What’s the difference between THC and CBD?

THC and CBD are both cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant, but they differ in how they interact with your body. THC offers the “high” that is most often associated with cannabis, but can sometimes produce negative side effects like anxiety or paranoia. On the other hand, CBC does not have a psychoactive reaction with your body and instead actually counteracts some of THC’s negative side effects. CBD also produces analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety properties.

How much cannabis should I smoke my first time?

When you’re new to cannabis, it’s best to start slow. Start with a strain that has a lower THC content, like the strains shown in the product section below, and only take one hit. Wait to see how it makes your feel and then continue on as necessary. For information on what and how you should smoke your first time, check out our blog, “How Much Weed Should I Smoke As A Beginner?“.
