CANNABINOIDS? WHAT ARE THEY AND WHAT DO THEY DO?
CBD – (Cannabidiol) known for its anti-inflammatory properties and anxiety-relieving abilities. CBD helps aid the reduction of anxiety by interacting and helping boost anandamide levels in the body. Anandamide is a cannabinoid that is naturally produced within the human body. Today the therapeutic properties of CBD are being tested and confirmed by scientists and doctors around the world. A safe, non-addictive substance, CBD is one of more than a hundred phytocannabinoids,” which are unique to cannabis and endow the plant with its robust therapeutic profile.
CBN – (Cannabinol) cannabinol products have powerful sedative effects as a sedative. According to Steep Hill labs, Cannabinol is the most sedative known cannabinoid. They claim that 5mg of cannabinol is equal to 10mg of diazepam (valium) in terms of body relaxation.
CBG – (Cannabigerol) A non-psychoactive cannabinoid, CBG’s antibacterial effects can alter the overall effects of cannabis. CBG is known to kill or slow bacterial growth, reduce inflammation, (particularly in its acidic CBGA form,) inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells, and promote bone growth.
THC – (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is the compound in cannabis that is psychoactive and gives you the feeling of being high. However, THC’s chemical make-up, C₂₁H₃₀O₂, is very similar to its counterpart, CBD, which actually combats the effects of THC. Still, THC mimics the natural chemical anandamide (which is produced in the brain) in structure, altering the function in communication. So, instead of normal brain communication via neurons, the THC compound attaches to the neurons and changes the process.
