CBD

CBD is the second most common cannabinoid from the plant of cannabis. In contrast to THC, CBD is not psychoactive and the reduced side effects associated to its administration makes it as important as THC regarding its therapeutic properties.

THC

D9THC is the most common cannabinoid from the cannabis plant. Better known as THC, it has psychoactive properties and its effects include altered sensory perception and reduced short-term memory. THC has also many non-psychotropic effects like reduction of pain (analgesia), stimulation of appetite and nausea reduction.

10-α-OH-Δ8THC

11-OH-Δ9-THC is a recently discovered cannabinoid. The physiological and therapeutic properties of 11-OH-Δ9-THC remain to be investigated.

THCV

THCV is a phytocannabinoid analogous to THC.

PPARγ

PPARγ is part of the nuclear receptor family and one of the non-GPCR cannabinoid receptors. PPARγ is involved in the regulation of fat cells/adipose tissue, insulin sensitivity and inflammation.

Stroke

A stroke is marked by reduced blood flow to the brain. This reduction can be due to a blocked blood vessle (ischaemia) or a ruptured blood vessle (aneurism). Either way, as a result (part of) the brain is deprived of oxygen and nutrients which in turn causes neuronal degradation and cognitive decline.

11-OH-Δ9-THC

11-OH-Δ9-THC is the first break-down product of THC.

11-COOH-Δ9-THC

11-COOH-Δ9-THC is a secondary break-down product of THC. 11-COOH-Δ9-THC is not psychoactive and is slowly degraded. The exact physiological functions or therapeutic properties of 11-COOH-Δ9-THC are still under investigation.

Tinnitus

Tinnitus is described as a sensation of hearing sounds without any external source. This sensation can be similar to hear ringing, clicking, hissing or other sounds.

Bulimia

cannabinoids and endocannabinoids are known to strongly affect eating behavior. THC typically induces hunger and THCV suppresses it.
