What are cannabinoids?

Have you ever wondered what your weed is made of? No, it isn’t made of Sour Diesel or Purple Punch or whatever fun strain you have. Cannabinoids is your answer. According to the National Cancer Institute, a cannabinoid is “a type of chemical in marijuana that causes drug-like side effects all through the body…” There are hundreds of kinds of cannabinoids ranging from the well known THC to the less popular CBG. Today we are going to discuss the benefits of cannabinoids, specifically CBD (cannabidiol), CBN (cannabinol), and CBG (cannabigerol).

What do they do? (Cannabidiol, Cannabinol, Cannabigerol)

To begin, let’s talk about some misconceptions about cannabinoids. For starters, not all cannabinoids are psychoactive. This means they give the high effect like when people consume marijuana. There are hundreds of cannabinoids inside the marijuana plant and a lot of them do not give psychoactive side effects such as CBG and CBD. Another misconception is they are highly addictive. According to ECHO, “compared to many substances, including opiates, THC carries a far lower risk of chemical dependence. About 9% of THC users meet the criteria for dependence, which is significantly lower compared to 32% of tobacco users and 15% of those who consume alcohol.” In that comparison they are even talking about the most addictive kind of cannabinoid, THC. There is also no evidence to show that non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBG and CBD have any risk for addiction.

What Is CBD?

Now let's begin with the fresh new kid on the block, CBD. CBD vs CBG., what is the difference between CBD and CBG. You may have heard of CBD as it has been covered heavily in the media recently. But what is it? CBD, also known as cannabidiol, is the second most active ingredient in marijuana. While being found in marijuana, it is directly extracted from the marijauna’s cousin, the hemp plant. Marijuana is known for giving the high feeling most people describe when consuming marijuana, but CBD, according to Harvard Health Publishing, “exhibits no side 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.” This means that any kind of stigma that marijuana has had over the years shouldn’t be assumed with CBD. What are the CBD benefits? There are also plenty of health benefits that come with using CBD. These benefits include anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and lowering inflammation. CBD can be effective against things like lung, breast, and prostate cancer. It has also been found to be more effective than antibiotics against bacteria responsible for gonorrhoea, meningitis and Legionnaires’ disease. It can even be applied topically to help people with arthritis. You can find CBD is the specific FDA approved drug, Epidiolex, or you can order it commercially.

Where can I Buy CBD?

CBD products are available all over these days. CBD is available in Oils, Lotions, Balms, Creams, Coffee, Gummies and Pet treats. At CBDBioCare you can order Oil or Soft Chew Treats for your Pet. Lotions, Creams or Sprays for your Skin. CBD products are used quite often to relieve pain as well. You can even buy it wholesale. Share and Earn.  

What is CBG?

Cannabinoid CBG, also known as cannabigerol. CBG is derived from CBGa, which according to Secret Nature CBD is “considered to be the ‘stem cell’ of cannabinoids.” This is because CBGa can be converted into CBD, CBC, or THC inside of a lab. This conversion only happens once, so your CBG oil will not magically turn into THC. Similar to CBD, CBG is non-intoxicating and has been reported to feel a lot like CBD. Though similar in feeling, it interacts with your body very differently. CBG has similar health benefits to CBD such as pain and inflammation. According to Leafly, “A 2017 study found that ‘CBG may hold great promise as an anti-oxidant agent’ and ‘CBG has more potent analgesic (pain-relieving), anti-erythema (anti-inflammatory rash) and lipoxygenase (inflammation) blocking activity than THC.” These inflammatory benefits aren’t as basic as they seem though. Leafly states, “Oxidative stress is theorized to contribute to aging and has been suggested to lead to a vast number of diseases over time, including diabetes, cancer, inflammatory conditions, high blood pressure, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases.” These neurodegenerative diseases include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s. It is also similar to CBN as it shows promise against MRSA, IBS and cancer. Overall CBG seems to be the newest and most promising cannabinoid of them all

Recent studies have shown that CBD is particularly beneficial for dogs.

How so?

Well, it reduces anxiety, seizures, pain, and inflammation in dogs, and it can also improve skin conditions. This is according to a few recent papers. 


CBD might have even more benefits for dogs.

In humans, it’s shown to treat depression, appetite loss, glaucoma, sleeplessness, and more.

Now, because humans and dogs seem to be affected by CBD in similar ways, many scientists are trying to figure out if dogs can also benefit from CBD in the above-mentioned ways.

As we speak, more research is being conducted on the benefits of CBD for dogs. In time, science will show us the full potential of CBD.

Is CBD Legal?

Finally, a misconception that has many people worried, is it legal? The cannabinoids that are derived from the marijuana plant are in fact Schedule 1 substances and are illegal. This does not include CBD. CBD is derived from the hemp plant rather than marijuana, which allows it excluded from the list of Schedule 1 substances. What about a CBD drug test? The urine test most commonly used doesn't even look for CBD but instead a compound created by the body when it metabolizes THC. CBD typically stays in your system for 2 to 5 days, but that range doesn't apply to everyone. For some, CBD can stay in their system for weeks. Hopefully, that reduced peoples’ worries when it comes to these new chemicals on the market.

What is CBN? What are the benefits of CBN?

CBD vs CBN. Another beneficial cannabinoid is CBN, also known as cannabinol. According to Leafy, a site that specializes in spreading information on marijuana, “CBN is a non-intoxicating compound that is best known as the cannabinoid created when THC ages.” CBN is mildly psychoactive because of it resulting from the breakdown of the most psychoactive chemical in marijuana, THC. Weedmaps claims, “Cannabinol (CBN) is only mildly intoxicating; with current research indicating it may only be one-fourth (¼) the potency of THC.” This breakdown of the THC also comes with many health benefits that have been found through recent studies. It has been found to, like CBD, be a great antibacterial chemical. According to Leafly, “In lab settings, CBN was tested on strains of MRSA bacteria that are resistant to traditional antibiotics. Researchers found it to be a potent antibacterial agent against these resistant strains.” These results have been found in only a little amount of studies. Perhaps when studied in more depth, CBN can match CBD in this specific benefit or surpass it. It is also an effective appetite stimulant. Leafly states, “In rodent studies, CBN increased the amount of food that rat subjects ate, suggesting that it could be an effective appetite stimulant.” This could be the answer for people seeking the “munchies” without the high THC brings. CBN could help many people with eating disorders which is a lot more common nowadays. CBN can also help those suffering from Glaucoma. Glaucoma is a group of conditions that damage the optic nerve and is one of the leading causes of blindness for people over 60, according to Mayoclinc. Leafly states, “CBN may also be helpful for those suffering from glaucoma. One study on rabbits found that CBN (as well as THC) reduces intraocular pressure—the biggest risk factor for glaucoma.” This has not been proven to be better than leading glaucoma medications, but it doesn’t hurt to help and only adds to the list of benefits. Finally, like many cannabinoids, CBN is also a very effective anti inflammatory chemical. It has been shown to reduce arthritis in rodents and overall reduce pain. So where do you find this cannabinoid? It can be found on old weed that has been exposed to oxygen, but brands are starting to sell them in the form of tinctures and edibles
