What are the cannabis chemicals CBD and THC?

One of the most versatile discoveries of humankind, cannabis is an amazing plant that has proved useful in a wealth of ways – the stalks can be used to create fibres for fabrics, the pulp is nutritious, and the leaves, oh the leaves… not only can they facilitate a “good time”, but they are bountiful in medical potential, something the federal government is loath to admit. The cannabis sativa, indica, and ruderalis are popular and useful because of chemicals that occur within the plant. These are called ‘cannabinoids’, and they mimic neurotransmitters that our body produces naturally, and interact with our endocannabinoid system, one which regulates function like sleepiness, memory, hunger, and happiness. So far, researchers have discovered over 80 different cannabinoids, although of these the most popular and potent tend to be tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).

You can find THC and CBD in other plants, but they were first identified and studied in cannabis back in the 1960s, when the interest in weed had reached a fever pitch. Endocannabinoid receptors can be found throughout the brain and body, on the central nervous system, on neurons, and on immune cells. When cannabinoids bind to these receptors, they trigger a response that can prompt the increase or decrease of the production of neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin, both of which significantly impact our mood.

Is there a difference between THC and CBD?

That these two chemicals are both considered cannabinoids is probably where the similarities of them end. First, THC is psychoactive, and most individuals seek out strains higher in this compound because of that characteristic cannabis “high” that has given the plant such a negative reputation. CBD, on the other hand, is non-psychoactive, and can block the uptake of THC if both are present at the same time. Additionally, THC and CBD bind to different receptors in the brain – THC interacts with CB1 (to provide feelings of euphoria, decreased social anxiety, reduced nausea, pain relief, and improved mood), but CBD has an affinity for the CB2 receptors throughout the body, proving clinically beneficial as an antidepressant, anticonvulsant, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumoral, and is neuroprotective, meaning that it can help protect the brain from damage.

Can I legally buy weed seeds in Laurel?

Maryland instituted their medical marijuana laws back in 2014, when they decided to allow patients with a small number of qualifying conditions access to medical cannabis that could be used as part of their therapeutic regime. These conditions are:

  • Cachexia, Anorexia, or Wasting Syndrome
  • Chronic Pain
  • Nausea
  • Seizures
  • Severe or persistent muscle spasms

Though (non-edible) medical cannabis products are allowed, local lawmakers have yet to give the go ahead for growing their own pot at home. This doesn’t mean you have to wait to get top quality weed seeds, however, since they are considered an adult novelty item and don’t fall under the legal purview of the recreational ban.

Customers in Laurel have nothing but fantastic things to say about Growers Choice

This was my fifth order from Growers Choice. One order was for auto-flowering Northern Lights, and the other was for different feminized strains. You have to be careful in MD, but I germed one from each order and they became beautiful plants, super healthy. I was actually impressed with the NL buds, really fat. The shipping was fast, so I can’t say anything bad about that, and the prices are just right, especially for the quality of the product. These guys are my ‘go-to; for seeds now.
