Frequently asked questions:+ What are cannabinoids and terpenes?
The cannabis plant contains 480 identified chemicals. Of these, the compounds most of interest to scientists and medical professionals are cannabinoids and terpenes.Cannabinoids (or, more specifically, phytocannabinoids) are chemicals found in cannabis that bond with the body’s G-protein coupled receptors (GPCR), CB1 and CB2, which are found in the central and peripheral neurons, including the immune system. Sixty-six cannabinoids have been identified in the cannabis plant.
+ What are endocannibinoids?
Terpenes are volatile unsaturated hydrocarbons that combine to create the distinct odors and flavors of many plants. Beyond their effects on our taste buds and sense of smell, terpenes have significant medical efficacy in humans. There are 120 known terpenes in the cannabis plant.
Our bodies produce a range of endogenous cannabinoids (the endocannabinoids) that are secreted from neural, epithelial, and immune tissues. The naturally produced endocannabinoids regulate a vast range of physiological processes, including neural function, appetite control, mood, fertility, cell growth and differentiation, and immunity.
+ What is the “Entourage Effect” & why is it significant?
Cannabinoids, the active constituents of the plants Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica, have been used for centuries as medicinal agents.
Scientists have discovered more than 480 chemicals in the cannabis plant. Although we don’t know what all of them do yet, we do know this much: combinations of these chemicals work together to offer more healing power than any one compound alone. This is called “the entourage effect.

”CNN’s Emmy award winning chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, recently brought a lot of attention to the entourage effect. “Unlike other drugs that may work well as single compounds, synthesized in a lab, cannabis may offer its most profound benefit as a whole plant, if we let the entourage effect flower,” he explains.
