Delta 9 THC is the primary psychoactive component of the Cannabis sativa plant. It is responsible for most of the psychological effects associated with using marijuana, including altered perceptions, increased appetite, and feelings of euphoria. Delta-9-THC binds to the CB1 receptors in the brain and central nervous system, leading to its characteristic effects. The potency of Delta-9-THC can vary depending on the strain of cannabis and the method of consumption. It is commonly consumed through smoking or vaporization, but can also be consumed orally through edibles or tinctures.
