Marijuana (Cannabis) contains roughly 500 compounds, 70 of which are psychoactive. THC is the main psychoactive ingredient in the marijuana plant.


Psychoactive drugs are a chemical substance that acts primarily upon the central nervous system where it alters brain function, resulting in temporary changes in perception, mood, consciousness and behavior.


In the 70’s & 80’s, Marijuana had 4% THC per leaf

Today a leaf contains between 20-30% THC (5-7 times more)
