There are many non-psychoactive cannabinoids but three of these are more important than the others, especially for cbd dropshipping and for the effects they give to our body. We are talking about the classic CBD and the much more alternative CBN and CBG.
cbd dropshipping: CBG, the mother cannabinoid
Cannabigerol (CBG) is often referred to as the “mother cannabinoid”. Like CBD, CBG is non-psychoactive, so it does not cause psychotropic disorders. Plus, it can have amazing and powerful benefits. Of course there are many studies underway, but existing research has linked the benefits of CBG to at least the following:
Reduce glaucoma symptoms and intraocular pressure
Improved bladder function
Neuroprotective for Huntington’s disease
Treatment for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
Some of these potential CBG benefits overlap with those of CBD, but others are distinct. In all likelihood, it is this array of overlapping and complementary benefits that contributes to the entourage effect. This full-bodied and pleasant sensation comes from taking broad-spectrum extracts, which contain CBG and other active cannabinoids along with CBD. Many users believe that the entourage effect is the key to a truly effective CBD treatment and CBG plays an important role in this.
However, CBG usually only appears in very small amounts, making up less than 1% of the cannabinoids found in hemp. As awareness of its potent properties increases, however, some growers are developing special CBG-rich hemp strains. Similarly, some manufacturers are isolating CBG, creating rich and potent brews that harness the full power of this fascinating compound.
cbd dropshipping: CBD, the therapeutic cannabinoid
Cannabidiol, more commonly known as CBD, is one of the two most famous cannabinoids. CBD is not psychoactive.
Interest in CBD has grown in recent years as research and the media highlight its potential to treat a wide variety of symptoms.
CBD was brought to public attention following the case of Charlotte Figi, a young girl suffering from a debilitating form of epilepsy known as Dravet syndrome.
When traditional treatments failed to relieve her symptoms, CBD treatment was the only effective option. She greatly improved her symptoms and reduced her seizure frequency to 2 to 3 per month, an astonishing reduction from the 300 weekly seizures she had suffered before her.
While formal research is ongoing, other case studies and anecdotal reports show that CBD is effective in treating a wide variety of other symptoms and ailments.
Meanwhile, more and more users are trying CBD every day reporting impressive benefits for many aspects of their daily lives.
cbd dropshipping: CBN, the sleepy cannabinoid
Cannabinol (CBN) is one of the lesser known hemp phytocannabinoids. This is partly due to how little CBN is found in the typical batch of hemp flowers. It forms when hydrocannabinols, like THC, are exposed to oxygen for long periods of time. Therefore, it is mostly present in aged hemp and only in very small quantities.
The treatment applications of CBN are still very poorly understood, but the compound has shown incredible promise in one field: the treatment of sleep disorders. Several studies have found that CBN can help fight insomnia, and a growing body of research is aimed at understanding exactly how this mild sedative works.
Unlike CBD and CBG, CBN can have mild psychoactive properties, although much less pronounced than those of THC. Depending, however, on how the CBN is formed and extracted, these effects can be minimized or even eliminated, creating a non-psychoactive CBN product.
As with CBG, some manufacturers are starting to concentrate CBN and infuse it into their mainstream CBD products. Because CBN is still so poorly understood, these products are rare, but the compound’s sleep-aid benefits have already yielded a number of potent anti-insomnia oils and other derivative products.
