What Is THC? Learn More About Tetrahydrocannabinol

THC (which stands for tetrahydrocannabinol) is the main psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant.

THC is one of the most famous cannabinoids found in cannabis. It has the ability to activate our CB1 receptors, which are responsible for creating that “high” feeling that is often experienced and sought after by cannabis users. 

Often, people think of THC only for its psychoactive benefits. Still, this cannabinoid can also bind to our CB2 receptors in our immune systems, allowing us a plethora of potentially therapeutic and medicinal uses. This grants us access to potentially experience the best of both worlds. Plus, there are so many forms of consumption to unlock the potential benefits of THC.

Benefits of THC

There are numerous reasons why someone would want to consume THC. When combined with other cannabinoids, the molecule has been found to potentially help people deal with mental and physical ailments. THC might be able to reduce or eliminate pain, assist in appetite loss, improve the amount and quality of sleep, and aid in calming anxiety.

While THC is potentially known to decrease pain, it might also increase sensitivity in some people. In some cases, large amounts of THC might cause temporary side effects including drowsiness, dry mouth, anxiety, and euphoria. If you start to feel any of these side effects coming on, remember to stay calm, lie down, and remain hydrated. Seek medical attention if any negative effects persist beyond a few hours.

Different Forms of THC

You’re able to unleash THC's potential healing benefits through several consumption methods. Some of the different forms you can consume THC are through smoking, vaping, edibles, topicals, and sublinguals (a.k.a, tinctures, mints, etc.)

Each form of consumption offers a unique set of characteristics that make some methods more or less desirable for some consumers. For example, applying THC topically might not noticeably cause psychoactive effects. It may instead help control pain and inflammation when absorbed through the skin. On the other hand, edibles might last the longest due to digestive processes. Because of their complex journey through the body, edibles have a longer onset time compared to vaping or smoking.
