Despite the cannabis plant containing a whole host of different cannabinoids, when it comes to understanding the difference between CBD and THC, it’s not as hard as you might think.

One of the most well known cannabinoids is THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and there is rarely an article about cannabis that does not reference the molecule. Distinguishable by its psychoactive properties, giving a distinctive buzz that has become synonymous with cannabis, THC is the principal psychoactive part of the cannabis plant.

What is CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the other key cannabinoid in cannabis. They make up just two of over 60 compounds that are found in cannabis. CBD and THC are renowned for being present in the highest concentrations, which has paved the way for a whole host of studies that aim to bring to light their purposes and benefits.

Unlike THC, CBD will not get you high – in fact, it has been found to have anti-psychotic properties and it has been known to help people who suffer from conditions such schizophrenia, severe epilepsy and other many diseases. It is this link that has inevitably placed this cannabinoid in the media spotlight. More and more people are taking an interest in exploring its benefits and possibilities as a means of helping to manage and control a range of medical illnesses.

With its strong link to the benefits of medical cannabis, medical professionals have actively explored the components present in CBD, conducting research and tests in a bid to document a proven link between CBD and the ability to treat common diseases.

Benefits of CBD

“CBD is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psycho-activity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis doesn’t get one high, makes it an appealing treatment for patients seeking anti- inflammatory, anti pain, anti-anxiety, anti psychotic, and/or anti-spasm effects, without troubling lethargy or dysphoria.”

And it is CBD’s close link to a wide range of medical benefits that gives this non-psychoactive a significant advantage as a medicine.

Medical professionals have been forced to look into CBD’s medical properties as well as its benefits. In fact, a pharmaceutical version of CBD has already been developed in the UK by a well-known drugs company – GW Pharmaceuticals, which is also now actively funding clinical trials on CBD as an effective treatment for forms of epilepsy as well as schizophrenia.
