CBD (cannabidiol) is the second most common cannabinoid in cannabis and hemp. On average, CBD represents about 0.1-12 percent of the cannabinoid content in the plant. CBD provides potent therapeutic benefits without the euphoria or lethargy that THC varieties induce. Unlike THC, CBD is completely nonpsychoactive. Hence why there is no associated “high” feeling.
While THC is widely known for its psychoactive properties, CBD may be best known for its ability to counterbalance anxiety, tachycardia (rapid heartbeat), hunger and sedation caused by THC. Research also suggests CBD displays promising anti-inflammatory, antidepressant, antioxidant, neuroprotectant and pain fighting-properties. CBD has shown success with Dementia, alleviating severe forms of epilepsy and reducing cancer cell growth.
CBG (cannabigerol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid in cannabis and hemp. It is the precursor to THC and CBD. In fact, cannabigerol is considered to be the building block of cannabinoids. CBG offers incredible therapeutic potential, particularly for neurological disorders. Cannabigerol is shown to stimulate neurogenesis, new brain cell growth. CBG is being used to successfully treat a number of neurological issues like Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, CTE, and Autism. CBG is also shown to have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and anti-tumor properties. Most strains of cannabis though only contain minor concentrations of CBG. Hemp, on the other hand, has relatively high concentrations of CBG in comparison. Hence why hemp based CBG is a highly effective option.
Full spectrum CBD extracts the full properties of the plant for maximum benefit. Unlike isolated CBD extracts, full spectrum CBD contains all of the oils, properties, and molecules present in cannabis and hemp. This enables the entourage effect to take hold. Instead of isolating a single compound, all of the natural compounds are able to work together synergistically, increasing the medicinal value.
A topical is any lotion, balm, or salve that is infused with hemp or cannabis. Hemp topicals are especially rich in a cannabinoid called Cannabidiol, or CBD. This is significant because CBD is shown to have a number of therapeutic benefits, including providing pain relief, reducing inflammation, and alleviating muscle tension and soreness. Hence why hemp topicals can be helpful for treating a wide variety of skin conditions. Topicals are a safe and effective way to reap the external benefits of CBD.
Sublinguals are medications administered under the tongue. A big advantage of sublinguals is that they deliver a concentrated dose of medicine quickly. Placing a few drops of a sublingual under your tongue allows for rapid onset. The cannabinoids immediately enter the bloodstream to start taking effect. This is a great option if you’re searching for a discreet, simple, and quick way to reap the benefits of CBD.
