THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the psychoactive chemical compound that produces the “high” when consuming cannabis. The higher the TCH content, the stronger the strain, in most cases. As for CBD, which stands for cannabidiol, this is the compound usually associated with medical marijuana strains. It’s not psychoactive (it won’t get you “high”), and has many medical uses. It can help people with a number of diseases and maladies, and is showing promise as an effective pharmaceutical.
