Cannabinoids

These cannabinoids can be contained in your product

Cannabinoids are plant compounds found primarily in the hemp plant. The cannabinoids dock onto the cannabinoid receptors found in the human body, which influence the release of neurotransmitters in the brain.

The two best known cannabinoid receptors are called CB1 and CB2 receptors. These are found in different areas of the human nervous system and perform different functions.

For example, these receptors regulate over- or under-activity of neurotransmitters in the brain. These messenger substances, such as serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine, control the transmission of signals by the nerves. Dysregulation of these can lead to disease. This can be prevented by the targeted supply of cannabinoids.

CBD

CBD

Cannabidiol
CBD is on everyone's lips. But what is it all about? CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that occurs as one of the main cannabinoids in the female hemp plant. CBD is said to have anticonvulsant, anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety effects. CBD is an antagonist of the CB1 receptor found in the human organism and inhibits the effects of CB1 agonists, which includes THC.
CBG

CBG

Cannabigerol
CBG (cannabigerol), like CBD, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in various cannabis species. CBG is also thought to act as a weak antagonist of the CB1 receptor. Research into the substance has only just begun. However, great potential is seen in the treatment of a variety of cancers, sleep disorders and pain relief.

Cannabinol
Cannabinol (CBN) is similar to the most well-known cannabinoid, THC. It is produced by a conversion process from THC. However, CBN is not psychoactive. CBN is said to have the strongest sedative function, but also antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects. Furthermore, CBN seems to exert a strong synergistic effect with other cannabinoids, such as CBD and CBG.
CBC

CBC

Cannabichromene
annabichromene (CBC) is one of the lesser known cannabinoids. It is only present in small amounts in the cannabis plant compared to other cannabinoids like THC or CBD. CBC is known to enhance the effects of the other cannabinoids (like THC and CBD). Furthermore, cannabichromene has antibacterial effects, but studies also indicate effects such as pain relief and anti-depressant properties.

What is the entourage effect?

Many plant compounds have a so-called entourage effect, which means that two biological plant compounds have a higher biological activity in combination than individually. This also applies to the various cannabinoids, such as CBD, THC, CBG, CBN. So if you want to harness the full power of the cannabis plant, reach for a Full or Broad Spectrum CBD supplement.
