Cannabinoids are active chemicals that affect receptors in the brain when consumed. The two most known are Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD).

Cannabinoids consist in three different types: those the body itself makes, those that come from plants and those that are artificially synthesized.

Cannabinoids are involved in appetite, blood pressure, blood flow to the brain, digestion, nausea, immune system, inflammation, memory, mood, movement, pain, energy balance, reproduction and stress. The discovery of the endocannabionids led the researchers to the discovery of a novel physiological system, a key component of human health and self-healing ability: The Endocannabinoid System.


For many years, researchers and clinicians have investigated cannabinoids as a form of treatment for a variety of patient groups. Currently, there are hundreds of ongoing clinical trials worldwide.
