Cannabis is a naturally occurring, highly adaptable and objectively impressive plant. It is made up of 80 – 130 unique chemical compounds called cannabinoids, with delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) being the most well-known. These chemical compounds interact with the body's natural chemistry to help ease the symptoms of certain illnesses and disorders.
Each plant strain has a unique chemical composition which in turn will yield a specific result when used as a medicine. Moreover, cannabinoids can be extracted and administrated as isolates or formulated with a specific terpene profile to treat specific conditions.
The efficacy of the plant comes from the unique ability to interact with the human Endocannabinoid System (ESC), a network of receptors, enzymes and naturally occurring endocannabinoids that regulate and balance many human processes, including immune response, communication between cells, appetite and metabolism, memory, and more.
