Get to know the minor cannabinoids CBG and CBN, how they’re formed, and what to expect.
CBG: the youthful cannabinoid
CBG, or Cannabigerol, is the first cannabinoid produced in the cannabis plant. It begins as CBG-A (cannabigerolic acid), converting to CBG over time as the plant matures.
It’s considered non-intoxicating on its own. But when paired THC, it’s been seen to produce an uplifting, vitalizing high, perfect for kickstarting a new creative project, fueling your outdoor adventure, or boosting your next get-together.
CBG changes as the young plant matures, converting into THC & CBD.
The star of the show, THC is the main psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant and the most abundant cannabinoid. It’s one of the oldest known hallucinogenic compounds and is responsible for the wonderful ‘high’ sensations we feel.
CBD is another well-known, non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in highest concentrations in the hemp plant. CBD has a host of potential benefits and can be helpful in counteracting some of the more intense effects of THC.
Over time, with heat & oxidation, THC & CBD transform into CBN.
CBN: the sleepy cannabinoid
CBN, or Cannabinol, is a naturally occurring byproduct of THC and CBD, which convert to CBN over time as they’re exposed to UV light, heat and oxygen. CBN is also considered non-intoxicating and is known to have a relaxing, soothing effect, perfect to help you wind down at the end of a long day.
