The Future of Cannabinoid Research looks bright!
CBD is only one of more than 70 different cannabinoids that can be found in hemp. Each cannabinoid interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system in a different way—which is what leads researchers to believe that phytocannabinoid remedies have the power to successfully ease a wide array of conditions. In addition to CBD, you may also be familiar with THC. Unlike CBD, THC binds directly to cannabinoid receptors and delivers psychoactive effects. THC is being studied for its painkilling, anti-inflammatory, appetite-stimulating and anti-depressant effects.
Here are a few other cannabinoids that can be found in hemp and the benefits currently being studied:
- CBG is being examined as a painkiller and a gastrointestinal anti-inflammatory
- THCV could prove to be an appetite suppressant and memory aid
- CBN is being studied as a sleep aid, a bone-growth stimulator, an anti-conversant and an anti-anxiety treatments
- CBC is being tested for efficacy in wide variety of health related conditions
