25 Oct CANNABIS AND RELATED SUBSTANCES
Between 60 and 100 chemicals called cannabinoids and some 300 non-cannabinoid chemicals are produced by the cannabis plant. Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are two of the many cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant, in varying concentrations. THC is psychoactive in nature and is the cannabinoid most sought after by recreational users for the “euphoric” high. CBD, on the other hand, is not psychoactive in nature.
