CBD vs. THC

Cannabis is made up of more than 120 components, which are known as cannabinoids. Two options available to consumers are known as
cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

CBD

  • non-intoxicating and non-euphoric, meaning it won’t get you “high"
  • used to help reduce inflammation and pain
  • may also ease nausea, migraine, seizures, and anxiety 

THC

  • this is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis
  • THC is responsible for the “high” that most people associate with cannabis


You can find cannabis products that contain just CBD, THC, or a combination of both. 
The dried flower that most people associate with cannabis contains both cannabinoids, though certain strains may have much more of one than the other.
