The most widely known cannabinoid is Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC was first ‘discovered’ in 1964 by Israeli scientists Prof. Raphael Mechoulam and Dr. Yechiel Gaoni at the Weizmann Institute of Science. I recently came across a fantastic documentary about Raphael Mechoulam and how he discovered THC. Below is more information about the video, as well as the embedded video from YouTube:

“The Scientist” is a documentary that traces the story of Nobel price nominee Dr Mechoulam from his early days……as a child of the Holocaust in Bulgaria, through his immigration to Israel, and his career as the chief investigator into the chemistry and biology of the world’s most misunderstood plant. Dr. Mechoulam ascertained that THC interacts with the largest receptor system in the human body, the endocannabinoid system (ECS).
