What are Naturally Occurring Cannabinoids?

Naturally occurring cannabinoids are compounds found in the cannabis plant. In recent years, scientific research has unveiled the fascinating complexity of this plant, particularly its rich and diverse profile of naturally occurring cannabinoids. Unique to hemp, these organic compounds interact with our body’s endocannabinoid system, which maintains and regulates various physiological and cognitive processes.

While the hemp plant produces over 100 different cannabinoids, the most abundant and widely-studied ones are cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG), and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Various extraction methods can isolate these cannabinoids, allowing scientists to examine their potential therapeutic benefits and applications. Enhancing our understanding of these naturally occurring compounds can unlock new possibilities for plant-based treatments, revolutionizing how we approach well-being and health.
