The Complete List of Cannabinoids

As I continue to learn as much as I can about cannabis, I often find claims that there are over 100 known cannabinoids. While I did not doubt this was true because #CannabisIsAmazing, I could not find a simple, comprehensive list of all known cannabinoids on the internet anywhere! My curiosity finally provoked me to reach out to “the godfather of cannabinoid research”, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam.

I was exhilarated when I received a response the very same day from “the godfather” himself. Dr. Mechoulam pointed me to his colleague, Dr. Lumir Hanus for more information. Dr. Hanus was gracious enough to provide a document titled, “Phytocannabinoids: a unified critical inventory” and stated that today, there are 144 known cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant as well as about 50 cannabinoids found in other plants. To my knowledge, Israel is still the leader in cannabis research, so this is info taken from the proverbial horse’s mouth. Not only does it tell us how many known cannabinoids there are, but it also tells us that cannabinoids are found in other plants – not just cannabis as some information I have found leads us to believe. One such plant is Helichrysum umbraculigerum which actually contains CBD!

If you’d like to read my source of information for yourself, you can find it here. If you do check it out yourself, hold onto your hats. This is some pretty in-depth information.
