At the end of last year we were informed that California's largest medical organization supports the cessation of incriminating cannabis consumersRemoving marijuana from the list of forbidden drugs. The doctors who signed this petition did not act in an interest to win over all the residents of California, nor did they present the proposal as a solution to the country's poor economic situation - these doctors simply want to explore this wonderful plant called "Cannabis" And it turns out that even in a country that is considered to be the most liberal in the field, the administration is still making it difficult for the medical establishment to carry out regular studies and examinations.
These doctors know That we have not yet touched the tip of the iceberg when it comes to extracting the capabilities of medical marijuana And they are hungry to explore the subject again - but as we have already said, they encounter the difficulties and difficulties of the federal government in the United States.
Wait, what else is there to investigate? Is there anything that you do not yet know about cannabis?
Well, it turns out that there are many, many, many more - Besides the THC cannabinoid, it is with the "active ingredient" in cannabis most of us know, there are dozens more cannabinoids in the plant when each of them performs another action on the body. Each cannabinoid has its own properties and the specific areas it affects. Experts believe that in the not-too-distant future, when we can better decipher the same properties and effects individually for each cannabinoids, we can maximize the plant's properties and create special strains for specific diseases. As we have already mentioned in the long list of original cannabinoids and most of them we know almost nothing - yet we have compiled a short list of some of the cannabinoids for which there is already some information:
(THC) tetrahydrocannabinol - In 1964 Prof. Raphael Meshulam became the first scientist in the world to isolate the THC from the plant. This follows a long study at the laboratories of the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot. THC is considered the most popular cannabinoids. THC has a psychoactive effect on the brain and is the main cause of the "high" feeling that comes after consuming cannabis. When we smoke marijuana, the smoke (and the THC) reaches the bloodstream and from there to the brain (in the food it reaches through the stomach to the bloodstream and then continues to the brain). Within the brain we have receptors to which the THC fits in an amazing way like a glove next to it and so it starts to affect us. Small amounts of THC help with pain relief, nausea, increased appetite, and more ... Larger amounts of THC will already promote the sense of the spoken stroller.

(CBD) cannabidiol After THC, CBD was considered the most dominant cannabinoids in cannabis with many medical benefits. It is certainly possible to see a trend in recent years of cannabis growers in the world that place more emphasis on the development of cultivars rich in CBD. Although cannabidiol (CBD) has no psychoactive effects in itself, but when combined with THC, it certainly has an effect on our stools. CBD-rich strains will most often be a dominant indicator with a more “sticky” effect than “uplifting”. Medicinally, cannabidiol has quite a few virtues in the field, among other things, such as reducing anxiety, analgesia, nausea and vomiting, it has anti-inflammatory properties, it is also excellent as a remedy for good sleep and studies have also shown a clear link between CBD and stopping cancerous tumors in the body.

(CBG (cannabiagerol - The CBG can also be called the "father of all cannabinoids" since almost all cannabinoids in the plant have actually evolved from its chemical structure. CBG has a tendency to break apart easily and, as stated, to become a different cannabinoid, so it is usually found in small quantities in cannabis. Medically, CBG is very reminiscent of CBD in that it has excellent anti-inflammatory properties and in addition, it has been linked to a brain area that helps release muscle and reduce anxiety symptoms. As with many other cannabinoids, the CBG also has a lot of information left in the mist, but experts believe it works in exemplary collaboration with the other cannabinoids in the plant.

(CBN (cannabinol Cannabinol (CBN) is another of the less known cannabinoids. Cannabinol is a direct result of THC degradation in cannabis and is therefore found in very small amounts in fresh plant but the longer cannabis stores, the more CBN it contains when exposure of the ganja during oxygen storage and light will cause a significant increase in CBN. In contrast to the vast majority of cannabinoids that do not cause psychoactive effects, CBN does have an effect on our sutol, but it is relatively minor compared to THC (CBN in its natural form contains as much as 10% of psychoactivity found in THC). CBN effects are considered to be undesirable among cannabis consumers as they are thought to be responsible for the feelings of "confusion" and "discomfort" that sometimes result from cannabis consumption. In the process of making hash a certain percentage of the THC degrades to CBN and therefore larger quantities of CBN can be found in the hash.

(THCV) tetrahudrocannabivarin - Cannabinoid which is very similar in its structure to THC. It is especially common in cannabis strains from the African and Asian region. It is estimated that THCV has an effect on the odor intensity that the plant produces and that a strong scent cannabis probably indicates a high amount of THCV. In terms of its effect on the brain - in small quantities it blocks the CB1 receptor - the same receptor in the brain that "works" with the THC as well, thus effectively mitigating some of the effects of the THC, while in large quantities it is responsible (partly of course) for the intensity of the sutole. And for his time.

(CBC) cannabichromene - In the past, they were thought to be in very small amounts in the plant but recent studies have suggested that some cannabinoids reported as CBD are actually CBC. CBC does not have psychoactive effects in its original form but like the CBD when it comes in combination with THC it has some or other effect on the potency of Sutol.
(CBL) cannabiclol - Like the CBN, cannabis is also a product of another cannabinoid deterioration - this time it is the CBC. When cannabis is exposed to a button and light, CBC in the plant becomes CBC. There are currently no reports of the effects of cannabis in humans.
