The main difference between CBD and THC is the effects they have on you. Simply put, THC gets you ‘high’ while CBD won’t.
THC can be very intoxicating. In large enough doses, THC can change a user’s perception of reality and influence their behavior, including higher anxiety and increased paranoia.
CBD, on the other hand, can actually counteract the effects of THC and does not alter perception in any way. Studies have suggested CBD can help with social anxiety, panic attacks and many other conditions.
