The Different Types of Cannabinoids

There are well over one hundred identified cannabinoids found inside the hemp plant. However, if you are new to buying CBD, you may be wondering exactly how much, or even which CBD product you should use.

The first thing to understand is that different ailments call for different cannabinoids. And while many of the main ones on the market do treat something all together, other cannabinoids are scientifically supported to relieve something more than the other.

For example, CBD, or cannabidiol, is one of the main cannabinoids found in the hemp plant and is more medically supported to suppress muscle spasms. We will review what each of the main cannabinoids found in Full Spectrum CBD do.

Remember that CBD isolates will have CBD and won’t benefit from the other cannabinoids. Full Spectrum CBD will benefit from the entourage effect and give support for many more ailments. Plenty of these cannabinoids listed can benefit more than what is listed.
