Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, is the compound in cannabis that gives users the feeling of being high (psychoactive effect). This cannabinoid has the same structure and molecular mass as cannabidiol (CBD), which inhibits the effect of THC. The FDA has approved a synthetic form of THC known as dronabinol as an appetite stimulant for patients with significant weight loss due to AIDS and as an anti-vomiting agent for those undergoing chemotherapy. Aside from these indications, THC also boasts a wide array of health benefits that are essential for almost every system in the body.
The body has cannabinoid receptors located in the brain and central nervous system. By binding to these receptors, THC exerts its effect. Depending on the method of consumption (vaping, syrups, edibles, oils, or lotions), the psychoactive effect of THC may vary from person to person.
