THC Edibles and CBD Edibles: What are the Differences?

If you’re looking for cannabis edibles, you may have seen several different ones advertising THC edibles or CBD edibles. But do you really know the differences between them? While CBD is often used for wellness or medical reasons, THC is much more often used to induce a “high”. Read on to find out the main differences between THC edibles and CBD edibles and how you should go about choosing between them.

 

THC vs. CBD

Both THC and CBD come from the cannabis plant. However, they both have quite different effects on the human body. THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the part of the marijuana plant which causes psychoactive effects or the “high” that people often associate with weed edibles. CBD, or cannabidiol, on the other hand, contains a non-psychoactive natural compound.

Both THC and CBD molecules are arranged with the same number of the same kinds of atoms, but they are arranged slightly differently. This changes the way that our brains react to each of the different compounds, as our brains’ cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors engage with THC but not with CBD.

 

Because CBD doesn’t give the same intoxicating effects as THC does, many people choose to just use CBD. This is because CBD may be useful in reducing the symptoms that come with many health conditions such as pain management, inflammation, seizures, nausea, migraines, anxiety, and stress relief. Studies are being conducted to learn more and verify these claims. THC might be able to provide relief for some of the same symptoms but can also give the user some psychoactive effects often associated with being ‘high’.

THC however, can have much stronger effects. If you take too much THC you may experience some stronger side effects such as nausea, headaches, fatigue, diarrhoea, dizziness or a dry mouth. Be sure to keep an eye on the dose you are taking and the potency of your edible before taking any, and wait at least an hour or two after taking an edible before taking any more, even if you feel it isn’t working. This is because edibles can take a lot longer for the effects to be felt than smoking.

When it comes to edibles, there are a lot of options on the market. With everything from brownies to cookies to gummies and more, there are so many different types of food available that contain cannabis. Additionally, there are some edibles available that only contain THC, some with only CBD and some with a combination of both. Edibles are a good way of ingesting marijuana if you are choosing not to smoke. Edibles generally take around 45 minutes to 3 hours to kick in properly and let the user feel their effects fully.

Keeping on the right side of the law

In Canada, both THC and CBD are now legal, although each province has its own restrictions around this. For example, different states will have different possession limits and minimum ages for consumption, as well as restrictions on where cannabis is allowed to be used publicly. If you are going to start using cannabis or taking cannabis edibles, then be sure to check all of the different laws in your state or province to make sure that you are always acting within the law when it comes to handling this highly-regulated substance.

It is also important to note that only those who hold a federal cannabis licence are allowed to grow cannabis to sell it. This is to ensure that all cannabis products that are sold through retailers meet the strict safety requirements and have a controlled dosage.

If you are looking to buy edibles, then there are several things that you should look out for. If you are going to order edibles online then make sure that there are strict age verification and shipping procedures and other signs that will help you to identify a legal cannabis retailer.

When it comes to edibles, the effects you are looking for and your reasons for consuming cannabis should be enough to guide you in the right direction. If you are looking for a wellness product or to take cannabis for medical reasons, then CBD might be best for you, but if you are looking to achieve a high, then opt for THC edibles.

 

Conclusion

As THC and CBD possess many differences, despite coming from the same plant, it’s important to understand which is which. What you want from your experience depends which product containing THC, CBD, or both you wish to buy and use. Dosage is a secondary, though, important factor once this decision is made.
