Cannabidiol (CBD) has been studied quite a bit at the NIH, However, pre-clinical research (including both cell culture and animal models) has shown CBD to have a range of effects that may be therapeutically useful, including anti-seizure, antioxidant, neuroprotective, anti-inflammatory, analgesic, anti-tumor, anti-psychotic, and anti-anxiety properties.
Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) – Both THC & CBD work on different cannabinoid receptors throughout our bodies to provide relief from pain and inflammation. When working in conjunction with the ECS, a full spectrum of cannabinoids has the ability to compound their effects, which is known as the Entourage Effect. When consumed, THC and CBD molecules bind to the body’s cannabinoid receptors to help regulate pain and inflammation as well as other functions.
Cannabigerol (CBG) is literally the parent of all other cannabinoids. It starts as a stem cell molecule, then as the cannabis plant is exposed to light and heat, it converts CBG into cannabinoids like THC and CBD. CBG, much like CBD, is non-psychoactive but has many other benefits like improving your mood. It acts as a GABA reuptake inhibitor to enhance your psychological health and well-being. CBG helps with: Managing psoriasis, Reducing inflammation and muscle spasms, Fighting MRSA superbugs,Treating symptoms of depression.
Cannibinol (CBN) interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system, and it can affect the function of many hormones and neurotransmitters, which in turn influence mood, energy, cognition and focus, appetite, immune function, and pain. Chemically similar to CBD, CBN has several of the same effects in the body, including relieving pain, reducing inflammation, and improving sleep.
