What are THC and CBD?

You've probably already heard of CBD and THC. These two substances are the reason behind all the hype surrounding marijuana. There are some significant differences between the two, so let's take a look at what each of them does.


The abbreviation "THC" stands for tetrahydrocannabinol. It delivers the psychoactive effects of marijuana, affecting the brain more than the body. Another substance, called anandamide, is mimicked by THC to make the brain work differently with memories, higher cognitive processes and fine motor skills.

It also affects pain, fertility, hunger and depression. Many people choose high-THC marijuana strains for its medicinal benefits. Read more about THC in my article What is THC?


Cannabidiol, or CBD, is another psychoactive substance commonly used in medical marijuana. The two interact, with CBD having an influential effect on THC, meaning they could strengthen or weaken some effects of THC. Suppressing psychedelic effects, for example, can be a great advantage in a medicinal strain of marijuana.

These are by no means the only two types of cannabinoids. The others, however, are only present in smaller quantities. Read more about CBD in my article What is CBD?

In Italy the cultivation of cannabis seeds is prohibited (Art. 28 and 73 of Presidential Decree 309/90) if you do not have a specific authorization (Art. 17 Presidential Decree 309/90)

Therefore, cannabis seeds may be used exclusively for collecting purposes and for genetic preservation and are marketed with the reservation that they are not used by third parties in conflict with the law. Cannabis seeds are excluded from Presidential Decree 309/90, which means that they are not to be considered narcotic substances (L. 412 of 1974, Art. 1, Paragraph 1, Letter B; New York single convention on narcotics of 1961 and table 1 Ministry of Health decree 11 April 2006).
