Cannabis oil is becoming increasingly popular among recreational users, and for good reason, its many potential therapeutic benefits. Cannabis oil comes in many different varieties, and each has its own unique properties. Some cannabis oils are high in THC, while others are rich in CBD.
But what’s the difference between CBD oil and THC oil? And what are the benefits of each one? Read on as we explore the differences between CBD and THC oil, and how it affects your body.
CBD Oil vs. THC oil
When shopping for cannabis oils, it’s important to know the difference between CBD and THC. Cannabidiol (CBD) and Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the most famous cannabinoids and they’re the active chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant.
The main difference is that THC causes a psychoactive high, while CBD doesn’t have any psychoactive effects. Because of this, CBD is associated with medical use while THC is mainly used for its recreational benefits.
Other notable differences are;
- THC and CBD are found in both cannabis and hemp. But, cannabis has more THC than hemp, and hemp has more CBD.
- CBD and THC have the same molecular structure, but they are arranged in different ways. This small difference is what causes CBD to have different effects on your body than THC.
- CBD is well tolerated, even in large doses. However, high THC use may be connected to long-term negative psychiatric effects.
Understanding the Labels
When you first start shopping for CBD oils, the selection can seem overwhelming but the label of the product will tell you how much THC or CBD content is in that product.
It is also important to know that CBD oils come in three forms;
- CBD isolate oil is the purest form of CBD oil available, as it contains no other cannabinoids or natural compounds found in the cannabis plant. CBD Isolate contains zero THC and is a great option if you are looking to avoid THC.
- Full Spectrum CBD oil are oils that often contain higher amounts of CBD, as well as some THC (up to 0.3%). Some users suggest that this kind of oil is better than CBD isolate because the THC and CBD interact together to cause the “entourage effect.”
The “entourage effect” is a theory that the different compounds in cannabis work together (CBD and THC, plus other chemicals such as Terpenes) to be more effective than just taking cannabidiol by itself. It’s also believed that various terpenes, THC, and CBD contents can have varying effects on users depending on the strain.
3. Broad-spectrum CBD oil falls in between isolate and full spectrum. It is a type of oil containing mostly CBD, but also small amounts of other cannabis compounds. But some products may have trace amounts of THC.
Most THC oils are formulated to be used in vape pens or vape carts. However, some THC oils are also suitable for use with a dab rig. THC oils can also be ingested sublingually or used to make edibles.
What is THC Oil Used For?
THC is the cannabinoid that people are typically affected by when they consume cannabis. This cannabinoid is famous for creating a cerebral high. This is why cannabis oils with a higher THC content are used more recreationally than therapeutically.
How do you take THC oil?
There are many ways to consume THC oil. You can consume THC oil in a tincture, vape pen, concentrate, or even in edible hash oil. There are a variety of ways to consume THC oil.
You would choose your THC oil the same way you choose your flower. Look at the breakdown of THC, CBD, and terpenes to determine the effects you’re looking to experience.
How does THC affect your body?
When THC binds with your CB1 receptors, it can cause a dopamine release that makes you feel happy and relaxed. THC can also cause a physical response, such as an increase in appetite. Additionally, THC can affect different parts of the brain to produce unintended effects, like changes in memory, focus, mood or movement.
The amount of THC in oil can make you feel really high, or just a little buzzed. It depends on the strain of the plant used to make the oil. If the plant has more CBD, the CBD will counteract the effects of the THC in the oil. The type of terpenes in the plant can also change the level and effects of the high.
What is CBD oil used for?
CBD users claim that it can help ease anxiety, calm a pacing mind, help promote sleep, reduce inflammation, and treat pain.
How does CBD affect your body?
Like THC, CBD also interacts with the receptors in the brain, such as opioid receptors which control how the body experiences pain. It also interacts with the glycine receptors which control serotonin, a brain chemical that affects mood.
How do you take CBD oil?
There are many different ways to take CBD oil. Some popular methods include edibles, topicals, and vape pens. Vape pens are especially popular among people who use CBD for medicinal purposes because the effects are felt almost immediately.
Topicals are also becoming more popular, especially for people who want to target specific areas where they are experiencing pain or discomfort. A topical is a cream you apply directly to the skin.
