TO UNDERSTAND TCH, LETS UNDERSTAND CANNABINOIDS.

TYPES OF CANNABINOIDS

Endogenous cannabinoids (endocannabinoids) are cannabinoids produced naturally in our bodies. Exogenous cannabinoids (phytocannabinoids) come from the plants. Out of 480 compounds found in Cannabis, 113 elements of those compounds are cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are secondary metabolites, they are chemicals the plant produces that have no implications on the plant’s process.  The most known compound is the delta 9 tetrahydrocannabinol, which is the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. Raphael Mechoulam, an Israeli organic chemist, isolated THC from hash. So if you are wondering, Will THC get me high? Yeah, THC does make you high as a kite!

EDIBLES

A type of cannabis that has a minimal amount of THC (0.5%) is hemp. If THC is exposed to air, it degenerates into CBN (cannabinol). THC can be seen in syrups, edibles, oils or tinctures, drops, medicines and topicals including lotions and balms used for inflammation. THC and cannabis can also be used on animals like dogs for pain relief and anxiety.

Marinol, a medication made with synthetic THC, is the only currently FDA approved THC medication. Some people say THC gives you strong feelings of calm and peace, others say it may increase anxiety. The difference can be as simple as one’s body chemistry, but certain strains and presentations of THC can also create different outcomes.
