Cannabis plants contain dozens of chemical compounds called cannabinoids. These naturally occurring components are responsible for producing many of the effects, both negative and positive of cannabis use. Researchers still don’t understand what all of the cannabinoids do, but they have identifed two main ones tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) as well as several less common compounds.


THC is the main psychoactive compound in cannabis plants. It’s responsible for the “high” or state of euphoria associated with cannabis use.  Levels of THC have been increasing as growers try to create hybrids with greater concentration of the compound.


CBD is non-impairing or non-euphoric. It doesn’t cause a “high.” However, it may produce many physical benefits, such as reducing pain and nausea, preventing seizures, and easing migraine headaches.


A great deal of attention is paid to the amount of THC and CBD in a given strain, but newer research suggests that terpenes may be just as impactful. Terpenes are another naturally occurring compound in the cannabis plant. The terpenes present directly affect the plant’s smell. They may also influence the effects that specific strains produce.

The path THC takes through your body is actually dictated by how you consume it. If inhaled, the cannabinoids and terpenes travel rapidly from the lungs to the blood and brain. But if you ingest THC, the path to the blood and brain is not so simple. Cannabis taken orally must first be absorbed from the intestines and sent through the liver. Any cannabinoids sent to the liver, will be metabolized by your liver cells.
