What do different cannabinoids do?
Here are some of the most common cannabinoids found in full-spectrum CBD oils, and the current research on their benefits.
This psychoactive compound is famous for producing a high when consumed in large quantities. In trace amounts, however, it can have a non-intoxicating, pain-relieving effect.
Pet CBD products can contain up to 0.3% CBD while remaining both legal and safe for dogs.
CBG has demonstrated anti-tumor properties when tested on human gastrointestinal cancer cells, while research on mice has demonstrated its anti-inflammatory properties.
CBG is a relatively common cannabinoid found in many high-quality full-spectrum CBD oils.
In rats, CBN has been shown to possess pain-relieving abilities, while anecdotal reports suggest that CBN can be a mild sedative, making it useful for aiding sleep and anxiety reduction.
Research suggests CBC is able to fight pain by stimulating the release of anandamide, a natural pain-fighting compound produced by the body.
In one study on mice, CBC had an antidepressant effect, improving animals’ reactions to stress.
CBD-V is being used by major pharmaceutical companies to develop drugs that reduce seizures in humans.
Experts believe that CBD-V targets neural pathways associated with the onset and progression of epilepsy.
CBD-A (Cannabidiolic Acid):
Research shows that CBD-A performs many of the same functions as NSAIDs to reduce inflammation.
Scientists in Canada found that CBD-A was more effective than CBD at reducing nausea and anxiety by binding to serotonin receptors.
