We get that cannabis choices can get confusing. Between the choices of various cannabinoids to the role terpenes play in functional benefits and efficacy, there is a lot to learn. The good news is, you don’t need to be an expert, because our Budtenders are. So, stop on into our stores and have us help you make the perfect choice. But in the meantime, here is a little more information on the science behind the satisfaction.

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC)

Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta-9-THC) this molecule is the primary psychoactive ingredient in cannabis; this is a decarboxylated (removed acid chain) version of the natural thc-A molecule produced by the cannabis plant.


ThcA cannabis doesn’t usually produce THC or CBD. The plant produces all cannabinoids in an acid form. THCA is the non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in cannabis. This molecule converts to THC when it’s dried and heated, this is why you need to heat your substrate before making edibles.

Cbd: cannabidiol

A nonpsychoactive component derived from the cannabis plant. This molecule is not naturally occurring, it is a decarboxylated version of CBD-A. This molecule has been studied as a treatment for epilepsy to dietary supplements.

Cbd-a Cannabidiolic acid

This is the naturally occurring and most abundant non psychotropic cannabinoid produced by the cannabis plant. This molecule is often decarboxylated for the defaulted efficacy.

Cbg- Cannabigerol

CBG is one of the most common minor cannabinoids found in most Cannabis strains. CBG has has very low to little psychotropic effects when compared to THC, but it has slight affinity for Cb1 receptors(will affect you similarly to Cbd).

Cbn – Cannabinol is a cannabinoid from the Cannabis plant that is a metabolite of thc, with potential immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory activities. Cannabinol binds to the cannabinoid receptor CB2, which is mainly expressed on a variety of immune cells, such as T-cells and B-cells. Cannabinol has minimal affinity for CB1 and has a weak effect on the bodies nervous system.

Cbc- cannabichromeme

A non-psychotropic cannabinoid that possesses anti-inflammatory properties and binds to the body’s TRPA1 receptor. Another common minor molecule. CBC inhibits endocannabinoid inactivation and activates the trpa1 receptor


Cannabidivarin is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in Cannabis. It is a homolog of cannabidiol, with the side-chain shortened by two methylene bridges. . It is one of over 100 cannabinoids identified from the Cannabis plant that can modulate the physiological activity of cannabis, or marijuana.


Tetrahydrocannabivarin is a homologue of tetrahydrocannabinol having a propyl side chain instead of a pentyl group on the molecule, which makes it produce very different effects from THC. The parent molecule for THCV in its acidic form tetrahydrocannabivarinic acid (THCVA).
