Cannabinoids – one of the groups of active compounds found in cannabis. Cannabinoids are found predominantly in resin of cannabis female flowers, the best known of them being tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), cannabinol (CBN), and cannabigerol (CBG). Apart from plant cannabinoids (also called phytocannabinoids), we also know endogenous cannabinoids produced by our bodies (and all living creatures), which interact with our endocannabinoid system the same way as the cannabinoids from cannabis.
