The different cannabinoids and their effectsmister_green
We hear a lot about CBD right now, this miracle molecule that works positively on the body and relieves it of its ills. It is therefore important to take stock of what we know about hemp products and especially its main components, the cannabinoids.
What is a cannabinoid?
A cannabinoid is any molecule present in certain plants. They are present in large quantities in different varieties of cannabis. Cannabinoids can be classified into 2 categories: endocannabinoids, which are naturally present in the body of each mammal (and therefore in humans as well) and phytocannabinoids, present in plants. Until today we have found nearly 120 cannabinoids. Among them we can mention the following:
THC is the best known cannabinoid of the cannabis plant because it is responsible for its prohibition. For more information, read our article on THC.
CBN is obtained when THC is placed under very high heat or oxygen. It is present in several products from industrial hemp, especially full spectrum products. The researchers attributed a lot of importance to him because of his ability to regenerate certain tissues, including the skin but also the bones. Indeed it would be possible to promote bone regeneration. In addition it can serve as a tranquilizer. The main asset in this molecule as sedative is that unlike others it does not cause the hangover effect on waking.
THCV is more or less similar to THC. For more information we invite you to read our article on the THCV.
When the cannabis plant born it contains only acids and very few cannabinoids. During the evolution of the plant enzymes break down acids like CBGA that split into THC and CBD. The longer the plant matures, the more cannabinoids it contains and the less CBG it contains (usually less than 1%). In the course of the various researches of which he was the subject he would have proved effective to fight many evils and disorders. Among them inflammations, depression, the development of tumors … It can also regulate sleep and appetite.
