CBN (cannabinol) is another cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, albeit in smaller quantities than THC or CBD. CBN is produced when THC ages or is exposed to oxygen. It is believed to have potential therapeutic benefits, including pain relief, anti-inflammatory effects and may act as a sleep aid. However, further research is needed to fully understand the effects of CBN on the body. For more information on CBN, please refer to this article from Medical News Today.
CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive compound found in the cannabis plant. It is believed to have potential therapeutic benefits, including pain relief, reduced anxiety and depression, and improved sleep. CBD works by interacting with the body's endocannabinoid system, which is responsible for regulating various bodily functions like sleep, appetite, and mood. More research is needed to fully understand the effects of CBD on the body. For more information on CBD, please refer to this article from Medical News Today.
THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of the primary cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. It is primarily responsible for the plant's psychoactive effects and is what produces the "high" associated with cannabis use. THC works by binding to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain, which can affect mood, appetite, memory, and perception. For more information on THC and its effects on the body, please refer to this article from Verywell Mind.
Terpenes are aromatic compounds that give cannabis its distinctive scent and flavor. They are also believed to play a role in the plant's effects on the body. Some terpenes, like linalool, have been shown to have calming and relaxing effects, while others, like limonene, may have uplifting and energizing effects. For more information on terpenes and their effects on the body, please refer to this article from Leafly.
Trichomes play a crucial role in the cannabis plant's ability to produce cannabinoids. These tiny, hair-like growths are responsible for producing and storing the majority of the plant's cannabinoids, including THC and CBD. In addition to their role in cannabinoid production, trichomes also protect the plant from predators and harsh environmental conditions. They can deter insects and animals with their sticky texture and strong aroma, and they can help to reduce water loss from the plant's surface. For more information on the role of trichomes in the cannabis plant, please refer to this article from Leafly.
