The layman often asks: THC oil or CBD oil? Here Cannabis Therapy is reviewing the difference between the two cannabinoids to highlight the pros of both cannabis oils.

Reviewing THC and CBD: What is the Difference?

THC and CBD are cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant. Cannabis oils contain differing degrees of these chemical compounds. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the psychoactive chemical compound which causes a euphoric feeling. Cannabidiol (CBD) is the cannabinoid with no side effects but which is an instant panacea. Reviewing the difference between CBD and THC highlights how each cannabinoid can influence cannabis oil. They treat overlapping illnesses.

Blend CBD and THC to Heal Disease

Cannabis oil infused with CBD or THC is extremely beneficial in treating pain, inflammation, anxiety, nausea and vomiting, appetite issues and muscle spasms. THC is psychoactive and CBD is anti-psychotic. A blend of more CBD to less THC is non-psychoactive and a very useful medication.

CBD can modulate the psychoactive properties of THC when they are used together to treat things like pain. This is called the Entourage Effect. It happens when the various compounds and chemicals in the cannabis plant cooperate to create a combined effect that is greater than their effects when used alone.

Reviewing CBD: Treat Numerous Ailments

CBD is not intoxicating. Use it to treat insomnia, anxiety, stress, spasticity, nerve and joint pain. THC, on the other hand, is a recognised pain killer, anti-inflammatory, appetite stimulant and can also treat nausea and vomiting, anxiety, depression, muscle spasms and nerve pain.

Cannabinoid medications are now specifically prescribed by doctors for precise health issues. Some of these are called dronabinol and nabilone (capsules) and nabiximol (oral spray). The best cannabis oil is derived from medical grade high quality, organic cannabis, not affected by chemicals or pesticides.

Reviewing THC and CBD: Which Does What? 

  • THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid in the cannabis plant – out of hundreds of different cannabinoids. It interacts with receptors in the brain, hence the feeling of being high, or euphoric. It is therefore able to control pain, protect nerves and assist with the formation of new neurons in the brain.
  • CBD is a very common and popular cannabinoid. It offers so many benefits to human health that it is fast becoming the next big alternative medication. It does not make the user high and can also mitigate the effects of the high that the THC causes. Research is ongoing – CBD can treat numerous common conditions and chronic diseases, including cancer.

THC can assist the body as an appetite stimulant, pain reliever and anti-inflammatory. CBD has numerous benefits for the body especially inflammation, energy and pain.
