According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), there are over 500 organic chemicals in cannabis …
Cannabinoids are natural chemicals produced by the cannabis plant. Scientists have discovered over 110 of them, each of which has unique properties like: relieving anxiety, reducing inflammation, managing pain, killing bacteria, and more.
The two best-known cannabinoids are THC, which is known primarily for its intoxicating effects, although it also has many medicinal qualities, and CBD, which has become widely popular due to its own therapeutic benefits and lack of intoxicating effects.
Scientists have only scratched the surface of cannabinoids’ potential, and a growing number of studies are taking a closer look at CBD, THC, and lesser-known cannabinoids like CBN (which could promote sleep) and CBG (which could counter depression).
