What are Phytocannabinoids (aka THC and CBD)?

You have probably heard about THC and CBD, but did you know there are over 100 known phytocannabinoids (cannabinoids from plants) in the cannabis plant? 

Phytocannabinoids are plant-derived cannabinoids.  The two most well known, and well researched: 

  • Tetrahydrocannabinol:  THC –  the most abundant cannabinoid, which causes the “high” associated with cannabis. 

  • Cannabidiol:  CBD –  the 2nd most abundant cannabinoid and not psychoactive.  CBD is found in both cannabis and hemp.  CBD has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, relieves anxiety, and relieves nausea, among other things.   

However, there are over 100 known cannabinoids, meaning there is so much opportunity in the cannabis plant! Check out some of the know phytocannabinoids in the cannabis plant.


Have you heard of the ENTOURAGE EFFECT?  It is the synergistic effect of the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids found in cannabis and hemp working together to produce an effect greater than the sum of the parts.
