THC Free CBD, what does it mean?
THC Free CBD means the CBD product has no THC within it.
As the legal use of marijuana and other cannabis products grows, consumers and those that once frowned upon cannabis products are becoming more curious and are opening their minds to the products available on the market. This includes cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), two natural compounds found in plants of the Cannabis genus.
No THC, does this harm the quality?
No, not at all. Essentially, the psychoactive component in cannabis (THC) that causes a “high” has been removed.
Despite their striking chemical structures similarities, CBD and THC don’t have the same psychoactive effects. In fact, CBD is a non-psychoactive compound. This means CBD doesn’t produce the “high” associated with THC.
The “high” or “sense of euphoria” is caused due to THC binding with the cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors in the brain.
Research and studies have found CBD to bind very weakly, if at all, to CB1 receptors in the brain.
Should you only buy CBD with low to zero amounts of THC?
No, not necessarily. This will depend on your preferences and the laws in your country.
