Cannabinoid Receptor 1
A G protein-coupled cannabinoid receptor that in humans is encoded by the CNR1 gene.CB1 receptors mediate physical and psychoactive effects of Cannabinoids.
Cannabinoid Receptor 2
CB2 receptors regulate inflammation and immune response throughout the immune and peripheral nervous systems including the gut, spleen, liver, heart, kidneys, bones, blood vessels, lymph cells, endocrine glands, and reproductive organs.
A group of receptors that make up a very complex regulatory system throughout the human brain, body, and central and peripheral nervous systems.

One of the at least 85 cannabinoids found in cannabis and the second only to THC when it comes to average volume. CBD is an antagonist to THC and is nonpsychoactive as it blocks the formation of 11-OH-THC and mitigates the psychoactive effects of THC. CBD has become popular for its therapeutic effects in autism, epilepsy, nerve problems, pain, inflammation, and anxiety.
THC is also the component in Cannabis leaf and flowering top that is responsible for the psychoactive effects, or the “high.” Also known as delta-9-tetracannabinol, it was first isolated in 1964 and Research has shown THC to be an effective medical treatment for a range of conditions including chronic pain, muscle spasticity, glaucoma, insomnia, low appetite, nausea anxiety. There is no lethal dose of the compound in its natural form.
Cannabinol (CBN) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in trace amounts from Cannabis leaf & flowering tops. CBN is mostly found in cannabis that is aged and stored, and is derived from the plant's main psychoactive chemical, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Cannabigerol is one of more than 114+ identified cannabinoid compounds found in the plant genus Cannabis. Cannabigerol is the decarboxylated form of cannabigerolic acid, the parent molecule from which other cannabinoids are synthesized. Cannabigerol is a minor constituent of cannabis.
A chronic progressive disease causing inflammation in the joints and resulting in painful deformity and immobility, especially in the fingers, wrists, feet, and ankles.
Degeneration of joint cartilage and the underlying bone, most common from middle age onward. It causes pain and stiffness, especially in the hip, knee, and thumb joints.

Fatty acids that contain more than one double bond in their backbone. This class includes many important compounds, such as essential fatty acids and those that give drying oils their characteristic property. PUFA includes omega-6 and omega-3.
Monosaturated Fatty Acid
Fatty acids that contain one double bond in their backbone. MUFA includes omega 9.
