CBD, CBG, CBN, FOR COVID-19 PANIC RELIEF

CBD, CBG, CBN, FOR COVID-19 PANIC RELIEF

Stay calm. Avoid panic and unless you’re hoping to recreate utopian conditions like Will Smith’s, I am Legend (2007), stop buying toilet paper and enjoy some time at home. 

But in all seriousness, we get it, we are all stressed to the max, really we do understand. We are all in this together; feeling so many of the same feelings as the person next to you or the person across the world from you.

So, in light of all of this, the BCRX team wanted to present you with some possible solutions. Some information that just might get your inner calm glowing brighter than the pandemic panic that’s currently flushing your cheeks. 

Let’s do some ‘name dropping’, and if you recognize the name go ahead and do a mental ‘emoji-girl hand raise’ (or drop it in the comments below.) 

Have you heard of CBD? Of course you have, but what about:


CBC? CBG? CBN? 


Nope? That’s okay we’ve laid out all of the must-knows for you. 

We all know what THC, CBD, and Hemp are. So, we’ll start there, with the cannabis plant. Here’s what you should know, the cannabis plant is complex ( made up of compounds like THC and CBD), those chemical compounds are called Cannabinoids, and that’s the word you need to know in order to, make sense of all of the rest.

The chemical compounds (Cannabinoids) found in the cannabis plant are for example those we mentioned earlier: CBG, CBD, and THC. The most famous of course being THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), ‘psychoactive’ and CBD (cannabidiol) ‘non-psychoactive’. 

You may think you don’t need any more of the cannabis plant, when you have the O.G. solution. O.G. is great but, there are other useful chemical compounds making up the cannabis plant; actually there’s around 110 of these known chemical compounds. Each chemical compound offers opportunities to soothe out some of those weird vibes the worlds currently feeling. It’s so important to tend to the havoc of a stress-wrecked immune system. 

 

CBC 

Cannabichromene (CBC), here’s the take aways: 

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Protentional digestive and gastrointestinal disorders aid
  • antibacterial and antifungal properties

Potential Cool Science options for CBC: 

  • Regenerating brain cells. 

I may have killed my brain cells with all the rash decisions I made in my late teens, but I grew them back in my mid-twenties.

Cresco Labs says CBC oil is good for treatment of:  

  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Neuropathy
  • Chronic post-operative pain

The reason it is non-intoxicating is because it binds poorly to CB1 Cannabinoid receptors in the brain. But CBC does bind with other receptors in the body, such as the vanilloid receptor 1 (TRPV1) and transient receptor potential ankyrin 1 (TRPA1), both of which are linked to pain perception. -Leafly.com


CBN

Cannabinol (CBN), is mildly psychoactive that just so happens to work as a sedative. It’s a by-product of THC, and the older it is the stronger it is. Here’s the take-aways:

  • Can help with pain relief 
  • Function as a sleep-aid
  • Sedative 

Higher levels of CBN in any cannabis product may provide a particularly effective option for battling insomnia and reducing anxiety. CBN may also be most effective for inducing sleep in combination with other cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. -apothecarium.com

 

CBG

Cannabigerol (CBG), naturally found in trace amounts, the chemical compound apothecarium.com says has shown promise in fighting cancer, and lowering intraocular pressure, which may benefit glaucoma patients


Take-aways: 

  • Increases dopamine
  • Positive effects on sleep, mood, and appetite
  • antioxidant properties
  • Aids with skin issues

CBG plays a very important part within the cannabis plant, but after studies revealed it could be beneficial to us as well, some hemp growers decided to breed a plant that would have higher yields of CBG. 

Potential Cool Science for CBG: 

European research shows evidence that CBG is an effective antibacterial agent, particularly against methicillin-resistant (…) MRSA microbial strains resistant to several classes of drugs. 

_________

In short, the Flu in 1911 didn’t have an online community like the COVID-19 in 2020. Take advantage of this. Join discussion boards. Support online commerce. Start Instagram live parties. Mentor each other and push the limits. Because regardless of today’s climate we are all still capable of building each other up. We can manage so much more than we realize we can. Start Living, consciously. 

Remember, we can still have that summer body come winter, can anyone say hello! summer in December, (I mean they have Christmas in July for a reason folks.)

    Hi Maribel,

    You’re going to be looking for a full-spectrum CBD oil and checking the product label includes CBC. At this time there are companies like https://precisionplantmolecules.com. or https://bidiolax.com/product/cbc-distillate/ That create CBC distillate, but don’t sell directly to the public. Instead, the CBC is diluted beforehand into other CBD products or sold to businesses. You could always get in touch though about consumer buying.

    I’ve pulled this information for you:

    “CBC can be found in some strains of cannabis. Unfortunately, it occurs in small amounts and given the patchwork of cannabis laws in the United States, CBC is not accessible to everyone in this format.
    However, CBC can also be found as an ingredient in a number of full-spectrum and broad-spectrum CBD oils. If you are interested in reaping the potential benefits of CBC or want to experience the whole plant entourage effect, look for a CBD oil products that contains CBC and other cannabinoids as well as naturally occurring terpenes, flavonoids, and fatty acids.
    To be 100% sure your product contains CBC, you’ll need to check the Certificate of Analysis for the item you’re thinking about buying. A Certificate of Analysis is a lab report that breaks down the different components of each batch of CBD oil product, including the cannabinoids (including CBC), terpenes, chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals, to name a few.” -https://cbdoilreview.org/
