All | # A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
There are currently 12 budgies in this directory
CBC
Cannabichromene, or CBC, is one of the 6 main cannabinoids that is most prominent in medical research. It is a powerful, non-psychoactive cannabinoid. It does not elicit a “high.”It has shown benefits as a synergist, which means it works well with other cannabinoids, otherwise known as the entourage effect. CBC has shown to block pain and inflammation associated with osteoarthritis (damage to the joints in the hands, knees, hips and spine), which is the most common arthritis affecting millions of people throughout the world. Combined with THC and/or CBD, CBC appears to relieve depression and pain and inflammation, as well as acne and Alzheimer's disease.
CBD
Cannabidiol, or CBD, has become more widely known as the amount of studies and testing by scientists from around the world has increased. For decades it has been known to possess incredible healing and therapeutic benefits. CBD is the second most abundant compound found in hemp plants. Scientists have established CBD as a safe non-addictive compound that does not cause euphoric or intoxicating effects in humans or animals. CBD has also been found to have extraordinary benefits for restorative health. CBD is an anti-inflammatory agent and works to prevent or reduce inflammation in both the brain and body, as well as temporarily alleviate pain. As an anti-inflammatory agent, CBD has a significant effect on the body’s ability to maintain homeostasis when faced with everyday stressors. This is why CBD has been found to offer a very wide array of potential benefits for numerous ailments. CBD is now used worldwide by those seeking an all natural non-psychoactive alternative solution to pharmaceutical medications in order to avoid adverse side effects or reactions. CBD goes way beyond symptom relief to help the body heal itself; it interacts naturally with the body's Endocannabinoid system to produce healing effects at a molecular level.
CBG
Cannabigerol, or CBG, is most often referred to as the mother of all cannabinoids. It has been estimated as such due to the fact that other cannabinoids derive from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which is the acidic form of CBG. CBG is found in very small quantities than other phytocannabinoids. This means that CBG products are rare and can be quite expensive. CBG has been found to bind to both CB1 and CB2 receptors in the Endocannabinoid System (ECS). It shows promise in enhancing pleasure and motivation, regulating appetite and sleep, as well as alleviating pain.CBG does not have any psychotropic effects, so it does not give you a “high.”
CBN
Cannabinol, or CBN, is a minor cannabinoid that is non-intoxicating and is created when THC ages. Due to this, it is most often found in high amounts in older cannabis. The potential benefits of CBN and the effects on the body are currently being researched more and more. Studies show evidence that CBN may be a potent antibacterial agent, an appetite stimulator and an anti-inflammatory agent. It shows potential as a synergist and seems to increase euphoric effects of THC and can induce sleepiness.
Delta 10 THC
Delta 10 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is known as an “elusive” cannabinoid as it is most often confused for Cannabichromene (CBC). Delta 10 is not a naturally occurring cannabinoid and is created through a process that necessitates a type of catalyst to create it such as a food grade radical initiator to stabilize the reactivity of the radicals to provide higher yields of Delta 10 THC. D10’s isolated crystals develop in smaller concentrations than most other cannabinoids. Delta 10 THC is created through an extraction and distillation process. D10 has proven to deliver benefits and effects to serve both medicinal and recreational consumers. D10 is most often sold in the form of oils,tinctures, edibles, vape cartridges, disposable vape pens and even flower. The compound Δ10-THC is legally derived from hemp and offers a “high” similar to Delta 9 THC.
Delta 8 THC
Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is a cannabinoid that occurs in much smaller concentrations than most other cannabinoids. Delta 8 is considered to be an isomer that forms as Delta-9 THC ages and oxidizes. This process increases the stability of the Delta 8 molecular structure so that it does not degrade as easily and lasts much longer over time. It should be noted that Delta-8 THC and Delta 9-THC contain similarities in their molecular structure. Both contain double bonds, but D8 contains the bond on the 8th carbon chain and not on the 9th. For that reason, D8 and D9 THC react similarly within the Endocannabinoid receptors in the body as a result of their similar presentation of structure and properties. The compound Delta 8-THC is now being legally derived from hemp and offers a euphoric “high” similar to Delta 9 THC.
Delta 9 THC
Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) works by attaching to Endocannabinoid system receptors throughout the brain and the Nervous System. Effects may last for a few hours, but is dependent on frequency of use, dosage, body weight and/or cardiac activity level. Delta 9 is known to be lipophilic, which means that it can readily attach to fat. As D9 THC attaches to fat cells it has the ability to move from the fat cells into the bloodstream and may remain in the body for longer periods of time. D9 can be detected in the body for up to 20 hours after it has been ingested. The compound Δ9-THC is now being legally derived from hemp and offers a euphoric “high.”
