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, the original list of cannabinoids is very long and for the vast majority we know almost nothing yet - we have nevertheless compiled a short list that surveys a small portion 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 cultivars will often be dominant indica with a more "sticky" than "elevated" effect. Medically, cannabidiol has quite a few virtues in the field, including anxiety reduction, analgesics, anti-nausea and vomiting, anti-inflammatory properties, excellent sleep medication, and studies that show a clear link between the CBD and stopping cancerous growths in the body.

(CBG (cannabiagerol - The CBG can also be called "the father of all cannabinoids" since almost all the cannabinoids in the plant actually evolved from its chemical structure. CBG has a tendency to easily disintegrate into another cannabinoid and is therefore usually found in small amounts in cannabis. Medically, CBG is very similar to the CBD because it has excellent anti-inflammatory properties and is also associated with a region of the brain that helps release muscles and moderates anxiety. As with many other cannabinoids, CBG also has a lot of information left in the fog, but experts estimate it works in co-operation with other cannabinoids in the plant.

(CBN (cannabinol Cannabinol (CBN) is another of the less known cannabinoids. Cannabinol is a direct result of the deterioration of THC in cannabis and is therefore found in very small amounts in fresh plant. However, as cannabis stores more time, more CBN is present when the ganja exposure during storage to oxygen and light will cause a significant increase in CBN. Unlike the vast majority of cannabinoids that do not cause psychoactive effects, CBN actually has an effect on our stenosis, but is relatively minor compared to THC (CBN in its natural form contains a quantity of 10% of THC). The effects of CBN are considered to be undesirable effects among cannabis consumers because they are believed to be responsible for the "confusion" and "discomfort" feelings sometimes associated with cannabis consumption. In the process of cannabis production, a percentage of the THC deteriorates into CBN, and cannabis can therefore be found in larger amounts of CBN.

(THCV) tetrahudrocannabivarin - a cannabinoid that is very similar in structure to THC. It is particularly common in cannabis strains from the African and Asian region. THCV is estimated to have an effect on the odor intensity produced by the plant and strong-smelling cannabis probably indicates a high amount of THCV. In terms of its effect on the brain - in small quantities it blocks the receptor CB1 - the same receptor in the brain that "works" with the THC and thus actually moderates some of the effects of THC. Conversely, in large quantities it is partly responsible for the intensity of the thrombosis And for his time.

(CBC) cannabichromene - In the past it was thought to be found in very small quantities in the plant, but recent studies suggest that some of the cannabinoids reported as CBD are actually CBCs. CBC does not have psychoactive effects in its original form, but like the CBD, when combined with THC, it affects the strength of the cyst in one way or another.
(CBL) cannabiclol - Like the CBN, cannabisol (CBC) is also a product of another cannabinoid degeneration - this time the CBC. When the cannabis is exposed, the CBC becomes a CBC. There are currently no reports of cannabiolol effects on humans.
