CANNABINOID TYPE - CBGA

USAGE STATE: Raw

DEFINITION

Cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) is the acidic form of cannabigerol (CBG). It is a dihydroxybenzoic acid that is olivetolic acid in which the hydrogen at position 3 is substituted by a geranyl group. A biosynthetic precursor to Delta(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol, the principal psychoactive constituent of the Cannabis plant.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS

Analgesic

Anti-inflammatory

CANNABINOID TYPE - CBGV

USAGE STATE: Raw

DEFINITION

One of the most beneficial medicinal cannabinoids offered by the cannabis herb is cannabigerivarin (CBGV), a derivative of cannabigerol (CBG), a molecule that has been described as the “mother of all cannabinoids” due to its role as the molecular source of all other cannabinoids — including THC and cannabidiol (CBD).

MEDICINAL BENEFITS

Anti-inflammatory

CANNABINOID TYPE - CBDA

USAGE STATE: Raw

DEFINITION

CBDA (cannabidiolic acid) is one of many compounds produced by cannabis and hemp. Abundant in the live plants of CBD varieties, it converts to the better-known cannabinoid CBD (cannabidiol) over time and when exposed to heat.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS

Anti-inflammatory

Anti-cancer

Anti-emetic

CANNABINOID TYPE - CBDVA

USAGE STATE: Raw

DEFINITION

Cannabidivarinic acid (CBDVA) is the carboxylic acid precursor of cannabidivarin (CBDV), a close chemical relative to cannabidiol (CBD). All of these substances originate in Cannabis sativa, and CBDVA, CBDV, and CBD share more similarities than differences. ... Cannabinoids like CBD don't start out in their final forms.

CANNABINOID TYPE - CBD

USAGE STATE: Heated

DEFINITION

CBD is the abbreviation for cannabidiol, one of the many cannabinoids, or chemical compounds, found in marijuana and hemp. You're probably already familiar with tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, which is another compound found in the cannabis plant and its main psychoactive component.

CANNABINOID TYPE - CBDV

USAGE STATE: Heated

DEFINITION

CBDV, or cannabidivarin, is one of many molecules derived from Cannabis and hemp plants.  These molecules, commonly referred to as cannabinoids, are partially responsible for the many effects and therapeutic benefits cannabis has to offer.  CBDV is structurally similar to CBD (cannabidiol).

MEDICINAL BENEFITS

Anti-convulsive

Bone Stimulant

CANNABINOID TYPE - CBCA

USAGE STATE: Raw

DEFINITION

Cannabichromenic acid (CBCA is the immediate chemical precursor of cannabichromene (CBC).  During the maturation process of Cannabis sativa, this plant produces a wide variety of different compounds, and CBCA is one of the compounds that appears when cannabis flower is near full maturity.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS

Anti-fungal

Anti-inflammatory

CANNABINOID TYPE - CBCVA

USAGE STATE: Raw

DEFINITION

Very little is known of CBDVA. Just like the CBDV, it has received little attention and is short of certified reference material.  That said, it is expected to become a more interesting area of research in the near future. Despite this, it is evident that cannabidivarinic acid (CDBVA) possesses properties and potential benefits.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS

Anti-inflammatory

CANNABINOID TYPE - CBC

USAGE STATE: Heated

DEFINITION

CBC, or cannabichromene, is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, alongside better known cannabinoids like CBD and THC. Like CBD and THC, it is considered one of the “big six” cannabinoids prominent in current medical research. Unlike THC, CBC is not intoxicating. CBC is also known for its ability to increase levels of anandamide, an important natural endocannabinoid in the body..

CANNABINOID TYPE - CBG

USAGE STATE: Heated

DEFINITION

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a cannabinoid, meaning it’s one of the many chemicals found in Cannabis plants. The most well-known cannabinoids are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) but there’s recently been more interest in the potential benefits of CBG

CANNABINOID TYPE - CBNA

USAGE STATE: Aged

DEFINITION

Cannabinolic Acid (CBNA) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in Cannabis. This Certified Spiking Solution® is suitable for cannabinolic acid testing methods by GC/MS, LC/MS or HPLC for applications in testing of Cannabis potency or impurity profiling, pharmaceutical research and forensic analysis.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS

Anti-anxiety

Anti-emetic

CANNABINOID TYPE -CBN

USAGE STATE: Aged

DEFINITION

Cannabinol, or CBN is a mildly psychoactive component found in Cannabis which, like strongly psychoactive THC, is derived from tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THC-A). CBN is created when THC-A oxidizes. CBN can be used effectively as a sleep aid or sedative.

MEDICINAL BENEFITS

Anti-anxiety

Anti-emetic

 

 

CANNABINOID TYPE - THCA

USAGE STATE: Raw

DEFINITION

THCA, or tetrahydrocannabinolic acid, is a cannabis compound that is beginning to demonstrate therapeutic potential despite the infancy of its research.  You’ve heard of THC, and while they may sound similar, THCA has very different properties. Unlike THC, THCA is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in raw and live cannabis. As the plant dries, THCA slowly converts to THC. Heat expedites this conversion in a process known as decarboxylation, a fancy word that describes what happens when you smoke or vaporize a flower.

CANNABINOID TYPE -THC

USAGE STATE: Heated

DEFINITION

The two main cannabinoids are delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) the most commonly known of the two is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the chemical that is responsible for the psychoactive effects of Cannabis.

What Are Cannabinoid Receptors?

 

The endogenous cannabinoid system, named after the plant that led to its discovery, is perhaps the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. Endocannabinoids and their receptors are found throughout the body: in the brain, organs, connective tissues, glands, and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks, but the goal is always the same: homeostasis, the maintenance of a stable internal environment despite fluctuations in the external environment.

Cannabinoids promote homeostasis at every level of biological life, from the sub-cellular, to the organism, and perhaps to the community and beyond. Here’s one example: autophagy, a process in which a cell sequesters part of its contents to be self-digested and recycled, is mediated by the cannabinoid system. While this process keeps normal cells alive, allowing them to maintain a balance between the synthesis, degradation, and subsequent recycling of cellular products, it has a deadly effect on malignant tumor cells, causing them to consume themselves in a programmed cellular suicide. The death of cancer cells, of course, promotes homeostasis and survival at the level of the entire organism.

Endocannabinoids and cannabinoids are also found at the intersection of the body’s various systems, allowing communication and coordination between

different cell types. At the site of an injury, for example, cannabinoids can be found decreasing the release of activators and sensitizers from the injured tissue,

stabilizing the nerve cell to prevent excessive firing, and calming nearby immune cells to prevent release of pro-inflammatory substances. Three different mechanisms of action on three different cell types for a single purpose: minimize the pain and damage caused by the injury.

The endocannabinoid system, with its complex actions in our immune system, nervous system, and all of the body’s organs, is literally a bridge between body and mind. By understanding this system we begin to see a mechanism that explains how states of consciousness can promote health or disease.

In addition to regulating our internal and cellular homeostasis, cannabinoids influence a person’s relationship with the external environment. Socially, the administration of cannabinoids clearly alters human behavior, often promoting sharing, humor, and creativity. By mediating neurogenesis, neuronal plasticity, and learning, cannabinoids may directly influence a person’s open-mindedness and ability to move beyond limiting patterns of thought and behavior from past situations. Reformatting these old patterns is an essential part of health in our quickly changing environment.
