Curious about CBD vs THC? Though they’re both found in a cannabis plant—meaning either hemp or marijuana—using CBD (full name: cannabidiol) is a far cry from smoking weed. Like THC (or delta-9-tetra hydrocannabinol), CBD is a cannabinoid—a molecule that helps
the functioning of our endo cannabinoid system, which regulates our mood, sleep cycle, inflammation, immune response, and more.
Along with improvements in sleep and mood, chronic aches are the main reason people are turning to CBD. That’s because cannabidiol is an anti-inflammatory agent. In other words, it helps reduce the inflammation causing the pain, rather than reducing your perception of pain.
