  • Tetrahydrocannabinol acid (THCA) • Non-psychoactive until heated.
  • Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) Psychoactive compound found mostly in cannabis sativa strains.
  • Cannabidiol (CBD) Non-intoxicating compound found both in cannabis and hemp.
  • Cannabichromene (CBC) Non-intoxicating compound. CBC stems from CBGA. Both THC and CBD also stem from CBGA.
