Cannabichromanon and Other Cannabinoids
There are so many people who always seem interested to learn something new about cannabis sativa or marijuana plant. Even though they are not directly involved with the research work or the consumption of the plant, the popularity is due to the ongoing global debate on marijuana legalization.
Another reason for this prevailing hype of the marijuana plant is due to its psychoactive properties. The plant is also known to possess several medical uses. It has shown proven results in the treatment of different symptoms including cancer or epilepsy. However, it is still considered as the Schedule I drug and its use is still prohibited.
Having said this, you must be wondering about the products that contain cannabis compounds and are openly available in the market or online such as cannabis oils. You must be thinking that why are we referring to cannabis as the prohibited drug? Well, it is true that some of the compounds of cannabis are used in different products, but if you have even the slightest idea about the cannabis plant then you must know, it contains hundreds of compounds.
In fact, almost each of these compound or compound category has distinctive properties and chemical structure. Just like some of these compounds are well known in terms of their properties while others are yet to be discovered like Cannabichromanon, similarly, some of the compounds are safe for consumption while others have psychoactive properties.
THC is the most popular psychoactive compound
The compound that is famous for having high psychoactive properties is THC. It is one of the cannabinoids that directly affects the brain functionality. Not all the compounds present in the cannabis plant have psychoactive properties but the majority of them are non-psychoactive in nature and are great to eliminate the symptoms of many chronic diseases.
Cannabichromanon and other Cannabinoids
Well, if we speak of Cannabichromanon – not so well-known cannabinoid or cannabis compound, it belongs to the THC category. The compound lacks the research work and not fully discovered yet but like other compounds which belong to THC category, Cannabichromanon is likely to possess some unique properties as well.
It is believed that there are more than 100 cannabinoids in the cannabis plant including Cannabichromanon. Some are present at low levels while a few are found abundantly in the plant.
Unfortunately, Cannabichromanon belongs to those cannabis compounds which are not yet discovered and their distinctive nature is still unknown. As a result, all we can assume is that the compound (Cannabichromanon) may cause the similar effects as that of THC.
As we know cannabinoids belong to the class of active chemical compounds, they do have their particular effects on the human body. These cannabis-derived active compounds act on several cannabinoid receptors present in your cells and are part of your endocannabinoid system. It is a regulatory network that is responsible to keep your body functions in balance. Nonetheless, when these cannabinoids interact with cannabinoid receptors, they are able to modify the neurotransmitter release in the brain.
