The Differences Between CBD and THC that you NEED to Know!

It’s official: CBD is mainstream. 

It seems to be everywhere these days. There are hemp oils at your favorite massage place, “CBD water” (whatever that is) at your local coffee shop–and even Whole Foods is selling CBD bath bombs now! It’s a brave new world kids, and we’re not mad about it. 

If you’re looking for marijuana-laced goods though, that’s a whole different story. Even if you live in a state that has legalized weed, the only place you can access it is at a licensed dispensary. 

But isn’t CBD just flower anyways, you ask? Why can I pick up CBD oil at my local CVS, but I can’t get over-the-counter weed gummies?

The difference comes down to one key factor: marijuana products contain THC, which gets you “high”, and CBD does not. 

Here’s the deal: while both CBD and THC are both part of the ever-growing (pun intended) world of marijuana, they have a few essential distinctions that can mean the difference between helping your anxiety…and accidentally turning up to work high. BIG difference!

We’re going to talk about key contrasts between hemp and marijuana and, more specifically, CBD and THC. We’ll start with where they both come from, go over why one is legal and the other isn’t, talk the health benefits each have, and finish up with how to get the most out of your CBD or THC use. Sound like a plan?

Let’s break it down!

Here are the main differences between CBD and THC:

Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are both natural compounds found in the Cannabis plant, which includes both marijuana and hemp. There are actually dozens of kinds of cannabinoids found in cannabis by researchers, but CBD and THC are by far the most examined and known about. 

CBD is a compound found in hemp plants and is best known as CBD/hemp oil in a wide variety of products. To be considered legally hemp (rather than marijuana), a cannabis plant must have less than 0.3% THC content–way too small an amount to get you high. But although it won’t send you to outer space, CBD is thought to have a lot of medical benefits. More on that later!

THC is the cannabinoid that you think of when you hear people talk about marijuana. It is responsible for most of the psychological effects you feel when you smoke bud because it bonds to certain receptors in your brain and can affect your sense of pleasure, memory, thinking, focus, and perception of time. 

Marijuana gets you high, and hemp doesn’t–so they must be totally different plants, right? 

Wrong! At the base level, CBD and THC are more alike than you would think!

In reality, marijuana and hemp belong to the same genus AND species: Cannabis sativa. They’re more alike than you might think, even if they have such different effects! 

CBD and THC are both very similar to your body’s natural endocannabinoids, which means that they can communicate with your cannabinoid receptors in the same way. When they do, neurotransmitters are released. These are the chemicals that convey messages between cells and play a part in your body’s stress responses, ability to sleep, sense of pain and more. 

CBD and THC are even more similar when you look close. Very close. Their molecular structure is identical! Both CBD and THC have 30 hydrogen atoms, 21 carbon atoms, and 2 oxygen atoms. They’re not identical twins though; the way the atoms are arranged is just slightly different, which translates to a drastically different effect on your body. Science is cool!

Wait…but if they’re so similar, why is CBD legal when weed that can get you high isn’t?

Great question! To answer it, we’ll have to have a mini-history lesson. Before the 1930s, marijuana actually didn’t have such a negative reputation. Hemp was used in a lot of ways in everyday American life—to make rope, paper, and more—without government restrictions or bad social implications. 

This all changed when the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (forerunner of the DEA) was formed in 1930. When prohibition ended in the US, head of department Henry Aslinger needed to find some way to sustain his job and keep his department alive. Taking advantage of spreading racial tensions (marijuana was heavily associated with black Americans and Mexican Americans), Anslinger had a big hand in pushing through the Marijuana Stamp Act in 1937, making marijuana illegal. Steeped in gross stereotypes and hearsay, this was the birthplace of the demonization of bud. Years later, the Controlled Substance Act of 1970 outlawed all cannabis plants and products during the “War on Drugs”.

For much of the 20th century, marijuana was completely illegal no matter what plant it was derived from or what THC content it had. Things didn’t change until the Farm Bill of 2018 when hemp plants were legalized in all 50 states! Thanks to this Bill, hemp-derived CBD had a sudden boom as it became legal for farmers and researchers to work with the hemp plant. That’s why it suddenly appeared everywhere, as if by magic!

What about the THC-heavy marijuana plant though? Is there a happy ending to that story? Believe it or not, marijuana is still categorized as a Schedule 1 drug, right up there with heroin, LSD, and ecstasy. Schedule 1 drugs are defined by the DEA as “drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse.” Doesn’t seem like the best fit, does it? Perhaps we’ll get to see history being made ourselves someday if they change federal law!

The different effects and uses of CBD vs. THC

Alright, you get the picture: THC gets you high, CBD doesn’t. CBD “good”, THC “bad”. End of story, right?

