The Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids and What They Do

The following information on cannabinoids is not intended to treat, cure or diagnose any disease or health condition.  However, as you've probably learned, there are many people reporting very positive results.

So, what are cannabinoids?  Simply, they are naturally occurring compounds found in cannabis plants.  The two cannabis plants are marijuana and hemp.  The compounds detailed below are found in varying degrees in the two plants.  For instance, generally THC is found at noticeably higher levels in marijuana than in hemp.  As such, hemp and hemp extracts will not get one 'high' while generally, most marijuana extracts will get someone 'high'.

So, here are the cannabinoids and what some of their most commonly reported benefits or properties are:

Hopefully, this cannabinoid information is helpful to you and your loved ones in finding relief and well-being.

We feel quite strongly that these various compounds can help many.   Of course, the FDA requires that we say this is only our opinion, but of course, anyone watching the news learns of many reports of positive results from the use of these plants and their compounds.  Also, please know that the health conditions listed above are only the most commonly reported health conditions affected by these compounds.  

When selecting CBD Hemp Oil, most people find it most beneficial to buy CBD Oil that is a full spectrum CBD so that it will contain as many of these compounds as possible.  Of course, THC and the other THC related compounds will naturally be low in all hemp products.  But, the other cannabinoids will be present at greater levels in full spectrum CBD Extracts.  Please select accordingly.

As you can tell by the list above, Cannabidol or CBD is the compound that applies to more health conditions than any other compound.  But, when full spectrum CBD is taken, the more well rounded extract seems to gain many more positive results by more people.  Hopefully, one day soon, all of us will have full and free access to these plants and what they can offer for us.  Additionally, getting straight answers, advice and guidance from business, government and our doctors would be a huge plus, too.
