THC Vs CBD: What's The Difference?

THC and CBD are both found naturally in marajuana, which comes from the cannabis plant. In recent years marajuana has become more commonly used, not only as a recreational drug, but as a medical treatment for a variety of conditions. Many different types and strains are available that have different effects on the mind and body. Some contain THC and others contain CBD. What’s the difference between them? Here’s what you need to know. 

THC: Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol

THC is found naturally in the leaves of the cannabis plant. This is the psychoactive ingredient that produces the “high” feeling when it is smoked or consumed. It is considered a controlled substance according to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).

CBD: Cannabidiol

CBD is also found naturally in the leaves of the cannabis plant, but it is not psychoactive and therefore does not produce the feeling of being “high” the way THC does. It is not as controlled as THC, which makes it easier to find and purchase. 

Similarities Between THC and CBD

THC and CBD have a few things in common: 

  • Both are derived from the Cannabis plant. 
  • They have the same molecular formula: 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and two oxygen atoms. 
  • Both affect communication between brain cells. 
  • Both may have medical benefits such as relief of pain, anxiety, and the symptoms associated with a variety of neurological conditions. 
  • There are some side effects that they have in common, including nausea, lightheadedness, and drowsiness. 
  • Neither are FDA approved to treat any specific medical conditions. 

Differences Between THC and CBD 

The differences between THC and CBD are more extensive and include: 

  • THC can make you feel “high” but CBD does not. 
  • THC is a more highly controlled substance that is still illegal in many states.
  • CBD is not as controlled, but is still subject to state and federal laws that govern the use, production, and dispensing. 
  • High levels of THC can cause hallucinations, delusions, and psychosis. 
  • CBD products may be questionable when it comes to ingredients they contain. You may think you are avoiding THC, yet it could result in a false positive drug test. 

Does Hemp Contain THC? 

Hemp is a cannabis product that contains 0.3% or less of THC. This makes it legal in the majority of the 50 states, with a few exceptions. Federally, any product containing less than 0.3% of THC is legal, but each state has its own specific laws regarding its use, production, and sale. 

Benefits of CBD

CBD has become a popular product due to the following benefits: 

  • Relieves pain. 
  • Relieves anxiety. 
  • May improve sleep.
  • Relieves the symptoms of many neurological disorders, such as epilepsy and parkinson’s disease. 
  • Relieves the symptoms related to cancer treatments such as chemotherapy. 
  • Easier to access. 

Benefits of THC

Products containing THC have a longer list of benefits: 

  • Provides the euphoric “high” feeling. 
  • Releases dopamine, the feel good hormone. 
  • Relieves pain. 
  • Relieves anxiety. 
  • Relieves the symptoms associated with many medical conditions, including ALS, MS, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, Crohn's disease, and Alzheimer’s disease. 
  • May be more effective at relieving the symptoms associated with chemotherapy. 
  • Can improve appetite for HIV/AIDS patients.
