CBD and Cannabinoids, Part 1 —

By now, you’ve probably heard of CBD and its wonderful positive effects on our bodies. CBD is short for “cannabidiol” which is simply a non-psychoactive constituent of the cannabis plant family. Cannabidiol is one of about 113 known cannabinoids, which are any of various organic substances found in cannabis. In this article, we will discuss CBD and several common cannabinoids.

CBD

CBD (cannabidiol) is a naturally occurring substance in the hemp plant. Unlike its cousin, delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the major active ingredient in marijuana, CBD is not psychoactive. Therefore, CBD will not produce a “high” feeling. That’s because CBD and THC act in different ways on different receptors in the brain and body.

According to ProjectCBD.org, “CBD can actually lessen or neutralize the psychoactive effects of THC, depending on how much of each compound is consumed. Many people want the health benefits of cannabis without the high – or with less of a high. The fact that CBD is therapeutically potent as well as non-intoxicating, and easy to take as a CBD oil, makes it an appealing treatment option for those who are cautious about trying cannabis for the first time.”

The effects of CBD can include:

  • Inflammation/pain relief
  • Decreased anxiety
  • Improved sleep
  • Suppress cancer cell growth
  • Regulate blood sugar
  • Muscle recovery
  • Improved focus
  • And much more…

CBC

CBC (cannabichromene) is one of the minor cannabinoids in the cannabis family. However, like the others, it has many benefits. CBC is also one of the cannabinoids responsible for “the entourage effect.” In short, this means that it helps other cannabinoids do their jobs even better.

The benefits of CBC can include:

  • Acne fighter
  • Anti-depressant
  • Anti-bacterial
  • Suppress cancer cell growth
  • Brain cell stimulant
  • Anti-inflammatory

CBDA

CBDA (cannabidiolic acid), is the cannabinoid precursor to CBD and can be found in raw marijuana material from strains that are bred to be high in CBD, as well as in hemp. According to CNBS.org, “All start out as CBGA. Known as “the mother of all cannabinoids,” it’s from this compound that all the rest originate. Via an enzymatic reaction that occurs in the plant’s trichomes, various percentages of the CBGA turn into CBDA, THCA, and other cannabinoids.”

The benefits of CBDA can include:

  • Anti-depressant
  • Helps epilepsy symptoms
  • Suppress cancer cell growth
  • Anti-Nausea
  • Anti-inflammatory
