Types of CBD

What are Types?

There are hundreds of compounds in the Cannabis plant. A subset of these have been categorized as “Cannabinoids”. Within the group of Cannabinoids are many unique compounds. Some of the more commonly discussed types are:

  • CBC – Cannbichromenes
  • CBD – Cannbidiols
  • CBDA – Cannbidiolic Acid
  • CBDV – Cannabidivarin
  • CBG – Cannabigerol
  • CBN – Cannabinol
  • CBL – Cannabicyclol
  • CBE, CBT, CBDL etc.

In general most users are seeking either pure CBD or a blend of Cannabinoids that is sometimes referred to as “full spectrum”. Most pure CBD are made fromCBD Isolate and full spectrum products are made from whole plant distillates.

What do Cannabinoids do?

The body is known to have an endocannabinoid system which some studies note as an important system which modulates the endocrine and immune system and the function of the brain. The two known receptors in the human body are called CB1 and CB2. While this suggests that the human body does interact with Cannabinoids, to date there have not been formal studies to directly link any specific Cannabinoid to specific outcomes. For more reading search for the terms “Human Endocannabinoid System”.

Which Cannabinoid is best?

Since there are no formal studies showing a direct linkage between a type of CBD and results, other than the study showing benefits to specific forms of epilepsy (approved by the FDA), most users rely on anecdotal information. A quick internet search will provide more information.

Another way to look at how Cannabinoids are being used is to look at the products and strains offered in CBD stores and on the internet, since supply usually adjusts to demand. It appears that users fall into one if two camps, either pure CBD or Full Spectrum Cannabinoids.
