Cannabinoids are the chemical compounds found in cannabis which react with the cannabinoid receptors in the human brain and body. Different cannabinoids produce different reactions and effects, many of which provide relief to a variety of symptoms and medical conditions.
There are more than 80 different cannabinoids found in marijuana, yet we know very little about 90 percent of them. The two most widely studied are also the most commonly known by consumers, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
THC works effectively as an:
- Appetite stimulant
- Anti-sleep apnea
- Anti-intraocular eye pressure (glaucoma)
CBD works effectively to:
- Relieve anxiety
- Suppress epileptic fits
- Reduce psychotic behavior
- Protect against neurodegenerative diseases
- Fight against bacterial infections
- Reduce diabetic symptoms
- Stimulate bone growth
- Reduce psoriasis
- Reduce risk of artery blockage
Both THC and CBD work effectively to:
- Relive pain
- Reduce inflammation
- Curb symptoms of depression
- Reduce spasms
- Reduce nausea
- Inhibit tumor cell growth
The CB Scientific Personal Analytics detection kit provides an easy and affordable way, for medical patients and recreational consumers alike, to test marijuana flowers for two different cannabinoids from the comfort home. At this time, the test kits are only available for the two most commonly known cannabinoids — THC or CBD. For the purpose of this experiment, we used the THC detection kit.
We found the results of the THC detection kit to match with the lab test results reported by The Clinic. The solution turned a deep red color, confirming that this Kosher Kush definitely contained at least 20 percent THC.
Even though knowing the cannabinoid content of dried marijuana flowers would be beneficial, especially to those seeking specific symptom relief, that information is not always available. This THC detection kit, and the CBD kit, will be very helpful for patients who want to verify the cannabinoid content of their medicine, as well as for curious recreational users. Home cultivators would also find this kit useful for testing home grown strains.
