Overview - Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

Description of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

The plant-based (phytocannabinoid) Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) was discovered in 1964 and by 2016 thirty-one distinct members had been identified. THC is primarily (but not exclusively) responsible for many of positive and negative mind-altering effects associated with the herb. And, of course, THC is the most studied of all cannabis' individual parts. THC is exclusive to cannabis, but it is also produced synthetically.
