The Basics: THC & CBD

Tue Oct 20 2020

Cannabis contains many different compounds that each have different effects on the body. The main two compounds you will see are THC and CBD. The two compounds have many of the same benefits with one key difference; THC gets you high, CBD does not. Many people find that CBD can provide the benefits of marijuana without the euphoric or dysphoric effects often introduced by-products with higher THC.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in cannabis. THC is the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis. Like most pharmacologically active secondary metabolites of plants, THC is a lipid found in cannabis, assumed to be involved in the plant’s evolutionary adaptation against insect predation, ultraviolet light, and environmental stress. THC is responsible for the euphoric feeling that users describe.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a phytocannabinoid discovered in 1940. It is one of 113 identified cannabinoids in cannabis plants, along with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract As of 2019, clinical research on CBD included studies related to anxiety, cognition, movement disorders, and pain, but there is insufficient high-quality evidence that cannabidiol is effective for these conditions.
