What you should know about cannabis
You probably must have heard about marijuana at least once in your lifetime. However you might not know exactly what this is. Simply put, cannabis refers to a group of plants with psychoactive properties. Cannabis is also sometimes referred to as weed or pot.
Marijuana contains over 100 active ingredients. Of these many active ingredients, two of them are the most abundant. These two active ingredients are Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) & Cannabidiol (CBD). THC and CBD account for up to 40% of the plant’s extract.
Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
THC is the main active ingredient gotten from cannabis extracts. It is the main psychoactive component of marijuana products. In fact, it is the component that causes “high”, associated with cannabis use.
CBD is the second most abundant active ingredient found in cannabis extracts. CBD actually helps with several medical conditions including insomnia, pain, and anxiety.
