What are cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds produced by cannabis plants. The most well known cannabinoid is called THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), this is responsible for the pleasant and relaxing psychoactive high experienced after consuming cannabis. In addition to THC there are around 100 other different cannabinoids.

Dutch Passion offers cannabis seeds which have been bred for a high cannabinoid profile. That may mean a high THC content, a high CBD content or perhaps both! You can also buy Dutch Passion cannabis seeds which will grow into plants rich in other cannabinoids such as THCV, CBG and CBDV.
How many cannabinoids can be found in cannabis?
Opinions vary, but it is thought that there are around 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis. Not all are psychoactive and most remain largely unstudied.
How does the cannabinoid entourage effect work?
The proposed cannabis entourage effect is thought to be a mechanism where different cannabinoids can amplify the effects of each other. With the cannabis entourage effect, the combined synergistic effects are thought to be greater than the sum of the individual effects.
What are the main factors influencing the development of cannabinoids?
Cannabinoids are formed in the cannabis plant. The strain genetics (along with environmental conditions) determine the final cannabinoids in your harvest. With professional selective breeding, new cannabis strains rich in novel cannabinoids are slowly being introduced.
How long do cannabinoids stay in your system?
The heaviest cannabis users could return a positive urine test up to 3 months after use. Light cannabis users might give positive urine tests for just 2-7 days after use. In saliva, THC can be detected up to a week after use.
How to interpret THC, CBD and other cannabinoids test levels?
Any cannabis strain with over 10% THC is regarded as a high THC variety with a powerful psychoactive effect. A CBD rich strain is one with over 4% of CBD in the dried buds. Not every grower likes cannabis strains with the highest THC levels, many prefer THC levels in the range 10-15%. Plenty of other growers prefer cannabis strains with some CBD to complement the THC.
