What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are the most well-known compounds in the cannabis plant and include THC and CBD. THC is the psychoactive compound that produces the “high” associated with marijuana use, while CBD is non-psychoactive and doesn’t produce any intoxicating effects. Studies have shown that when CBD is combined with THC and other cannabinoids, it can enhance its revitalizing, relieving & balancing effects.
CBD, is generally known for its many benefits like relieving anxiety, chronic pain, and insomnia. It’s a great all-natural alternative to chemical medicines.
Similarly, THC has many of the same benefits of CBD but with the additional psychoactive component is well know for it’s mind-altering effects of increased creativity and for inducing a high.
But what many people don’t know is that both CBD and THC work even better when combined with other compounds found in cannabis in what is known as the “entourage effect.”
