The highs & lows of CBD, THC & FECO


CBD & THC are the two primary cannabinoids that occur naturally in the Cannabis sativa plant, most commonly known as cannabis or hemp (although this plant is used more frequently in industrial uses e.g. fibre.)


Both of these substances interact with the cannabinoid receptors found in the human body and brain, but they differed dramatically in their effects.



CBD

Does not contain psychoactive or mind altering properties and therefore will not leave you feeling stoned.


CBD has the same chemical formula as THC, with the atoms in a different arrangement. This slight variance causes THC to create a psychoactive effect, while CBD does not.

This fact means that when you ingest CBD for medical purposes, you will more likely experience a relief of your unwanted discomfort, with little or no noticeable effect on your cognitive functioning.


Research studies indicate that CBD can be applied with effect in the following instances:

  • Pain (neuropathic, chronic, cancer-related, etc.)

  • Epilepsy

  • Multiple Sclerosis

  • Parkinsons

  • Inflammation

  • Psoriasis

  • Dyskinesia

  • Depression

  • Diabetes

  • Arthritis (rheumatoid & osteo)

  • Substance abuse

  • Heart disease

  • IBS

  • and so much more



THC*

THC is the main psychoactive component of the cannabis plant. In other words, THC is the primary agent responsible for creating the ‘high’ associated with recreational cannabis use.

This compound works, in part, by mimicking the effects of anandamide and 2-AG.

These neurotransmitters are produced naturally by the human body and help to modulate sleeping and eating habits, the perception of pain, and countless other bodily functions.


Reportably good for assisting with cancer, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, glaucoma, asthma, digestive issues and so much more.


Side Effects of THC include, but not limited to:

  • Relaxation

  • Altered senses of sight, smell, and hearing

  • Fatigue

  • Hunger

  • Reduced aggression

FECO stands for Full Extract Cannabis Oil.
