What Is CBD And How Does It Help?
If you’re not familiar with the difference between CBD and THC, we’re happy to help enlighten you. Cannabidiol is a substance found within marijuana that has an almost non-existent amount of psychoactive effects. Its primary use is its medicinal effects and are associated with the emotional, pain, and coordination benefits one can get from certain strains of cannabis. It is also known to have positive effects on inflammation, and can help the body produce more of its own natural cannabinoids.
What About THC?
THC is scientifically known as delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol and is the substance responsible for the high you get when you smoke marijuana. It also has therapeutic effects that aid in soothing the mind, easing anxiety, and helping induce a calm state of being. It also happens to be responsible for getting the munchies.
