Tetrahydrocannabinol is one of at least 113 cannabinoids found in the cannabis flower. THC is responsible for the psychoactive properties of cannabis, which engenders the feeling of being “high.” Modern consumer THC levels average in weight from 15%- 25% of the total plant volume but vary greatly in numbers lower and higher. THC binds with Cannabinoid Receptor 1 (CB1) within the brain and this interaction plays a part with many of the body’s functions including appetite, sleep, memory and more.


Cannabidiol is often the second most prevalent cannabinoid found in the Cannabis plant. CBD has been internationally recognized for its medicinal effects and its absence of psychoactive properties.


Tetrahyrdocannabivarin is a psychoactive cannabinoid found in many strains in low quantities.


Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid
Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in live, fresh cannabis. As the plant is harvested and dried over time the THCA slowly converts to THC through a process known as Decarboxylation. This process can be sped up under intense heating.


Cannabichromene bears similar structure to other natural cannabinoids but studies show there are no psychoactive compounds in CBC. Research has shown CBC is partly responsible for overall analgesic effects and holds antibacterial, antifungal properties.


Cannabigerol is not very prevalent in most dried cannabis strains. However, by the time the cannabis plant is ready for harvest most of the CBG has been converted into other cannabinoids acting as a parent molecule.
