THC vs. CBD – A closer look

THC vs. CBD – A closer look

Tetrahydrocannabinol – (THC)

THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is psychoactive as opposed to CBD which isn’t, however both seem to have amazing effects on the human body. In the brain THC binds with cannabinoid 1 (CB1) receptors.  This is because THC closely resembles a neurotransmitter known as anandamide. Anandamide (which is a naturally occurring neurotransmitter in the brain), enhances the simple pleasures associated with basic activities such as eating, exercise and even sex!

Cannabidiol – (CBD)

CBD works to mute the same receptors which are activated by THC, hence resulting in a decrease of the common side effects associated with THC (such as anxiety or short term memory impairment).

CBD is actually showing a lot of promise for those suffering from debilitating diseases or illnesses such as; Chrons disease, PTSD, Dravets Syndrome just to name a few!

Effects and Application:

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) will generally make the user drowsy as opposed to CBD or CBDv (cannabidivarin) which may boost energy; hence why some strains will make you sleepy or drowsy and others will result in wakefulness or alertness!

Effects of THC:
  • Relaxation
  • Altered sense of sight, smell and hearing
  • Fatigue or Drowsiness
  • Hunger
  • Reduced Aggression
Medical Applications of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol):
  • Reduce side effects of chemotherapy
  • Alleviate symptoms associated with;

-Multiple Sclerosis

-Glaucoma

-AIDS or HIV

-Spinal Injury

 

Effects of CBD or CBDv:
  • Reduction of psychotic symptoms
  • Relief from convulsions and nausea
  • Decreased anxiety
  • Decreased inflammation

 

Medical Applications of CBD or CBDv:
  • Schizophrenia (Reduce psychotic symptoms)
  • Social Anxiety Disorder (lowers anxiety)
  • Reduces symptoms associated with depression
  • Decreases symptoms associated with cancer treatment (relief from chemo side effects, such as; suppressed appetite, nausea)

 

Looking Ahead..

Research in the field of marijuana and especially in the fields of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD or CBDv are still in the early stages. We are only just beginning to understand the powerful benefits of them, and look forward to a future where they can be better understood and studied.

Toronto Dispensary Raid “Project Claudia”

Toronto Dispensary Raid

 

 

Thursday May 26th in Toronto Dispensary Raids took place in Kensington Market and on the Danforth. With warrants on locations, police officers forcefully gained access, confiscating  269 kilograms of dry marijuana, as well as other THC products. police charged 186 people as well as making 90 arrests.  Complaints had been made that these shops were causing a “broad impact ” on the neighboring area close to location. The target was on dispensaries that were claimed to have been distributing marijuana products that did not comply with the  marijuana-for-medical-use regulations.

While some bystanders made commits indicating that this was a good thing to have happen, others were not happy to have witnessed the Toronto raid take place.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion in regards to this situation. Whether you agree or not, personally i dont think it was necessary to make a scene by smashing shop windows.  For those that used these shops to get their medication from, they are now forced to go else where. Having these shops open to the public allowed marijuana users to get their THC from a safe and reliable source. Having a place to be able to get your medication from is crucial for many people, not just marijuana users.

In these kind of scenarios its been voiced by citizens that this is a waste of authorities’ time. That they’re not putting their resources to any good. Some people believe that there are more serious things happening in Toronto that should be addressed before taking action the way the have . Actions like these have left some people with disappointment.

Before the Dispensary raid to place, Notices were given earlier on this month to 78 property owners out of the 83 known medical marijuana dispensaries. Contravening the city’s zoning bylaw, these dispensaries were informed in the notice.

If it wasn’t for events like 420 protests or people gathering to voice  their preference towards marijuana,  we wouldn’t have legalization. This is going to be a long going process to have legalization, as well as a costly matter. This is worth speaking up, and fighting for!

I have a strong opinion towards marijuana, and the good it brings to people. It has so many things to offer and not just smoking and getting high, the marijuana can bring so much more to the table!
