ACTIVE Ingredients IN CANNABIS
Cannabis can be both psychotropic and non-psychoactive. Each part of the plant plays an important role in determining what the ultimate effect is.
Containing 2 main active ingredients, most notably cannabinoids and terpenes, the relationship between these two properties is what differentiates one experience from the other.
Cannabinoids are responsible for many of the psychotropic effects of cannabis, although not all cannabinoids are psychotropic. The most recognized cannabinoids are THC—a psychoactive ingredient and CBD—a non-psychoactive ingredient, known to have the most homeopathic properties. Understanding the effects of specific cannabinoids will help you in choosing products that will result in the best experience. New research is uncovering the importance of other minor cannabinoids as well.
Terpenes—aroma and taste molecules—are instrumental to the experience and enjoyment of cannabis. The relationship between terpenes and cannabinoids is what differentiates one strain from another.
