What Are The 6 Most Effective Hemp Cannabinoids?
Out of over 100 cannabinoids found in the hemp plant, there are 6 that are considered most common, researched and effective, they are: Delta 9 THC, Delta 8 THC, CBD, CBG, CBN, and THCV.
Here are the highlights of each of these 6 cannabinoids:
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol), also known as delta-9 THC, is the primary cannabinoid that is responsible for psychoactive effects in the cannabis plant.
The hemp plant, on the other hand, is federally regulated to contain less than 0.3% THC by dry weight, a substantially reduced concentration, compared to traditional cannabis, that doesn’t create a high. This is why the hemp variety of cannabis is considered federally legal!
However, hemp producers have developed full spectrum products, containing an entourage of cannabinoids, that meet the THC ratio requirements yet contain noticeable amounts of THC.
These full spectrum delta 9 hemp derived products offer the many effects and benefits of delta 9 THC, such as relaxation, lifted mood, bodily tension release and euphoria, due to the hemp producers adjusting the ratio of delta-9 THC to other cannabinoids.
Delta 8 Tetrahydrocannabinol, is another naturally occurring THC found in the hemp plant, although in very small quantities.
Delta 8 THC is similar to Delta 9 THC in chemical structure and causes similar psychoactive effects, as well as relaxation and mood benefits, although they are less potent.
Due to the scant naturally occurring quantity of delta 8 THC in the hemp plant, producers manufacture it from hemp derived CBD.
However, it is important to note that high quality Delta 8 products, that deliver the healthiest and purely potent effects, start with farm fresh, solventless extracted delta 8 distillate.
Very few delta 8 product companies in the market produce solventless extracted products due to the added expense of production.
Conscious homegrown craft hemp companies, like 3 Tall Pines Farm of Wisconsin, only produce premium, solventless extracted Delta 8 distillate for their products, including delta 8 chocolate bars, gummies, D8 infused flower, vape cartridges, disposable vapes, and more!
CBD (Cannabidiol) is found in high concentrations in quality hemp flower. It can constitute up to around 10% of the hemp flower’s dry weight.
This beneficial cannabinoid is non-psychoactive and is the cannabinoid responsible for the huge boom of the hemp CBD market.
CBD has an extensive array of mind-body benefits and effects that include, full body relaxation, stress & body tension release, improved mood, feeling of calm, and many other researched therapeutic benefits.
This powerfully beneficial cannabinoid also plays a vital role in the production of hemp-derived products and in the isomerization or conversion of CBD to delta 8 THC.
Full spectrum CBD products contain all of the naturally occurring cannabinoids, terpenes and other beneficial compounds that contribute to enhancing the overall effects and wellness properties of the plant.
CBG (Cannabigerol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has multiple benefits and effects for health and well-being!
CBG is known for its promotion of mental clarity and focus, as well as promoting physical energy.
CBG also has many helpful health benefits, such as neuroprotective support, as well as support for stress and muscle tension release, and other therapeutic enhancements.
Research has shown that when CBG and CBD are combined it has increased benefits and effects.
Both CBD and CBG share similar properties and benefits. However, their differences lie in the mechanism of interaction with the body’s central and peripheral nervous systems, (which include the brain), along with the endocannabinoid system, that regulates homeostasis or balance of the body’s regulating systems.
This difference of interaction steps up the beneficial effects of both CBD and CBG when combined.
Hemp derived products like CBD/CBG flower and tinctures (when taken under the tongue) are one of the fastest ways to receive these cannabinoids into your system. The effects can be felt within minutes and often last for hours.
CBN (Cannabinol) is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that is created when THC ages in the hemp plant.
Although CBN is non-intoxicating, it is the most highly sedative cannabinoid and is beneficial for its deeply relaxing effects and promotion of restful sleep.
CBN, when combined with other cannabinoids like CBD and Delta 8 can provide heightened effects.
THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin) has unique effects because it does not produce psychoactivity at low doses. However, once the dosage reaches a higher threshold, it produces psychoactive effects, depending on the dose and the individual user.
At lower doses THCV has stimulating and uplifting effects. Although the research is not conclusive, THCV has been reported by consumers to support weight loss and appetite control, as well as possible blood sugar and insulin support.
