THC is formed from THC

THC Isolated from the plant for the first time In 1964, by Israeli chemists and professor Rafael Meshulam And Dr. Yehiel Geni Who worked together with a team of researchers from the Hebrew University and the Weizmann Institute.

How THC was created

THC is the product of a process called de-carboxylation, which is formed from the cannabinoid acid THCA found in cannabis flowers, especially in their tricosomes, before being heated by cooking, a vaporettor, or a joint. The THCA itself is considered To a very healthy ingredient for food.

Only after the THCA is warmed to a temperature greater than 155-165 does the THC become released and the known "hi" effect is released. This is also the reason that cannabis harvested from the plant and swallowed will not have a psychoactive effect. When THC is oxidized (exposed to contact with the air), aged or otherwise damaged, it is converted toCBN, Meaning that as the THC disappears and dissipates, the amounts of CBN increase and accordingly its effect.

The fresh plant element THCA becomes THC after heating
