There are numerous cannabis strains, and first of all we will explore different Cannabis strains, and their properties. They all have varying ratios of cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Cannabis oil is extracted from cannabis, because it contains numerous chemical compounds, called cannabinoids. The most prominent cannabinoids increasingly used to treat various ailments, are (CBD) cannabidiol, (THC) and tetrahydrocannabinol. Superior cannabis oil comes from medical grade, high quality, organic cannabis plants. What’s more, chemicals or pesticides do not affect it.
THC and CBD are derived when heat is applied to cannabis, and cannabis acids are activated to produce the cannabinoids. When THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid) is heated, it creates THC. Plus, when you heat CBDA (Cannabidiolic acid), it forms CBD. There are eight main cannabinoid acids that cannabis produces. When they get hot, they become cannabinoids. The others are:
CBGA (Cannabigerolic acid) – CBG (Cannabigerol)
CBCA (Cannabichromenic acid) – CBC (Cannabichromene)
CBGVA (Cannabigerovarinic acid) – CBGV (Cannabigerivarin)
THCVA (Tetrahydrocannabivarin acid) – THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin)
CBDVA (Cannabidivarinic acid) – CBDV (Cannabidivarin)
CBCVA (Cannabichromevarinic acid) – CBCV (Cannabichromevarin)
Many cannabinoid acids have antibiotic, or insecticidal properties. The cannabis plant makes these compounds to protect itself.
A Closer Look at THC and CBD
Out of hundreds of different cannabinoids, THC is the primary psychoactive cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. It interacts with receptors in the brain. This gives a feeling of being high, or euphoric. In addition, it controls pain, protects nerves, and assists with the formulating new neurons in the brain.
CBD is an extremely common and popular cannabinoid. It offers a large number of health benefits to humans, and animals. Furthermore, it is fast becoming the next significant alternative medicine. It does not make one high, and can mitigate the effects of the high that the THC causes. Research is ongoing and reveals that CBD can treat numerous common conditions and chronic diseases, including cancer.
Main Differences Between CBD and THC
THC affects is psychoactive, and therefore affects the mind. CBD is non-psychoactive and certainly mitigates the side effects of THC. THC assists the body as an appetite stimulant, pain reliever and anti-inflammatory. On the other hand, CBD has numerous benefits for the body especially alleviating inflammation, and pain. It balances our bodies and relieves exhaustion, insomnia and stress.
THC is available as edibles and powerful extracts. CBD is available in tinctures, drops, capsules and suppositories. However, both are in creams for muscle and joint pain, and inflammation.
