What is the Difference between CBD and THC?

What is the Difference between CBD and THC?


They are referred to the chemical compounds that are cultivated by the cannabis flower that respond to the cannabinoid receptors dispersed throughout the body. These receptors are a component of the larger endocannabinoid system which functions in the same way as your other bodily systems like digestive, nervous etc. in order to handle the bodily processes like pain sensation, appetite, mood, and memory as well. Applewood Medical Dispensary found that when the endocannabinoid system isn’t functioning properly, the outcomes are illness and physical complications. The cannabinoids like THC and CBD are helpful in copying your natural endocannabinoid, relieving you from the symptoms.


THC is also known as delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. It is the main psychoactive component of cannabis meaning cannabinoid which is responsible for the euphoria or high.

THC is helpful for the body in the following ways:

  1. It helps in regulating your immune system
  2. It helps significantly in anti-inflammation
  3. It helps in relieving pain
  4. It helps in elevating the mood
  5. It helps in stimulating euphoria
  6. It helps in stimulating appetite
  7. It helps in relaxing your muscles
  8. It helps in reducing many types of epileptic seizure
  9. It helps in reducing nausea
  10. It also helps in eliminating spasticity and spasms if suffering from Multiple Sclerosis.


This is referred to as cannabidiol. It is the second most famously studied cannabinoid. The only difference is that it is non-psychoactive and lacks the high factor that THC contains. According to anecdotal and clinical proof, CBD is famous for:

  1. It helps in pain relief
  2. It helps in eliminating nausea
  3. It helps in getting rid of anxiety
  4. It helps significantly in controlling epilepsy
  5. It helps in immunosuppression
  6. It helps in relaxing your muscles
  7. It acts as an anti-psychotic
  8. It helps in eradicating inflammation
  9. It helps in eliminating insomnia
  10. It calms your soul.

Medicinal marijuana is loaded with CBD and quite low in the THC levels. This can be safely used with children with varying disorders, especially the rarest forms of epilepsy when all other treatment options are done and dusted with.

To find a balance between the two, all trial and error methods are being put to test. But rest assured, once the user finds that sweet spot that hits them, it can enhance their quality of life with little to zero side effects that draws most people to marijuana as a form of treatment… and sometimes for recreational means.
