What’s the Difference between CBD and THC?

CBD and THC, the two most abundant of the 113 cannabinoids found in cannabis plants, are very similar in so many ways, but they have a few key differences. THC is known for being the intoxicating component, while CBD has pretty much the opposite effect.

The Endocannabinoid System

Our bodies have the endocannabinoid system that is made up of CB1, CB2, and other receptors. When CBD is consumed it can affect these receptors and take part in the processes for which the endocannabinoid system is responsible.

CB1

These receptors are responsible for:

  • Thinking
  • Appetite
  • Motor activity
  • Short term memory
  • Immune system
  • Pain

CB2

These receptors are responsible for:

  • Skin
  • Kidneys
  • Eyes
  • Reproductive system
  • Liver
  • Cardiovascular system

Types of CBD

Full Spectrum CBD products contain up to 0.3% THC and a whole entourage of compounds, including terpenes, vitamins and minerals, and flavonoids.

Broad Spectrum

Broad Spectrum CBD contains 0% THC. To produce a Broad Spectrum CBD product it must go one step further than Full Spectrum CBD by extracting any existing amounts of THC.

CBD Isolate

CBD isolate is a pure form of CBD that is rid of its entourage through several steps of filtration.
