Inside the cannabis plant there are powerful chemical compounds called cannabinoids. There are over 80 cannabinoids known to exist, the most common of which are THC, CBD and CBN. We know that humans have been using cannabis for thousands of years because our neurobiology evolved at this time to include receptors for cannabis through the body's endocannabinoid system. Just like a plug fits into an outlet to produce electricity, cannabinoids fit into our receptors to alleviate physical symptoms as well as stimulate creative and psychosocial expansion. Many alchemists believe that cannabinoids activate the body's flow of energy, enabling us to access new ideas that aid in connection, creation and growth as individuals.
