Over 100 cannabinoids have been found in the hemp plant. THC and cbd, the two major cannabinoids, have been and continue to be widely explored, expanding our knowledge of their advantages. However, a number of recent research studies have shed light on the different functions and possibilities of what are called minor cannabinoids. Many cbd product makers and distributors are increasingly using the lesser cannabinoids CBC and CBN, which are witnessing an increase in customer demand. Let’s find out what’s all the commotion about!
CBC’s potential and benefits
Cannabichromene, often known as CBC, is one of the “big six” cannabinoids, or the six most investigated cannabinoids found in the cannabis UK plant. CBC is obtained from the same source as CBD in that it undergoes the same transformation from cbga to cbca and then to CBC when exposed to UV light or heat. CBC, like CBD, has no intoxicating properties.
CBC does not produce a ‘high’ like THC because it does not bind efficiently to the cb1 cannabinoid receptors in the brain. CBC, on the other hand, binds to a variety of bodily receptors, including the vanilloid receptor 1 (trpv1) and the transient receptor ankyrin. Both of these receptors are connected with pain perception, and when triggered by CBC, they promote the release of endocannabinoids produced by the body, such as anandamide. It increases anandamide absorption, enabling it to remain in the bloodstream for a longer length of time. CBC has shown a high potential for therapeutic effects in a variety of areas, including inflammation, stem/progenitor cell function, and mood.
CBC oils may be used for edible cbd for products as well as topicals such as skincare formulations.
The properties of CBN and their potential benefits
Cannabinol, or CBN, is a novel cannabinoid produced from a plant other than cannabis Sativa. Because it is generated by the external oxidation of THC, it has a special link to the cannabinoid THC. CBN is formed when thca, the acid version of THC, is removed from the plant and stored. When THC is exposed to air and begins to oxidize, it produces cbd as a product. CBN is formed when the chemical is exposed to UV radiation and air.
The cannabinoid CBN is often found in cannabis Sativa plants that have been mistreated throughout their cultivation process. While CBN does contain some psychoactive properties, they are insignificant in comparison to those of THC. There are a lot of medicinal uses for it, including a sedative and body-calming qualities, which have been shown.
It provides many of the same advantages as THC but is only around 10% as powerful
Some of the most noticeable advantages are pain relief, bone development, and healing, as well as topical benefits including treatment for skin irritations and burns.
Cbn isolate may be put into topicals to improve the effectiveness of pain relief and skin irritation balms, creams, salves, and lotions.
