What are the active ingredients in cannabis?
Cannabinoids are the main active ingredients in cannabis. There are more than 100, and the most researched ones are THC and CBD.
THC interacts with cannabinoid receptors to induce analgesia, antispasmodic activity, reduction of chemotherapy induced nausea and vomiting, appetite stimulation, and decreased intestinal motility. Varieties with high concentrations of THC can cause anxiety, disorientation, and intoxication in some patients. It is responsible for many of the pharmacological effects of cannabis, including the psychoactive effect.
CBD has a low affinity for cannabinoid receptors. It has anti-inflammatory, analgesic, antiemetic, antipsychotic, anxiolytic, and anti-seizure effects. CBD lacks the psychotropic effect of THC.
