What are the Differences Between THC, CBD, and CBG?

THC, CBD, and CBG – we’ve heard about some of these chemical compounds found in cannabis before, but what’s the difference between them?

  • THC: Tetrahydrocannabinol, also known as THC, is a chemical compound in the resin secreted by cannabis plant glands. THC is best known for its psychoactive effects through the stimulation of brain cells – releasing dopamine. THC is highly sought after for these effects such as euphoria, pain relief, reduced nausea, impaired judgment, and a classic case of the “munchies.”
  • CBD: Cannabidiol, also known as CBD, is another chemical compound found in the cannabis plant. It’s different from THC as it doesn’t have the same ability to create a “high” or state of euphoria and is used in products like oils and edibles because of a wide variety of potential health benefits. The most reliable scientific evidence for the effectiveness of CBD is in childhood epilepsy syndrome. Additional benefit areas include pain relief, inflammation, and insomnia.
  • CBG: Cannabigerol, also known as CBG, is another chemical compound found in cannabis plants. However, it differs from CBD and THC. The main difference is that it doesn’t have euphoria effects like THC and has been observed to work as a buffer THC’s psychoactivity. And as for the deviation from CBD – CBG isn’t researched as thoroughly.

However, a handful of studies do exist praising CBG for the improvement of several health conditions. Additionally, one of the most touted benefits is the ability to work with other cannabinoids synergistically to increase potency.

What are the Benefits of CBD?

CBD enhanced products are gaining tremendous momentum in the health and wellness world. And that’s not just hearsay.
CBD is commonly used to address anxiety, and for patients who suffer through the misery of insomnia, studies suggest that CBD may help with both falling asleep and staying asleep.
Many scientific studies already confirm CBD may help a variety of issues. Cannabidiol has been featured on Oprah, Dr. Oz, and credited by one of our country’s top medical minds, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, as the reason he changed his mind about the unlimited potential of cannabis.

How does CBG interact with CBD and other canabinoids?

Cannabigerol (CBG) has been considered the mother of all cannabinoids. The acid form, CBG-A, breaks down to form CBG, CBD, THC, and CBC when heated. This compound is also non-intoxicating, similar to CBD, and can work as a buffer when confronted with the paranoia sometimes caused by high levels of THC.

Additionally, it’s benefits work synergistically with other cannabinoid compounds through a method called the “Entourage Effect.” Simply put, when all cannabinoids work together synergistically, they are more potent.

Though there are some information that indicates promising benefits of CBG, more research and clinical studies need to occur before drawing any major conclusions.

How does Cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBG, CBC) work?

Did you know that your body produces its own cannabinoids similar to CBD and THC? These endogenous cannabinoids are a part of a system that acts as the “master control system” of the body.
That same system is designed to work with CBD! The endogenous cannabinoid system, or endocannabinoid system (ECS), is a recently discovered system of naturally occurring cannabinoids and cannabinoid receptor sites throughout your entire body!

There are two receptors that make up the endocannabinoid system: CB1 and CB2 receptors. CB1 receptors are found mostly in the nervous system, connective tissues, gonads, glands, and organs.
CB2 receptors are primarily found in the immune system and the structures associated with healthy immune functioning.
Unlike THC, which over stimulates the CB1 and CB2 receptors directly, CBD signals the body’s natural mechanisms to activate those receptors to do more of what they do naturally.

With these cannabinoid receptor sites spread throughout our entire bodies, you can only imagine the importance of having these receptors working properly in order to keep this important internal system functioning to protect you.

It is through this powerful system that CBD hemp can do its magic, but we cannot make any medical claims. We once again encourage you to do your own research with the information we have provided.
