THC is the most important active substance in hashish and weed. These active substances are also called cannabinoids. In addition to THC, there are more than 100 other cannabinoids in hashish and weed. CBD and CBN are the most common other active substances in the cannabis plant.
THC means delta-9-TetraHydroCannabinol. THC is also the primary psychotropic substance in cannabis.
What is the effect of THC?
In principle, THC ensures that you get high. Think of laughter, relaxation, joy, a delayed perception of time and an increased heart rate. Everything you experience during a trip is due to the THC. So not only the positive effects but also the adverse effects.
What contains THC?
Initially, hash contains more THC than weed. This is because hash is a concentrated product. THC is found in both hashish and weed. So you can take THC in many ways, with one method being more dangerous than the other. Whichever way you ingest THC, the process always begins with decarboxylation. This is heating a cannabis product so that the active substances are activated.
The most common way to take in THC, and get high, is by smoking a joint. The cannabis-infused cigarette is made with rolling paper and a cannabis product. This cannabis product contains THC, which ensures you get high when you smoke the joint. When you light a joint, the cannabis heats up, which activates the active substances.
In addition to smoking weed or hashish, you can also vape it. This is the vaporization of cannabis products. No actual combustion takes place, unlike when you smoke a joint. Instead, vaporizing weed is enough to activate the substance. So vaping is smoking weed without taking in the substances released during combustion. Vaping is, therefore, a less harmful alternative to smoking weed. Of course, this is not to say that vaping is healthy for you.
