What is THC? How is it Different from CBD?
CBD has burst onto the world platform, and the spotlight is on this little superstar of a product. Celebrated as the new best thing and embraced by industries across the board.
But this little “Rockstar” has been working its way around the world for thousands of years.
Dating back as far as 2737 B.C., the plant was popular throughout Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and India, and ancient physicians prescribed it for everything from pain relief to earache to childbirth.
Relatively new to the west Cannabidiol (CBD ) was first extracted from the cannabis plant in the 1940s by Professor Roger Adams, whose research also lead to the discovery of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and it’s psychoactive properties. CBD did not.
Unaware of the success of the gem of a discovery he had made until years later when further research proved the role cannabinoids played on the Endocannabinoid system.
What is the Endocannabinoid system?
Well, it is the name given to the communication system of neurotransmitters and receptors that regulate many of the body’s functions, like pain, moods, and memory.
CB1 and CB2 are two primary receptors within the Endocannabinoid system which respond to cannabis.
CB1 receptors, which affect the brain and spinal cord, are more likely to have the psychoactive effects, according to Jeffery Raber of California-based cannabis lab.
This is the receptor that THC interacts with which may explain why people experience the “high.”
CBD interacts with the CB2 receptor and the body benefits from the medicinal effects but without the psychoactive reaction.
Basically, CBD and THC have similar medicinal properties, but their interaction with the endocannabinoid system, influence different reactions.
