It’s National Cannabis Awareness Month! To celebrate, we want to provide some insight around CBD and THC.
Do you ever wonder what the differences are between CBD and THC? And, are you curious as to which benefits your different health needs? If so, here are some major points for you to know so that you can make educated decisions about your health.
- CBD vs. THC and legality: The issues of legality for both CBD and THC in the United States are evolving regularly. All forms of cannabis are illegal in states that haven’t legalized it. Marijuana and THC are on the list of controlled substances, so they’re prohibited under federal law. However, 20 states plus Washington, D.C., have passed cannabis-related laws making medical marijuana with high levels of THC legal.
- CBD vs. THC and medical benefits: CBD and THC have many of the same medical benefits. They can provide relief from several of the same conditions. However, CBD doesn’t cause the euphoric effects that occur with THC.
- CBD vs. THC and side effects: CBD is well tolerated, even in large doses. Research suggests any side effects that do occur with CBD use are likely the result of drug-to-drug interactions between CBD and other medications you may be taking. THC causes temporary side effects.
- CBD vs. THC and drug testing: Cannabinoids, like THC and CBD, are stored in the body’s fat. They can show up on drug tests for several days or weeks after you use them. Not every drug test will be able to detect CBD, but CBD-sensitive tests are available.
