Biochemically, cannabis consists of several components. Here I would like to tell you about a few properties and tell you something about the composition. All of the effects and effects produced by terpenes are fascinating in their own right. The interaction of these is called the entourage effect. This describes the phenomenon that the active ingredients in combination have a greater effect than each active ingredient alone.
Up to 35% of the weight of the flowers
A class of different chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant. Cannabinoids act on cannabis receptors (CB1 and CB2) in the body, altering the release of neurotransmitters and influencing body functions.
THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid and works in conjunction with CBD and other cannabinoids. Together, these are known to achieve therapeutic effects. (Entourage effect)
THC-A is the (acid form in the plant) precursor to THC which is virtually non-psychoactive and can have similar therapeutic effects. THC-A is converted into THC by heat (decarboxylation). This also applies to CBD-A, CBG-A and all other cannabinoids that are original plant acids and precursors.
CBD a therapeutically active compound found in the cannabis plant, with a modeled effect on the psychotropic and therapeutic potential of other cannabinoids such as THC
Up to 8% of the weight of the flowers
A type of hydrocarbon compound produced by the plant that emits strong odors to protect the plant from pathogens herbivores. Terpenes can model the psychotropic and therapeutic effects of cannabinoids and other compounds.
Often referred to as “fast” terpenes due to their volatility. These are more floral, have spicy or fruity aromas. Examples include myrcene, linalool and limonene.
Also called “slow” terpenes because they can survive dry and warm conditions for long periods of time. The pepper, dry grass and wood aromas are responsible. Examples are caryophyllene and humulene.
Up to 10% of the weight of the flowers
Chemical compound produced by the plant that contributes to the color and flavors of a variety. Flavonoids can remodel the effects of cannabinoids.
The rest of the flower consists of waxes, fats, plant fibers and chlorophyll.
