Within the biological structure of the cannabis plant there are a range of fascinating compounds called cannabinoids, over 114 have been discovered so far with new cannabinoids being discovered on a regular basis. Each individual cannabinoid possesses its own profile that serves a distinct purpose with the most recognised cannabinoid, THC (Δ9-Tetrahydrocannabinol) providing the psychoactive effect associated with traditional cannabis use. This particular well known cannabinoid is currently illegal in the UK, whether it be for recreational or medicinal use.
We work with a range of non-psychotropic legal cannabinoids such as Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG) and Cannabidivarin (CBDV), enabling us to create a world renowned natural formula without any of the negative psychoactive effects.
Each cannabinoid interacts with a network of receptor cells known as the endocannabinoid system which is a part of all humans and mammals. The main receptors known as CB1 and CB2 receptors operate in the central and peripheral nervous systems respectively. The cannabinoids we work with (CBD, CBDV & CBG) do not induce any negative mind-altering effects as they do not interact with the same neurological pathways as THC.
