To put it simply, cannabinoids are the active compounds in cannabis that interact with certain receptors in the human body and can have a wide range of physiological outcomes. Most animals and many plants (including chocolate!) manufacture their own endocannabinoids that are used as signaling messengers between cells. With well over 100 such compounds discovered in cannabis alone, the compounds have quite different outcomes on our brain chemistry and the way different people may feel after consuming them.
