THC has a plethora of effects that are being extensively researched for medicinal use. While THC is most well-known for being the psychoactive compound from cannabis plants that produces its ‘high’ or ‘buzz’ it is also being researched to relieve the symptoms of:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Nerve pain and damage
- Tremors associated with Parkinson’s disease
Just like CBD, THC interacts with and influences the receptors found in the endocannabinoid system. That means its effects can be felt throughout a variety of physiological systems, including the digestive system, central nervous system, pain signaling system, appetite, mood, and the sleep and wake cycle, too.
