Along with CBD, THC is the most known cannabinoid found in the Cannabis Sativa plant, and we’ve discussed some of its properties here. This time however, we’ll take a closer look at this compound and we’ll analyze the good and the bad effects of THC, based on the existing studies.


Although until a few years ago THC was considered the most psychoactive compound in the cannabis plant, this substance is actually believed to result from another compound, called CBGA (cannabigerolic acid), which is naturally produced by Cannabis Sativa. A portion of CBGA is converted to THCA, which is an acid substance, and this compound is the one that generates THC when aged or exposed to UV light or heat.


Depending on the method used for processing the plant, up to 70% of the THCA can be converted to THC, so when labs analyze the content of THC in a product, they typically measure THCA as well. Cannabis buds and flowers contain 8%-20% THCA, most strains being bread to contain a higher THC content.


However, this doesn’t apply to hemp products like our CBD oil because industrial hemp is not cultivated to produce buds, and therefore lacks the primary component that forms THC in the plant. 


It is therefore essential to point out that hemp products do NOT contain more than trace levels of THC, and are therefore not psychoactive. This means that CBD oil does not induce a euphoric sensation and doesn’t make one high, so it can be safely used as dietary supplement.


Now let’s move on to discussing the other properties and effects of THC, as the psychoactive action is widely known already.


Positive effects of THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol)


THC interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the human body; the former is located in the nervous system, and this is why THC induces euphoric feelings, but the latter is part of the immune system. This seems to play an important role in the overall health effects of THC, studies suggesting that the activation of the CB2 receptor may help in reducing stress levels, improving the immune function and minimizing the risk of inflammation.


Moreover, it seems that the activation of the CB1 receptor could help in regulating appetite and reducing the intake of fats, thus helping in weight management. Very low doses of THC exert cardioprotective effects and can be useful in preventing heart attacks, studies suggest.


THC can cause anxiety in some people and even paranoia, but it also seems to have pain-relieving effects and to act like a natural neuro-protective agent. One study found this compound to be helpful in the treatment of Chron’s Disease, and another pilot clinical study showed that THC might exert an anti-proliferative action on tumor cells.


While it’s obvious that in an unsupervised environment it’s extremely hard to separate the positive effects of this compound from its psychoactive action, it wouldn’t be fair to say that THC is completely harmful for the human body.
