Current research indicates that the Endocannabinoid System is our master regulatory system. As such it is a “master” system in our bodies and actually sits above another “master” system we all know about called the central nervous system. Most of the benefits of cannabis come from its abilities to modulate the Endocannabinoid System and thereby have actions on the central nervous system system. Some finer benefits, sometimes called “the entourage effects”, are caused by medicinal terpenes which further affect the central nervous system. A cannabis strain containing linalool will be downregulating partially because of the affects of linalool on the central nervous system.
So what about THC-A? THC-A is the “acidic” form of THC and is non-psychoactive, which means it won’t get you high. This is the NATURAL form of THC. When you smoke cannabis, or process it, you “de-carb” it using heat or pressure. This knocks off the -A and creates THC which is NON acidic and also is the psychoactive part of cannabis. Eating raw leaves of any cannabis plant will result in NO psychoactivity, but a plentiful dose of THC-A.
THC-A also has a unique property that is very powerful. In addition to doing almost everything that THC can do, but get you high, it also affects another “master” system called our peroxisome system. This system is our repair and waste system in nucleated cells. THC-A affects the peroxisome system in a way that helps reset our immunity.
If you are suffering from an auto-immune situation, or are just wanting to reset after a health situation, THC-A is an excellent way to reset.

When THC is produced in the cannabis plant it is produced as an acid called THC-A. When you smoke cannabis you decarboxylate it, which means the heat removes the acid and the THC remains. THC-A can also be decarboxylated using an oven and this is done to “active” distillates. THC-A is non-psychoactive but has incredible health properties. In fact THC-A affects one of our oldest neuroreceptors called PPAR. In particular THC-A modulates PPAR-gamma. PPAR gamma assists with: fatty acid metabolism, glucose regulation and insulin sensitivity (helps w/T2 diabetes, etc), immune balance, and inflammation.