Not quite! There is so much more to THC and CBD than meets the eye. While generally, people think of CBD for medical use and THC as the stoner’s choice, both CBD and THC have potential health benefits that are still being studied and expanded upon today.

Here are the 6 of the most popular uses for CBD oil:
  1. Relieve pain
  2. Help with anxiety and depression
  3. Help with cancer symptoms, as well as side effects from cancer treatments like nausea and vomiting
  4. Reduce the appearance of acne
  5. Ease symptoms of epilepsy and Parkinson’s disease
  6. Reduce blood pressure and prevent heart damage

Although a lot more research is needed into all of these claims, the possibilities of CBD are exciting!

FUN FACT! Did you know that CBD does not have any known side effects according to the World Health Organization (WHO)? WHO tells us that CBD is safe in surprisingly large quantities, and the only possible side effects are actually from CBD potentially combining with other drugs/medications a person might be taking. With such a safe alternative drug on the market, we hope that someday soon more medical professionals will turn to CBD to help their patients!

People are more familiar with the effects of THC (there are a lot of “stoner comedies” out there). THC can induce a sense of euphoria because it stimulates your brain in the places that are associated with pleasure. Dopamine floods your brain, which gives you a happy and relaxed feeling. Depending on the strain and potency, THC can also heighten your senses and distort your perception of time.

Which option is best for me? 

That’s an individual decision, unique to everyone! Here’s a quick guide to choosing CBD or THC:

Choose CBD if…Choose THC if...
You want to stay clear-headed and functionalYou want to feel euphoric and very relaxed
You are sensitive to the side effects of THC like paranoia, anxiety, dry mouth, etc.You are looking to treat lack of appetite or insomnia
You need to medicate throughout the day to help with chronic health problems like anxiety, inflammation, or painYou don’t mind (or are interested in) psychological effects like heightened senses or changes in perception and thinking
Okay, so you’re interested in CBD or THC…but what’s the best way to take it?

Just like smoking bud, many people smoke or vape CBD to obtain its benefits. This might not be possible for some people with certain medical conditions though, who still want the benefits that CBD can provide! 

You can take CBD in the form of…

  • Oils and tinctures

These are liquids (usually in oil form) that are infused with CBD and dropped under the tongue in small amounts. Your mouth is full of little blood vessels that help take in the oil quickly. These are a great alternative for people who can’t take pills or smoke!

  • Creams and lotions

Plenty of masseuses and more are using CBD-infused topicals to help with muscle relaxation and joint pain. Some people have found success using CBD creams to help with skin afflictions like eczema and psoriasis as well.

  • Pills

CBD pills and capsules are more often used as a consistent remedy for seizure conditions and digestive problems. In 2018 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the first drug with active marijuana-derived ingredients to treat severe forms of epilepsy! The only drawback of the capsule form of CBD is that it can take quite some time to see effects once you ingest the pill.

  • Edibles

Edible gummies are very popular as a cheaper, easy, and inconspicuous way to take CBD. One of the big benefits is that you always know the exact dosage that you’re ingesting when you take an edible gummy!

  • Vaping

This is the fastest way to feel the effects of CBD: inhaling the vapor of CBD oil. Breathing in the compound absorbs it directly from your lungs into your bloodstream. There is still no consensus on whether or not vaping damages your lungs, though, so be sure to do your research and proceed with caution if you go this route. 

Here are just a few of the most common ways to use THC…

  • Smoking (duh)

Most commonly people smoke marijuana in a pipe, joint, or bong. Many people prefer to smoke because of the quick onset of effects, but it should be noted that smoking weed has some similar health hazards to smoking cigarettes. 

  • Vaping

Inhaling the vapor of heated cannabis plant matter is another fast way to feel the effects. Vapes are also more discreet and polite than smoking since they don’t leave a cloud of odor and the vapor disappears quickly. 

  • Edibles

There are a ton of options for edible marijuana, and many people choose this form because effects last longer than other methods. On the other hand, effects can take a lot longer to kick in, up to 2 hours depending on the person. Because of this a lot of people accidentally take more than they intend to, thinking they aren’t feeling anything at first. Definitely not speaking from personal experience here…

Whether you’re interested in CBD for its medical benefits, or you turn to THC for a good time, both cannabinoids offer different advantages based on the individual. Having a better understanding of where CBD and THC come from, their effects and the many ways to enjoy them will help you decide which one is right for you!

CBD 101: The Basics You Need to Know

We can agree that CBD has popped up EVERYWHERE these past few years, right? Right. Ok, we’re all friends here now, so let’s jump right in with the burning question…

“What on EARTH is CBD and why do I keep seeing it everywhere?”

