What are cannabinoids? What’s the difference between endocannabinoids and phytocannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are a class of chemical compounds that acts on the vast array of receptors that make up the ECS. There are over 113 known cannabinoids that comprise the hemp plant. These plant-based, naturally occurring compounds – such as CBD, CBC, CBG, and CBN – are otherwise known as phytocannabinoids because they are plant-derived. Endocannabinoids are cannabinoids produced by the human body to interact with cannabinoid receptor sites. Both phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids regulate our endocannabinoid system (ECS), which is the body’s primary regulatory system.
