Psychoactive Effects

THC is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis, responsible for the "high." CBD, on the other hand, is non-psychoactive and does not produce a mind-altering effect

Legal Status

THC is generally classified as a controlled substance due to its psychoactive properties. CBD derived from hemp, containing less than 0.3% THC, is legal in all 50 states

Side Effects

THC is associated with more pronounced side effects than CBD. THC can cause short-term memory impairment, increased heart rate, and dry mouth

Drug Testing

THC consumption can lead to positive drug test results. CBD products contain minimal THC levels and are less likely to trigger a positive drug test.