Not to worry, you are not the only one who has noticed an uptick in CBD products outside of cannabis products. 

Recently, CBD products have been popping up everywhere. From your local Whole Foods featuring CBD lotion at the registers to the coffee shop down the street bragging about their CBD lattes to salons and spas offering CBD soaks and facials, these products have become the next big trend in health.

“But isn’t CBD a type of weed?? How can they sell it in regular stores??”

Well, yes and no. Although CBD is derived from the same plant, it is completely different. So what is CBD exactly?

That’s what we’re here to discuss. After this article, you will understand what CBD is, the benefits of CBD, the difference between THC and CBD, how to use CBD daily, and the different types. 

Let’s start with the origin story. Where did CBD come from?

CBD, or Cannabidiol, was first discovered in 1940 and is one of and over 100 known cannabinoids in cannabis plants. It makes up to 40% of the plant extract, and unlike its cousin, THC, it’s non-psychoactive, which means that it doesn’t cause the high THC does. Many people prefer CBD because there is no ‘high’ associated with the CBD products, making them the go-to for people who just need pain relief, or who want to relax a little. 

Did you know that CBD was discovered about 20 years before THC but that THC has dominated research until very recently? 

Now that we are spending more on researching CBD, we are finding that there are a multitude of ways to use CBD to assist in finding non-invasive and natural solutions for mental and physical ailments. 

These studies have assisted in the fight to end the stigma around CBD and as the studies (and potential benefits) become more publicized, CBD products have exploded. It seems like just overnight, you can get everything from a CBD Bath Bomb to a CBD coffee at your local coffee shop. 

So, why can you purchase CBD everywhere but not THC?

That’s a great question. Let’s look at the differences between CBD and THC. 

CBD is a naturally occurring compound found in the resinous flower of the cannabis plant. It can be extracted from hemp plants (cannabis plants that contain less than 0.3 percent THC) or marijuana plants (cannabis plants that contain higher concentrations of THC). 

Although both THC and CBD interact with your brain and body receptors, they do so in very different ways. CBD does not bind with your receptors in a way that can make you feel ‘stoned’ or ‘intoxicated’ like THC, and it can actually lessen the effects of THC on your body!

CBD can be ingested or smoked, just like THC but offers a solution to those who want the benefits of cannabis without having to get high. 

However, CBD is still not available everywhere, but you will be able to find it in any states that have marijuana legalized medically and/or recreationally. Additionally, CBD and THC are used to treat different conditions. 

CBD is used to help with conditions such as seizures, inflammation, pain, psychosis or mental disorders, IBS, nausea, migraines, depression, and anxiety. THC is used to help with conditions such as pain, muscle spasticity, glaucoma, insomnia, low appetite, nausea, and anxiety. Obviously there is a little bit of overlap (they both come from the same plant!), but one you can find browsing the aisles of a Whole Foods and the other (THC) you still have to go to a specific store or make sure you are legally allowed to purchase it. 

If you are specifically looking for a CBD product, it will be marked as such. Anything containing THC will have a warning label letting you know that there is THC in the product. 

You should now be able to understand the difference between THC and CBD. With that knowledge, let’s dive deeper into learning about what CBD can do for you.

What CBD Can Do For You

There are many ways that CBD can help you. Are you noticing muscle pain? Perhaps you have anxiety or depression? 

Many people claim that CBD products can help with physical and mental issues such as muscle pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. Often times, those claims are backed up by non-scientific anecdotal evidence, but some research facilities (like Harvard and the University of California) are finding hard scientific proof that CBD can help with mental illnesses and pain. In 2018, the FDA approved of CBD medication called Epidiolex, meant for the treatment of certain types of epilepsy. That is the first medication to market that has CBD in it as part of treatment. 

CBD products can be used to help ease the aches and pains that are generally caused by injuries and diseases. Which is why about 40% of people who use CBD are using it to manage pain. CBD’s anti-inflammatory effect makes it perfect for people with arthritis and general muscle soreness. It has also been known to help ease aches and pains from treatment for cancer patients. 

CBD has also helped those suffering from mental illnesses, such as anxiety and depression, manage their symptoms. CBD has been shown to have a natural calming effect that helps with relaxation. There have also been studies that have shown the benefits of CBD in those suffering from autism, schizophrenia, and alcoholism. has a natural calming effect that helps people relax and can calm their minds. 

In case that isn’t enough, there have also been some claims of specific CBD creams helping with skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, while specific oils and tinctures have been found to help with slow digestion or IBS (Irritable bowel syndrome).

There are so many CBD products, and most of them are constantly being hailed for the variety of positive benefits they offer. So now comes the big question, what CBD product is right for you?

