What is THC?

THC, or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, is the main psychoactive component in cannabis. When a person ingests or inhales cannabis containing THC, it binds to cannabinoid receptors in the brain and body, which are part of the endocannabinoid system. This can result in a variety of effects, including feelings of euphoria, altered perception of time and space, increased appetite, and reduced pain and inflammation. THC also has the potential to cause negative side effects, such as anxiety, paranoia, and impaired coordination, especially when consumed in high doses.

THC works by binding to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain and body, which are part of the endocannabinoid system. This system plays a role in regulating a variety of functions, including pain and anxiety. When THC binds to these receptors, it can reduce the perception of pain by inhibiting the transmission of pain signals in the brain. THC can also help to reduce anxiety by activating the endocannabinoid system, which can have a calming effect on the body and mind. However, it's important to note that THC can also have negative side effects, such as anxiety and paranoia, especially when consumed in high doses or by individuals who are sensitive to its effect.

 

If you are new to using THC, it's important to start with a low dose and gradually increase it over time as needed. Here are some tips for easing into THC use:

  1. Start with a low THC concentration: Choose products with low THC concentration (e.g. 5-10mg per serving for edibles, 5-10% THC for flower). This will help you avoid overconsumption and reduce the risk of negative side effects.
  2. Choose a method of consumption that allows for better dosage control: Smoking or vaping can be difficult to dose accurately, so consider alternative methods like edibles or tinctures, which can be more precisely dosed.
  3. Wait before re-dosing: It can take up to 2 hours to feel the full effects of an edible, so be patient and wait before consuming more. This will help you avoid overconsumption.
  4. Start in a comfortable environment: Begin with a small dose in a safe and comfortable environment where you feel relaxed and calm.


Remember that everyone's tolerance and reaction to THC is different, so it's important to go slow and find the right dose for your individual needs. We recommend to consult with a healthcare professional before using THC or any other cannabis product.
