TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL (THC)

THC refers to a psychotropic cannabinoid found in the Cannabis plant. It’s a chemical compound that’s responsible for the euphoric high feeling people experience when consuming Cannabis. Basically THC works by binding to cannabinoid receptors in the brain and nervous system to produce psychoactive effects. When consuming THC, you may experience a range of short-term effects that may include euphoric feelings and can cause anxious feelings for some individuals.  If you experience an uncomfortable feeling when consuming THC, your body may react better to a CBD dominant formula.
Scientists have found that THC has a multitude of therapeutic benefits including, but not limited to the following: the ability to fight tumors, sleep aid, appetite stimulant, reduces nausea, decreases pain, and it’s a potent anti-inflammatory aid. Inflammation is an underlying factor that contributes to many modern diseases.

CANNABIDIOL (CBD)

CBD is one of at least 113 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. CBD does not appear to have the same intoxicating effects found in THC, but it still has an effect on your body. The medical potential of CBD is amazing! Trials have shown that CBD shows promise for patients with chronic conditions such as cancer, epilepsy, and auto-immune disorders. It’s also been shown to help with inflammation, depression, anxiety, ADD, acts as a neuroprotectant, and much more.
