What is the difference between THC and CBD?

THC and CBD are both cannabinoids that are found in Marijuana (cannabis). Scientists have identified over 100 different cannabinoids in the cannabis plant, but the ones you’ll most commonly hear about are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).

So, lets first talk a little about the body on the receptors for cannabinoids. Researchers have identified two receptors in the human body that respond to cannabis, known as CB1 and CB2. These receptors are part of the larger endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate hormone secretion to influence appetite, mood, and energy.

Now back to CBD and THC and how they differ from each other. It all boils down to how they interact with the body. In a nut shell THC interacts with the CB1 receptors creating a euphoric feeling or “high”. The interaction of the CB1 receptors and THC has this effect because CB1 receptors affect the brain and spinal cord. CBD affects the CB2 receptor in the body by reducing inflammation in the body without giving you the “high” feeling that THC brings. In the past few years CBD has gained popularity because of its healing properties without the “high” feeling.
