Cannabinoids are chemical compounds from the Cannabis Sativa (Hemp) plant. This includes CBD as well as many, many other cannabinoids that are used for a variety of conditions. Other popular cannabinoids include: CBG, CBN, CBC, CBD-A, CBD-V.
Cannabinoids interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system. This system is connected to other physiological systems (immune, digestive, & nervous). Cannabinoids bind to the body’s receptors to boost the production of the body’s own naturally occurring cannabinoids.
