THC vs CBD – What’s the Difference?


We get asked a lot of questions. The number one question people have is what is the difference between CBD oil and NanoSoluble, a CBD oil alternative that takes advantage of the principles of water-solubility for effective CBD delivery in the human body. The next question we hear quite frequently is “What’s the difference between THC and CBD?”

In a nutshell, the answer is that THC is the psychoactive compound found in marijuana and hemp. It is what makes you experience the feeling of being high when you smoke pot. CBD does not make you high, which is why NanoSoluble CBD can be such is a good option for the countless people who are looking for relief from anxiety, chronic pain, insomnia and a host of other things.



“Cannabis is a plant that makes a thick substance full of compounds called cannabinoids. There are more than 100 of these chemicals in cannabis. They cause drug-like reactions in your body, the experts at WebMD say. “CBD (cannabidiol) and THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) are the most common cannabinoids found in cannabis products.”

If that’s too technical for you, try this, also from WebMD, “THC and CBD are in both marijuana and hemp. Marijuana contains much more THC than hemp, while hemp has a lot of CBD.”

And if you’re a real science geek (like many of us at Canasol Labs, the makers of NanoSoluble CBD!), you may be interested in something else the experts at WebMD shared: “CBD and THC have the same chemical formula — 21 carbon atoms, 30 hydrogen atoms, and two oxygen atoms. The difference lies in the way the atoms are arranged. That gives CBD and THC different chemical properties, and they affect your body differently.”

Pretty cool, right? The technical name for the hemp plant that we make our water-soluble CBD from, cannabis sativa, may make you think it’s a form of marijuana, cannabis indica, but hemp has little to no THC. We hope this information allows you to order NanoSoluble CBD with confidence. We look forward to serving you.
