What is a flavonoid?

"Flavonoids are common chemical compounds that fulfill many biological functions across the plant kingdom. Flavonoids are the primary component responsible for flower coloration, but can also serve functions such as UV filtration and other physiological regulation.

Certain flavonoids have been found to provide health benefits, especially in conjunction with the other terpenoids and cannabinoids that are produced by cannabis plants.

Here is a list of some of the flavonoids commonly found in cannabis plants:

  • Apigenin: parsley, celery, chamomile tea, cannabis
  • Chrysoeriol: Arteraceae family
  • Quercetin: capers, onions

There is still a need for more science involving cannabinoids and flavonoids working together. Still, flavonoids are recognized independently as one of the largest nutrient families produced by plant life."
