What are cannabinoids? Cannabinoids are chemicals found in the cannabis plant. The most well-known cannabinoid is THC which is the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis.

CBD – cannabidiol – is another major constituent of the plant. As i mentioned earlier, patients, people, doctors will come and say, I don’t want to get high I want the medical portion of the plant. Actually, there are about 120 different cannabinoids isolated in the cannabis plant and they are all medical, they are all beneficial, they are all exhibiting various effects from fighting cancer, to sleep disorders, PTSD, brain disorders – the list goes on and on. Remember, cannabis is not a one size fits all. What works for a friend or family member with the same ailment, may not work for you. Do your research, meet with a medical professional, and see what cannabinoid is best for you.
