What are Cannabinoids?

CANNABINOIDS

Cannabinoids are compounds found in hemp and Marijuana. The most notable cannabinoid is the phytocannabinoid tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) (Delta9-THC or Delta8-THC), the primary psychoactive compound in cannabis. Cannabidiol (CBD)is another major constituent of the plant. At least 113 distinct cannabinoids have been isolated from cannabis.

Classical cannabinoids are structurally related to THC.

GHC

THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol)

THC is one of the more familiar cannabinoids due to the notoriety of its intoxicating effects. How does THC manage to do that? It binds to both CB1 and CB2 receptors, making it the most powerful of the bunch.

TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL C21H30O2

TRADE NAME: MARINOL

THC
PSYCHOACTIVE

Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is typically the most abundant cannabinoid present in cannabis products on the market today. THC has very high psychoactive characteristics and is associated with the high and euphoria experienced when using cannabis products. When smoked or ingested THC binds to cannabinoid receptors throughout the body and affects memory, coordination, concentration, pleasure, and time perception.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS
  • Analgesic
  • Anti-nausea
  • Appetite Stimulant
  • Reduces Glaucoma Symptoms
  • Sleep Aid
  • Reduces Anxiety
  • and TSO Symptoms

CBD (cannabidiol)

CBD may be the second-most prominent cannabinoid within the cannabis plant, but it’s being used in everything from supplements to smoothies. In fact, the FDA approved CBD as an active ingredient in a treatment for a rare form of Epilepsy (Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and Dravet syndrome).

CANNABIDIOL C21H30O2

TRADE NAME: EPIDIOLEX

NON-PSYCHOACTIVE

Cannabidiol (CBD) is a major phytocannabinoid and accounts for up to 40% of the plant’s extract. Due to its lack of psychoactivity are non-interference with motor and psychological functions, it is a lacing candidate for a wide variety of medical applications.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS
  • Anti-Seizure
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Analgesic
  • Anti-tumour Effects
  • Anti-psychotic

CBG (cannabigerol)

CBG is only found in trace amounts in the cannabis plant, but its precursor is CBGA, the foundational molecule for all other cannabinoids. A non-psychoactive compound that binds directly to both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, we still don’t know much about CBG and its potential.

CBG

CANNABIGEROL C21H30O2

CBG
NON-PSYCHOACTIVE

Cannabigerol (CBG) is found in higher concentrations in hemp rather than the varieties of Cannabis cultivated for high THC content. Most strains of Cannabis will only have trace amounts of CBC somewhere below one percent. CBG has been shown to relieve intracellular pressure which may benefit glaucoma patients, and may be effective in treating inflammatory bowel disease.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Antibacterial
  • Stimulates cell growth
  • Lowers blood pressure

CBN (cannabinol)

CBN can produce a psychoactive response, but only marginally so compared to THC. This is because CBN is actually THC that has been broken down after long-term exposure to oxygen. This is why older marijuana may lose potency as THC decreases and CBN increases.

CBN

CANNABINOL C21H30O2

PSYCHOACTIVE

Cannabinol (CBN) is a weak psychoactive cannabinoid found in trace amounts in Cannabis Sativa and Cannabis Indica species. CBN is found in higher concentrations in degraded or oxidized cannabis products and can indicate the age or poor handing of medical cannabis products. Although there is little research, high concentrations of CE are associated with undesirable side effects such as confusion and light-headedness.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS
  • Analgesic
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Sleep Aid
  • Anticonvulsant

THCA (tetrahydrocannabinolic acid)

CBG is only found in trace amounts in the cannabis plant, but its precursor is CBGA, the foundational molecule for all other cannabinoids. A non-psychoactive compound that binds directly to both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, we still don’t know much about CBG and its potential.

THC-A

TETRAHYDROCANNABINOL C21H30O2

THC A
NON-PSYCHOACTIVE

Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid also more popularly known as THCA is one of the hundred cannabinoids found in the marijuana plant family. THCA is called the acidic form of THC, with just a slight difference. It is not psychoactive like its sibling. THCA essentially originates from CBGA as the marijuana plant starts to get matured. The presence of an extra molecular carboxyl ring, it cannot bind with the endocannabinoid receptors, hence not being able to produce the psychoactivity that THCA produces.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS
  • Helps relieve inflammation
  • Seizure and arthritis reliever

A synthetic compound derived from hemp. Roughly three times stronger than conventional THC, It takes about 20 to 30 minutes to kick in. There are no long-term, definitive studies on the effects of THC-O.

HHC HHC

HHC

Hexahydrocannabinol is a natural phytocannabinoid and is among the newest found hemp-derived element. HHC is 70-80% more potent than D8 / D9 and has more relaxing qualities.

CBN or Cannabinol comes from the plant’s primary chemical THC but has a lower potency level than THC.

THC A THC A

THC-A

While it is an acidic form of THC, it is non-intoxicating when ingested. An extra molecular carboxyl ring keeps it from binding to the brain receptors that induce euphoric effects. But heat exposure can covert it into a psychoactive substance.
