Cannabinoids are a class of compounds found in the cannabis plant. Cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are the two main cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, which contains over 100 other compounds. Cannabinol (CBN) and Cannabigerol (CBG) are minor cannabinoids that have recently been found to have therapeutic potential.
The cannabis plant also contains terpenes, flavonoids and other compounds, which are known to have potential medical benefits and give each cultivar its unique scent and flavour.
Cannabinoids and terpenes work together to create the “Entourage Effect,” which suggests that the many parts of the cannabis plant work better as a whole than in isolation.
How Cannabinoids Affect our Brain and Body
Endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids made by our bodies, are vital to our own survival because they support development of our nervous system, sleep, appetite, bone growth, endocrine function, memory control, mood regulation, and many other processes.
Cannabinoids act on the same receptors in our bodies and brains whether they are synthesized by our bodies (endo-cannabinoids), are from a plant (phyto-cannabinoids), or made in a lab (synthetic cannabinoids like Nabilone).
