What are Cannabinoids?

Amanda Witters Leave a Comment

Cannabinoids are the primary chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant.  Of the more than eighty-five identified cannabinoids, the two most frequently referenced compounds are:

Tetrahydocannabinol (THC) or Tetrahydocxannabinol is historically known for its psychoactive properties

Cannabidiol (CBD) or Cannibidiol is generally associated with antioxidant and neuroprotectant properties and is non-psychotropic.

Within the human body, located primarily throughout the brain and central nervous system, there is a regulatory system that the human body is wired to respond to through our body’s own type of internally produced cannabinoid called endocannabinoids.

Research indicates cannabinoids have a positive impact on health and well-being and does not cause a high. This makes it a safer, less controversial alternative, while still offering significant health benefits. CBD is well known for its wellness properties and its capacity to offer ease and relaxation.
