anti-nausea, sedative, anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory.
Results from the oxidation of THC, therefore not typically found within an undisturbed cannabis plant. Sedative, antibiotic
The male cannabis plant grows to produce
seeds to pollinate female flowers.
Most of the males energy is put toward producing pollen not flower.
The female produces flowers
to attract pollen.
Most of the female energy is put toward attracting pollen and protection
In order to protect herself and make herself more attractive, the female cannabis plant produces far more medicinal properties within her
Each flower consists
vegetation known as a
Calyx cluster together to form a flower designed to catch pollen.
Each calyx is coated in gland cells called

is filled with
cannabinoids and terpenes
Resin heads release cannabinoids and terpenes.
provide effect, smell and flavor.
Intro to Cannabis
strains vary in their effects and can have specific medical benefits for patient needs.
Each strain has different levels of terpenes and cannabinoids.
This combination of
cannabinoid and terpenoid
interaction is called an
which is specific
to each strain.
the brain’s ability to absorb the pharmacological impact of terpenes.
Canabinoids are a class of chemical compounds
CB1 an CB2
receptors in the brain and body.
Responsible for the euphoric and anticonvulsive effects. Found in the brain and central nervous system.
Responsible for anti-inflammatory
and possibly other therapeutic effects. Found in the immune system
Anti-anxiety, prevents memory loss from THC, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-psychotic, anti-tumor.
Found in tropical strains. Increases some side effects of THC. Potent, antibacterial, and rare.
Used by cannabis plant to make THC, CBD, and CBC.
The interaction of terpenes with cannabinoids is responsible for why different cannabis strains possess different medicinal effects.
Limonene has been shown to decrease anxiety and depression.
αPinene is anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, memory aid and is a bronchodilator in humans.
Linalool is anesthetic, anti-convulsant, analgesic, and anti-anxiety.
Myrcene is anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, and used in the treatment of spasms, insomnia, and pain. Myrcene has been shown to increase the maximum saturation level of the CB1 receptor, allowing for a greater maximum psychoactive effect.
are a large and diverse class of organic compounds produced by a variety of plants. More than 200 terpenoids have been identified in Cannabis. The most common and most studied include limonene, myrcene, alpha-pinene, linalool and beta-caryophyllene.
a wide variety of pharmacological effects and interact with cannabinoids.
Beta-Caryophyllene is anti-inflamitory, analgesic and protects cells lining the digestive tract.
