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