Cannabis is a plant with an impressive chemical profile. Pharmacological ingredients, that are therapeutically interesting, are cannabinoids and terpenes. Cannabinoids are found in the fierce resin that is produced by glandular structures that are called trichomes. The most plentiful phyto-cannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG), cannabichromene (CBC) and cannabinol (CBN).
They exist in the plant in the form of carboxyl acids.
