Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids are small organic molecules which bind to specialized receptors on cells in the body and brain. Several different cannabinoids have been identified, many of which are believed to have distinct medicinal effects. Knowing the cannabinoid profile of medicinal cannabis products can therefore aid patients and health care providers in choosing products and dosages most likely to produce the desired medicinal benefits.
