The Inactive THC Cannabinoid No One is Talking About
THC-a is one of the over 100 cannabinoids studied in cannabis and is the acid form of THC. THC, as many know, is the cannabinoid which causes the “high” often associated with use of cannabis. THC-a is inactive, and non-psychoactive, until it is heated to a certain temperature when it becomes THC. Although activated THC can provide immediate onset relief for many through smoking, vaporizing or ingesting, there is a varying level of intoxication that comes along with this form of use, thus making it less attractive for patients that don’t want the high or are THC naive.
Why Cannabinoids Work
A deficiency in the endocannabinoid system often leads to one-way traffic to nerves in the body, and is the main cause of inflammation in the body; inflammation is often attributed to being the underlying issue for many conditions. Without two-way communication, immune cells are under continuous attack, leaving the nerves without a way to tell them to calm down. Studies show when you add cannabinoids to the equation as a supplement to the endocannabinoid system, two-way communication is restored, resulting in reduced inflammation.
Use of cannabinoids, such as THC-a, helps fight symptoms by providing nerves with this two-way communication; much like CBD, THC-a, provides this benefit with minimal psychoactive effects as both the inactive THC component and CBD are very low on the psychoactivity scale. Reduction of major inflammation could help you learn to listen to your body and uncover a clearer picture of your true symptoms.
