Cannabinoids are the natural and chemically unique compounds found in cannabis seeds, flowers or plants that act on the brain’s cannabinoid receptors in the cells of the human body, and offer a variety of benefits for health, including pain relief and others.
There are over 110 known varieties of cannabinoids like CBG, THCv, CBN, and others, but tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and CBD are well-known because they are the most abundant and have euphoric and psychoactive effects on your body that motivate the recreational use of the marijuana plant. Often, to get more potent effects, cannabis products can be enhanced with CBD.
If you are looking to use marijuana as another form of medication, choose a strain with high levels of CBD as it is also used to treat Dravet syndrome.
