Cannabinoids, or phytocannabinoids, are a group of active chemical compounds naturally found in cannabis and a wide variety of other plants.
Hemp possesses over 100 different cannabinoids, each of which comes with a unique set of benefits and effects. The most commonly mentioned are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).
Here at Upstream Organics we process hemp, which is a form of cannabis that is high in CBD content and contains only trace amounts of THC (0.3% or less).
