What are Cannabinoids? Effects of CBN CBD

At least 113 different cannabinoids have been isolated from the Cannabis plant to date and more are being discovered. The best and most studied cannabinoids are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD) and cannabinol (CBN). Cannabinoids are in many super-foods including.

CBD | Cannabigerol

Is one of the many cannabinoid compounds found in cannabis.  There are more than 120 cannabinoids found in the Cannabis plant.  CBG is the building block of CBD and THC.  CBG is converted in THC and CBD as the cannabis plant matures.  As the cannabis plant matures and is dried there is typically less than 1% CBG in the finished dried product.  There is limited research on the medicinal benefits that isolated CBG has on the human body.  Some research suggests that CBG has a rejuvenation effect of cells and can even slow tumor growths.

CBN | Cannabinol

Cannabinol (CBN) is the third most researched cannabinoid found in cannabis. It is mildly psychoactive in which it has sedative effects. It is mostly found in cannabis that has aged or low quality cannabis and hash from resins of outdoor grown cannabis that has aged. The reason for this phenomenon is CBN comes from the breakdown and degrading of THCA, from exposure to ultraviolet light, air, or heat. The THCA converts to CBNA, the CBN is then formed from the CBNA in the decarboxylation process.

CBDA | Cannabidiolic Acid

Cannabidiolic acid (CBDA) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid and the acidic precursor to CBD.  CBDA is converted to CBD through the decarboxylation process, this process occurs when CBDA is exposed to heat or light.  CBDA does not bind directly with the CB1 and CB2 receptors.  It is shown to interact with the ECS as an inhibitor to the COX-2 enzyme.  Because of this CBDA reduces inflammatory activity throughout the body. CBDA is also shown to raise the serotonin producing 5-HT receptor.  This interaction is thought to make CBDA a primary contributor to the anti Cancer effects of cannabis.

CBC | Cannabichromene

Cannabichromene (CBC) another Cannabinoid in Herbal World Healers, Herbal Hemp tinctures.  Similar to CBD, CBC is non-psychoactive, CBC  binds with receptors in the body, such as the vanilloid receptor 1 (TRPV1) and transient receptor ankyrin 1 (TRPA1), both of which are linked to the perception of pain.  When CBC activates these receptors, increased levels of the body’s natural endocannabinoids are released.  CBC contributes largely to the entourage effect when mixed with other cannabinoids.  CBC shows promising research that it can shrink tumor growth specifically in breast tissue.  CBC is being researched as chemopreventive agent, although more research is required.  CBC is seen currently as the second most effective cancer fighting cannabinoid behind THC, making it a much more sought after agent because it is non-psychoactive unlike THC.  Studies have show that in conjunction with CBD, CBC has Cancer fighting, pain and inflammation reduction, anti acne and anti-depression effects.  It has also been shown to support healthy brain function by preventing oxidative stress.  And its positive effects on neural stem progenitor cells, these cells are essential to healthy brain function.

MCT Oil | Medium Chain Triglycerides

MCT Oil is short for Medium Chain Triglycerides.  MCT oil is odorless and colorless.  It is usually derived from coconuts.  MCT oil has been shown to provide quick energy and support brain function.  Your liver converts the fat from MCT into ketones.
