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:
The main cannabinoid in every CBD oil, cannabidiol can reduce inflammation, anxiety, pain, and seizures. This makes it relevant to dogs with training, behavioral, or inflammatory issues.
Studies performed on dogs have associated CBD with reduced inflammation, lowered joint swelling, and decreased seizure frequency and intensity.
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.
