Which Has Better Health Effects THC or CBD in Marijuana?

In a recent study titled “The Association between
Cannabis Product Characteristics and Symptom Relief,”

published in the journal Scientific Reports, UNM
researchers Sarah See Stith, assistant professor in the Department
of Economics, and Jacob Miguel Vigil, associate professor in the
Department of Psychology, found that THC and CBD contents were the
most important factor for optimizing symptom relief for a wide
variety of health conditions.

Cannabis is rapidly gaining popularity as a mid-level analgesic
and promising substitute for prescription opioids and other classes
of medications, which often carry undesirable side effects,
dangerous drug interactions and risk of death. Presently, federal
barriers restrict researchers from conducting cannabis
administration studies in the U.S.

One of the real shockers, to me anyway was the finding
that THC has more health benefits than CBD.

I have done some research (no, not smoking it), and CBD has
always seemed like the compound in marijuana that had health
benefits while the THC in Marijuana just got people high. I was not
alone in that thinking .

Jacob Miguel Vigil, one of the researchers, and a well
published author
of papers as well had this to say

Despite the conventional wisdom, both in the popular press and
much of the scientific community that only CBD has medical benefits
while THC merely makes one high, our results suggest that THC may
be more important than CBD in generating therapeutic benefits. In
our study, CBD appears to have little effect at all, while THC
generates measurable improvements in symptom relief. These
findings justify the immediate de-scheduling of all types of
cannabis, in addition to hemp, so that cannabis with THC can be
more widely accessible for pharmaceutical use by the general

Here in Canada we see lots of news on Marijuana health benefits
since the legalization of Cannabis last November. I am sure that
studies like this will be interesting in the public conversation as
most people would not want to admit that there is any health
advantages to getting high even while
CBD oil
is a non psychoactive compound that people and doctors
are recommending
for stress relief
as well as treating of mental illnesses
