What are the Types of CBD?
Thanks for tuning into Xhale City's The 20 Days of 420. Where we discuss what types of cannabinoids are present in the cannabis plant and their functions.
"Now that you know what CBD is, how do you know what you need?
What are the types of CBD?
First, we need to understand the type of cannabinoid receptors that we have in the body. Cannabinoids bind to receptors in the brain and body.
CB1 receptors: Motor Activity, Thinking, Motor Coordination, Appetite, Short Term Memory, Pain Perception and Immune Cells.
CB2 receptors: Respiratory Tract, Immune System, Kidneys, Reproductive System, Muscles, Bone, Eyes, Gastrointestinal System, Central Nervous System, and Cardiovascular System.
Our bodies respond differently to various types of cannabinoids. So different types of CBD remedies will respond better to particular symptoms.
Cannabidiol CBD Can help the following, Relax Muscles, Inflammation, Anxiety, Nausea, Seizures, Skin Conditions.
But what are the other types of cannabinoids?
Cannabinol CBN acts as a powerful sedative. Which may help with symptoms such as sleep apnea. However isolated CBN is not widely available just yet.
Cannabigerol CBG CBG interacts with both CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system. It’s believed to naturally increase dopamine levels which help regulate sleep, mood and appetite. It is also thought to block serotonin receptors which positively impacts treatment for anxiety and depression.
Cannabichromene CBC CBC binds most effectively with vanilloid (TRIP V1) and ankyrin 1 (TRIP A1) receptors which help regulate the perception of discomfort.
Other components of the hemp plant are terpenes and flavonoids.
Terpenes are compounds responsible for the aroma and flavors of cannabis, and support cannabinoids in producing desired effects.
Flavonoids, on the other hand, are similar to terpenes in aroma and flavor profile, but may offer their own effects."
