The word “cannabibens” does not exist on a Safari search. The correct word is cannabinoid. Apparently, you borrowed this incorrect term from Cynthia Pannucci in a blog that appears in Psychology Today. Pannucci should be credited with this original content quote …even if incorrect. It is not a quote that should be credited to Chatterjee.

As the author of a book that details the use of topical and transdermal cannabinoids for back pain I feel it necessary to correct this misinformation that perpetuates use of a non existent term. According to wikipedia…”a cannabinoid is one of a class of diverse chemical compounds that acts on cannabinoid receptors, AKA the endocannbinoid system in cells that alter neurotransmitter release in the brain.

That being said, this is a very deep and insighful writing.
