THC versus CBD: The Most Common Cannabinoids
These days we hear about cannabis and marijuana products, being declared legal by many states. Cannabinoids and Tetrahydrocannabinol are two of the chemical compounds found in the plant Cannabis. And the two most commonly found in Cannabis and Hemp products.
· CBD (cannabidiol)
· THC (tetrahydrocannabinol)
Cannabis produces Cannabinoids and Tetrahydrocannabinol and they can cause supportive reactions in our body. Marijuana and Hemp both have THC and CBD. Marijuana has a higher percentage of THC than Hemp, whereas the percentage of cannabidiol in Hemp is greater.
How THC and CBD Affect our Body
CBD and THC have different chemical properties, and hence they affect your body differently. Both CBD and THC work with receptors in your body and some say they can have an effect on pain, mood, sleep, and memory.
The main psychoactive compound in marijuana is THC and that is what makes people actually experience that "high." Felling.
Whereas, CBD does not cause that euphoric feeling of getting “high”; instead, it has been said it can, in some case’s give the feeling of well-being, by working with other elements in the body.
Supportive Health and Wellness of CBD
Currently, research is being done on CBD, with some clinical trials also “The National Institutes of Health” shows that more than 160 trials involving CBD are either active or recruiting.
People say they choose CBD products with the hope of some supportive help in some of their daily symptoms of their overall health and wellness.
There is not much scientific evidence to support that CBD helps with any of their symptoms so far.
But, Epidiolex is a CBD-based drug, which has been approved by the FDA. This drug is a treatment for several severe forms of rare childhood epilepsy.
· CBD can also change the working of some medicines. Consult your doctor about it.
· There are some rules and restrictions on selling products that contain CBD, but as part of the Farm Bill in December 2018, Congress has legalized USA Grown hemp with less than 0.03% THC paving the way for many CBD products to be made available.
