Years ago Professor Raphael Mechoulam researched terpenes. These are non-active compounds in cannabis which also can be found in many other plants. He found out that they influence the activity of other compounds in cannabis, such as THC and CDB. In this episode the Professor points out the importance of terpenes in cannabis.
In 1964 Professor Raphael Mechoulam and his team of researchers discovered and isolated tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis - for the very first time. The 50 year anniversary of the discovery of THC was celebrated during the third edition of the UFCM iCare symposium in Strasbourg, which took place on October 22nd 2014.
Sensi Seeds interviewed Professor Mechoulam during UFCM, and we present this interview to you in the second chapter of SensiBilisation.
