Cannabis plants contain hundreds of organic substances. Their spectrum is so wide that even today they are not completely known. The best-known substances in cannabis so far include cannabinoids, cannabinoid acids, terpenes, flavonoids, minerals, vitamins, trace elements and essential fatty acids.

Cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids, are most commonly found in cannabis plants. To date, we know more than 100 different phytocannabinoids, most of which are found in hemp only in very low amounts - some not even 1% of the content. However, the most popular are the cannabinoids CBD (non-psychoactive and legal) and THC (psychoactive and restricted by law), which are also the most strongly represented in cannabis, usually in the order of tens of percent. CBG (cannabigerol), CBC (cannabichromene) and CBN (cannabinol) are also becoming known to experts and the public.

In plants, you can also find aromatic terpenes, which also demonstrate possible positive abilities in the treatment, especially of psychological and health complications. Aromatherapy and Ayurveda have used the power of essential oils for centuries. In addition, according to experts and their research, terpenes can enhance the effect of cannabinoids themselves. When choosing products, it is best to go for those that contain a full-spectrum of active substances from cannabis.
