What Are Rare Cannabinoids?

‍Unlocking the Secret Powers of Cannabis

May 17, 2024

Everyone knows about THC and CBD, but what about the other cannabinoids that are secretly the chef's kiss of naturally occurring compounds found in cannabis? We're talking about the awesome rare cannabinoids with amazing benefits that you might not know about. They are the unsung heroes of the cannabis plant that will have you chasing a new type of high.

What Makes a Cannabinoid Rare?

So, what's the deal with these exclusive compounds? Rare cannabinoids are found in smaller concentrations in the cannabis plant compared to their famous siblings, THC and CBD. Because they're present in such tiny amounts, extracting them involves a more complicated process. This makes them qualify as diamonds in the rough. Here are some of our favorite rare cannabinoids.

  • Cannabinol (CBN): Naturally occurring in THC and CBD-rich strains, CBN is rising to fame for its ability to promote restful sleep patterns. It's got a knack for influencing appetite and neurological health and might even help you catch some Zs.
  • Cannabigerol (CBG): It's non-intoxicating, like CBD, with similar benefits. CBG is all about reducing inflammation and pain, thanks to its interaction with the nervous system. It also brings some serious antibacterial properties to the table, which are showing promise in treating digestive issues.
  • Cannabichromene (CBC): This one's been under the microscope for decades, yet it's tricky to pull out from the plant. CBC doesn't give you a buzz, but it might tweak your brain's pain sensation and promote brain health.
  • Cannabidivarin (CBDV): Close cousin to CBD but distinct enough to earn its own spot, CBDV is mostly hot for its potential antiepileptic perks. This one's also dabbling in treating inflammation and neurological disorders.
  • Cannabigerovarin (CBGV): This guy packs similar perks but is found in even tinier amounts. It's been showing promise in increasing the bioavailability of CBD—meaning it could help CBD work even better.
  • THC-A, the acidic precursor to THC, is not psychoactive in its raw form but has incredible anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. It's perfect for getting all the benefits of cannabis without the high.  

Embracing the Power of Rare Cannabinoids

It's clear that these rare cannabinoids offer exciting possibilities for enhancing wellness in ways we are just beginning to understand. Whether it's improving sleep with CBN, reducing inflammation with THC-A, or tapping into the antibacterial and neuroprotective effects of CBG, these compounds represent a new frontier in natural health, offering sophisticated alternatives to mainstream cannabis products.

I'm always super satisfied with the service, my product, and the persistent consistency that this dispo has been providing, where others had been lacking. They're always friendly, transparent about pricing, keeping me updated on deals, and they almost always run sales, which means I can save money on quality bud.
