THC & CBD
In the current age of cannabis, much of the conversation around active ingredients comes down to THC and CBD.
At some point you’ve probably learned that THC (tetrahydrocannabinol in) is the psychoactive compound in cannabis. However, CBD (cannabidiol), the lesser known non-psychoactive compound in cannabis, is equally as important and is gaining immense popularity for its healing effects.
The way that CBD and THC contents are reflected in products is not consistent and can be a little confusing.
Many products sold at MeddiMeds contain both THC and CBD. For other products (such as tinctures, vape pens and topicals) you may also see the THC/CBD contents reflected as a ratio, which is an easy shorthand to determine the balance between THC and CBD in the products you are using. MeddiMeds also carries products that DO NOT CONTAIN THC OR CBD.
