Different strains of cannabis have different and higher CBD or higher THC levels.
CBD is the
abbreviation for cannabidiol, the cannabinoid second only to THC
when it comes to average volume. Recently, research has shown
CBD to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety
properties without the psychoactive effects, such as getting
high. Its use looks promising to combat Crohn’s disease, PTSD,
multiple sclerosis, and Dravet’s Syndrome.
THC is one of over 480
different compounds present in the cannabis plant. So far about
85 have been identified as cannabinoids The most well known of
these compounds is the delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol or THC.
Bottom line, THC is the
stuff in cannabis that makes us high, while CBD is the stuff in
cannabis that is used for medicinal purposes and does not make
us high. Neither has a lethal dose.
marijuana is the most-consumed illegal drug in Germany, but as

prescription if, for example, they suffer from chronic pain or
a serious loss of appetite due to an illness. German health
insurance providers also now must cover the costs of cannabis
