THC or CBD, That is the Question?

This is a common question among people changing to medical cannabis as a medication. THC or CBD, that is the question? To answer this very good question, we first need to break down exactly what each substance is. What is THC, what does it do for you and why would you use it? And the same goes for CBD.

What is THC?

THC is tetrahydrocannabinol. This cannabinoid is the only dynamic psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. It is the most recognised compound in cannabis because it makes the user high – so THC is used mostly for its recreational qualities.

THC is not only psychoactive. It is also a powerful remedy like morphine. It can reduce pain and inflammation and comes without the negative side effects that other pharmaceuticals present. THC is at its best when blended with CBD as it then loses its psychoactive properties. This makes it more suitable to more people.

Ongoing studies are showing that THC can treat:

  • Anorexia
  • Cancer
  • Pain

THC has these properties:

  • Improving spasticity
  • Cancer treatment and cancer pain control
  • Treating focal suffering and excruciating fits
  • Controlling bladder grievances in multiple sclerosis.

We at Cannabis Oil Online like THC because it has great medicinal benefits, offers instant pain relief, is an appetite stimulant and does not harm the liver.

What is CBD?

CBD is cannabidiol. And cannabidiol is a cannabinoid from the cannabis plant. A cannabinoid is a chemical compound which has a certain quality, either medicinal or recreational. CBD is a very strong medicinal cannabinoid with therapeutic effects for common human ailments and chronic diseases. CBD is non-psychoactive and has no negative side effects.

Ongoing studies are showing that CBD can treat:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lupus
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Parkinson’s Disease
  • Cancer… and more.

CBD has these properties:

  • Anti-emetic – Reduces nausea and vomiting
  • Anti-convulsant – Suppresses seizure activity
  • Anti-psychotic – Combats psychosis disorders
  • Anti-inflammatory – Combats inflammatory disorders
  • Anti-oxidant – Combats neurodegenerative disorders
  • Anti-tumoral / Anti-cancer – Combats tumor and cancer cells
  • Anxiolytic / Anti-depressant – Combats anxiety and depression disorders

At Cannabis Oil Online, we like the idea that CBD has great medical value, does not cause liver damage, is a non-high remedy, fights cancer, helps treat seizures and can be used safely by children.

Now, for your uses, THC or CBD, that is the question? If you like getting high and feeling a buzz, then take THC for your ailments: pain, arthritis, depression and chemotherapy side effects. But be careful of your dosage because too much may make you anxious and even more depressed. Studies have revealed that the blend of THC and CBD is best as the CBD mitigates the psychoactive effects of the THC, ensuring it is a healing substance. CBD is not psychoactive and is legal in more places than THC is so is used more often for medical reasons.
