THC is the psychoactive component in cannabis, and is associated with the euphoric affect in users. As a general rule, THC dominant varieties can contain anywhere from 18%-35% THC and contain little or no CBD. Effects can vary from uplifting to relaxing, depending on the variety and the terpene profile.
These varieties contain moderate amounts of both THC and CBD. The balance offers a different experience that many people prefer – the THC works in conjunction with the CBD to offer a balanced, mellow effect. The two cannabinoids have important effects on one another, when consumed together. When present along with THC, CBD can temper the effects of THC in your system.
CBD is the second most prevalent cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, and when isolated has no psychoactive effect (though high doses may cause drowsiness). Most CBD, dominant flower will still contain THC, usually resulting in an alert high, without the heavy, intoxicating effects commonly associated with THC dominant varieties.
Terpenes are fragrant, essential oils found in cannabis, each lending at distinctive aroma, and flavour to the flower. Terpene sense like lemon, pine, lavender, and Barry's are coming across varieties of cannabis. These oils, when heated with THC and CBD, play a strong role in determining effect. This interaction is called the entourage effect, and each variety will provide a unique experience, depending on the composition of Terpenes and cannabinoids.
Caryophyllene is a spicy, peppery terpene that is found in many edible plants, including cloves, cinnamon, and black pepper. Uplifting, this terpene is often cited as helpful for improving mood.
Myrcene is the most commonly found terpene in cannabis and can compose up to 50 percent of the plant’s terpenes. Also found in mangoes, hops, lemongrass, and basil, myrcene is linked to the sedating effect of some varietals.
Like its name suggests, limonene has a citrusy bouquet, and it is the second most common erpene found in cannabis. Cannabis varieties high in limonene may elevate mood, bolster attention and focus, and relieve stress.
Pinene is the most common terpene in the world, and can be found in pine needles, basil, and parsley. Pinene dominant varieties will smell like a forest of pine trees. A higher concentration of pinene may promote focus and alertness.
Humulene carries a subtle earthy, woody aroma, with spicy herbal notes. Also found in hops, coriander, cloves, and basil, humulene is thought to suppress hunger and reduce inflammation.
Terpinolene is characterized by a fresh, piney, floral aroma and flavour recognizable in nutmeg and cumin. In cannabis, terpinolene seems to contribute to an energetic effect.
