Cannabinoids (ex. THC and CBD) are the chemical compounds secreted by cannabis flowers that provide relief to an array of symptoms including pain, nausea, anxiety, and inflammation.
THC has strong psychoactive effects, meaning it makes a person ‘high’
CBD is thought to have an anti-psychoactive effect that controls or moderates the ‘high’ caused by the THC and anxiety.

Soil type
Time of day and season

Flavonoids are a class of plant secondary metabolites having a polyphenolic structure, widely found in fruits, vegetables and certain beverages.
