THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana’s psychological effects. It acts much like the cannabinoid chemicals made naturally by the body. THC is one of many compounds found in the resin secreted by glands of the marijuana plant. More of these glands are found around the reproductive organs of the plant than on any other area of the plant. Other compounds unique to marijuana, called cannabinoids, are present in this resin.
CBD, or cannabidiol, is the cannabinoid second only to THC when it comes to average volume. Recently, research has shown CBD to have analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-anxiety properties without the psychoactive effects (the “high” or “stoned” feeling) that THC provides. While high THC strains often tout levels of over 20%, generally, CBD levels of over 4% are considered to be high.
Trichomes are small outgrowths that look like fine hairs or scales on many plants, algae, and lichen, and they serve several biological functions. In cannabis, trichomes are sometimes called “kief” or frosting, and they are the sticky, aromatic resin glands that stay on your fingers after you handle cannabis flowers.
Terpenes are essential oils that enhance your high and may hold numerous medical benefits. Terpenes (and terpenoids) are aromatic organic compounds found in many plants and even some insects. Cannabis (marijuana) has naturally high levels of terpenes.
