Many compounds are found in cannabis, but the compounds most talked about are CBD and THC. Genetically considering both the compounds have similar constitutions – 30 hydrogen atoms, 21 carbon atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms, yet they have different properties. The only difference between both the compounds is in the arrangement of the atoms.
CBD oil contains the CBD extracts from the hemp, but it may also have a trace amount of THC. The amount of THC is never more than 0.3%, which is too small to produce any psychotic effects. Some of the CBD manufacturing companies even remove all the THC content from the CBD oil. THC oil, on the other hand, is extracted from marijuana and has a blend of other cannabinoids. The THC oil offers therapeutic effect along with letting the user enjoy its psychoactive properties.
CBD oil doesn’t have psychoactive properties, and it can also counteract the psychoactive effects of THC. The small difference in their constitution makes the massive alteration in the way they affect the nervous and immune system. Both the compounds offer therapeutic benefits like alleviating the pain, reducing stress and anxiety, improving the quality of sleep, enhancing metabolism, and many more.
CBD medicinally communicates with the nervous system without causing any side-effects, while THC gives the high feeling and reduces the motor functions. It’s up to you to decide what the best CBD and THC ratio for your wellness goal and tolerance level is.
