What is THC and what does it do?

To be blunt, pardon the pun, THC is the element that gets your high if you use Cannabis. You normally see articles like this positioned as THC versus CBD, the more medicinal side, but for the purpose of the post, we are just looking at THC.

A high THC strain is regarded somewhere between 15% to 20% +.

Discount Cannabis Seed’s have a specified high THC range which you can check out here > https://www.discountcannabisseeds.co.uk/en/cannabis-seeds/high-thc-cannabis-seeds .

As is stated, THC information is strictly guidance for growers who are legally permitted to germinate cannabis seeds.

So, back to the Science!

Tetrahydrocannabinol is one of at least 113 cannabinoids identified in cannabis. THC is the principal psychoactive constituent of cannabis. With chemical name-trans-Δ⁹-tetrahydrocannabinol, the term THC also refers to cannabinoid isomers.

It acts much like the cannabinoid chemicals made naturally by the body, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).

Cannabinoid Receptors - Discount Cannabis Seeds

Cannabinoid receptors are concentrated in certain areas of the brain associated with thinking, memory, pleasure, coordination and time perception. THC attaches to these receptors and activates them and affects a person's memory, pleasure, movements, thinking, concentration, coordination, and sensory plus time perception.

THC stimulates cells in the brain to release dopamine, creating euphoria, according to NIDA. It also interferes with how information is processed in the hippocampus, which is part of the brain responsible for forming new memories.

On the flip side of this you have CBD which has the majority of medical benefits, and it is this which we will look at on an incoming blog post.
