CBD (cannabidiol).

What is the difference between CBD and THC?

Both THC and CBD are cannabinoids extracted from the hemp plant, but they are different in many ways and may affect your next purchase.

A simple way of thinking is that THC is defined by the sensation that cannabis gives you, while the effects of CBD are not felt. The important difference is that, unlike THC, CBD does not intoxicate you. It also addresses one of the most common reasons people choose to use CBD-pain management.

CBD can also prevent some of the intoxicating effects of THC. By binding to cannabinoid receptors, it prevents THC from activating these receptors. This translates into a less strong psychological effect, which is why products that mix CBD and THC are very suitable for first-time consumers.

This does not mean that CBD itself cannot produce effects. High doses of CBD usually produce a very relaxing experience. Just like walking out of a hot tub, your body may feel tingling and relaxing, and your brain may be clear.
