Cannabinoid Profile: THC
[caption id="attachment_2171" align="aligncenter" width="450"] Crystal-like trichomes cover the surface of cannabis flowers.[/caption] Unlike the second-most abundant cannabinoid in cannabis, cannabidiol, or CBD, THC does not hold the same benevolent reputation in much of the public mind for medical benefit potential. In fact, for many, THC is perhaps most associated strictly with its psychoactive effects, producing the high so often associated with the recreational use of cannabis. Nevertheless, the international scientific community is in fact carrying out research into the potential therapeutic effects of THC. Listed below are links to ongoing, peer-reviewed scientific research into THC.
