THC what is it | Cannadorra Russia

CBD Oil info

THC is one of the many chemical compounds known as cannabinoids found in hemp. It is also the most famous cannabinoid and is responsible for the “high” effect. But what else do you need to know about the primary psychoactive component of cannabis?

In order to understand what THC is, you need to understand what cannabinoids are in general. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in the hemp plant that interact with receptors in the brain and body to create various effects. There are dozens and potentially over 100 cannabinoids in cannabis, but THC is the most widely known among them due to its abundance of psychoactive traits.

cannabinoids in hemp

Why does hemp produce cannabinoids? Cannabinoids are known as secondary metabolites, which means they are chemicals that the plant produces that do not have a major role in the development of the plant. However, the main hypothesis is that the secondary metabolites act as an immune system for the plant, fighting off predators, parasites, and pests.

Because humans (and many other animals) have receptor systems that THC binds to, we can also reap the benefits of cannabinoids for both health and pleasure. This system, called the endocannabinoid system (or ECS), is a group of specialized signaling chemicals (like “keys”), their receptors (like “locks”), and the metabolic enzymes that make and break them down. These endocannabinoid chemical signals act on some of the same brain and immune cell receptors (CB1 and CB2) that cannabinoids such as cannabidiol (CBD) and Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) act on.

THC and CBD – what’s the difference?

The main difference between THC and CBD, both of which are very popular cannabinoids, is in their psychoactive effects. THC causes a strong cerebral euphoria, while CBD has no psychoactive effects at all. It basically comes down to the fact that THC activates CB1 receptors in our brain, while CBD does not. The subtle effects of CBD are primarily felt in pain, inflammation, and anxiety relief, among other medical benefits.
