Know the Difference Between THC & CBD
Two of the many natural compounds produced by the cannabis plant are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). THC is the primary compound in cannabis known to cause psychoactive effects, or colloquially referred to as “getting high.” CBD provides therapeutic effects without psychoactive effects.
Both THC and CBD yield medical and therapeutic benefits for a variety of conditions. They are both very safe, offering limited risks. Still, we always caution our customers to discuss with a doctor any interactions with current prescription drugs. The critical difference is the psychoactive nature of THC that allows it to impact emotions.
