Cannabinoid

Cannabinoids are compounds uniquely found in cannabis plants, as well as compounds similar to those found in cannabis plants. Some cannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system. There are three general categories of cannabinoids:

  • Phytocannabinoids: Cannabinoids produced by plants.
  • Endogenous cannabinoids (endocannabinoids): Cannabinoids produced naturally by living animals, including humans, that interact with the body’s endogenous cannabinoid (endocannabinoid) system.
  • Synthetic cannabinoids: Cannabinoids produced by humans in a laboratory.
