Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidoil (CBD) are two types of cannabinoids found naturally in the resin of the marijuana plant, Cannabis sativa. Both of these substances interact with the cannabinoid receptors found in the human body, but the effects brought on by these compounds couldn’t be more opposite. For this reason, CBD is used more often for medical treatments then THC. THC is found in the cannabis plant which is a flower plant of three species, Sativa, Indica and Ruderalis. CBD is found in both cannabis and hemp plants. The hemp plant only shows traces of THC, small traces of THC is needed to activate the CBD oil in your body.
CBD has the same chemical formula as THC however the atoms are arranged slightly different. This slight difference caused the THC to create a psychoactive affect, While CBD lacks that as an influence. CBD accounts for up to 40%of cannabis extracts. Its plentiful nature, coupled with its failure to produce a “High” effect, make it a strong running mate for medical proposes. Some effects of CBD can be a decrease in anxiety and a decrease in inflammation, relief from convolutions and nausea, and a reduction of psychoactive symptoms. Studies have shown CBD can help with lowering feelings of depression and social anxiety, side effects of cancer treatment like nausea and increased appetite and reducing psychotic symptoms that come with Schizophrenia.
THC is the main psychoactive component of the marijuana plant, or the primary agent responsible for creating the feeling of being “high”. This compound works by imitating the effects of anandamide, a neurotransmitter produced naturally by the human body to help modulate sleeping and eating habits as well as the perception of pain. Effects of THC can be the feeling of relaxation, fatigue, reduced aggression, hunger, and the altered sense of sight, smell and hearing. Research shows that THC may help in the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis by improving spasticity and bladder function while reducing spasms and central pain, alleviates symptoms and stimulates appetite and eating.
