Cannabinoids

THC

or tetrahydrocannabinol is the psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis, which leads to that feeling of being “high” or “stoned”. In raw cannabis, THC comes in its deactivated form of THC- A (tetrahydrocannabinol- acid); in order for it to become activated, it must be heated (or “lit”).

CBD

or cannabidiol is another cannabinoid found in cannabis. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce a high or feeling of intoxication. Preliminary research suggests that CBD can help block or lower some of the effects of THC. Research around the world is looking at evidence for the therapeutic uses of CBD.
