Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid similar to CBD, though this compound interacts with your body through very different mechanisms than CBD. Initial research has indicated that CBG acts as an agonist of the CB1 and CB2 receptors without causing any intoxicating effects. CBG may also act as a GABA reuptake inhibitor. This means that CBG may have a relationship with both neuropathic pain and inflammatory pain. The main benefits attained through use of CBG include:

Cannabichromene (CBC) is “newer” to the cannabinoid scene as far as research is concerned, but has shown great potential as a medical supplement thus far. While its effects feel very similar to CBD when ingested, the chemical structure of the CBC is unique and offers it the capability to affect the body in a different way than CBD. So far, research has linked CBC with the following medical benefits:

While CBD has grown to be the most popular non-intoxicating cannabinoid in recent years, there are also several similar compounds which exist that have shown to benefit the human body as well.

CBG

A mature cannabis plant contains hundreds of different compounds which can be further divided into categories of either flavonoids, terpenes, or cannabinoids, with each of these having different properties and effects on the human body. Two of the most prevalent compounds in medical marijuana are THC and CBD, with THC causing the intoxicating “high” that many people attribute to marijuana use.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. It does not cause an intoxicating “high” like THC does, and according to the World Health Organization, it “exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential. To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” Several benefits of CBD use include:

CBN

Cannabinol (CBN) is currently only attainable by deriving it from CBD through a chemical conversion. While more structurally similar to THC than CBD once it reaches its final form, CBN lacks the psychoactive effects of THC which could allow more patients to utilize it without fear of intoxication or impairment. Some of the potential benefits of CBN include:

Cannabis that contains higher levels of Delta-9 THC is known as marijuana, while cannabis with trace amounts of it is identified as hemp. While THC does get users high, its reported wide range of health benefits include the simple ease of anxiety to major relief for cancer and AIDS patients. Currently, marijuana is legal for recreational use in 17 U.S. states and for medical use in 36.

Cannabinoids are simply the compounds found in cannabis. There is a huge range of estimates as to how many cannabinoids are in cannabis, since most exist at such low levels that scientists have historically had difficulty detecting them. Most estimates put the number of cannabinoids at somewhere over hundred, including some that state there are more than 140. With most still unknown, the main focus over the years has been on tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and CBD.

What exactly are cannabinoids?

By far the most researched and debated cannabinoid is tetrahydrocannabinol, especially in the chemical compound form of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. The debate, of course, centers on the fact that THC is the principal reason marijuana gets people intoxicated, i.e. “high.”

Delta-8 THC has become trendy in the past year, given its availability in hemp, which makes it possibly legal in states where recreational marijuana is illicit. It reportedly offers a relaxing effect similar to its Delta-9 counterpart, though without as much of the “high” effect that some users find too intense. Meanwhile, Delta-10 THC operates on the opposite side, giving a mild “high” and less of the relaxing effects. Consumers may have also come across THCV, which has the intoxicating effect of Delta-9 in larger doses, but its limited quantities in cannabis plants makes it less attractive from a seller’s standpoint.
