The human body naturally produces certain substances called endocannabinoids that play a part in a wide variety of functions including memory, appetite, energy, stress response, immune function, the nervous system, pain sensory, and sleep. The cannabis plant naturally produces a set of chemicals called cannabinoids that mimic the effects of the substances our bodies create. To date over 80 cannabinoids have been identified in cannabis, and the most commonly known are THC and CBD. Though each cannabinoid creates a specific reaction in people it’s speculated that they work best in combination with each other creating an “Entourage Effect”.
