THC

THC is the main psychoactive agent found in Cannabis – responsible for creating the “high” feeling. THC works by imitating the effects of anandamide, a neurotransmitter produced naturally by the human body to help modulate sleeping and eating habits, as well as the perception of pain.

THC stands for “delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol” — the scientific name for a molecule created by the cannabis plant’s external glands. When marijuana is inhaled as a vapor or smoked, or taken orally, or applied topically, it also has the ability to interact with a fundamental nerve signaling system in the bodies of humans and other animals. Tetrahydrocannabinol is used by millions of medical marijuana patients in over 20 states to manage dozens of medical indications — primarily different types of neuropathic pain, digestive disorders, and mood issues like depression and anxiety. THC is a bronchodilator used for asthma, a neuroprotective antioxidant used by NFL players, and has 20 times the anti-inflammatory power of aspirin and twice that of hydrocortisone. THC is manufactured in small resin glands on the flowers of late-stage cannabis plants called trichomes. It is within the head that the actual production of THC occurs.

CBDs

CBDs are the “medical” part of medical marijuana. These non-psychoactive oils have shown great promise in the world of health, including benefits such as decreased anxiety, decreased inflammation, reduction of psychotic symptoms, and relief from convulsions and nausea.

Cannabidiol or CBD is a component of the cannabis plant with enormous healing potential. CBD acts on the Endocannabinoid System, a recently discovered biochemical communication system in the human body that plays an important role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience. Endocannabinoid receptors respond to cannabinoid compounds that our own bodies make, and they respond to similar compounds in cannabis. Extensive preclinical research and some clinical studies have shown that CBD has strong anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, anti-depressant, anti-psychotic, anti-tumoral, and neuroprotective qualities.Recently, it was discovered that cannabidiol can change gene expression and remove beta amyloid plaque, the hallmark of Alzheimer’s, from brain cells.

Turpenes

Best known as the the oils that give cannabis varieties their unique smell and taste, Turpenes also assist CBDs by producing a multiplier affect, helping them penetrate the blood-brain barrier and affecting dopamine and serotonin production and destruction.
