The Other Cannabinoids: CBG, CBL, CBC, CBN, CBD and THC
We hear a lot about CBD and THC but are there any other cannabinoids in whole flower cannabis? There are CBG, CBL, CBC, CBN. You may have heard the most about CBN because it’s a breakdown product of THC so some people suggest that if you have any old flower lying around that you’re thinking about getting rid of, well, as long as it’s not moldy, and you’ve stored it properly because the oils can degrade, you may find that the TCH has broken down into CBN, which has more of a sedative property and less of a psychoactive property and you may enjoy that old flower regardless of its advancing age.
CBG also works nicely within cell division to help cells slow their growth and maybe especially valuable in cancer. CBC appears to have special value in pain. Now, all of these products are available in small amounts relative to THC and CBD in whole flower but they contribute to the entourage effect. To the idea that all of the different chemicals in the whole flower are going to work together to give you a better product than any of the chemicals individually.
However, laboratories around the world are working furiously on these products trying to isolate them and see how they behave on their own because they maybe very valuable in settings of very dangerous cancers or very serious gastrointestinal issues where whole bud provides a lot of benefit but concentrated particular cannabidiols may provide even more.
