The Importance of Cannabinoids in Cannabis

Understanding Cannabinoids

Oct 1, 2013

Metabolites are typically small molecules produced by biological organisms that have various functions, including energy production, structure, signalling, catalytic activity, defence, as well as interactions with other organisms.

Plants make literally thousands of different metabolites which can be grouped and classified according to their structure and/or function. The Cannabis plant produces a unique group of metabolic compounds collectively referred to as “cannabinoids”.

There are approximately 60 identified cannabinoid metabolites and different strains of Cannabis have significantly different cannabinoid profiles. The primary active cannabinoids each have varying physiological effects and different combinations may result in synergistic and/or antagonistic effects.

The medical properties of the primary cannabinoids on human health have been studied and evidence indicates they may be useful for alleviation of the symptoms/pain associated with injuries, Arthritis, bursitis, Migraines, Multiple sclerosis, Hepatitis C, Fibromyalgia, Nausea, appetite disorder (anorexia, bulimia)  HIV/AIDS, Crohn’s, muscular dystrophy, epilepsy, Parkinson’s, asthma, emphysema glaucoma and other intra-ocular disorders, Skin diseases (pruritis, psoriasis), muscle spasms, paralyzation (Paraplegia and quadriplegia),  insomnia and other sleep disorders.

While more evidence is required in order to demonstrate whether these compounds are effective against cancers, Cannabis has been effectively used to treat the side of current cancer treatments.

Finding the right Cannabis medicine means determining the proper balance of cannabinoids that is effective against each persons specific condition.
