What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are active chemicals naturally found in cannabis AND in the body. Plant-derived cannabinoids in cannabis are called phytocannabinoids, while human-derived cannabinoids are called endocannabinoids.
There are over 100 different cannabinoids that can be isolated from cannabis, each with distinct impacts on our nervous, immune, digestive, and skeletal systems.
The most notable cannabinoid is the psychoactive phytocannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Cannabidiol (CBD) is another popular phytocannabinoid.
CBD is a non-intoxicating chemical compound. So it doesn’t alter the mind like THC. CBD is surging in demand because of its robust and varied health benefits.
