Advantages of using CBD + CBG + CBN drops
These CBD + CBG + CBN drops are derived from extremely rich cannabis plant (Cannabis sativa L. Var. Sativa). Cannabidiol (CBD), Cannabigerol (CBG), and Cannabinol (CBN) are three of the more than 100 types of natural chemical components called cannabinoids. This product has 3 important cannabinoids in higher dosage in order to increase its power. The extracts are obtained by a modern method of CO2 extraction, and then coconut and lavender oil are added. The product is made carefully and in accordance with the highest standards of production, while the content of cannabinoids is verified by an independent laboratory.
CBD was discovered in 1940 by Dr. Roger Adams and his team at the University of Illinois. Since those days we have learned many things about the cannabinoid, including how it interacts with our endocannabinoid systems (ECS).
Opposite THC’s agonistic behavior towards our ECS receptors, CBD is an antagonist of receptors. It is thought that this is the reason why a high is not produced. It has been shown that CBD inhibits the adverse psychoactive effects of THC through the CB1 receptors, counteracting undesirable effects of cannabis-based therapies.
The use of cannabidiol (CBD) has become widespread over the last few years. It is known for its pain and inflammation-relieving qualities but doesn’t have a high as the psychoactive cannabinoid THC does.
And next to tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD is the second-most cannabinoid in abundance in the cannabis plant. In hemp, it is the most abundant cannabinoid. This means CBD is the cheapest to lawfully extract and produce, allowing the easiest path to your doorstep.
Today, CBD is available in the form of tinctures, gummies, pills, topicals, and much more. Because it does not produce a high, this makes it ideal for health and wellness applications.
Despite now being available in so many forms, CBD is still not regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Only just recently has the first CBD pharmaceutical been approved. This is Epidiolex, a drug that passed clinical trials for the use of two rare forms of epilepsy. We hope for more CBD drugs on the market in the coming years.
Here are some common ailments that CBD may help with:
- Daily aches and pains(sports injuries, bumps, and bruises, etc.)
- Chronic pain:Cannabidiol may regulate pain by interacting with the brain cells.
- Anti-inflammatory:CBD has shown its use in the treatment of inflammatory conditions including arthritis.
- Anxiety and panic disorders:CBD has been shown valuable for the possible treatment of anxiety disorders.
- Nausea and vomiting:CBD, as well as other, cannabinoids, may help relieve nausea. This is especially helpful for patients undergoing chemotherapy.
- Skin conditions:CBD may be affected in the treatment of skin conditions like acne, rashes, and eczema.
- Seizuresand convulsive disorders
CBG was first discovered by Yehiel Gaoni and Raphael Mechoulam in 1964. The scientists discovered the cannabinoid while working with hashish, which led researchers to believe it was a constituent of hash until 1975 when researchers found that the acidic form of CBG, CBGA, occurs naturally as the first cannabinoid to form in a new cannabis plant.
Cannabigerol is said to interact with both the CB1 and CB2 receptors in our endocannabinoid systems (ECS). This is thought to strengthen the function of anandamide, which is a neurotransmitter that can help regulate things like motivation, pleasure, appetite, sleep, and pain.
Cannabigerol (CBG) comes from the precursor cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) which is known as the “mother of all cannabinoids.” THC, CBG, and CBD begin as CBGA, and are later broken down into their final forms after the plant has been exposed to light and heat.
CBG appears in very small amounts of cannabis: typically less than 1%. Since it is rare, it must be properly extracted from the plant, which can be very expensive. For this reason, CBG is not well-known and is outshined by CBD on the market today. But it does contain what may be helpful medicinal benefits.
Here are some possible benefits of CBG:
- Pain relief: CBG may be a powerful muscle relaxant. It may be even more powerful than CBD or THC.
- Anxiety and depression: CBG is believed to obstruct GABA uptake in the brain and block serotonin receptors. This may be helpful in the treatment of anxiety and depression.
- Glaucoma: CBG could be effective at reducing the intraocular pressure associated with glaucoma.
- Neuroprotective properties: CBG has been shown to affect neurological disorders like Huntington’s Disease, a fatal genetic disorder that causes the progressive breakdown of nerve cells in the brain.
- Anti-bacterial: It has been revealed the antibiotic properties of CBG, discovering that it was useful at combating Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains that are resistant to several classes of antibiotics.
- Decreases inflammation
- Increases appetite
CBG has also been studied as a potential treatment for Inflammatory Bowel Disease and bladder dysfunction disorders.
Cannabinol (CBN) was the first cannabinoid to be uncovered. Robert Sidney Conn, a British chemist, is said to have made the first discovery in 1930. CBN is not produced naturally, but forms as THC degrades in a plant as a result of age or exposure to heat or oxygen.
This older sibling cannabinoid in the cannabis family is available only in trace amounts. Younger cannabis or freshly-dried cannabis will be low in CBN, but as it ages, the CBN content will grow. Typically, recreational users don’t like CBN in their cannabis because it is an indication that the product is old and stale.
Known as a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid, CBN does have some intoxicating effects. However, research suggests it is only one-fourth as potent as THC. This may be because CBN binds to cannabinoid receptors less effectively than many other cannabinoids. Since it is typically only available in trace amounts, CBN will more than likely not cause a high.
Here are some possible benefits that may be produced by CBN:
- Sedating: It is said that when cannabinol is paired with THC, CBD and other cannabinoids it can create a sedative effect that can be helpful for insomnia sufferers. However, the fact that CBN acts as a sedative on its own may be disputed by some. Further research is needed.
- Immunosuppressant and fights inflammation: This chemical analysis of CBN states that the compound may act as an immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory.
- Pain-relieving: When combined with CBD, CBN may significantly decrease levels of pain through analgesic properties. This is done through the inhibition of muscle relaxation. It is said this finding may be useful for the treatment of chronic muscle pain disorders like fibromyalgia.
- Stimulation of bone tissue growth: This study found that CBN may reverse bone loss caused by osteoporosis. It may help with the production of new bone cells through the activation of stem cells. This suggests that CBN may be potentially healing for fractures caused by aging and osteoporosis.
- Despite these promising findings, CBN is not currently widely available.
MCT oil or medium-chain triglycerides is coconut oil. It has positive effects on the immune system.
The main benefits of MCT oil are:
- Fast source of energy,
- Weight control (speeds fat consumption, reduces appetite),
- A great source of energy for athletes,
- Beneficial in cases of impaired metabolism (celiac disease, Crohn’s disease, cystic fibrosis, biliary cirrhosis etc.).
Lavender essential oil is one of the most popular and versatile essential oils used in aromatherapy. It is distilled from the plant Lavandula angustifolia.
Benefits from lavender oil include:
- Promotes sleep and fights insomnia,
- Reduces anxiety,
- Some other benefits.
