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
- 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.

What Happens When THC Gets Into Your Body?
You will likely experience the following once THC enters your bloodstream:
- Get “high” or experience intense euphoria
- Your brain may produce dopamine
- You might experience hallucinations
- Your anxiety levels might rise or drop
- You might experience the ‘marijuana shakes’
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:
- 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.
- Marijuana is a popular term used to describe cannabis products with high concentrations of THC.
- Hashish has about 15% THC, whereas hashish oil has 20%. This variety has a higher potency than marijuana.

High THC-based Components

- High in CBD while low in THC.
- Low in CBD but high in THC.
- Have equal concentrations of both.
These state-licensed dispensaries are easily accessible. However, you must meet the following requirements:
- It would be best if you met a state-licensed medical marijuana doctor who can diagnose you for one or more of the qualifying conditions.
- The doctor will then provide a recommendation for medical marijuana.
- You can then get your medical marijuana card by applying for registration. Note that each state has different laws and requirements.
