Cannabinoids are the many compounds that make up the cannabis plant, and THC is the most well-known. CBD has already earned its recognition for reducing seizures in those suffering from Epilepsy. It also reduces anxiety, serves as a sleep aid, and so much more. However, CBD is not the only other Cannabinoid worth recognition. The “Carlini et al” study was a double-blind study found that cannabis with equal or higher levels of CBD and CBN to THC induced effects two to four times greater than expected from THC content alone.
CBN is short for Cannabinol. It does not produce psychotropic effects in the body and usually only occurs in trace amounts in the cannabis plant. It has been found to be the most sedating of the cannabinoids and is being studied for its help with insomnia, glaucoma, and pain. CBG is another Cannabinoid that has been found to stimulate brain cell and bone growth. Cannabigerol is being studied for its effects with insomnia, as well. Cannabichromene, or CBC, has been found to be 10 times for effective than CBD in treating stress and anxiety. It is also a strong anti-inflammatory.
As medical marijuana grows in recognition, our understanding of the various parts of the plant grows too. CBD oils and alternative intake methods are getting widespread. Another part of medical marijuana that’s garnering a lot of attention are these cannabinoids. Once consumed, cannabinoids are being shown to have these added health benefits. That is why it is important to research your CBD products and ask questions before purchasing!
