What is Cannabis?

The plant Cannabis sativa, aka marijuana, has been used for ceremonial and medical purpose throughout human history.



Documented uses of marijuana



In 1964, the world learned much more about marijuana with the discovery of Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC.)


THC is the main psychoactive component of approximately 70 phytocannabinoids identified in the plant.


This initial discovery led to the generation of a variety of synthetic cannabinoids with similar or distinct structures to phytocannabinoids.


  • led to the identification and successful cloning of the cannabinoid receptor 1 (CB1R)

  • cannabinoid receptor (CBR)

  • termed as the cannabinoid receptor 2 (CB2R)

  • CB1R and CB2R are widely-acknowledged as CBRs


More human receptors interact with cannabinoids


  • G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs)

  • ion channels

  • nuclear receptors

Other receptors serve as endogenous agonists of CBRs endocannabinoids

  • N-arachidonoyl-ethanolamine (AEA; anandamide)

  • 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG)

"In recent years, much attention has been drawn to utilizing marijuana extracts in medicine [14]. Due to the clinical application of marijuana and the non-psychoactive nature of most phytocannabinoids except THC, the therapeutic potential of these compounds has been greatly appreciated."
