How well do you know the difference between THC and CBD? When it comes to these two cannabinoids, there’s a lot to know. Plus, with the spotlight on cannabis, a lot of research has been taking place. New information gets released regularly and for a cannabis enthusiast, it can be hard to keep up.
So again comes the question, what do you know about the differences between THC and CBD? Let’s find out! Test your knowledge and answer this THC/CBD Crossword puzzle. Some clues have been added for your benefit below
CBD – Rather than activate your CB1 and CB2 receptors, CBD acts as an antagonist, blocking their processes. For example, Epilepsy is often caused by overactive neuroreceptors, resulting in seizures. When you introduce the right phytocannabinoids, they will take over and interrupt the effect.
Noteworthy Point – THC encourages receptor activity while CBD blocks it. So, if you have taken too much THC and are not enjoying the effect, taking CBD may help to block what’s happening.
THC – If you want to get some THC in your system, you get it from the resin of a female cannabis plant. However, it’s not that simple; Activated THC (Commonly referred to as delta-9 or delta-8 THC) is only present after the process of decarboxylation. Meaning, you need to get rid of a carbon atom and you can do this by adding heat.
CBD – This cannabinoid can be extracted from both male and female cannabis plants. Growing CBD-rich plants can be a tricky business, especially if you are looking to smoke a CBD bud. CBD can degrade faster than THC, making it a bit more finicky when it comes to the flowering cycle. Because of this, growers will usually harvest CBD buds a bit sooner. Often, CBD will be harvested from hemp.
