What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are natural compounds found in both the human body and in the hemp plant. In fact, cannabinoids are the building blocks of many of your body’s natural functions. To date, scientists have identified over 80 natural cannabinoids.
Cannabinoids work within your body by interacting with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS has receptors and uses cannabinoids to support a whole host of different bodily functions. However, when your body’s natural cannabinoids need a boost, that’s where CBD comes in. CBD is a phytocannabinoid.
Hemp actually consists of more than 80 different phytocannabinoids, including Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG), Cannabichromene (CBC), and others.
