How do CBD, CBG, CBN cannabinoids effect human health?

CBD, CBG, and CBN are three of the more than 100 types of natural chemical components called cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant[2]. Here are some of the ways these cannabinoids can affect human health: **CBD (Cannabidiol)**: – Non-intoxicating – Pain and inflammation reduction – Anxiety reduction – Potential neuroprotective properties – Beneficial for combating seizures[6] According to the World Health Organization, CBD “exhibits no effects indicative of any abuse or dependence potential. To date, there is no evidence of public health-related problems associated with the use of pure CBD”[1]. **CBG (Cannabigerol)**: – Non-intoxicating – Digestive benefits – Antibacterial benefits – Pain and inflammation reduction – Potential relationship with both neuropathic pain and inflammatory pain[1] Initial research has indicated that CBG acts as an agonist of the CB1 and CB2 receptors without causing any intoxicating effects. CBG may also act as a GABA reuptake inhibitor[1]. **CBN (Cannabinol)**: – Non-intoxicating – Antibacterial benefits – Sleep aid – Pain relief – Potential neuroprotective properties[2] CBN is currently only attainable by deriving it from CBD through a chemical conversion. While more structurally similar to THC than CBD once it reaches its final form, CBN lacks the psychoactive effects of THC which could allow more patients to utilize it without fear of intoxication or impairment[2]. It’s important to note that all cannabinoids, including CBD, CBG, and CBN, are compounds found in cannabis plants like hemp and marijuana. While research is still in its infancy when it comes to the inner workings of lesser-known cannabinoids like CBG and CBN, early studies and anecdotal evidence show that these cannabinoids have similar anti-anxiety and anti-inflammatory properties that they’re more tenured cousins, CBD and THC, do[3].
