You may have heard the terms THC, CBD, and cannabinoids, but do you understand the differences and benefits each is capable of?
One of the most exciting things about the cannabis plant is understanding the way that it interacts with our body's internal systems.
This includes pain, stress, appetite, energy metabolism, cardiovascular function, reward and motivation, reproduction, and sleep. Cannabinoids impact the functions by acting on the endocannabinoids system (a productive system present throughout the entire body that aids in its daily functions from the immune system and nerve endings to brain cells)
Cannabinoids have many possible health benefits and have the potential to impact our well-being depending on our needs and personal choice.
Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two most prominent cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant.
Their chemical formula is quite identical, yet the distinct arrangement of the atoms means that CBD and THC affect you differently. Both cannabinoids bind to neurotransmitters (chemical receptors in your brain), but the effects can be vastly different.
The main difference: THC gets you high, but CBD does not.
While THC can get you high, CBD won't intoxicate you. It has the potential to lift moods and energies with sedative effects, especially if used in high doses. CBD is certainly psychoactive, as it prompts a more physiological response, and CBD has a more noticeable feel, though not overwhelming for most people.
So what does THC or CBD do to the body?
THC's effect on the brain's functions triggers the production of feelings of intoxication and euphoria.
When CBD interacts with the brain and central nervous system, it creates psychoactive effects, reportedly causing a relaxant agent with anti-seizure and anti-anxiety properties.
CBD has a range of various benefits, from beauty to medical. Products containing the focus of CBD have been noted to have the following effects:
When consuming either of the two, it is best always to understand behavioral effects and the ideal dosage for the best experience.
