CBN is known to be very sedative. According to a recent study by Steep Hill Labs, 5mg of CBN is effective as 10mg of diazepam. It is a good thing that most cannabis contains less than 1% CBN due to these sedative effects.
While research is fairly new on CBN, industry leaders are already working to create extracts and oils to help ad patients with sleep deprivation.
CBG is non-psychoactive and is not present in all cannabis strains. In fact, it is one of the smallest cannabinoids but it has a lot of potential. CBG is know to work on very specific physiological systems and problems. It is known to bind with endocannabinoid receptors in the eye which can help glaucoma patients with inflammation. It has also been shown to protect neurons in mice with Huntington’s Disease and block receptors that cause cancer cell growth.
THCV is similar to THC in its molecular and psychoactive properties. While it is just now starting to be studied by scientist it is showing super cannabinoid promise as an appetite suppressant. It also helps to regulate blood sugar levels in diabetes patients and is also showing the ability to stimulate bone growth which could be beneficial for osteoporosis patients.
While THCA has THC in its name they both have different medicinal properties. THCA is non-psychoactive and is found in live cannabis. While research is quite new on this cannabinoid it is showing to have anti-inflammatory properties while also having the ability to combat nausea and is also showing promise in helping prostate cancer patients due to its anti-proliferative properties.
Most individuals have heard of CBD and THC but CBC (cannabichromene) is the newest big cannabinoid and it has promising medicinal benefits. CBC does not create the high euphoria that THC does but it has shown to help with pain control and inflammation.
CBC has been shown to block pain for osteoarthritis sufferers and can also aid CBD with its cancer fighting abilities. It has also been seen to have a positive effect on healthy brain function in laboratory studies.
THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is best known to create the high euphoria consumers experience. One of the major benefits of THC is pain relief. Many medical marijuana patients choose to consume a strain of cannabis with a higher THC level before bed. While cannabis with a higher THC percentage helps with pain control it also helps with sleep and relaxation. This is very beneficial to patients who have a hard time sleeping due to chronic pain. THC has been shown to help patients
Cannabinoids (THC, CBD, CBN) are chemicals that are released by the cannabis plant. These chemicals have been known to help relieve many medical symptoms including nausea, pain, anxiety and inflammation. Cannabinoids work by imitating endocannabinoids that our body naturally creates. Basically the cannabinoids work to fix any breakdown in communication between the bodies cells. Different cannabinoids bind to different receptors in the body which is why different cannabinoids
The endocannabinoid system works to regulate key functions of the human body. There are three key components to this system: cannabinoid receptors, endocannabinoids and metabolic enzymes.
Cannabinoid receptors sit on the outside of the cells and transmit different changes to the body. Endocannabinoids are molecules that activate the cannabinoid receptors naturally and metabolic enzymes destroy cannabinoid receptors. These three components are found in every part of the body

Muscle spams can be part of many medical conditions and are extremely painful for patients. ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) and MS (Multiple Sclerosis) are two of the most common conditions that can cause persistent muscle spasms.
