The hemp plant contains more than 100 naturally occurring compounds or cannabinoids. Though cannabidiol (CBD) is the most abundant cannabinoid found in hemp and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the most abundant cannabinoid found in marijuana, the more rare cannabinoids - CBC, CBG and CBN have recently been making headlines for their unique potential to help with issues like depression, chronic pain and inflammation, as well as sleeplessness.

The color blocks above list some of the common issues that may be helped by specific cannabinoids.  Although more research is needed, studies by Forbes, Harvard Medicine and other scientific researchers have shown the potential of these extracts.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

Cannabidiol or CBD is one of more than 100 naturally occurring chemicals found in Cannabis Sativa, classified as cannabinoids. CBD is the most abundant cannabinoid found in hemp and unlike the well known cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD will not cause you to feel high or intoxicated. This makes it an ideal choice for anyone seeking the therapeutic benefits of cannabis, without the high.

 

When applied topically or ingested, CBD interacts with neuroreceptors in your body's endocannabinoid system, which helps regulate pain, movement, mood, sleep, appetite and more. 

Cannabichromene (CBC)

Cannabichromene or CBC is the third most abundant cannabinoid found in cannabis. Scientific studies find that CBC has properties that encourage the human brain to grow by increasing the viability of developing brain cells in a process known as neurogenesis. This process involves the development of the cells responsible for memory and learning.

 

CBC has also shown very strong potential for providing therapeutic benefits for pain, inflammation, mood, and may be up to 10x more effective in the management of anxiety, depression and chronic pain as CBD alone.  

Cannabigerol (CBG)

Cannabigerol (CBG) is sometimes called "the mother of all cannabinoids" as it is the precursor of both CBD and THC.  CBG is another non-intoxicating product of the hemp plant that works by binding to receptors in the brain and the body where it’s thought to strengthen the function of anandamide - a neurotransmitter that plays a role in enhancing pleasure and motivation, regulating appetite and sleep, and alleviating pain.

Cannabinol (CBN)

Often called "the sleepy cannabinoid" cannabinol or CBN is best known for its sleep inducing qualities. Recent studies show that CBN is also neuroprotective and may have potential for reducing the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease.  CBN may also help manage anxiety and reduce inflammation and chronic pain.

CBN isn't new.  In fact it was discovered and isolated as a cannabinoid years before CBD. That being said, studies on the benefits of CBN are relatively few, but the potential for a wide range of therapeutic benefits are promising.

Although research is ongoing, studies have shown that CBD has potential to 

  • Promote homeostasis

  • Calm chronic pain

  • Reduce inflammation

  • Treat seizure disorders*

  • Help manage anxiety and/or depression

  • Improve sleep

  • Reduce symptoms of PTSD

  • Reduce symptoms of ALS

CBC studies are ongoing for its potential related to

  • Improving brain function

  • Managing symptoms of anxiety and depression

  • Inhibiting growth of new cancer cells

  • Reducing inflammation

  • Calming chronic pain

  • Suppressing oil producing glands to reduce acne

  • Anti-bacterial 

CBG is being researched for its potential related to:

  • Pain calming - especially pertaining to arthritis and/or injury

  • Reducing inflammation

  • Improving mood

  • Reducing symptoms of inflammatory bowel syndrome (IBS)

  • Relieving glaucoma by reducing intraocular pressure

  • Regulating appetite

  • Inhibiting growth of new cancer cells

CBN is being researched for it's potential related to:

  • Restoring restful sleep

  • Managing anxiety

  • Calming pain

  • Reducing inflammation

  • Reducing symptoms of Parkinson's Disease

*CBD Epilepsy Drug Approved by the FDA

CBD oil has been studied for its potential role in calming the symptoms of many of the health issues commonly experienced by many, including chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety and insomnia.  Although CBD has not been approved by the FDA for general use, the CBD based drug Epidiolex, was got FDA approval for the treatment of  certain seizure disorders in 2019.  Prior to this approval, CBD had been proven to work by reducing the number of seizures and lessening the severity of seizures in children and adolescents.

How does CBD work?

There's no way to explain how CBD works in the human body without first explaining the Endocannabinoid System (ECS), which is perhaps the most important physiological system involved in establishing and maintaining human health.  A fairly recent scientific discovery, the ECS was first discovered in the 1990s by researchers who were studying a series of plant-like molecules produced by the human body.  Aptly named for the plant involved in its discovery, the ECS plays a key role in balancing many important functions, and endocannibinoids are some of the body's most widespread and versatile molecules.     

Endocannabinoid_System.jpg

All cannabinoids, including CBD produce effects in the body by attaching to certain receptors that are present throughout the body, known as the cannabinoid system.  Most of these receptors are in the brain and CB1 receptors in the brain deal with coordination, movement, pain, emotion, mood, thinking, appetite and memory, among other functions.  Extensive studies show that CBD readily attaches to these receptors and may have a beneficial effect in improving the efficiency of the human body. 

CBD is not just a fad

Although Cannabidiol (CBD) has gained popularity in recent years, it's was discovered in 1940 and has been touted as a natural remedy for pain, inflammation, anxiety and many other conditions.  CBD is one of over 100 naturally occurring cannabinoids found in the hemp plant (Cannabis Sativa), and makes up about 40% of the plant's extract.

Will CBD get you high?

Unlike the well known cannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD derived from hemp does not cause any intoxicating effects.  The World Health Organization reports that CBD exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential.  This makes it the perfect choice for anyone seeking the medicinal benefits of cannabis, without the "high". Please note: small amounts of THC may cause a false positive result on a drug test.
