CBD, or Cannabidiol oil, can be found in everything from anxiety, pain and insomnia remedies to beauty products, ice cream, coffee and dog treats. The cannabinoid, which is one of more than 100 that can be derived from the buds of marijuana or hemp plants, has become a hot item in the U.S., as more and more states have moved to legalize marijuana. As a nonpsychoactive substance, CBD is different from tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), in that a user will not “get high” from consuming the oil.

THC versus CBD


While there hundreds of active ingredients in the cannabis plant, few have received so much attention as tetrahydrocannabinol, or just “THC”. This psychoactive cannabinoid was discovered in 1964 by Israeli scientist Dr. Raphael Mechoulam and has taken center stage in the cannabis world. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol is the most common cannabinoid in marijuana. It is the ingredient that gives cannabis its psychoactive effects, and is one of the most powerful parts of the plant when it comes to its medicinal benefits.
