Potential benefits of common cannabinoids


Thc or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the most recognized ingredient in cannabis. It is best known for causing the high but it also causes the most controversy surrounding its medical use. Research and studies show results that THC helps with PTSD, cancer, chemotherapy, anxiety, Crohn’s disease and more.


Over the past few years CBD or cannabidiol has made its way to the forefront of the cannabis industry. CBD can either be extracted from industrial hemp plants or medical marijuana. When isolated, CBD on its own provides the user with similar effects to THC, but without the psychoactive feeling. Constant studies and quality research is hard to come by on the topic of CBD but patients say they feel relief of; pain, sleep, cancer, dementia and more.


Cannabinol, or CBN, is one of the cannabinoids found in cannabis. Studies have shown it provides a variety of therapeutic benefits, most notably serving as a sleep aid. Steel Hill claims that CBN is the most potent sedative of all the cannabinoids. In a study on mice, CBN shows to stimulate the consumer’s appetite. As THC degenerates it turns into CBN, fresh flower will have little amounts of CBN.


Cannabichromene in combination with THC, CBD and CBN, is the most abundant naturally occurring cannabinoid. CBC is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. Research shows that CBC provides the user with anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, fights against cancer, depression and more.


CBG is short for cannabigerol. Minimal amounts of research and studies have been conducted on this cannabinoid. Some research shows that CBG provides similar anti-inflammatory and antioxidant as CBD.
