Minor cannabinoids

What are Minor Cannabinoids?

Nestled in the beautiful coastal landscape of Morro Bay, the NHC Morro Bay Cannabis Dispensary takes pride in being a source of knowledge and quality cannabis products. While most people have heard of THC and CBD – the two major cannabinoids – the cannabis plant, as well as cannabis vapes and other products, holds a plethora of lesser-known compounds with their own unique benefits. Let’s explore the world of minor cannabinoids.

Minor cannabinoids are compounds found in the cannabis plant in much smaller concentrations than THC and CBD. Though they might be present in lesser amounts, their potential therapeutic benefits should not be underestimated.

Minor cannabinoids

Common Minor Cannabinoids

CBG (Cannabigerol)

Origins: Often considered the “mother” of other cannabinoids, as many are derived from CBGA, the acidic form of CBG.

Potential Benefits: Anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and muscle relaxant properties. Some studies suggest it might also aid in reducing intraocular pressure, making it potentially useful for glaucoma patients.

CBN (Cannabinol)

Origins: CBN is a byproduct of THC degradation. As THC ages, it gradually turns into CBN.

Potential Benefits: Recognized for its sedative effects. It also has potential as an anti-convulsant and anti-inflammatory agent.

CBC (Cannabichromene)

Origins: CBC stems from CBGA, like CBD and THC.

Potential Benefits: May have anti-inflammatory and anti-depressant properties. Also, some research indicates it may promote brain growth.

THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin)

Origins: Similar in structure to THC but with varied effects.

Potential Benefits: Appetite suppressant properties and might assist in regulating blood sugar levels. Some studies suggest it could aid in reducing panic attacks in PTSD patients without suppressing emotion.

CBDV (Cannabidivarin)

Origins: Similar in structure to CBD.

Potential Benefits: Preliminary research shows potential as an anticonvulsant, making it a candidate for epilepsy treatments.
