THC: The Complete Science Behind Tetrahydrocannabinol

Delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol is indisputably the most well known component of the cannabis plant, and these three letters — THC — are recognizable almost as the iconic leaf of this dear plant of ours.

A lot of people still associate tetrahydrocannabinol only as the main culprit behind marijuana intoxication, and perceive this enigmatic compound just as a tool for getting high, but luckily the truth is an utterly different story.

We’re going to shed some light (actually a lot of light) on this perplexing subject, because a complete understanding of THC is one of the most important things in canna-education, so if you consider yourself a true cannabis aficionado, pay close attention.

To properly start this off, we need to figure out what THC really is, and what is the function of this compound within the plant itself.

Reasons to Start Vaporizing Medical Marijuana

vaporize marijuana

Vaporizing medical marijuana has become a popular activity because of the many health benefits that come along with it. Vaporizing is also a more convenient and safe way to inhale marijuana compared to smoking a joint. Take a look at some reasons why you should start vaporizing medical marijuana for your health.

Stoner Rules 101: Everything You Need to Know About the Circle Etiquette

Ever since the widespread use of cannabis began with the hipster subculture (not the recent lame hipsters, but those from the 1940’s), and after them the beatniks, and later on the hippie movement of the 60’s, these archaic potheads developed a specific etiquette on how to smoke cannabis in the company of others.

Even though these subcultures had some pretty big differences between them, the sets of rules established by them changed very little through the decades, even to this day.

Naturally, some aspects became somewhat distorted because so much time has passed, but the core principles remained exactly as they were.

It should be noted that these orders of conduct are reserved only for sharing the cannabis flowers with other people, and they definitely don’t apply if you’re hitting the joint by your lonesome.

So if you’re smoking/dabbing/vaping by yourself, do whatever the hell you want, but if you’re not, carefully inspect these rules, because if you abide by them everyone in your circle will think you’re trés chill.
