How are CBD and THC Different?
CBD is all the great health benefits without any of the high!
Until recently, the most well-known compound in cannabis was delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is the most active ingredient in marijuana. Marijuana contains both THC and CBD, but the compounds have different effects.
THC is well-known for the mind-altering “high” it produces when broken down by heat and introduced into the body, such as when smoking the plant or cooking it into foods. THC is the primary agent responsible for creating the “high” feeling associated with marijuana use.
Unlike THC, CBD is not psychoactive. This means that it does not change the state of mind of the person who uses it. However, it does produce significant changes in the body and has been found to have extreme health benefits on the Endocannabinoid system that helps regulate the immune, neuro and nervous system.
