Ailments and Corresponding Cannabinoid


 

Researchers have identified over 70 unique cannabinoids within the cannabis plant, many of which interact with the human endo-cannabinoid system using the cannabinoid receptors found throughout your body. Some cannabinoids bind more selectively to certain receptors and are more specific for desired medical usage.

  • THC : (tetrahydrocannabinol), is the chemical responsible for most of marijuana’s psychological effects. It acts much like the cannabinoid chemicals made naturally by the body, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).
  • CBD : (Cannabidiol) is one of at least 85 active cannabinoids identified in cannabis. It is a major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. CBD is considered to have a wider scope of medical applications than tetrahydrocannabinol.
  • CBG : ( Cannabigerol) is quickly converted to other cannabinoids by enzymes in the cannabis plant, which explains the low concentration of CBG in most strains. Besides its role in forming other cannabinoids, CBG has a number of important medical effects of its own.
  • CBN : (Cannabinol) is produced as THC ages and breaks down, this process is known as oxidization. High levels of CBN tend to make the user feel messed up rather than high. Studies have shown than CBN works as a immunosupprestant -This has led many experts to believe that CBN can help with an over functioning immune system, thus beneficial for diseases such as Crohn’s and Arthritis. CBN could be a genuine safer alternative for immunosuppression
