What Is Cannabinoid?

Power FlowerMay 14, 2020

Cannabinoids are organic molecules naturally produced by hemp and cannabis which activate two of the body's central nervous system receptors: CB1 and CB2.* CB1 receptors are primarily located in the brain, while CB2 receptors are spread throughout the rest of the body. Because CBD does not activate the brain's CB1 receptors, it is largely non-psychoactive. Each of the 100+ known cannabinoids have unique receptor interactions, producing individual results. Research has also shown that cannabinoids' benefits multiply when used together, producing what is called the "entourage effect." *More information on receptor activation and their effects on the body should be researched through reliable sources.
