What’s Right for Me: CBD or THC?

CBD vs THC

Choosing Between CBD or THC?

The short answer is that THC provides a “high” and is an intoxicant. CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning that it won’t provide a “high”, and is anti-inflammatory. THC and CBD complement each other and can intensify each other’s positive effects. 

You can learn more from the friendly, helpful product specialists at the Strains Perris store. However, as with any medical condition or diagnosis, Strains Dispensary encourages all of our customers to always consult a medical professional before looking to relieve symptoms with the use of CBD or THC.

CBD vs. THC: Psychoactive Effects

Despite their similar chemical structures, CBD and THC don’t have the same psychoactive effects. CBD is psychoactive, just not in the same manner as THC. It doesn’t produce the high associated with THC. CBD is shown to help with anxiety, depression, and seizures.

THC binds with the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain. It produces a high or sense of euphoria.

 

CBD binds very weakly, if at all, to CB1 receptors. CBD needs THC to bind to the CB1 receptor and, in turn, can help reduce some of the unwanted psychoactive effects of THC, such as euphoria or sedation.

CBD vs. THC: Medical benefits

CBD and THC have many of the same medical benefits. Under professional and expert medical guidance and diagnosis, CBD or THC can provide relief from several of the same conditions. 

However, CBD doesn’t cause the euphoric effects that occur with THC. Some people may prefer to use CBD because of the lack of this side effect.
