THC is one of the main compounds found in the cannabis plant. It contains psychoactive ingredients that give its recreational users a high. Surprisingly, THC is almost identical to the cannabinoid produced naturally by our bodies.

Our brain has cannabinoid receptors that are associated with the following:

  • Thinking abilities
  • Memory retention
  • Pleasure
  • Co-ordination
  • Time perception

Once you ingest THC, it releases its ingredients, which get attached to your body’s cannabinoid receptors. As a result, it alters the above-stated actions. THC is just one of the many cannabis components, and nearly all of them are located around the plant’s flowering part.

Facts about THC


Existing Knowledge on THC

  1. A 2019 study by UNM researchers Stith and Vigil found that THC provided therapeutic benefits such as relief from agitation and depression. The team used Releafapp, an app that would let marijuana users record changes in symptoms.
  2. In 2014, Webb and Webb conducted a study whereby they clinically analyzed patients from Hawaiian hospitals. The research aimed to determine the benefits of marijuana and its components. They found that patients were able to treat their chronic pain using medical marijuana.
  3. In 2020, Li and his colleagues researched the effect of medical marijuana’s components on people’s behavior patterns and mood. The findings showed that THC would reduce depression and improve people’s mood and behavior.
  4. In 2018, Brockelman and his team researched the effect of cannabis on insomnia. They found that THC failed to produce a meaningful impact on insomnia. However, they discovered that CBD, another major cannabis component was useful in treating insomnia.
  5. Koppel and his colleagues conducted a literature review on cannabis from the year 1948 to 2013. Among the findings was that marijuana was useful in treating multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, and movement disorders.

Can You Overdose from Marijuana?

Edible marijuana is now a matter of great concern in America. This is because of the high number of overdose cases, especially among the youth. Edibles such as cookies are ingested in large quantities hence the high chances of overdose.

The way you ingest marijuana determines how fast you will get high. Edibles have a high potency, which usually lasts longer in your bloodstream. On the other hand, inhaling marijuana will produce a high of about 45 minutes.

As a result, laws on marijuana allow for a limit of 3.5 ounces for edible marijuana.

THC Concentration in Cannabis

The cannabis plant has two main strains, namely Indica and Sativa. Cannabis Sativa L determines THC’s concentration. You should note that THC usually degrades into cannabinol when exposed to air. If this happens, the THC you ingest will have a low concentration. Below is a breakdown of THC doses that you may find in the various Cannabis strains:

  1. Hemp is among the Cannabis varieties with a THC concentration of 0.3% or less. It’s useful in the manufacturing sector and has been used to produce bioplastics and other textiles.
  2. Marijuana is a popular term used to describe cannabis products with high concentrations of THC.
  3. Hashish has about 15% THC, whereas hashish oil has 20%. This variety has a higher potency than marijuana.
