Cannabidiol (commonly known as CBD) and Tetrahydrocannabinol (commonly known as THC) are the most common cannabinoids found in the hemp plant.
They individually have different attributes and characteristics which results and varying effects when ingested or topically applied.
THC AND CBD
CBD and THC are two of over 100 cannabinoids that can be found in the cannabis plant. The hemp plant also contains up to 120 different terpenes sometimes each having different qualities.
They are the most prevalent cannabinoids in the cannabis plant and also the most widely studied in research to do with cannabis and its effects.
The levels of THC and the terpene profile in any given CBD products is an indicator of what the product will do all the effect it will have.
CBD and THC interact with each other to create a product that includes all compounds in the plant, and results in sensations and effects on the consumer. This is sometimes known or labelled as “full spectrum” CBD products.
Some initial studies in 2010 and 2018 have shown that CBD and THC combined can at times have a more affective impact on pain management.
Therefore some people sometimes find when using CBD products for therapeutic purposes that a full spectrum CBD product is more beneficial than a CBD isolate product.
