CBD VS THC:

Cannabidiol, commonly called CBD, is the main non-psychoactive compound found in marijuana. Because it is non-psychoactive, it is not responsible for the “high” feeling many people get when consuming the drug. Whereas, THC; Tetrahydrocannabinol, binds directly to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain, leading to many of the stereotypical, Euphoric effects. Listed below are ways CBD and THC help our body systems:
