What Is CBd?
CBD, also known as Cannabidiol, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in hemp & other cannabis plants. Companies create hemp derived CBD products to interact with receptors of the Endocannabinoid System. Our goal is to supply top quality CBD products to you in the matter of a couple clicks.
Although Cannabidiol is one of the most abundant compounds in cannabis, it does not give users a “high” or “euphoric” feeling. Rather, the compound responsible for that high is called Tetrahydrocannabinol, more commonly known as THC. Because all of the products found here at Green Extracts are derived from only specially grown high CBD, low THC hemp, and follow the legal limit of 0.3% THC or less, users will not experience any type of euphoric high. Our main goal is to help you seek a natural alternative and to find a change in your daily routine.
What is the Difference between cbd and THC?
There are several differences between THC and CBD as cannabinoids. Because these differences can be overwhelming at first we are here to help. To start, the main difference between THC and CBD is that THC is psychoactive and is responsible for the euphoric “high” users of marijuana feel. CBD on the other hand does not contain this euphoric/high characteristic and in fact can actually suppress the high feeling THC gives off. Although on the structural level THC and CBD share nearly the same chemical structure and molecular mass, there is one crucial difference seen in their structures that dictates whether or not the user will be receive that “high” feeling. Pictured to your right you will notice that where THC contains a cyclic ring (location where the green arrow is pointing in THC model), CBD contains a Hydroxyl group. Now, we understand that most of you are not chemistry experts so let us simply by saying that THC has a slight difference in structure that allows it to attach to something called CB1 receptors found within the ECS (Endocannabinoid system) giving the user the “high” feeling.
Because CBD has a slight difference in structure, it attaches to different receptors found in the ECS affecting the body in other ways. These effects have been the subject of many studies over the years. To learn more please research scholarly on ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
