Gratitude and strong relationship with self are key ingredients to success.

So what are cannabinoids anyway?

Scientists have identified close to 500 phytochemicals in hemp plants. Hundreds of them are terpenoids.

Each cannabinoid has its own individual properties, which is creating excitement in the scientific community. Besides terpenoids and cannabinoids, hemp contains many other vitamins, minerals, phytosterols, pigments, proteins, enzymes, essential sugars, polyphenol antioxidants, flavonoids and essential fatty acids.

Terpenoids are the compounds that give fruits, flowers and herbs many of their desirable aromas, flavors and other special properties. Cannabinoids are a sub-class of terpenoids.

There are over 113 cannabinoids found in hemp and cannabis — the only place they are found. This is one of the many reasons hemp stands alone in the plant kingdom as a treasure chest of nutrition without equal.

While isolated cannabinoids have their own characteristic properties, the different compounds have synergistic effects when whole symphonies of phytonutrients are consumed together.

Synergy means that the combined effect is greater than the sum of the individual parts. Another way of thinking of this is 1+1. You know that 1+1 = 2. When hemp phytonutrients are consumed together, as they naturally occur in the plant, the nutritional benefits multiply, and it’s as if 1+1now equals 3, or 4 or more!
