Chemical compound



Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids from plants such as Cannabis and hemp. THC and CBD are naturally occurring substances in Cannabis that are formed in the resinous trichomes of the cannabis plant. They interact directly with the body’s endocannabinoid system receptors to cause various physical and mental effects. Phytocannabinoids differ from endocannabinoids in terms of origin because the latter are found among plants and humans.
