THC, a molecule of chemical formulation C21H30O2, is one of the two main Cannabinoids within the Cannabis plant, and well known as the chemical that causes the psychoactive effects of marijuana.

As you well know, the agent in charge of transmitting the effects of THC is the endocannabinoid system, which is composed of the CB-1 and CB-2 receptors, the first being located throughout the human body, focusing mainly on the brain and spinal cord, influencing aspects such as appetite, or pain reduction. In the case of CB-2, they are generally found in the peripheral nervous system, and are responsible for the reduction of inflammation when activated. When we smoke marijuana, the cannabinoides that compose it activate the above mentioned receivers in greater or smaller measure in function of the level of THC that contains this marijuana. Thus, the THC can affect to the field of the memory, to the one of the concentration or to the field of the movement.

? Who discovered THC?


Rafael Mechoulam, is the scientist responsible for proving that THC is the only active component of cannabis, and that it interacts with the human body’s main receptor system, the endocannabinoid system.


Rafael Mechoulam, is considered the most important researcher on the chemistry and biology of marijuana, in his words “the most misunderstood plant in the world”. In fact, his work and dedication has been taken to the big screen, in a film that undoubtedly I recommend you, and is called “The Scientist”, whose objective is not only to pay tribute to Mechoulam, but to encourage research on the beneficial properties of cannabinoids.


The investigations of this scientist, have been very important and have given to know information that until now we did not know. Among other things, he was able to determine the structure and total synthesis of the Delta 9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) molecule. Even his research shows that the body generates its own cannabinoids, which he has called Anandamide.


If you want to know more about Rafael Mechoulam and his work, I recommend that you watch the film I named above, “The Scientist”, if you are a cannabis enthusiast you will certainly enjoy it as much as I do!




? Which has more THC, Sativa or Indica?


The varieties with the highest THC level are usually the Sativas, which always offer a “high”, which can be described as a psychoactive effect at brain level, which provides energy and makes you always have a smile on your face. On the other hand, the Indicas varieties usually have higher percentages of CBD, which modulates the psychoactive effects of THC, they are characterized by a relaxation at a physical and mental level, which in high doses can cause the ” Couch Effect “.



✨ THC vs CBD


Both are the main natural components of Cannabis, but there are antagonistic differences between them, which turn them into two elements that can even be neutralized. The main differences between THC and CBD are the following:


– The High Effect:


Without a doubt, THC is the main psychoactive component of cannabis, that is to say, it is the one that provokes the psychotropic effects in the consumption of marijuana, whereas CBD, although it is psychoactive it does not have psychotropic load.


– Side effects:


In some cases, as shown by research conducted by Rafael Mechoulam, THC can cause different side effects to different people who have consumed the same proportion of THC, some may react smiling non-stop, others relax, others suffer anxiety attacks because they simply notice that they are too open to the rest. On the other hand, it has been demonstrated through scientific studies that the consumption of CBD does not report any type of side effect.


– Sleepy effects:


One of the main reasons that cannabis users use to enter this world is that smoking marijuana helps them to get a restful sleep, and this the main culprit is THC, against CBD has a different effect, as a good antidepressant keeps you active and clean-minded. Therefore, the varieties with greater proportion of THC, among other benefits, helps to conciliate that repairing sleep that so much yearnings.


As you can see the battle of THC vs CBD, has a lot of history and a lot of crumbs, both can complement each other in favor of the medicinal benefits of marijuana, but there will always be an arduous battle between the defenders of one and the other.
