CBD vs THC

Though they share the same source plant family (cannabis), there is a huge difference between CBD and THC — both in the effect they have and the way they chemically interact with your body.

Until recently, CBD was somewhat stigmatized and not taken seriously as
a potential medically therapeutic agent due to its chemical proximity to THC (the chemical that creates an intoxicating “high”) We hope this will explain the benefits of CBD.
