The endocannabinoid system is found in the brain, and its job is to keep our body in balance. And it controls everything from appetite to sleep, inflammation to pain and much more. When someone takes on a joint, THC overwhelms the endocannabinoid system, locking on to cannabinoid receptors and stopping their ability to communicate amongst neurons. The two most common looked at cannabinoids are THC and CBD, both used in cancer treatments, AIDS patients, MS to PTSD patients, it can treat insomnia, depression, and anxiety. Be careful, though, because it can also do the opposite intentions in people using it for medicinal values.

There are 100’s of known cannabinoids in the brain and the cannabis plant. Here is a look at some of the newer researched cannabinoids:

CBN

CBN is created when THC ages. It’s common in older cannabis plants. As of now, there is minimal research into CBN, but studies have shown it has an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial that can act as a neuroprotectant.

Delta-8-THC

Known to produce the euphoria of delta-9 and cause the paranoia effects cannabis may produce, delta-8 remains in legal limbo. In early studies, it is shown to have anti-anxiety properties.

CBC

Beginning studies propose nonintoxicating cannabichromene (CBC) can block inflammation, pain and could be a treatment for acne, depression, osteoarthritis, and certain cancers.

CBG

This is the first cannabinoid to form in the cannabinoid system, and it communicates with enzymes to create CBD and THC, “Think of CBG as the lifeblood of the cannabinoids spectrum” – John Nathan.

CBDV

Is non-psychotropic cannabidivarin (CBDV) structurally comparable to CBD? Early research suggests it’s useful to stop seizures from epilepsy and similar disorders, and it might help treat people’s conditions on the autism spectrum.

THCP

Tetrahydrocannabiphorol (THCP) is 30 times the high of THC. If it binds properly in the cannabinoid system, it is found in only small amounts and is not found at all in most species of cannabis plants. They need to do more research on the newly discovered cannabinoid.
