Cannabinoid guide

Cannabinoids are a group of active compounds found in the cannabis plant that give the plant its medical and recreational properties. We’re able to benefit from the effects of cannabinoids because our bodies contain the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is made up of a network of cell receptors that allow the body to interact with cannabinoids, giving us high or relaxed feelings. Scientists have successfully isolated 113 cannabinoids, but here is a list of a few of our favorites and their benefits.

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
- Psychoactive
- Most prominent cannabinoid
Cannabidiol (CBD)
- Nonpsychoactive
Cannabinol (CBN)
- Highly sedative
- Often found in indicas
Cannabigerol (CBG)
- Nonpsychoactive
- Chemical parent of THC and CBD
