Cannabis 101

When cannabis is consumed, cannabinoids bind to receptor sites throughout our brain receptors called CB1 and body CB2. Different cannabinoids have different effects depending on which receptors they bind to. For example, THC binds to receptors in the brain whereas CBN (cannabinol) has a strong affinity for CB-2 receptors located throughout the body. By aiming the right cannabinoid at the right receptors, different types of relief are achievable.

This concept is the cornerstone of cannabis as medicine, and the results are so promising that these cannabinoids have been synthesized for legal prescription use. 

Cannabis contains at least 66 types of cannabinoids, many of which have documented medical value. Products and strains have been developed to deliver larger doses of different cannabinoids, so knowing which types best treat your symptoms is a handy piece of knowledge to bring to your next dispensary visit

What are Cannabinoids?

One heftty word that belongs in every cannabis user vocabulary is cannabinoid. Cannabinoids (e.g., THC and CBD) are the chemical compounds secreted by cannabis owners that are known to cause relief to an array of symptoms including pain, nausea, and inflammation. They work their magic by imitating compounds our bodies naturally produce, called endocannabinoids, which

activate to maintain internal stability and health.  put a complex system simply, they mediate communication between cells, and when there is  a deficiency or problem with our endocannabinoid

system, unpleasant symptoms and physical complications occur.

Research

Healing through research

Through research, a number of cannabinoids have  been found to work in conjunction with THC to produce the overall effect of symptom relief.


Cannabidiol (CBD), in particular, modulates the effect of THC on the human body. Experimentation has revealed that a cannabis plant which contains far more THC than CBD makes the user feel “high or stoned.” Hemp, which contains the reverse—much more CBD than THC—relieves symptoms somewhat, without the psychoactive effect of cannabis. However, specially bred cannabis that contains roughly equal amounts of THC and CBD offered the most effective treatment for symptoms and pain. This indicates that the ratio of THC to CBD plays a key role in determining the efficacy of the cannabis plant for therapeutic applications.
