Learn about THC

The most researched cannabinoid is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC is responsible for the way your brain and body respond to cannabis, including the high and intoxication.

Cannabis that contains very low amounts of THC in its flowers and leaves (less than 0.3%) is classified as hemp.
