Cannabinoids such as THC and CBD are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in Cannabis sativa plants. There are at least 480 different compounds in Cannabis plants, and less than 100 of those are cannabinoids. THC, or Tetrahydrocannabinol, has long been the most well-known compound in Cannabis plants as it is responsible for causing the psychoactive effects. Cannabidiol (CBD), makes up about 40% of the resin extract of cannabis plants, has gained some medical notoriety over the past decade. The CBD cannabinoids interact with specific receptors on the surface of cells found in the brain and throughout the central nervous system. The CBD binds with these receptors and imitates compounds which are naturally produced by the body called endocannabinoids, which help maintain an internal balance of health. In simple terms, physical complications or unpleasant symptoms can occur whenever there is a deficiency within the body’s endocannabinoid system. Different cannabinoids have different effects depending on which receptors they bind to. THC bind to receptors in the brain, whereas CBD is attracted to receptors which are located throughout the body, providing various types of relief for a wide range of symptoms from pain and inflammation, to nausea and depression.
