Frequently Asked Questions
What are Cannabinoids?
Scientists have identified close to 500 phytochemicals in hemp plants. Hundreds of them are terpenoids.
Each cannabinoid has its own individual properties, which is creating excitement in the scientific community. Besides terpenoids and cannabinoids, hemp contains many other vitamins, minerals, phytosterols, pigments, proteins, enzymes, essential sugars, polyphenol antioxidants, flavonoids and essential fatty acids. Hemp CBD has also been shown to influence the production of anandamide through the endocannabinoid system–the “bliss molecule”!
While isolated cannabinoids have their own characteristic properties, the different compounds have synergistic effects when the whole symphony of phytonutrients are consumed together. Synergy means that the combined effect is greater than the sum of the individual parts.
