Cannabinoids 101

Apr 28


What are cannabinoids, you ask? This is a common question. We will answer all your questions regarding the most important cannabinoids in this article.

Cannabinoids Definition and brief explanation

The cannabis plant contains cannabinoids. Their research is still in its infancy. Scientists have been unable to research cannabis, cannabinoids, and other potential medicinal benefits due to the widespread demonization of this plant.

It has been revealed that cannabis contains more than 480 active chemical substances. The cannabis plant contains 80 of the most important compounds. This unique active ingredient yields hundreds more variables.

8 Most Important Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids can interact with our cannabinoid receptors. They interact with the cannabinoid receptors in our brain and nervous system in a very different way. We have compiled a list of 8 of the most important cannabinoids in cannabis plants for simplicity.

THC - (-)-D9-trans-Tetrahydrocannabinol

THC is the most well-known cannabinoid. THC is responsible for marijuana's psychoactive effects. THC is responsible for the release of dopamine, which causes feelings of well-being and euphoria.

THC is closely related with the cannabinoids CBG, and CBD. CBG is the mother of THC, and CBD. CBG is converted to THC or CBD during the growth of cannabis plants.

CBD – Cannabidiol

CBD (cannabidiol) has been growing in popularity over the past few years. Cannabidiol (cannabidiol) is today the most important ingredient in the hemp plant. Medical cannabinoid research has shown extraordinary results. CBD is not psychoactive, so it doesn't get you high. It is common to use CBD in. It is also believed that CBD reduces, or at the very least regulates, THC's effects. You can find CBD products at Get Kine.

CBG - Cannabigerol

Recent research has revealed that CBG is the mother of THC, and CBD. CBG, the stem cell, is transformed into a two-cell during the cannabis plant's growth phase. CBG is therefore the template. CBG is converted to THC or CBD during the flowering phase.


As the cannabis plant ages, CBN naturally occurs in it. The cannabinoid THC, which is a cannabinoid found in cannabis plants, will eventually convert to CBN when it is heated or exposed to oxygen. THC can also be used to make CBN from cannabis.

CBC - Cannabichromene

CBC is not intoxicating and doesn't give off a high like THC. It binds poorly with CB1 cannabinoid brain receptors, which is why it is not intoxicating. However, CBC can bind to other receptors in your body such as the transient receptor potankyrin 1 and vanilloid receptor 1. These receptors are both linked to pain perception. These receptors are activated by CBC, which releases more of the body's natural endocannabinoids such as anandamide.
