Flavonoids are one of many bioactive compounds found in the cannabis plant that are also found in regular plants/fruits and vegetables. They have an important part to play in the life cycle of a plant with a multitude of functions such uv filtration and protection, regulating plant development and determining the colour of their flowers/fruits.

A naturally occurring flavonoid called Quercetin found in citrus fruits, as well as in cannabis - has a wide range of beneficial properties not just exclusive to plants. Being Anti-inflammatory, anti-viral and antioxidant are just a few us humans can take advantage off.
