Cannabinoids: A Key to Chemical Compounds

A key to chemical compounds

CANNABINOIDS

Cannabinoids react with receptors in the body to encourage a healthy balance known as homeostasis. These chemical compounds are produced naturally by the body as well as from plants such as cannabis.

Endocannabinoids are produced naturally by the body and act like a bridge connecting mind and body.

Phyto cannabinoids are molecules produced by plants and interact similarly within the body.

Cannabis produces several types of cannabinoid acids that are activated (decarboxylated) usually by heat and oxygen converting them to the well-known cannabinoid’s like THC and CBD. Each cannabinoid when combined with different terpenes can trigger different therapeutic effects in the body known as the “Entourage Effect,” and they are what make specific strains of cannabis unique.

The key cannabinoids found in cannabis (along with their associate properties)  include:

Raw

CBDA Anti-Cancer, Anti-Inflammatory
CBGA
Analgesic, Anti-Inflammatory
THCA
Anti-Cancer, Anti-Inflammatory, Antispasmodic

Heated

THC Analgesic, Antibacterial, Anti-Cancer, Anti-Inflammatory, Antispasmodic, Appetite Stimulant, Neuroprotectivity
CBD Analgesic, Anti-Anxiety, Antibacterial, Anti-Cancer, Anti-Convulsive, Antidepressant, Anti-Inflammatory, Anti-Insomnia, Antipscyhotic, Antispasmodic

THE
ENDOCANNABINOID SYSTEM

( en·​do·​can·​na·​bi·​noid )

The human body has an Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which assists with regulating activities such as immune response, inflammation, sleep and wake cycles, and mood and anxiety response. Endocannabinoids and phyto cannabinoids are chemicals that trigger the cannabinoid receptors known as CB1 and CB2.

CB1 Receptors

receptors are primarily located in brain cells and the nervous system.

CB2 Receptors

are found in the immune system and other tissue throughout the body.

Cannabis interacts with the ECS by helping the mind and body to maintain appropriate cannabinoid levels and support good health through homeostasis.
