<strong>What Is THC?</strong>

Tetrahydrocannabinol is a psychoactive cannabinoid that is responsible for causing a high to marijuana users. Furthermore, the Cannabis Sativa plant species do contain both CBD and THC cannabinoids, however, marijuana is said to be rich in tetrahydrocannabinol. While another plant called hemp contains the most cannabidiol but lesser THC check out of this link https://www.healthline.com/health/cbd-vs-thc. Of course, there are two types of people, the ones who use cannabis for THC, and the ones who use it for CBD.
