THE MOST PROMINENT CANNABINOIDS FOUND IN CANNABIS

CBD and THC are the two primary cannabinoids produced by the cannabis (marijuana) plant. CBD does not generate THC-like psycho-activity. 
Are these cannabis products safe?

“High CBD” plant material typically contains varying levels of THC, sometimes in significant amounts. Most simple extraction processes cannot reliably extract CBD solely or primarily.

However, UNV Medical intends to invest in technology to remove THC from a “high CBD” extract.

How does CBD work?​​

​CBD works through a number of complex mechanisms. Pre-clinical studies indicate that CBD has analgesic (pain-relieving), anticonvulsant, antipsychotic and neuroprotective effects. Unlike THC, it does not bind to the CB1 or CB2 cannabinoids receptors, which is why it does not produce the THC-like psycho-activity. 

THC -(-)-trans-Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol

The isolation of THC was first achieved by an Israeli chemist by the name of Raphael Mechoulam. In 1964, Mechoulam isolated and synthesized THC from Lebanese hashish, marking the beginning of cannabis research that would lead to the discovery of many other cannabinoids, cannabinoid receptors throughout the body, and endocannabinoids–the THC-like compounds our body naturally produces to maintain stability and health.
