Therapeutic Effects of Cannabis and Cannabinoids
Cannabis good or bad?
What’s The Difference Between THC and CBD?
Both THC and CBD are naturally occurring cannabis compounds that are known as cannabinoids, or more accurately phytocannabinoids.
The primary difference between THC and CBD is that THC is psychoactive, while CBD is generally considered to be non-psychoactive or non-intoxicating.
There are countless other cannabinoids like CBN, CBG, CBC, and others all with unique properties, but THC and CBD compromise the majority of cannabis’ chemical profile.
The compounds are synthesized within glands called trichomes located on the flowers’ calyxes. This gives dried cannabis flowers a frosty appearance.
The cannabinoids, and other compounds such as the aromatic chemicals in cannabis called terpenes, are extracted and separated from the plant material to make consumer products.
