Cannabinoids and Their Effects - Medical Marijuana, Inc.
If you’re looking to understand more of how cannabis elicits its effects, you should begin by first getting to know cannabinoids.
Cannabinoids are a class of active chemical compounds produced by the cannabis plant, including marijuana and hemp.
These cannabis-derived compounds act on cannabinoid receptors located in your cells as part of theendocannabinoid system, a regulatory network tasked with keeping your functions in balance.
By interacting with cannabinoid receptors, cannabinoids are able to alter the release of neurotransmitters in the brain.
The cannabinoids that come from plants are called phytocannabinoids. They share a similar molecular structure to endocannabinoids – like Anandamide and 2-AG – which your body synthesizes on its own as part of the endocannabinoid system.
It’s because phytocannabinoids are similar to endocannabinoids that they can interact with the endocannabinoid system.Cannabidiol (CBD) Delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ9-THC) Cannabichromene (CBC) Cannabinol (CBN) Cannabigerol (CBG) Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) Cannabidivarin (CBDV) Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol (Δ8-THC) Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA) Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid (THCA) Cannabidiols (CBD)
