Hello, I'm Cannabinoid
A cannabinoid is one of a class of diverse chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid receptors in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain. Ligands for these receptor proteins include the endocannabinoids (produced naturally in the body by animals), the phytocannabinoids (found in cannabis and some other plants), and synthetic cannabinoids (manufactured artificially). The most notable cannabinoid is the phytocannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD) is another major constituent of the plant. There are at least 113 different cannabinoids isolated from cannabis, exhibiting varied effects.
Hello, I'm A Terpenoid
Plant terpenoids are used extensively for their aromatic qualities and play a role in traditional herbal remedies. Terpenoids contribute to the scent of eucalyptus, the flavors of cinnamon, cloves, and ginger, the yellow color in sunflowers, and the red color in tomatoes.
Well-known terpenoids include citral, menthol, camphor, salvinorin A in the plant Salvia divinorum, the cannabinoids found in cannabis, ginkgolide and bilobalide found in Ginkgo biloba, and the curcuminoids found in turmeric and mustard seed.

Hello, I'm A Toxin/Carcinogen
Toxins and Carcinogens in Cannabis can cause serious health issues. It’s imperative for cannabis to contain as minimal amount of toxins, pesticides, and other harmful components. Carcinogens like tar are created during the intake methods involving combustion, and benzene toxins at high heat intake methods. Please be careful when smoking tobacco related products with your cannabis (common form is “blunts”) as these can increase the chance of toxin and carcinogenic intake.
