What are Cannabinoids?

The most famous cannabinoids include THC and CBD. These are naturally occurring compounds. The human body, however, produces its own cannabinoids, known as endocannabinoids. They react to various internal and external stressors. They move in the endocannabinoid system, reacting to threats to the human body.

They play a key role in the immune system and our mental well-being. Regardless of the cause, they constantly search for the source of the problems by activating various endocannabinoid receptors (mainly CB1 and CB2).

Endocannabinoids together with the CB receptors act like keys to various locks in our bodies. By working together, they create an endocannabinoid system.

There are also cannabinoids found in cannabis. They are called phytocannabinoids (of plant origin). Phytocannabinoids are the cannabinoids produced in hemp and cannabis that are of value to the cultural and medical communities.

They include tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). In general, cannabinoids produced in plants are called phytocannabinoids. Endocannabinoids are cannabinoid molecules produced in the human body.

Once again, Cannabinoids are a class of diverse chemical compounds that act on cannabinoid receptors (Our CB Receptors) in cells that repress neurotransmitter release in the brain. The health benefits of all cannabinoids is numerous

to name a few: THC, CBD, CBD, THCVA, CBDV, CBN, CBCVA, CBCA, CBDA, and the list goes on and on...
