With hemp products, there are a lot of acronyms. THC, CBD, CBN, CBG, lmnop… just kidding. But really, there are so many letters to keep track of that it can be overwhelming. There are many beneficial cannabinoids beyond just CBD, and they each work differently in our bodies.
CBG and CBN are cannabinoids that are all different parts of the hemp bud, similar to CBD or THC. We talk a lot about the benefits of our CBD products, but some of our extra strength and sleep lines have CBG or CBN in them. Most people are familiar with CBD, so today we’re going to dive a little deeper into these other great cannabinoids.
So, what are CBG and CBN?
CBG (cannabigerol) is a form of cannabigerolic acid. CBG can be converted into CBD, CBC, or even THC depending on its metabolic system. CBG is non intoxicating and won’t make you high. CBG is mood-boosting, energizing, and potentially even pain-relieving.
CBG can help you focus on detail-oriented tasks. CBG can’t get you high, but you’ll still have the great benefits of cannabinoids.
CBN (cannabinol) results from aging THC and is a relaxing, calming, sleep aid that is associated with reduced feelings of anxiety and general calmness.
Some people experience more similar results taking CBN to THC as it’s a byproduct of THC’s degradation, but these are usually minor.
How do I use them?
Our Extra Strength Mint Cream oil has CBD and CBN in it, making it perfect for winding down after a long day and getting some good rest. Because this tincture contains 3mg of THC per serving, it's important to note that it could have an intoxicating effect depending on your tolerance to THC.
If you’ve had a long, stressful day, are dealing with sleep disruptions, and anxiety, or want to really chill out and relax, our Extra Strength Mint Cream oil is going to be your best bet. For your deepest sleep, our CBD PM oil combines all of the goodness (CBD, CBN, and THC plus Valerian Root and Chamomile) into one tasty sleep-inducing tincture. Adults can take 1-2ml (60-120mg CBD) one hour before bedtime, or as needed.
On the other hand, if you need to focus, get some energy, and get things done, our Extra Strength Cinnamon oil is the choice for you. Formulated with CBD and CBG, you’ll have all of the benefits of CBD with the added energy and focus boost that comes with CBG. If you need to focus on a work project, are dealing with pain or inflammation, or just want to take the edge off your stress or anxiety without drowsiness, this is the oil that you’ll want to go with.
