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.

10-α-OH-Δ8THC

10-α-OH-Δ8THC is a recently discovered cannabinoid. The physiological and therapeutic properties of 10-α-OH-Δ8THC remain to be investigated.

THCV

Tourette's

Tourette's Syndrome is a neuropsychiatric disorder that is marked by a collection of motor- and vocal tics. Tourette's is inherited and is believed to result from dysfunctional cortical and subcortical regions in the brain. Since the mechanism behind the development of Tourette's is unknown it is difficult to predict the therapeutic potential of cannabinoids.

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.

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. Tinnitus can interfere with concentration and sleep and can cause Anxiety, depression and suicide attempt.

PTSD

OCD

OCD is an Anxiety disorder characterised by the obsessive urge for repetitive behaviour.

Psychosis and Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a chronic mental disorder that affects around 1% of the worldwide population. It causes psychotic behaviors, social and emotional disruptions and different cognitive impairments.
