Although THC and CBD are both cannabinoids, chemical compounds naturally occurring within the cannabis plant, they have very different effects. THC and CBD both have medicinal benefits and work well together along with other cannabinoids, flavonoids, and terpenes. Although they both have many good qualities only THC has negative effects which makes CBD a better choice for many wishing to find relief with cannabis. Here is a short list of the main and most prominent THC and CBD differences.
Please note: CBD from marijuana and CBD from industrialized hemp ( both strains of cannabis) are the same chemical compound, cannabinoid cannabidiol. The difference is that CBD from industrial hemp contains little to no trace amounts of THC. Also, industrial hemp is exempt from the drug code. ( see our page Is CBD Legal )
