What are Cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are the chemicals found in the cannabis plant that give it its medical and recreational properties. Cannabinoids like THC and CBD interact with different receptors in the body, producing a range of effects, such as feeling ‘high’.
THC is the primary psychoactive component in cannabis that causes a euphoric ‘high’. It is associated with amplified senses, eliciting both mental and physical reactions.
CBD lacks the psychoactive effect of THC. Cannabis products with a large percentage of CBD are commonly purchased by those who want to relax without feeling ‘high’.
