Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds that act on the receptors within your endocannabinoid system.
Cannabinoids interact with our limbic system (the part of the brain that affects memory, cognition and psychomotor performance) and mesolimbic pathway (activity in this region is associated with feelings of reward) and are also widely distributed in areas of pain perception.
Cannabis is one of the safest intoxicating substances on the planet.
CBD is a cannabinoid found in hemp and cannabis plants. Unlike THC, CBD attaches to receptors distributed throughout your body and mind for a relaxing, “body high.” CBD delivers very clear-headed, functional effects without the psychoactive high associated with THC. If you’re sensitive to the side effects of THC (e.g., anxiety, paranoia, dizziness), high-CBD products might be your magic potion.
CBD stands out because it is both non-intoxicating and displays a broad range of potential medical applications including helping with pain, anxiety, inflammation, and seizures.
High-CBD products are a great choice if you medicate throughout the day to control pain, inflammation, anxiety, or other perpetual conditions.
THC is the widely known psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. THC binds to receptors in the brain, which is why consuming THC results in a psychoactive high.
THC activates the brain’s reward circuitry, which feeds our emotional and memory processes and releases a feeling of euphoria. The activity in these regions produces pleasurable sensations and emotions that encourage us to appreciate a good hug and a good meal.
THC has many of the same benefits as CBD. THC is an excellent choice if you’re seeking an elevated mood, a better night’s sleep, and an active appetite along with your pain and anxiety relief.
