2022 Cannabinoids List
Welcome to the world of cannabinoids. It's a wonderful world I must say. Whether you're searching for more information about a product you purchased at the dispensary or trying to learn more about the effects of a specific cannabinoid, don't worry, we have you covered. 😉
What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. There are over 400 chemicals found in the plant, and 60 of them are considered cannabinoid compounds. They each have their own effects (psychoactive or nonpsychoactive) and offer a number of benefits for everything from chronic pain to inflammation to stress.
One example is Delta-9 THC which comes from the cannabis plant. We call it a phytocannabinoid, meaning it’s a cannabinoid chemical found in plants (phyto- means “plant” in Greek). When scientists synthesize THC in a lab, it’s a synthetic cannabinoid, meaning it’s human-made. Most cannabinoids are found in cannabis in small numbers, however, many have to make a synthetic cannabinoid to make the oil content strong enough to feel.
