As you explore the growing field of cannabis therapy, you will hear a lot about THC and CBD. But what exactly do these two acronyms stand for? And what do they mean? Why is it important that you know the difference?
Cannabis contains both THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidol). CBD is generally being favoured for medicinal use. THC products are preferred for pleasure and recreation. The main reason for this distinction is that THC oil gets you “high” and acts fast for pain relief. CBD oil is non-psychoactive and the ideal health therapy for most ailments. THC affects the mind, being psychoactive; CBD is non psychoactive and successfully helps to mitigate the effects of THC.
- 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.
- THC is available mainly as edibles and powerful extracts; CBD comes in the form of tinctures, drops, capsules and suppositories. Both can come in creams for muscle and joint pain.
Hemp Oil and THC Oil
Hemp and cannabis oils come from the same plant but they are different and have very different uses. The buds of the indica and sativa cannabis plants are used to make THC for psychotropic reasons – to get high and feel good. The stalks and seeds of the sativa plant are used to make hemp products in an industrialised context – material, clothes, plastic, insulation, paper, animal feed and more. Hemp has a very low THC content so cannot make you high. Hemp oil contains CBD which is known to relax users and fight pain and insomnia, amongst many other therapies. Hemp oil is also very nutritious, brimming with the perfect balance of Omegas 3 and 6 essential fatty acids. These help to fight illness.
THC vs CBD Oils
THC Oil is one of the fastest developing trends within the recreational and medical cannabis world. THC oil can be very beneficial to your health. Remember that Hemp oil and THC oil are not the same thing. Hemp oil is made exclusively from hemp seeds and does not contain any of the cannabis cannabinoids,THC or CBD, the really powerful stuff that actually does the medical healing. But hemp oil does contain negligible amounts of CBD. Hemp oil can be used for cooking and cosmetic reasons while CBD oil is purely medicinal.