HHC
Hexahydrocannabinal, or HHC, is only found in trace concentrations and has not been isolated in enough quantities for consumption until now. With HHC, all the double-bonds have broken and been replaced with hydrogen. This process is referred to as hydrogenation. The difference between HHC and THC is quite subtle, but it still changes the structure of the molecule, as well as how it binds to the Endocannabinoid receptors and pain receptors in the human body. HHC offers similar effects and potency as THC. It has been said that HHC is more potent than Delta 8-THC, but slightly less potent than Delta 9-THC.
Terpenes
Terpenes are aromatic compounds that supply aromas and flavors in cannabis, all other plants and a variety of organisms. Not only are terpenes major contributors to the aroma and flavors experienced when consuming cannabis, but they also influence the effect by interacting with cannabinoids. Terpenes form inside of cannabis trichomes. Their development is directly affected by the spectrum and intensity of light exposure. Each strain of cannabis has its own unique aroma due to its specific terpene content. Terpenes can deliver to your palate the flavors we know as citrus, diesel, hashish, woody, pine, skunky, coffee, spicy, herbal or tropical-like flavors. In addition to providing flavors and aromas, terpenes act as a type of support to other cannabis molecules to produce a full “entourage effect” one might feel when cannabis is introduced to their system. Depending on the exact combination of terpenes and cannabinoids, there can be one of two results in effects. One would be an exaggeration of effects or the second would be a suppression of effects. This is highly dependent upon the flower strain, as well as the individual taking it. With more research being conducted, evidence shows that terpenes can play a substantial role in mitigating intoxicating effects of THC and also forms a collaboration with cannabinoids, which results in an increase in the therapeutic value. It is important to remember that aroma and flavor are subjective in nature. What appeals to some may not be appealing to others. Terpenes are basically the primary component of essential oils and are responsible for the regeneration, oxygenation and immunity defense of the plant. Further research is being conducted to understand the effects of cannabis terpenes in comparison to the terpenes found in other plants. Terpenes do not have intoxicating effects on their own.
THC-O
Tetrahydrocannabinol acetate, or THC-O, is most commonly referred to as THC-O, but is also referred to as THC- O-Acetate or ATHC. It is important to not confuse ATHC with THCa. THCa is a tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, which is a parent molecule to THC. The major difference between the ATHC and THCa is that the “A” in ATHC is for acetate and the “a'' in THCa is for acid. THCa naturally occurs in raw cannabis and converts to THC through a process known as decarboxylation. THC-O is not a naturally occurring cannabinoid and can only be made in a laboratory setting. THC-O molecules are much more potent than smoked, vaped, dabbed or orally consumed THC. So despite how the body filters the molecules, the portion that is able to travel beyond the brain barrier will provide a very strong experience. It is recommended that users start with a very small dose and increase dosages slowly to test their comfort levels. The experience that users have often reported after consuming THC-O is akin to a hallucinogenic experience induced by psilocybin.
THCP
Tetrahydrocannabiphorol, or THCP, is one of the hundreds of compounds that the cannabis plant produces in their resin filled trichomes. THCP is found in tiny quantities More studies are being conducted on this newly found cannabinoid THCP. The effects are found to be somewhat identical to Delta 9-THC, but with much more added potency. Researchers believe that THCP is as much as 30 times more potent than THC. THCP paired with other cannabinoids and terpenes has the potential to produce a substantial amount of pain relief or an effective sleep aid. Effects will vary throughout energizing, soothing or sedating. If effects are similar then it must be recognized that commonly known THC side-effects may occur as well. Use of THCP requires careful doses and should be monitored carefully to maximize benefits and diminish side-effects.
THCV
Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THCV, is a compound found in minimal amounts within cannabis sativa strains. It offers an array of effects and benefits that are unique from other cannabinoids such as THC or CBD. In small to medium doses, THCV does not deliver identical psychoactive properties that THC imparts. With higher doses, THCV does prove to offer its own unique psychoactive characteristics. It is said to produce a clear euphoric state of mind. THCV has the ability to bind to both CB1 and CB2 receptors of the body’s Endocannabinoid system (ECS). Due to the fact that THCV is found in very low quantities in sativa strains, it is mainly available through extraction in the form of distillate.
