Phytocannabinoids are naturally occurring chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa). These compounds are responsible for many of the therapeutic and psychoactive effects associated with cannabis consumption. Over 100 different phytocannabinoids have been identified in cannabis, with the most well-known and studied being tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD).

Phytocannabinoids interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the bodies of humans and other mammals. The ECS plays a crucial role in regulating various physiological processes, including mood, pain sensation, appetite, memory, and immune response.
