- CANNABINOL (CBD) A psychoactive cannabinoid that comes about from the degradation of TCH. CBD potentiates (increases the power) the effects of TCH and is often described as creating the stoners couch lock effect.
- TETRAHYDROCANNABIVARIN (THCV) THCV is found in large quantities in Sativa strains. It is currently being developed as a treatment for metabolic disorders including diabetes. THVC has been shown to block the psychoactive effects of TCH.
- ACIDIC CANNABINOIDS The major cannabinoid constitutes in raw cannabis in the form of acids. Research suggests the acidic cannabinoids hold most of the anti-inflammatory properties, that cannabis has to offer.

When cannabis is smoked, the heat causes the acidic cannabinoids to decarboxylate, which creates their nonacidic counterparts, such as THC.
