5 powerful strains of cannabis

The main active substances in marijuana are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). These chemical compounds are formed in the buds and leaves of cannabis. Their joint action changes the psycho-emotional state of a person, causing drug intoxication.

CBD affects a person’s emotional state by providing a sedative, relaxing effect. The amount of CBD in marijuana is important for medicinal uses when the potency fades into the background and sedation becomes the main concern. THC, on the other hand, affects the mental state, and therefore the strength of the effect of cannabis directly depends on its percentage in the plant. Strains with a THC content of more than 18% are considered to be strong varieties.

THC formation begins with the emergence of a sprout. It is exposed to sunlight, which triggers the process of photosynthesis. Cannabis begins to release carbon dioxide and, at the moment of attaching a hydrogen molecule to it, carboxylic acid (THCA) is formed, which serves as the basis for the formation of THC. Its peak occurs at the end of the plant’s flowering cycle. The transition process from THCA to THC occurs already when the cannabis is dried. This is why well-dried shoots contain significantly higher amounts of THC and are endowed with better qualities. Genetically arranged so that the largest amount of THC is contained in female non-pollinated inflorescences. Pollination destroys THC molecules, converting them into the less potent CBN cannabinoid.
