What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are the primary compounds produced by the plant genus, Cannabis (Hemp), which is believed to be one of the oldest domesticated agricultural crops and is arguably the most amazingly versatile plant in the world.
Through selective breeding, Hemp has been cultivated for thousands of years to produce many valuable commodities, including textiles, building materials, fuel, and food. In addition, breeders have purposely developed strains with high amounts of medicinal cannabinoids, especially CBD. Scientific studies have identified 108 cannabinoids with different properties and herbal effects.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most well-known cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, renowned for its psychoactive and pain-killing qualities. But unknown to many, there are several other(non-hallucinogenic) cannabinoids which include CBC, CBD, CBG, CBN. Among these, CBD is the most studied and celebrated.
THC is the only psychoactive/hallucinogenic cannabinoid; the term “marijuana” refers only to varieties of cannabis that contain substantial amounts of THC, while strains that are high in CBD with only trace amounts (0.3% or below) of THC are called Agricultural/Industrial Hemp. Why? Because while CBD has been shown to possibly have wonderful health benefits, it does not cause a psychotropic “high” or euphoria at all. Instead, studies appear to indicate that CBD may quell anxiety and boost mood by promoting a sense of calmness and ease without distorting mental cognition or causing you to feel “stoned” or out of the ordinary.
