Difference Between THC and CBD

There are two types of cannabis plants - marijuana and hemp - and each yield extracts that are highly in demand these days - THC and CBD.

Marijuana is highly priced because of THC, which is popular for its psychoactive properties. In layman’s terms, THC is the substance that gives users the “high” feeling. Hemp, on the other hand, contains less than 0.3% THC but is found to have high levels of CBD. In other words, these two are completely different despite belonging to the cannabis family. Aside from these differences, both species are classified by the DEA as a schedule 1 drug under the US federal law since the 1970s. This puts them in the same classification as heroin and cocaine.
