How does cannabis work?

The human body (and all other animal bodies) have an endocannabinoid system, made up of receptors known as endocannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1) and endocannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2). It is with this system and its receptors that THC and CBD interact - THC with CB1, CBD with both.

CB1 receptors are primarily located in the central nervous system, including the brain. The way in which THC binds to these CB1 receptors is what produces the psychoactivity associated with marijuana. CBD, on the other hand, interacts with both CB1 and CB2 receptors - when interacting with CB1, CBD has an affinity of counteracting some of the cerebral effects of THC; when interacting with CB2 receptors, CBD has shown potential in mitigating inflammation.

What are cannabinoids and endocannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are compounds produced by the cannabis plant, with the most common known being THC and CBD. These compounds resemble the shape of compounds produced internally, called endocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids and cannabinoids both interact with the endocannabinoid system, found throughout the body, to help keep the body and its systems in homeostasis.

What is THC?

THC is the most well-known cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant and produces the euphoric or "high" feeling associated with marijuana consumption. THC has shown to provide a host of benefits, including pain relief, an appetite stimulant, antiemetic (anti-nausea, vomiting), antispasmodic and neuroprotective, though more research is needed.

What are the effects of cannabis?

Cannabis has a range of effects based on the strain consumed. Some strains may leave you feeling happy, chatty and euphoric, while others may induce a body high, or a feeling of "couchlock."

What type of cannabis is right for me?

The unique thing about cannabis is that its effects vary from person to person. While the cultivar Sour Jack may leave one person ready to tackle the day, it may put another person to sleep. With all forms of marijuana, it is best to start with low doses and go slow when adding more to find your optimal dose.
