We want to provide some insight on some of the other elements of our CBD products. Phytocannabinoids are cannabinoids that occur naturally in the cannabis plant. This resin is also rich in terpenes, which are responsible for the characteristic smell of the cannabis plant.
Phytocannabinoids are understood as any plant-derived natural product capable of either directly interacting with cannabinoid receptors or sharing chemical likeness with cannabinoids, or both. Phytocannabinoids are a type of aromatic compound found nearly exclusively in Cannabis Sativa. There are 113 known phytocannabinoids within the cannabis plant, some have been found more useful than others. When testing our tinctures, we keep a close eye on the levels of key component cannabinoids preferred for their medical benefits.
Cannabigerol CBG –
The non-acidic form of this molecule is essentially the parent from which all other cannabinoids are rendered. CBG works side by side with both the CB1 and CB2 receptors to provide a range of benefits in the extents of antibiotics. Cannabigerol is being studied for the ways it slows bacterial growth and reduces inflammation.
Cannabidinol CBN –
Cannabidinol can be understood as a weaker version of THC. When THC components found in the cannabis plant age, they break down. This leads to the formation of a less potent cannabinoid called CBN. It’s about 25% as effective as THC, which makes it a mild chemical. It is desired as a sleep aid and provides optimal results when taken with other cannabinoids. Unlike CBD, which is entirely non-psychoactive, CBN in larger doses can produce mild psychoactive reactions.
