Cannabinoids


Including endocannabinoids produced by the body, phyto-cannabinoids found in nature, and synthetic cannabinoids, these compounds that activate cannabinoid receptors in the Endocannabinoid System.

CB1 Receptor


These receptors in the Endocannabinoid system are located in the central and peripheral nervous systems and are activated by all types of cannabinoids. These receptors are largely responsible for the efficacy of THC.

CB2 Receptor


These secondary receptors are believed to be located in the peripheral tissues of the immune system, the gastrointestinal system, the peripheral nervous system, and to a lesser degree in the central nervous system.

CBD


Cannabidiol, or CBD, is non-intoxicating phyto-cannabinoid, one of the most abundant phytocannabinoids found in the hemp plant.

Dosing

THC


Tetrahydrocannabinoid, or THC, is the principal phyto-cannabinoid that gives cannabis its psychoactive effects.
