So, what the heck is a cannabinoid, anyway?
Cannabinoids are compounds found in the cannabis plant. The plant is full of em. Research to date has learned about 113 cannabinoids. The most known being Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol aka THC! What a Bawse name you have THC! The second and rapidly growing respect and love would be Cannabidiol aka CBD. The plants grow cannabinoids to protect and preserve themselves from predators, temperature and UV light.
THC and CBD are two cannabinoids that have been studied the most. Others are gaining popularity. We believe the Licensed Producers in Canada will pave the way and start sharing more about CBN, CBG and other interesting cannabinoids having different affects on our endocannabinoid system (ECS).
THC and CBD have some therapeutic aspects. Unlike THC, when you consume CBD it will not cause intoxication.
THC creates a psychoactive affect, meaning it is the cause of the “high” or euphoric feeling that you get when you consume THC.
When a product contains CBD and THC, you may notice much lighter affects from THC. If CBD:THC is equal (balanced), the psychoactive effects of THC are generally balanced off.
Now, let’s be clear. If you over did it, on the THC, consuming CBD later, won’t balance off the THC. Best option, drink some water, eat some food and it’s NAP TIME BABY!
