Cannabinoids in Cannabis and Your Own Body

Updated: Aug 5, 2019

When we talk with people interested in learning about cannabis, one of the first things they ask about is what THC and CBD is and what they do. With our technical answer,

“THC and CBD are the two most prominent cannabinoids in cannabis that connect to our endocannabinoid receptors in our body to assist in homeostatic therapy"

their eyes glaze over. Don’t worry, this happens to us all the time. Therefore, we are here to help explain it further!

Unfortunately, this industry has two major issues;

  1. There are not that many people who understand cannabis more than the fact that it can get you high, and

  2. Most of the words that describe cannabis are long, scientific, and a mouthful…

Well, we have good and bad news. The bad news is there are no rudimentary words or definitions for cannabinoids that easily explain what they do, but the good news is we will lay it all out here so you can fully understand the process and be able to just send a link to your friend so you don’t have to explain it. Yay for technology!

So, without further ado, lets dive into cannabinoids!

To start, cannabinoids are not seldom found in cannabis. There are cannabinoids in many foods you eat and are produced inside your body!
