PotCo Dispensary is Your One Stop Shop for All Types of THC Products
If you’ve visited PotCo Dispensary to shop for medicinal or recreational cannabis in Denver, you’ve probably heard THC mentioned in relation to potency and effects. But what is it? THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is the most abundant cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is the compound that causes the euphoric feeling and responsible for getting you high.
Once consumed, THC interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid (ECS) system by binding to both CB1 and CB2 receptors. The ECS is a signaling network that promotes homeostasis. The receptors are bound throughout the body, with CB1 receptors generally located in the central nervous system and CB2 receptors mostly found in the peripheral nervous system. The effects of THC depend on the location of the receptor and allow for a wide range of potential.
THC content varies greatly between products and strains. The consumption method and individual tolerance directly impact the ultimate experience. Frequent cannabis use typically results in an increased tolerance to THC. Newcomers should always begin with lower potency products and minimum dosage. Feel free to ask questions. PotCo Dispensary looks forward to information sharing, personalizing our recommendations and helping you navigate the rewarding diversity of options available.
