”THC or Tetrahydrocannabinol is the predominant chemical structure of the cannabis plant and it is most known for its psychoactive properties . But it is also very helpful for sleep. It’s good for appetite stimulation, it helps with nausea and its very good for muscle spasticity.” Tetrahydrocannabinol Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is one of 2 predominant cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant along with CBD. Besides THC and CBD, more than 100 other cannabinoids have been identified. THC is the psychoactive substance that produces the “high” associated with marijuana when it is decarboxylated and ingested. THC first starts out as THC-A which is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found is fresh cannabis plants. The process of decarboxylation changes the THC-A into THC, this can sometime occur naturally as the plant is dried. THC differs from CBD in that it causes you to feel "high". Many conditions may benefit from THC and CBD, we can help find ratios and products that will work best for you.
