What is THC?

After a while being working in CBD cases on pets I came back to write more about phytocannabinoids.

Today we will learn about another phytocannabinoid found in cannabis plants. Let's remember what are phytocannabinoids.

Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids that occur in the cannabis plant meanwhile endocannabinoids are produced by mammals, including humans.

There are 2 main phytocannabinoids: CBD and THC.

Today we learn about THC

What is THC?

THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol and it is the psychoactive compound of the cannabis plant. Yes, it is the compound that makes you high when you consume marijuana.

But, THC also has the following properties:

  • It is a strong anti-inflammatory

  • It is a strong analgesic

  • It is antiemetic

  • It is anti-neoplastic

  • It is a neural modulatory

  • It is antioxidant

  • It is a bronchodilatory

  • It is a muscle relaxant

  • It is Anti-pruritic

  • It is good against the neurogenic pain

  • It is good for cancer treatment

  • It is good for cachexia ( extreme weight loss and muscle wasting, and can include loss of body fat.)

  • It is good for the fatigue

  • It is good for glaucoma

As you see THC has not only bad things, but THC has much more benefits than side effects. This compound can be used in humans for recreational and medicinal cannabis in pets when we use cannabis products for medical purposes.

if you want t use THC for medical purposes either for human or pet, please always consult your primary doctor or veterinary, there is also a lot of cases of THC intoxication in pets if THC is not monitored and dosed properly.

in case of THC intoxication in pets please run to the closest emergency pet hospital
