Cannabimimetics   -  Canna-what?!  Canna-bi-mi-met-ics  now 3 times fast

it's one of our favorite words!

Cannabimimetics are plants containing compounds that literally mimic classical cannabinoid biological activities that occur throughout our mammalian endocannabinoid system (ECS).  This is exciting!  It answers most of the 'why is it good for us?' questions we've had regarding the health and nutritional benefits and how and where and what they actually "do" inside our amazing machines.

Like cannabinoids, cannabimimetics are an important class of terpenes that are playing an increasingly significant role in our wellness., herbal and medicinal research. There is even a newly developed ECS Therapeutics Market that grew from cannabinoid compounds demands.  This market is set to flourish with the rapidly expanding sciences presenting new discoveries daily.  We are pleased to have found this 'evolutionary link',  Terpene science is in its infancy with unlimited possibilities. All endoteas essentials blends will be mastered from cannabimimetic and cannabinoid ingredients.

Below is our first gallery of current evidence based cannabimimetics.  Under each photograph is a list of the major cannabimimetic terpenes and only a few benefits.  More terpene health benefits and information are available in the Glossary below.


References are also listed below should your curiosity become aroused for further research.  We will update as new developments are made.  Enjoy, please. We are absolutely fascinated with cannabis and cannabimimetics!
