CBD vs THC

Cannabis plants produce chemical compounds known as cannabinoids. These compounds interact with our bodies via the endocannabinoid system.

The two most well-known cannabinoids are THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). For decades, researchers have known that THC is responsible for the famous cannabis high. CBD can serve to balance the effects of THC, and provides a range of symptom relief and medical potential.

Adults (19+) are allowed to bring in to Nunavut up to 30 grams of dried cannabis (or equivalent) on their person or in their baggage.
