Canna Wholesalers Wants You to Know Them

66 out of the 480 compounds found in cannabis are cannabinoids. The two most noted are THC and CBD. THC is tetrahydrocannabinol the cannabinoid that produces the psychoactive effects that cannabis is most known for. CBD, or cannabidiol, is derived from hemp oil, does not produce psychoactive effects, but is used for medicinal purposes. CBD is gaining credibility with medical doctors and researchers for its therapeutic benefits.

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol)

THC is one of the main reasons people use weed for recreational purposes. THC is the psychoactive compound in cannabis that causes the brain to release dopamine and provides the user with a high. It also aids in pain management.

CBD (Cannabidiol)

CBD is becoming highly regarded for its ability to manage pain effectively. It is derived from hemp oil, specifically from the decarboxylation in the CBDA cannabinoid. CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabis compound that you can buy online from Canna Wholesalers.

THCA (Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid)

THC is derived from THCA. It is the result of a carbon atom being stripped off from the heat. This is sometimes referred to as decarboxylation. THCA is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that is said to be able to reduce inflammation, control nausea, and manage the appetite.

CBDA (Cannabidiolic Acid)

CBDA is a cannabinoid very much like THCA and is found in the hemp plant. When subjected to heat it converts into CBD. It does interact with the endocannabinoid system but does not interact with the CB1 or CB2 receptors directly. By blocking COX-2 enzymes, it helps reduce the effects of pain.

CBN (Cannabinol)

CBN is known as the sleepy cannabinoid. It is slightly psychoactive and not usually present in raw cannabis but can be extracted from it using heat and oxygen. CBN is created when the THCA breaks down after a long period of time.

CBG (Cannabigerol)

This cannabinoid is known for its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It has the ability to remove or reduce the effects of bacterial growth. Some studies have shown CBG to be an effective anti-tumour and anti-cancer treatment and even assists with bone growth.

THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin)

THCV is found in some, but not all strains of cannabis. This compound has proven effective in the treatment of panic attacks, managing appetite and bone growth.

CBC (Cannabichromene)

CBC is a cannabis compound that does not interact directly with the endocannabinoid receptors, but it does have the ability to influence the endocannabinoid system. It has a wide range of benefits including a reduction in the effects of cancer and tumour cells, pain management, reduction of inflammation and acne. If combined with THC and CBD, it can be an effective antidepressant.
