Since the curious discovery of an Israeli professor named Raphael Mechoulam in 1964, who first discovered the component that makes people gravitate towards cannabis, more than 120 cannabinoids have been discovered in this plant.

These molecules also known as cannabinoids are found in the sticky resin found in the parts known as cannabis flowers.

Cannabinoids bind to different receptors found in the brain. The research of Professor Mechoulam and his group of researchers came up with an interesting discovery: cannabis interacts with a system known as the endocannabinoid system that exists throughout the body and, incidentally, has an influence on pain and inflammation, temperature, temperature responses, memory, appetite, sexuality, vitality and others.

Paradoxically, although this discovery is more than 50 years old, scientific researchers are just learning about it and most medical schools lack courses to study this interaction.

In addition to the well-known CBD and THC, the following cannabinoids are currently under investigation:


Cannabigerolic Acid

Cannabidiolic Acid

Cannabigerovarinic Acid


Tetrahydrocannabivarinic acid.


Cannabidivarinic Acid


Cannabicromevarinic Acid



In each flower the plant has glands that store resin and also aromatic oils known as terpenes that give cannabis different tastes, smells and their effects. The science behind terpenes has also identified potential nutritional values within the range of plants where they can be found.

Cutting-edge products already combine terpenes from nature, for example in plants such as rosemary, lavender, lemon and pine trees. These plants have also been extensively studied and the results suggest that they may have beneficial effects when combined with each other.

How CBD works in the body

For some doctors, studying and understanding the endocannabinoid system is what has made humans more certain about what happens in the body when we consume cannabinoids. This has given important medical rigor that generates confidence in health professionals to prescribe products if the law allows them to do so.

It was in the early 1990’s when a researcher trying to understand how THC works in the head, came across this system that would change the history of the world. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) has the function of stabilizing our internal body environment, for example, body temperature, mood, memory, immune system, among others.

The SEC contains two types of CB1 and CB2 receptors that are spread in the brain and in the body. The word Endo whose etymology corresponds to “the body’s own” plus the sum of cannabinoids means that the body produces its own endocannabinoids that help balance everyday bodily functions. From the time we wake up until the time we go to bed.

When this system fails, either due to some accidental disease caused by age, stress and other conditions that may be environmental, the body stops producing the amount of endocannabinoids it needs to balance itself and be healthy.

The pain pill industry acts directly on the SEC, however, its effect is to mitigate for a few hours that pain but not really level this system. Cannabinoids offer a natural regulation and this is where a great nutritional promise opens up.

In other words, this is why we say that cannabis has medicinal properties.

When CBD or Cannabis in its various forms is ingested, it is integrated into the endocannabinoid system.
