Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9 THC)

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC) is the primary psychoactive compound found in cannabis, responsible for the intoxicating effects commonly associated with marijuana use. It is one of over 100 cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant, and it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system to produce its effects.

When consumed, Delta-9-THC binds to cannabinoid receptors in the brain and central nervous system, particularly to CB1 receptors, which are concentrated in areas of the brain associated with pleasure, memory, coordination, and time perception.

In addition to its psychoactive effects, Delta-9-THC is also believed to have potential therapeutic benefits, including pain relief, anti-nausea properties, appetite stimulation, and anti-inflammatory effects.
