Elevate Your Health with CBC and CBG
Most people have heard of the two major principle cannabinoids, THC and CBD. But other cannabinoids like CBC and CBG may also help to optimise your wellness.
What are Cannabinoids?
There are over 100 cannabinoids discovered in the cannabis plant that are being scientifically investigated for their health benefits. Cannabinoids are characterised by their ability to act on cannabinoid receptors that are found throughout the human body. Our body produces endocannabinoids and by supplementing with phytocannabinoids such as CBD, CBC, CBG, and CBN we can help the body achieve peak performance.
Research shows that CBC binds to the ECS as well as other receptor sites including TRPV1 and TRPA1, both of which are linked to pain perception. When CBC activates these receptors, increased levels of the body’s natural endocannabinoids like anandamide are released.
Studies show CBC may support the body’s natural regeneration of nerve cells known as neural stem progenitor cells (NSPCs). NSPCs are essential for the repair of damaged nerve cells and healthy brain function. CBC may also help balance skin inflammation such as the kind seen with acne.
What is Cannabigerol (CBG)
Cannabigerol (CBG) is known as the “mother cannabinoid” because it is the precursor to the major cannabinoids found in the hemp plant. It has also been shown to reduce inflammation and support gastro-intestinal (GI) system health.
CBG works by binding to Endocannabinoid receptors where it is thought to strengthen the function of anandamide; a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in enhancing pleasure and motivation, regulating sleep, and reducing pain.
CBG is also non-intoxicating and has been demonstrated to be a potent antioxidant.
