Roughly 80 cannabinoids, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) is the primary psychoactive molecule found in cannabis plants. Δ8-THC is an isobaric isomer of Δ9-THC that differs by the position of a double bond. It has lower psychoactive potency, more chemically stable, and potentially better medicinal properties than Δ9-THC. Cannabinol (CBN) is used to monitor the freshness of the sample since Δ9-THC easily oxidizes to CBN. Cannabidiol (CBD) has no psychoactive activity but it has many potent medicinal properties.
