Cannabinoids are a group of chemical compounds present in cannabis that affect the body and mind through their interaction with special receptors in the brain and nervous system. The human body has cellular receptors that bind with the active components in cannabis. There are over 100 cannabinoids in cannabis. Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds found in the Cannabis plant. The two primary cannabinoids contained in Cannabis are cannabidiol, or CBD, and ∆9-tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Cannabinoids found in cannabis and ingested are called phytocannabinoids and scientists have discovered cannabinoids produced within the body called endocannabinoids. Several doctors found the first endocannabinoid called anandamide in 1992.

Though there is significant debate about the existence of the subspecies of cannabis, Cure views strains in five major divisions.
Sativa – originates from tropical/equatorial regions where the warm climate where the plant grows tall, reaching toward the sun
Sativa Effects – uplifting and energetic, cerebral high, vibrant flavors, appetite modifier, enhance creativity, relive stress, day-time use
Hybrid – genetic combinations of Sativa and Indica strains with varying percentages of each with a blend of Sativa and Indica effects. Most strains available today are hybrids due to decades of cross-breeding to create strains with more desirable effects, appealing terpene profiles, and disease and pest resistance
Indica – originates from mountainous and higher elevation regions where the plant evolved to be shorter and thick to protect itself from harsh elements and wide temperature variation
Indica Effects – calming, body high, sedative, earth flavors, anxiety reduction, causes drowsiness, relieves pain, night-time use.

THC – The most well-known cannabinoid and the most psychoactive. THC has the ability to alter behavior, mood and time perception, and consciousness. It is responsible for the euphoric feeling some people consider as being “high”
THCV – Is a psychoactive cannabinoid that may help treat diabetes and is being investigated as an anti-obesity medicine
CBD – Studies have shown this non-psychoactive cannabinoid to have anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-nausea, blood pressure lowering, pain reduction properties, among other potential benefits
CBN – Somewhat psychoactive cannabinoid (~10% activity of THC). CBN occurs when THC is exposed to light and/or heat. It is known to cause drowsiness and reduce spasms
CBG – Is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that may have the ability to counteract and prevent tumor formation
CBC – A cannabinoid that has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and potential promising antibiotic properties
Cannabis-infused topicals are a relatively new mode of medicating with cannabis. Topicals enable many patients the accessibility, safety, and efficacy of a proven method of using medication. Topicals are typically cannabis-infused lotions, balms, and oils that are absorbed through the skin for localized relief of pain, soreness, and inflammation. Often times these are non-psychoactive and are chosen by patients who want the therapeutic benefits of marijuana without orally consuming the medication.
