    It was interesting to learn some of the different chemical compounds in marijuana. I am wondering what happens to these chemicals as they are burned and inhaled. Are they really less harmfull than ciggarettes?

    I've seen a list, similar to this, only they had the Various Vaporizing temperatures, for the different components! I realize, this is just an old version,of "What's in It". As You've mentioned, they've added to your list. Too bad there's Not enough of it for scientists, to pick apart,and, find different elements,and compounds. Catch 22

    Wow guys,

    Lots of great information on this post. However, I do wonder if some of the evolutionary processes of how chemicals are not only incorporated into the chemical make up of a plant but also removed from a plant when no longer necissary for survival in an ever changing world.

    Just a though about not only what these chemicals do but why they are there and where they came from.

    They have nothing to do with that. The steroids in cannabis are described as phytosterols which are found in plants you eat, such as wheat. They're not bad for your health, and as that page describes, can actually be beneficial for you:
    • Prevent heart disease
    • Ease enlarged prostate
    • Calm inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis
    • Control blood sugar in diabetes
    Smoking pot does not cause sterility in males. It's just a myth

    Good post..You have shared chemical constituents of cannabis which I think is good reason that people must use this as medical remedy.

    Cannabis is proven to be very helpful in curing cancer and many other diseases.

    Can we find more Chemical Constituents?

    The launch of the Jane-Ome iPad Application, can include everyone in the science of Cannabis. We have already discovered new pathways and new cannabinoids that we detail on the Jane-Ome application ... get involved and let us know what you would like us to look for.

    ^ ^ Unless you have a pharmacutical list book with the chemical constituets of cannabis, and it's analogs, along with other THC drug designs that hasn't been uploaded for somebody to read and then wright about on the internet, I dought you'll read about any new subjects relating to the chemistry of cannabis.

    How does Molecular Orbital Theory relate to THC... ? lol !

    The unprocessed form of cannabis normally consists of subtending leaves, stems, and dried flowers. Hash is the resin of marijuana that has been concentrated.
