Medical marijuana is a revelation in the medical field as it has been the center of research for continuous discovery of its medical effects. Compounds in it have the ability and capacity to cure illnesses especially those that leads to pain, anxiety and majority of the neurological disorders. Sought after by the patients, medical marijuana was proven to be their preferred alternative treatment for their painful conditions after failing on the use of synthetic drugs that have comparably lower potency levels.

What in THC?

Tetrahydrocannabinol is the most active compound found in medical pots as well as leading in the average volume. Moreover, this compound is the painkiller and the anxiety reliever for the patients. Most strains are rich in this content being the pioneer compound to discover in the plant. Growers choose to grow medical cannabis which is high in this compound. As it is the healing component of the medical weeds. However, too much of this can yield to buzz and the intoxicating feeling. Which is non-tolerable to the patients especially the elder ones and the children. This cannabinoid, upon interaction with the receptors of the brain, creates a high feeling. But this is sometimes at an extreme level that incapacitated patients cannot tolerate.

What is CBD?

CBD, also known as cannabidiol is the non-psychoactive component of medical cannabis that works mainly to reduce that intoxicating feeling when using medical pots as medication. It is a healing factor of diseases such as tumor, cancer and even seizures. It comes next to THC in quantity in a medical weed. Having only the medical effects without the buzzing feeling makes it a better resort for the elderly and the children who do not improve with the prescriptive drugs.

Which is better?

THC and CBD both come from the same plant. Although the latter proves to yield no high effects. The first one still has its own capacity to ease extreme pain. Furthermore, the better one is a strain that contains both the compounds. But having more of the CBD than the THC. For reason, CBD can counter the buzzing effect given by THC and optimize the pain-killing property of the same. THC can’t be pulled out that easily as it is also essential in terms of its healing component. You should not eradicate THC but reduce its volume per amount of CBD.
