CBD or THC : Which is Better for Your Condition?

There are over 100 cannabinoids in cannabis with THC and CBD being the most well-known. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the main compound in marijuana that is familiarized by many, as THC holds psychoactive properties therefore giving off the ‘high’ sensation. However, the discussion of CBD is on the rise. What exactly is CBD oil? CBD and THC both contain almost identical compounds but CBD does not produce a euphoric effect. So, which is better for treating your condition, THC or CBD?


Treating Medical Ailments with THC and CBD

As previously mentioned, THC and CBD both contain many of the same medical benefits, providing individuals relief from a number of medical conditions. Some may prefer CBD when treating their chronic conditions, as it’s a great choice for patients looking to keep a clear mindset with no high sensation. When it comes to treating chronic ailments, CBD and THC are both great treatment options to consider.


CBD is often used to help treat:

  • Seizures 
  • Chronic pain 
  • Inflammation 
  • Depression
  • Anxiety 
  • Nausea 
  • Migraines 


THC is often used to help treat:

  • Persistent muscle spasms 
  • Chronic pain
  • PTSD
  • Nausea 
  • Migraines
  • Anorexia 
  • Glaucoma 
  • Insomnia 
  • Cachexia 


However, there are a number of cannabis strains that are higher in CBD than THC, providing patients with extra relief with a lower psychoactive feeling. A few of these strains include, Harlequin, Sweet & Sour Widow, and Pennywise. If you reside in Maryland, or a state with legal marijuana, it is highly encouraged to apply for your medical marijuana card. There are treatment options available that could provide a sigh of relief from your chronic conditions, even without the THC high.
