Historically, cannabis users have emphatically searched for cannabis with the high THC content. The demand for high THC products has clustered the marketplace with incredibly potent cannabis, and while this may appease a lot of people, high THC cannabis may not be for everyone!

CBD has significantly risen in popularity over the last couple of years due to its relaxing, pain-killing qualities. It can be difficult for novice cannabis users to know what you’re looking for with so many products available in stores. The following article will try to help you understand how CBD and THC affect you so you can make a well-informed purchase the next time you visit Day Tripper!


THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol, and it is the main compound found in the cannabis plant. The second most popular compound found in the cannabis plant is CBD, which stands for Cannabidiol.

When shopping for cannabis, it’s important to remember that products with high THC content will provide a noticeable and significant feeling or effect. CBD products possess little-to-no psychoactive ingredients; therefore, you will not be intoxicated by the effects. In high doses, CBD will likely deliver a calming, relaxing, and peaceful effect.

At Day Tripper, we want everyone to have an enjoyable and fulfilling experience when first trying cannabis products. Understandably, individuals that have used cannabis for a long time will be more likely to experiment with varying THC content levels; however, first-time users are encouraged to try cannabis products that boast near-even THC and CBD percentages.

CBD will not provide a “high” like THC; in fact, CBD products can decrease THC’s effects. CBD products emphasize health and well-being, and research indicates lower levels of stress, anxiety, depression, and mental fatigue. CBD has also been used to help individuals that experience epileptic seizures, muscle and joint pain, and inflammation. Furthermore, CBD has been tested safe for use in animals!

THC is commonly used for recreational purposes; however, it also boasts significant health benefits. Studies indicate that THC can reduce a person’s anxiety and lower their risk for panic attacks. THC is extracted from marijuana, not hemp.
