What are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in the Cannabis sativa plant. There are over 100 different cannabinoids found in cannabis. Of the many  different cannabinoids the most popular are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabinol (CBD). Each cannabinoid effects the body differently and may help in various ways. Some of the most common cannabinoids and there potential benefits are:

CBDA: Cannabidiolic acid, a major anti-inflammatory that works by inhibiting the COX-2 enzyme to enhance CBD’s natural effects.

CBDV: Cannabidivarin varies only slightly from CBD, with initial research suggesting it could be valuable in the treatment of conditions like epilepsy, once again enhancing the natural effects of CBD.

CBG: Cannabigerol is a powerful antibacterial compound that can inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells while promoting bone growth and interacting well with other major cannabinoids.

CBGA: Cannabigerolic Acid has similar effects to CBG, while acting as an even more potent anti-inflammatory.

CBC: Cannabichromene is proven to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and inhibit cell growth in tumor/cancer cells (much like CBG), but unlike other cannabinoids, CBC effects are mediated through non-cannabinoid receptor interactions.

CBN: Cannabinol offers a unique profile of effects when compared to CBD, while still offering proven benefits from pain relief to easing insomnia, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects that can seriously transform your life.

Taken alone, any one of these cannabinoids could likely have a similar life-changing effect to what you get from CBD isolate. But when they’re all combined, you get an unprecedented synergy that takes everything to the next level—with high-impact effects that you will notice right away.
