• THC affects the brain by binding to naturally-occurring CB-1 receptors in the central nervous system. It accounts for feeling ‘stoned’ or ‘high.’
  • CBD is a differently-shaped molecule that binds to CB-2 receptors in cell and body tissues outside the central nervous system. It does NOT make you stoned or high. In fact, CBD is antagonistic to the marijuana high; it actually prevents THC molecules from binding to the brain’s receptors (hence the reason why it’s often used to subdue the ‘paranoia’ or ‘speedy’ effects of super-potent THC strains).
