THC: The Star cannabinoid
Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds that are found in cannabis that when consumed, react with brain and body receptors that cause the effects that we feel when consuming cannabis. THC being the most well-known in the various, if not hundreds of cannabinoids that are out there.
THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, is the cannabinoid responsible for a “euphoric” high. Some may feel relaxed or at peace after consuming THC, but others may feel nervous or anxious. These differences all depend on individual body chemistry, but certain strains and percentages of THC in the flower can create different outcomes as well. A majority of brands are dominant in THC and typically mixed with other cannabinoids such as CBD etc. When looking at a metric label on a product, THC is usually the very first listed. The Deeper Roots Apricot Gelato is pretty low in THC percentage at 12.57% but some of the higher strains that we carry such as Crude Boys Donkey Kick are at a whopping 46.26%. Consider consulting with a budtender on how to gauge certain percentages, and find out what is best for you! THC also may provide relief for many different medical conditions such as PTSD, Chronic Pain, Insomnia, Arthritis, Migraines or Headaches, Cancer, Multiple Schlerosis, ADHD, Appetite Loss and more!
In order to enjoy this wonderful cannabinoid, decarboxylation needs to occur, which is simply just heating up the flower in order to activate the effects. Lighting one up, or cooking it into some butter are some of the most common ways to indulge.
