What exactly are cannabinoids and how do they help your body?
Cannabinoids are compounds that keep our bodies in balance. Our bodies create them naturally, and the cannabis plant creates very close imitations of these compounds. Cannabinoids facilitate the communication between the cells in our body to preserve the internal state of balance. So when we use cannabis, we are helping the function of our endocannabinoid system and amplifying the body’s ability to bring things back into proper order.
Cannabinoids work in concert with terpenes and other compounds to create specific effects on the body. The combinations of cannabinoids and terpenes give different strains their unique qualities, such as making you more alert, elated, focused, relaxed, or sleepy. Also, you’ll find products where cannabinoids appear in different ratios to each other to create different ranges of effects.
