Cannabinoids, Terpenoids, and ALSO flavonoids

I wonder if we should be spending as much time on flavonoids as we do on terpenes (including cannabinoids)?

There is little doubt that they play a powerful effect. Just as the minor cannabinoids tend to be overlooked by much of the general & scientific cultures… flavonoids are also largely passed-over.

This study, for example, indicates that some of the components of dark chocolate reduce the body’s production of the stress hormone, cortisol (not surprising to most who have every consumed chocolate, but… did you know that those components are also found all over nature, including inside cannabis?!)

I’ll start adding flavonoids to the list of info to start sharing!
