These two substances are the most popular known cannabinoids which form a group of chemical compounds that are naturally produced only by cannabis plants. Both CBD and THC exist in the crystalline resinous trichomes that cover the mature cannabis flower, and both of them are the cannabinoids that we find most abundantly in marijuana and Industrial hemp. But each cannabis plant and strain produces different amounts of the compounds. They share the same chemical formula – with the only difference that their atoms are arranged in a variety of ways – but they have widely different effects on our body because they interact with our endocannabinoid system differently.
Both compounds have an impressive list of ways that they support the human body.
