For example, CBD is typically used to alleviate pain from conditions such as arthritis and multiple sclerosis due to its ability to bond with your body’s cannabinoid receptors.
There are also reports of a general wellness benefit to using CBD including mental wellbeing and helping combat anxiety and insomnia, among others.
THC, on the other hand, is used recreationally and medicinally with the latter noting the plant’s ability to relieve pain and anxiety. It is also frequently used to treat insomnia, constipation, and nausea.
There is also a much stricter regulatory regime associated with medical THC than there is with CBD. This is, again, due to THC’s psychoactive element.
