It’s the buzziest wellness product on the market right now, but many people are asking: what exactly is cannabis? What’s the difference between THC and CBD? What types of cannabis products are available? If you’re curious about cannabis and its benefits but not totally sure where to begin, we have the answers in this guide for cannabis newbies.
What’s the difference between CBD and THC?
CBD is an acronym for cannabidiol. Harvard Health explains it like this: cannabidiol is one of the active ingredients in cannabis (aka marijuana). The pure use of CBD even has the stamp of approval from the World Health Organization (WHO):
“To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.”
THC is the acronym for tetrahydrocannabinol. THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid and is primarily responsible for that “high” feeling.
Benefits of Cannabis
Recent studies have shown cannabis can offer relief in many forms, from physical pain relief to helping combat the effects of anxiety. If the study from Harvard Health wasn’t enough, consider the following from Healthline:

“Several human studies have found that a combination of CBD and THC is effective in treating pain related to multiple sclerosis and arthritis,” Healthline says.
