There are more than 80 identified phytocannabinoids in hemp. Cannabinoids can be phytocannabinoids and can be endocannabinoids – depending on where they are made. They are the primary compounds produced in the trichomes of the cannabis plant. These compounds are key in normal immune and central nervous system functioning.
Hemp produces more than 80 different phytocannabinoids naturally. Of the 80+ non-psychoactive phytocannabinoids, Cannabidiol (CBD) is the most widely known. Others include Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabichromene (CBC) & more. While Endocannabinoids, also called endogenous cannabinoids, are molecules made by your body.
Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. Similar to opioids, cannabinoids produce their effects by interacting with specific receptors, located within different parts of the central nervous system. Simply put, cannabinoids regulate how cells communicate – how they send, receive, or process messages.