For the most part, the CBD product you use comes down to personal preference. Asking yourself these questions can help you figure out what you want: 
  • Do I want to ingest the CBD, or would a topical be okay? 

Some people don’t like the idea of eating or drinking CBD. In this case, you might prefer a topical CBD product, rather than an oil, vape or pill. 

  • What do I want to achieve by using CBD? 

Some people use CBD for anxiety and depression. Others use it for pain relief, and other people use it to relax, find a calm headspace and get to sleep. What you need it for could determine what the best CBD product is for you.

  • How quickly do I need to see results? 

If you’re in pain or you can’t sleep, you might want to find relief in ten minutes rather than an hour. However, if you just want to relax, it can sometimes be beneficial to wait a little while.

As you choose your CBD product, just keep in mind that the main difference between all these different forms of CBD is the speed in which you’ll feel relief. Now that you know what CBD can do for you, it’s time to pick the right product.

There are five main CBD products. 

CBD can be delivered orally and topically. Of those two delivery methods, there are five basic forms of CBD products. The first is oils and tinctures, the second is vape, the third is edibles and the fourth is capsules/pills. The fifth is the only topical method: creams and lotions.

  • Oils and Tinctures

Oils and Tinctures are one of the easiest ways to take CBD and are a good choice for those who aren’t able to take pills or capsules but don’t want to vape, however, it can take anywhere from one to six hours before taking effect but can last from four to six hours. 

 Generally, these are placed under the tongue because the oral mucosa (the slightly rounded area where your tongue meets the floor of your mouth) has hundreds of tiny capillaries that absorb the compounds, which allows the CBD to take effect quickly. These oils are made primarily of CBD oil, but they also often include other essential oils, vitamins, and extracts for added benefits.

This is a great option for those looking for a quick and easy way to enjoy CBD.

  • Vape 

Vape is probably one of the most popular CBD products. This is a good choice for people who want immediate relief, and don’t mind smoking CBD. It takes as little as ten minutes for CBD to take effect, but it only lasts about two to three hours. 

Vaping involves inhaling vaporized CBD directly into your lungs through a vape pen or e-cig. You can get CBD to vape in a variety of flavors and dosages, but you do have to have your own vape pen. 

This is a great option for those who are interested in smoking something less intense than THC.

  • Edibles

Edibles are a fun, casual, and discreet way to take CBD. Often times, CBD oil is used to create CBD butter or jam, but it can also be added directly into things like pasta, lattes, brownies, and more. Edibles take anywhere from two to three hours to take effect but can produce some of the longest-lasting effects. Some have mentioned experiencing effects for up to FIVE days after ingesting the CBD edibles.

This is a great option for someone interested in taking CBD but wants to enjoy the benefits without any of the taste. 

 *With Edibles, it’s important to keep track of your dosage, so never take a CBD edible that doesn’t have the amount of CBD in it on the label.*

  • Pills/capsules

CBD pills and capsules are not the most common method, but still a great alternative for those who want to effortlessly incorporate CBD into their daily lives. CBD pills can help stomach and bowel issues and more recently, the treatment of seizure disorders (The Food and Drug Administration recently approved Epidiolex, the first high-potency CBD drug to treat seizure disorders.)

It’s incredibly easy to manage dosage with pills and capsules, but it takes around five to six hours to start feeling the effects of CBD. 

This is a great option for those who want continuous and prolonged effects of CBD.

  • Topicals

CBD topicals are everywhere! They come in the form of lotions, balms, salves, and ointments for facials, bath soaks and scrubs. CBD oil is infused into these products and they are absorbed through your skin where the CB2 receptors in your skin cells (a specific receptor that’s designed to accept cannabinoids) absorb the CBD.

CBD-infused topicals are generally used to treat muscle pain, muscle spasms, and joint pain. They tend to take longer to take effect, but the pain-relieving effects last for at least five hours. All you have to do is apply the CBD lotion, cream or ointment to an area to get a localized release. Studies have shown that some topicals can also treat some skin conditions, like eczema and psoriasis.

This is a great option for those who enjoy baths or others can use CBD for topical issues. 

Time to wrap it up.

You’ve learned about the different ways to ingest CBD and you know now that the biggest difference between these five CBD products is the speed of delivery and how long the effects last. We just have one last note…make sure you know how many milligrams of CBD you are taking before consuming a CBD product and ask a doctor before proceeding with the use of any CBD in combination with prescribed medicine.

It’s important to know that CBD is not a treat-all-end-all. Much like common painkillers, different forms of CBD may have different results depending on the person. It may take some time for you to explore what CBD product works best for your body.

We hope that this article helped you learn a little bit more about CBD and which CBD products are right for you.
