Cannabinoids are a group of substances found in the Cannabis plant, which is the source of marijuana and hemp (1).

Over one hundred different cannabinoids have been identified in the Cannabis plant, and two are known for treating pain and a variety of symptoms and conditions today - tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive compound which produces a “high”, and cannabidiol (CBD) derived from hemp that does not lead to a “high” (1) (2).

CBD is often used to help reduce chronic inflammation and pain associated with diseases like arthritis, ease nausea, help with migraines and seizures, improve sleep, and reduce anxiety (3) (4).
