What are cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are an incredibly important component in cannabis because they are the chemical compounds that are secreted by the flower and have different effects (both mental and physical). The two most common types of cannabinoids we will focus on in this article are THC and CBD.

What is THC?

THC (or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is the psychoactive compound found in the weed plant, which is most commonly associated with the feeling of happiness, uplifting and also hunger. THC binds strongly to receptors in the brain, which is why you feel "euphoria" after consumption. THC causes the feeling of being ''high''.

What is CBD?

CBD (also known as cannabidiol) is the non-psychoactive compound found in the marijuana plant. CBD most commonly causes you to feel relaxed and supple and relieve some types of pain.

All cannabis strains have different concentrations of THC and CBD. There are also many other (but less known) cannabinoids. It's best to find your favorite cannabis strain and calmly test what kind of effect it has.
