SATIVA VS INDICA
There are two main types of cannabis: sativa and indica. They have distinctive differences in their effects.
MAIN CONSTITUENTS OF CANNABIS
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), CBD (Cannabidiol), and the Cannabinoid Family.
THC is the main psychoactive compound found in cannabis. Almost all cannabis is dominated by this compound. THC has mild to moderate analgesic effects. Other effects include relaxation, alteration of visual, auditory, and olfactory senses, fatigue, and appetite stimulation.
CBD is usually the second most common compound found in cannabis. This compound was discovered more recently than THC and shows great therapeutic promise. It has been shown to relieve convulsion, inflammation, anxiety, and nausea, as well as inhibit cancer cell growth.
There are at least 85 other types of cannabinoids. They each have a variety of effects that should be studied as they possibly offer different therapeutic effects. The illegality of the plant has made medical research very difficult for scientists and doctors, and the majority of studies that have been performed only test THC and CBD.
