Getting the Desired Effect

There are major differences between THC and CBD. Tetrahydrocannabinol known as THC has always been the well known active cannabinoid found in marijuana. Recently, the United Kingdom began recognizing the medicinal benefits of the cannabinoid CBD(cannabidiol). This has lead many patients to become more interested in CBD.

CBD does not have psychoactive properties, the patient’s perception is not altered. For this reason, it is the preferable form of relief for individuals seeking the benefits of medical marijuana without the psychoactive properties.
