The amounts of THC and CBD vary in different dried cannabis and cannabis oil products.
THC binds to receptors in the brain and central nervous system. THC is the main psychoactive component of cannabis. There is evidence to support its efficacy in a variety of medical conditions and symptoms.
CBD affects how brain receptors send and receive signals to communicate throughout the body. CBD is non-psychoactive. CBD may help counteract the effects of THC, so if you are sensitive to THC you many want to choose products higher in CBD.
"I've had a bad experience with cannabis and I'm afraid to use it again. What should I do?"
If you've had an unpleasant experience with cannabis before, it may have been because you are sensitive to the effects of THC. While THC may be used by patients with various medical conditions, some patients may experience undesirable effects from cannabis products high in THC.
