Potential Medicinal Properties of Cannabinoids

The cannabis plant offers a wide range of potential medicinal properties due to its cannabinoids. Cannabis does contain more than 113 active Cannabinoids. The cannabis plant is also known as hemp, marijuana or weed. While the two most important factors related to medical marijuana are, the widely known THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (Cannabidiol).

What is the difference between THC and CBD?

THC is for sure the most known cannabinoid. Due to the fact, that THC can have a psychoactive side effect. THC affects our body’s own cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1). Relevant to affect our central nervous system and our brain. Therefore, THC can help for dozens of diseases. But it can make you “high” as well. That happens if the THC level is above 1%.

CBD, on the other hand, is a major phytocannabinoid. Not psychoactive at all. It affects CB1 and CB2 receptors indirectly. Cannabidiol is accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. Furthermore, it is also considered to have a wide scope of potential medical applications. Therefore, clinical reports showing the lack of side effects. Particularly a lack of psychoactivity as long as the THC value of products used is lower than 1%. Hence, there is a non-interference with several psychomotor learning and psychological functions.

For a better understanding, you should read our article about Cannabinoids Receptors first. So you will understand, why most cannabinoids have huge potential medicinal properties. Simply because each cannabinoid got its own influence on our endogenous receptors. By using one or the other cannabinoid, you can affect your mental and physical health in different ways. The best cannabis strains and products do always include multiple cannabinoids. Almost universally applicable, so to speak.

Which are the most important cannabinoids?

There are hundreds of different cannabinoids within the cannabis plant. 95% not even researched yet. While the most important cannabinoids that we know about today, are THC, CBD, CBG, and acid forms like CBDa or THCa.
