Depending on how long you’ve been using cannabis, you may be aware that there are several different things going on chemically inside the plant.
For those of us who are new, cannabinoids are the phytochemicals which create the euphoric, relaxing, and medicinal effects that cannabis is known for.
Make sure you know what you’re putting in your body next time you grab one of our delicious cannabis-infused iced beverages!
The second you consume cannabis, your body and neural network become familiar with tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. This is the most prevalent cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, and it’s also the one responsible for the psychoactive high and many positive therapeutic effects such as relief from pain, inflammation and stress. All symptoms which can be relieved by drinking a Therapy Tonics beverage!
Next to THC, the second most prevalent cannabinoid found in marijuana is pure Hemp, or cannabidiol. It’s non-psychoactive but can help promote brain health, healthy sleep, and anti-inflammation properties. This chemical is very rare, but hemp and cannabis plants can be specially bred to produce more. From there, pure Hemp can be extracted or distilled into oils, foods and more.
Brand new applications for cannabinoids are constantly being discovered as the science community learns more about medical cannabis. These cannabinoids are hard to find without advanced laboratory technology.
From CBN, which can aid in sleep and spasm disorders, to THCV, which provides anxiety relief without causing “the munchies,” there are so many other non-psychoactive cannabinoids that we can extract and consume for better health.
Here at Therapy Tonics we believe in advancing the science – and the flavors – behind cannabinoid therapy. Currently we offer one mixed-ratio THC/Hemp beverage option, as well as five unique clear cannabinoid tinctures.
