Benefits of CBD vs. THC
THC is the main ingredient in cannabis. It is what gives you the psychoactive feeling while CBD does not. THC can be done by eating products with THC in them such as brownies or gummies, oils, tinctures, or smokable products. This will definitely show up on a drug test.
CBD is the second chemical compound that is found in cannabis and is mostly extracted from the hemp plant but can be taken from the marijuana plant. When CBD is taken from either plant it does have small traces of THC in it but when taken from the marijuana plant it may have more THC in it. CBD is used to treat a variety of conditions as a natural treatment. It can be taken as a tincture, gummy, capsule, or oil.
CBD will not get you high, but it can be used for a variety of things such as physical and mental issues, pain, nausea, addictions, depression, migraines, and anxiety, and decreases seizures, is an anti-inflammatory, helps with insomnia, and psychosis, increases appetite, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, and for other various conditions. With CBD it is very possible you will fail a drug test.
THC will get you up to where you want to be with the psychoactive feeling. It is also good for your appetite, glaucoma, helps with insomnia, can be used as an anti-inflammatory, reduces anxiety, eases migraines, reduces nausea, relieves pain, will show up on a drug test, has psychoactive side effects, and interacts with the endocannabinoid system.
Even though CBD and THC can help with all these things they can cause side effects as well. With THC it can cause problems with concentration. That is why you should not operate any machinery when you use it. It can also cause dizziness, vomiting, drowsiness, and balance. As for CBD, the side effects of it can be nausea, diarrhea, upset stomach, or tiredness. The side effects of it depends on your tolerance for these products. Not everyone can use these products. If you can, then this is a whole new option for you to get the relief/help you need with whatever it is you may be struggling with in everyday life.
As you can see there are many benefits of both CBD and THC. They can be used for similar things for your health. It can be consumed in different forms, and it is up to you to what you try. If you are looking for something to help you with your overall health, then CBD is the way to go. If you are looking for something that will give you a trip/psychoactive feeling, then THC would be your choice. Either way, you will get most of the same results. With one, you will get an upper feeling and with the other one, you won’t. Everybody is not the same. So, whichever you choose to try or do, just keep in mind to start with a low dose and work your way up until you get to the right dosage that works for you.
