The Differences between CBD & THC
You probably have heard of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol), the two most notable cannabinoids in cannabis. While they may have similar chemical structure, they have very different properties.
THC is psychoactive. CBD is anti-psychoactive.
THC is what gets you high in cannabis. By contrast, not only is CBD non-psychoactive but it is also antipsychoactive. It prevents users from getting too high and reduces psychosis-like effects of THC. CBD is being tested as a medicine for people with schizophrenia.
