Week 4 answers to “What is the difference between THC and CBD?”:
The short answer is that THC, the primary psychoactive compound in marijuana, is toxic (i.e., poisonous). That’s why drugs are called “intoxicants.” All poisons damage the user’s brain. Marijuana is toxic because it ironically perverts one of its natural functions.
By sheer biological coincidence, some of the 140+ chemicals produced exclusively by cannabis plants, collectively known as cannabinoids, most notably THC, can interact with our existing human brain chemical system called the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). They only named the ECS that when they discovered how THC makes users high. It’s quickly absorbed into the bloodstream and goes right to the brain, where it somehow partially fits unto the neuron receptor slots meant for endocannabinoids-close enough to “trick” the brain and allow it to bind with, or cover, the receptor. Without drugs, our natural endocannabinoid, a neurotransmitter called anandamide, is sending signals.
