Psychoactive substances are chemicals that affect the brain and alter perception, mood, consciousness, and behavior. Cannabis, a psychoactive plant, contains various compounds known as cannabinoids. These cannabinoids interact with the body's endocannabinoid system, producing a range of effects. One of the most well-known cannabinoids is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is responsible for the psychoactive properties of cannabis. THC binds to cannabinoid receptors in the brain, resulting in euphoria, relaxation, altered perception of time, and increased appetite. Other cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol (CBD), have non-psychoactive effects and are known for their potential therapeutic benefits.
