CBD vs. THC: How the Health Benefits Compare

Using CBD and THC provides many of the same health benefits. Both work to reduce inflammation, fight pain, relieve nausea and may fight cancer. However, many people choose to use CBD and avoid THC because they prefer not to feel any psychoactive effects. This THC drawback explains why CBD is gaining popularity among consumers who are looking to take advantage of the medicinal properties of cannabis, without feeling high for it.

Here’s an easy breakdown of the health benefits associated with each compound:

CBD Benefits

  • Relieves pain
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Improves mood
  • Improves anxiety, stress and PTSD
  • Relieves nausea
  • Relieves headaches and migraines
  • Fights depression and other mood disorders
  • Prevents seizures
  • May work as anti-cancer agent and reduce tumor growth
  • Does not produce mind-altering effects

THC Benefits

  • Relieves pain
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Relaxes nervous system
  • Reduces spasms
  • Relieves nausea
  • Increases appetite
  • Fights insomnia
  • May work as anti-cancer agent and reduce tumor growth
  • Has euphoric effects

Research shows that CBD has a better safety profile than other cannabinoids, including THC. Higher doses seem to be well tolerated in humans and animals. Unlike THC, CBD does not alter heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, psychomotor or psychological functions.
