Cannabinoids

Although CBD and THC are the most popular phytocannabinoids, there are a couple of additional molecules of importance in the Hemp plant. There are over 100 different cannabinoids that have been isolated from the Cannabis to date, and researchers are still discovering new cannabinoids. At the end of 2019 scientists in Italy found 2 NEW cannabinoids: CBDP and THCP. THCP was found to have over 30 times more active than THC. It is important to note that different phytocannabinoids interact and bind differently at the receptors, which causes different reactions in the cells and ultimately in the organs where those receptors are located. Cannabichromene (CBC), which was first discovered in the 1980s, plays a role in the inflammatory process. Each Cannabinoid has been found to have different affinities for certain receptors and will create different downstream effects in our body.
