Cannabis 101

CBC

Cannabichromene (CBC) is a psychoactive non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid. It was discovered in 1964 and is the decarboxylated form of CBCa found in heated juvenile cannabis. As the plant matures, the CBC levels lower, but GW Pharmaceutical was able to develop a mutated Cannabis sativa variety that has difficulties producing THC and CBD, allowing the CBC to […]

CBDV

Cannabidivarin (CBDV)  is a psychoactive, non-psychotropic decarboxylated propyl analogue phytocannabinoid of CBD found in heated cannabis. It was discovered in 1964 as a homologue to CBD, and is not a CB1 agonist but appears to activate and desensitize the vanilloid TRPV1. Preliminary research suggests CBDV is what helps differentiate strains bred specifically for treating seizure […]

CBD

Cannabidiol (CBD) is the decarboxylated phytocannabinoid of CBDa found in heated cannabis. It was discovered in 1940 by Roger Adams and is the second most abundant phytocannabinoid found in cannabis. Because it mostly affects CB2 receptors instead of CB1, it produces no psychotropic effects, and its medicinal uses can be felt immediately. Any strain containing […]

CBDa

Cannabidiolic acid (CBDa) is a psychoactive, non-psychotropic acidic precursor to CBD found in raw cannabis. CBDa predominantly binds to CB2 receptors, but like CBD, can interact with 5-HT1a serotonin receptors as well. Long-term use of CBDa has shown it to provide subtle relief of varying symptoms over time, between 3 days and 4 weeks. How […]

THCV

Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is the decarboxylated propyl analogue phytocannabinoid of THCVa found in heated cannabis, and a homologue to THC. It was discovered in 1964 and is a high-energy and relatively abundant psychoactive non-psychotropic phytocannabinoid. It seems to mimic CBD’s anxiety relief, and recent research has shown it to be fairly effective in appetite-suppression, lending to […]

THC

What is THC Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the decarboxylated phytocannabinoid of THCa and a precursor to CBN found in heated cannabis. It is the dominant psychoactive, psychotropic phytocannabinoid in cannabis, and was discovered in 1940 by Roger Adams. It’s the reason we feel euphoric, happy and hungry after consumption. Today, most cannabis strains have a THC […]

THCa

What is THCa Tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa) is a psychoactive, non-psychotropic acidic precursor to THC, CBNa and CBN found in raw cannabis. THCa doesn’t appear to interact with either CB1 or CB2 receptors, and research is sparse in terms of its effects. Raw cannabis leaves are popularly juiced or brewed into teas for their THCa content. […]

CBGVa

What is CBGVa Cannabigerovarinic acid (CBGVa) is a psychoactive, non-psychotropic acidic propyl analogue phytocannabinoid of CBGa found in raw cannabis. Similarly to CBGa, it is a naturally-occurring compound and a building block for other phytocannabinoids. Through a process of biosynthesis, it produces THCVa, CBDVa and CBCVa. CBGVa in particular has been shown to assist with […]

CBG

What Is CBG Cannabigerol (CBG) is the decarboxylated phytocannabinoid of CBGa found in heated cannabis. It is a psychoactive, non-psychotropic “stem cell” phytocannabinoid, and alongside its precursor CBGa was discovered in 1964. During cannabis’ growth, the majority of CBG is converted into other phytocannabinoids, and most strains rarely have any more than 1% of its […]

CBGa

What Is CBGa Cannabigerolic acid (CBGa) is a psychoactive, non-psychotropic acidic precursor to CBG found in raw cannabis. Called the mother of all phytocannabinoids, it is the primary phytocannabinoid in carboxylated cannabis and is considered the stem cell phytocannabinoid, first discovered in 1964 and later isolated and synthesized in 1975. Synthases, natural enzymes in cannabis, […]
