Most people know that THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical compound in cannabis responsible for a euphoric high. But, what more is there to know about cannabis’ primary psychoactive component? Whether the question comes as a newbie to the cannabis world or an experienced consumer who would like to know a bit more about the most famous of cannabinoids, THC has likely been synonymous with cannabis in your mind for as long as you’ve known about the plant.
While it’s true that THC in varying amounts will have a noticeable effect on how you “feel” from administering this cannabinoid, not all of the body’s interaction with THC is based on making you high.
THC has also been shown to be effective for treating issues related to chronic pain, nausea, insomnia, gastrointestinal issues, and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
When experimenting whether THC is right and works well for you, it’s recommended that you start small, and work your way into a product that best meets your needs.
