THC

Also known as tetrahydrocannabinol, THC supports the psychoactive effects of the cannabis plant. But THC provides much more than a recreational high: the molecule continues to show profound medicinal effects, both in labs and through testimonials from medicinal users. 

THC AND CBD

THC is the world star. Of the more than 100 known cannabinoids, out of a group of up to 500 chemical compounds that cannabis contains, THC is "the chosen one". Being the main psychoactive cannabinoid responsible for inducing the "high," cannabis strains were cultivated for decades with the goal of containing ever-increasing levels of THC. Many are still farmed this way, but this has typically been relegated to the recreational market.

CBD is the cannabinoid of the 21st century. Cannabidiol has had a tremendous impact on cannabis culture. Medical cannabis has undergone a revolution caused by the emergence of non-psychoactive varieties, but rich in CBD, and CBD drugs. Low THC, CBD-rich hybrid strains like Critical + Auto CBD and Candida (CD1) are easy to grow and allow novice growers to achieve medical cannabis self-sufficiency.

THE THC MOLECULE

In addition to inducing a high in us, THC has many medicinal properties. THC has been especially effective in relieving pain and as an appetite stimulant. Additionally, whole plant medicines with a 1: 1 ratio of THC: CBD are becoming one of the most popular medicinal cannabis blends.


The valuable molecule of THC is contained within the trichomes (resin glands) of flowering cannabis. In its raw form in a healthy, green, growing plant, THC appears as its acidic precursor molecule, THCA. Converting non-psychoactive THCA to psychoactive THC requires heat. This is the reason why smoking cannabis is the most popular method of consumption. Similarly, when cooking with cannabis, heat is what unlocks the psychoactive properties.
