Phytocannabinoids, endocannabinoids and terpenes - The Healthy Perspective - December 2019
In continuing our discussion of hemp, cannabis, CBD and other topics related to the endocannabinoid system, I focus this session on endo- and phytocannabinoids and what they do. I talk about the two principle phytocannabinoids, THC and CBD as well as many minor cannabinoids. I discuss the entourage effect, which relates to the idea of synergistic compounds in plants.
I also talk about terpenes in cannabis and other plants with essential oils and how they act synergistically with the endocannabinoid system. beginning with B-Caryophyllene. I discuss how aromatherapy and other herbs can work synergistically with cannabis and the endocannabinoid system. I end with my hope that we can make cannabis a gateway herb.
