Will it work for me?
The cannabis plant contains more than 100 different chemicals called cannabinoids. Each one has a different effect on the body. THC and CBD are the main chemicals used in medicine.
THC produces the “high” people feel when they smoke marijuana or eat foods containing it. However, CBD is not psycho active at all and will not make you feel “high.” In fact, CBD actually counteracts the psycho-activity of THC!
