THC vs CBD
Cannabinoids are substances that make up marijuana’s unique chemical profile.
There are more than 100 chemical compounds in a marijuana plant, but the most common ones are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
Both THC and CBD are proved to have numerous benefits for patients suffering from different types of medical conditions, as well as for recreational users.
THC is the principal psychoactive substance in cannabis, providing the “high” effect in users. However, this compound has been used in medicine for decades now — as a painkiller, for treating nausea and vomiting in patients undergoing chemotherapy, as well as for eating disorders.
On the other hand, CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with great medical potential. This marijuanacompound does not make users high but instead relaxes the body and mind.
