Cannabinoids are known for their ability to interact with cannabinoid receptors in the body's endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS plays a crucial role in regulating a wide range of functions in the body, including appetite, pain sensation, mood, and memory.
There are over 100 different cannabinoids found in cannabis, but the two most well-known are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). THC is the psychoactive cannabinoid that is responsible for the high that is associated with cannabis use. CBD is non-psychoactive and is believed to have a number of potential therapeutic effects, including reducing anxiety and inflammation.
Cannabinoids can be consumed in a variety of ways, including smoking, vaporizing, and consuming edibles. They can also be extracted from the cannabis plant and made into oils, tinctures, and other products for more precise dosing.
