For Our Customers
Cannabidiol (CBD) relieves convulsions, inflammation, anxiety and nausea—many of the same therapeutic qualities as THC but without psycoactive effects. It is the main cannabinoid in low-THC cannabis strains, and modern breeders have been developing strains with greater CBD content for medical use.
Cannabinol (CBN) is mildly psychoactive, decreases intraocular pressure, and seizure occurrence.
Cannabichromene (CBC) promotes the analgesic effects (pain relief) of THC and has sedative (calming) effects.
Cannabigerol (CBG) has sedative effects and antimicrobial properties, as well as lowers intraocular pressure.
Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) is showing promise for type 2 diabetes and related metabolic disorders.
Concentrations or percent of each type of cannabinoid ranges widely from plant to plant and strain to strain. In addition to cannabinoids, other cannabis plant molecules are biologically active. A few other molecules known to have health effects are flavonoids and terpenes or terpenoids (the flavor and smell of the strain). Cannabinoids, terpenoids, and other compounds are secreted by the glandular trichomes found most densely on the floral leaves and flowers of female plants.
