With the growing legalization of medical and recreational marijuana in states across the country, as well as growth in use of CBD and Delta 8, what actually are the differences between these substances?
To delve into this question, Larry Marnett, Ph.D., dean of the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Basic Sciences, for the school’s monthly Lab-to-Table Conversation, moderated a discussion on Sept. 23, 2021 about the science of marijuana and the current legal context for its use. This is a short portion of the conversation focused on the difference between marijuana, CBD, and delta 8.
CBD is an anti-inflammatory, which deals with any type of inflammation. CBD can be used instead of ibuprofen or meloxicam and it’s good for anxiety. Dr. Michelle Weiner, Interventional Pain Management Physician with Baptist Health South Florida, explains other uses and benefits for health.
****UPDATE**** Since publishing this video I have found a couple of manufacturers that do regular lab analysis for purity. You want to be able to see the Certificate of Analysis (COA) for each batch. Charlottes Web is a prime example. https://www.charlottesweb.com/batch-reports It is also important to look at the date on the COA if it is not by batch. For example, some of the COAs from Hempland USA and NuLife CBD are from 2019. Potency and purity can vary from batch to batch.

CBD or cannabidiol has become a popular go to drug to use for a variety of problems. There’s only one FDA approved CBD prescription medication – Epidiolex. It’s approved for a specific kind of seizure disorder. But you can get CBD without a prescription and it’s being marketed for all kinds of problems – pain, anxiety, PTSD depression and ADHD among others.
However, there really isn’t strong research evidence showing that CBD consistently and effectively treats these disorders. There have been several organizations that have analyzed data and conducted their own research and to date the evidence is still inconsistent on the ability of cannabis and especially CBD alone to improve these disorders.
The good news IS, the research on the medical use of cannabis has not stopped. So just because we don’t have good evidence now doesn’t mean it won’t come. The drug Sativex is approved to treat neuropathic pain and other types of pain. But it’s not available in the United States, it’s still in the clinical trials phase in the US. However, this drug, contains a 1:1 ratio of THC to CBD.
Does this mean we really do need THC to get the therapeutic affect of cannabis? If so, that could mean taking CBD alone is a waste because it subjects you to side effects without giving you enough benefits. These are questions still to be answered.

CBD stands for Cannabidiol. It is becoming increasingly popular for use in the treatment of arthritic pain. The surgeons discuss the use of CBD oil. It can be ingested or applied topically. There is little evidence available in the literature regarding efficacy at this point, however, more studies are being performed. The risk of addiction appears to be low. Anecdotally there appears to be some benefit for some people when using CBD oil in the treatment of arthritic pain.
