CBD or THC

Smoking, ingesting or eating Cannabis can provide users with a variety of effects that are caused by the two major compounds that make up cannabis plants, CBD or THC. When deciding between CBD and THC products, it is best for you to decide what benefits you are looking for, before deciding.

What’s the difference between CBD and THC?

Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are two naturally occurring compounds, or cannabinoids, that are found in Cannabis plants. So, are you looking to “get high” or to “heal”? To break is down simply: Using Cannabis Products that are higher in THC will cause the psychoactive effects that will get you high and “intoxicate you”, and CBD does not cause psychoactive effects, and is usually sought after for its pain management or healing abilities.

You’ve likely heard various news stories regarding the healing properties of Cannabis and the current studies being done on the pants abilities and effects. For example, the benefits of CBD have/are being researched across the globe. CBD is being used to manage symptoms and conditions such as: epilepsy and seizure disorders, chronic pain, PTSD, anxiety, insomnia and more! Since CBD is a non-psychoactive compound, and its weak ability to bind to CB1 receptors in the brain it can stop the psychoactive effects of THC. This means that if you consume too much THC and are feeling too high or experiencing negative effects, CBD (oil is fastest) can counteract the THC! CBD oil also works well in every form, from topicals to edibles, CBD can be taken in small to large doses without unwanted side effects!

Now, if you are looking to get high while also managing a variety of conditions, THC may be the better choice for you. It may be known for its elevating properties, but at its core, THC is designed for medicinal use. THC is also being studied worldwide on heath conditions such as: Nausea and vomiting caused by Cancer Chemotherapy, HIV/AIDS, COVID-19, Multiple Sclerosis and more! THC’s psychoactive effects can increase euphoria, productivity, focus and creativity, while also helping with anxiety, pain and depression. The health benefits of THC go on and on, depending on the ingestion method, strain of cannabis you consume, potency, topical use, it gives a variety of effects. It should be noted that THC can cause temporary side effects like dry mouth, red eyes, slower reaction time and an increased heart rate. If you consume too much THC, you may experience paranoia, dizziness, nervousness etc. In extreme cases of “greening out”, you may vomit so make sure if you are new to cannabis, to start low and go slow with dosages!

There is some research that even suggests taking CBD and THC together — along with smaller organic compounds in the cannabis plant, known as terpenes or terpenoids. The research suggests that it may be more effective to combine the two, than taking CBD or THC alone.This may be because of an interaction between phytocannabinoids and terpenes known as “the entourage effect.” 

The entourage effect

This is the theory that all the compounds in cannabis work best when taken together, and that they will produce a more powerful effect than when taken alone.

While it may be that THC and CBD work better together than alone, it’s important to remember that cannabis affects everyone differently — and everyone’s goals for cannabis use are different. 

Someone who uses cannabis-based medicine for nausea relief will probably have a different ideal ratio of THC to CBD than an athlete who uses it for muscle and joint related pains. There’s no one dosage or ratio that works for everyone, it comes down to your body’s needs through trial and error.
