THC vs CBD: Properties and Benefits by Cann I Help

Consumers are getting increasingly interested in their options as hemp and other cannabis products become legal. Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), different complementary chemicals present in Cannabis plants, are among them. You can use hemp or cannabis to extract CBD. Cannabis sativa is the plant that produces hemp and cannabis. THC levels in licensed hemp must be smaller than 0.3 per cent. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that causes a high. It is possible to consume it by smoking cannabis. Oils, foods, tinctures, pills, and other forms are also available. Both substances interact with the endocannabinoid system in your body, but their effects are vastly different. At Cann I Help, we are a telehealth service for medical cannabis.

 

Chemical structure of CBD vs THC

CBD and THC share the same chemical structure, consisting of 30 hydrogen atoms, two oxygen atoms and 21 carbon atoms. The different impacts on your body are due to a minor change in how the atoms are organised. CBD and THC are chemically similar to the endocannabinoids found in your body. The release of neurotransmitters in your brain is affected by the connection. Neurons are substances that convey messages between cells and play a part in a variety of functions, including pain, immunological function, stress, and sleep, to mention some.

 

THC vs CBD: Medical Advantages

Many of the medical benefits of CBD and THC are the same. In addition, they provide some alleviation from a number of the same ailments. CBD, on the other hand, does not produce the same euphoric effects as THC. Due to the lack of this adverse effect, some people may prefer to utilise CBD.

CBD is also used to treat a variety of different ailments, including:

  • Seizures, pain, psychosis, and other mental illnesses
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • nausea
  • migraine
  • depression\anxiety
  • It is non-psychoactive and non-sedating.
  • Driving is safe.

THC is used to treat the following conditions:

  • Muscular spasticity pain
  • Glaucoma
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • It’s a sedative that’s also psychoactive.
  • Driving is prohibited.

When THC and CBD are two separate substances, why do people talk about THC levels in CBD oil?

THC and CBD are two of the most well-known cannabinoids found in cannabis. CBD and THC are produced by both cannabis and hemp.

Cannabis, on the other hand, has a more effective THC content. Therefore, CBD concentration is more significant in hemp.
