Phytocannabinoids are similar to endocannabinoids, except their origin comes from a plant (in this case, industrial hemp) instead of a natural process in the body.

Cannabidiol, most commonly known as CBD, is a compound found in both cannabis and hemp plants. Other common cannabinoids include tetraydrocannibinol (THC), cannabigerol (CBG), and cannabinol (CBN). THC and CBD are the two most common and best-understood cannabinoids. Though they exist side-by-side, these compounds interact with the human body in their own unique way. Unlike its relative THC, CBD is not psychoactive and fundamentally works on the body in a different way.
