A mature cannabis plant contains hundreds of different compounds which can be further divided into categories of either flavonoids, terpenes, or cannabinoids, each with different properties and benefits. Here's a little breakdown of each cannabinoid we offer in isolate form!
CBD dates back thousands of years. There is a large variety of chemical compounds found in the Cannabis Sativa plant. There are two active chemical structures responsible for the plant's effects. First is cannabidiol or CBD that doesn’t leave you feeling stoned. The second is tetrahydrocannabinol also known as THC. THC is the element that’s better known because of its capacity to make the users feel “high”. Unlike the latter, CBD is not psychoactive.
CBG is one of the most popular cannabinoids extracted from the cannabis plant, as all cannabinoids start out as CBG. As the plant matures, CBG converts into other cannabinoids such as CBD and THC, leaving low amounts of CBG making it less abundant than other compounds at harvest time.
CBN can be understood as a weaker version of THC. When THC components found in the cannabis plant age, they break down. This leads to the formation of a less potent cannabinoid called CBN. It’s about 25% as effective as THC, which makes it a mild chemical.
