Why choose CBD?
Do you like restful sleep and calmer days? So do we.
Like cannabidiol (CBD), cannabigerol (CBG) is a cannabinoid. Both compounds (and many others) are found in the cannabis plant, both are non-psychoactive (which means they won’t get you high) so what even is CBG?
CBG is the precursor for other cannabinoids, which once heated, CBG-A, the acidic form of CBG, breaks down into other compounds forming CBD (cannabidiol) THC (tetrahydrocannabinol the psychoactive element) and CBC (cannabichromene)
And whilst there has been an increasing amount of research of CBD, research on CBG is somewhat limited, however, what we do know is know the two interact differently in the body.
While CBD is believed to interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) indirectly, CBG is understood to interact directly with the brain’s CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors, and because of this interaction, some researchers suggest CBG may be more beneficial than CBD in treating certain conditions, and according to a 2013 study conducted on mice, CBG may be able to reduce inflammation associated with inflammatory bowel disease. A similar study in 2014 found the use of CBG be able to reduce growth rates of cancer cells in rats with colon cancer.
Why then is CBD more popular
In short, economics. When CBG-A is heated to extract the different compounds, CBD is produced at a level circa 20 times higher than CBG making the latter much more expensive, often pricing it out of reach for everyday use. We at Cannabid Products though have a range of “blended” CBD/CBG Oils that can allow you to experience the difference without the hefty price tag.
Are CBD Supplements Next Big Thing in Keeping your Pet Healthy?
The cannabis plant has been known for its medicinal properties for thousands of years, but it’s only since the mid 90’s when the endocannabinoid system (ECS) was discovered that the idea of giving cannabis-based supplement to our pets to help relieve symptoms of pain and anxiety was thought of, and whilst many people can testify to the positive and sometimes miraculous differences these have made evidence supporting this scientifically is thin on the ground. What is known though, is that whilst humans can tolerate (enjoy) the psychoactive content of cannabis (THC) animals cannot, and in the UK, we are currently barred for selling cannabis products specifically designed for pets, however under the guidance of the Veterinary Medicines Directive (VMD) vets can prescribe cannabis-based products to animals which have low (less than 0.3 percent) or zero THC content, and which is usually a human form of CBD Oil
