Cannabinoids are a class of active and diverse chemical compounds that bind to cannabinoid receptors in cells and alter neurotransmitter releases in the brain. There are at least 113 different cannabinoids isolated from the cannabis plant. The most notable are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis, and cannabidiol (CBD), which can account for up to 40 percent of extracts.
