WHAT IS CANNABIS?
Cannabis is a beautiful plant that has many different varieties ranging from 0.1% – 30%+ THC (Delta-9 Tetrahydracannabinol) & can be grown outdoors or indoors, growing from 1/2 m – 7m. Cannabis has been used for tens of thousands of years for medicinal purposes and the only change is the advanced quality of the flowers. The entire plant can be used for medicine, however, most is from the Trichromes.
Delta-9 Tetrahydracannabinol is the most beautiful and abundant compound found in cannabis. THC just happens to have the right molecular structure to fit into special binding sites on cells throughout the body. These specific sections are now known to be parts of a larger, endocannabinoid system. As smoothly as keys fit into a lock, THC binds to cannabinoid receptors and ignites a series of chemical reactions.
In order to get THC the acid has to be removed from THCa first. Decarboxylation happens when you apply heat to cannabis. You cannot eat cannabis and expect to have a psychoactive experience. In its raw plant form, THC doesn’t actually exist in a shape that will trigger a psychoactive effect in humans. Inside marijuana resin glands, called trichomes, THC is actually found as tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa).

CBD is one of over 113+ compounds found in Cannabis that belong to a class of molecules called Cannabinoids. Of these compounds, CBD & THC are usually present in the highest concentrations, and are therefore the most recognized and studied. CBD has been shown to assist in treating numerous different types of illnesses, and does it with love.
Unlike THC, CBD does not cause a high. The reason why CBD is non-psychoactive is due to its lack of affinity for CB1 receptors. CB1 receptors are the most abundant receptors found in the brain and are the pathways responsible for the psychoactive effects of THC. CBD & THC have counter balancing effects on one another, which gives the user control over themselves when using this plant for medicine.
