You’ve heard of THC, and probably of CBD as well.
But what are these, really? Technically, they are two (of over 100) exogenous phytocannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis plants that interact with the cannabinoid receptors located throughout our bodies when ingested. This activation of the ECS releases therapeutic and medicinal chemicals to the body, especially when these cannabinoids are paired together properly. Just think of THC and CBD as Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen, respectively. One is the star, the other more understated, but the interplay between them is what’s important. Now add the other key role players of the team (including terpenes and lesser known cannabinoids like CBN, CBC, and Δ9-THC) and you have a highly-effective ensemble capable of producing a broad spectrum of physiological benefits. Our job at Stigma Hemp Company is to leverage real science on inter-cannabinoid and inter-terpene relationships to create products with optimal terpene-cannabinoid ensemble profiles.
