Phyto cannabinoids such as THC and CBD are cannabinoids that occur naturally in the cannabis plant. Endocannabinois (prefix “endo” means “within”) on the contrary are produced by our bodies (namely CB1 and CB2):
ANTI-INFLAMMATORY: When applied to skin, CBD interacts with these receptors to turn down the inflammatory response

The hemp plant naturally contains over 100 cannabinoids, and each one of them provide their own unique benefit. The most common cannabinoids found in the plant are CBD and THC (yes, the one that makes you high!), and in order to use them in different products the hemp plant has to come through an extraction process.
During the hemp extraction process, other compounds are also extracted, including terpenes and flavonoids, as well as non-desired components, as pesticides or heavy metals, so please be very careful on your sources, at P U M B B A we take this very seriously.
