There is a lot to discuss about CBD hemp flower cannabinoids because there are a lot of them \’\’and because their impact in hemp is substantial. Some cannabinoids are considered to be primary \’\’and others are secondary meaning that there is more known about some than others. CBD has always been at the top of the food chain for hemp but as time as passed, other cannabinoids are being isolated \’\’and researchers \’\’and scientists are finding out more about them. CBG is one of these rising stars to the point cultivators are attempting to heighten the expression of CBG in new hemp flower strains.

CBD Hemp Flower Cannabinoids – History of Cannabinoids
The CBD hemp flower cannabinoids history started in 2737 BCE by Emperor Shen Nung who is sometimes called the Father of Chinese Medicine. He noted their health benefits so wrote about these benefits in his medical encyclopedia titled Pen Ts’ao.
Cannabis hemp was added to the US Pharmacopeia in 1850 which was around the same time as Queen Victoria’s reign in Engl\’\’and. Americans also used cannabinoids regularly to improve wellness in the form of tinctures.
First published in 1820, the US Pharmacopeia first set forth a set of st\’\’andards, intended to regulate consistency, quality, \’\’and use of substances in 1820. CBD was first isolated in the 1940s. Scientists became interested in isolating the active ingredients in cannabis in the 1800s, but had only managed to extract cannabinol (CBN) by the turn of the 20th century. It was in the 1940s that scientist isolated: CBD \’\’and THC. Now the researchers were able to start learning more about how these individual compounds impact human health.
Hemp Flower Cannabinoids — CBD
We all know about CBD. It is the most commonly found cannabinoid in the hemp flower. Some say the two most commonly found cannabinoids are CBD \’\’and THC. But the is not true because THC is only found in 0.3% in hemp or even less in some strains even less than that. So, to repeat, CBD is the most commonly found cannabinoids in the highest percentage as well. Hemp flower cannabinoids have various capabilities to work with our own Endocannabinoid System (ECS). The only relationship CBD \’\’and THC have is that CBD diminishes any type of effect THC may have on the CB 1 receptors of the ECS.
CBD Hemp Flower Cannabinoids –CBG
CBG acts as a foundation for the other cannabinoids because it is the precursor to most of the other phytocannabinoids. It does have a wide variety of different therapeutic applications such as managing neuropathic pain. Enzymes located in the trichomes convert CBG into one of the 112 other cannabinoids in the hemp plant. When CBG is most utilized is when it is harvested early \’\’and infused into other strains. This is happening because CBG is rising to the level of health benefits as CBD.
CBD flower cannabinoids which include CBG have some specific benefits on some specific conditions. CBG’s is classified as an antibacterial because reports have been made that it kills and/or slows bacterial growth. The second benefit of hemp flower cannabinoid CBG is how it reduces inflammation and inhibits cell growth in malignant tumors. The third benefit of the CBG cannabinoid is to promote bone growth.
CBG and Inflammatory Bowel Disease
In another study, scientists discovered that CBG was effective in decreasing the inflammation involved with Inflammatory Bowel Disease.
CBG and Huntington’s Disease
In a recent study, researchers discovered that CBG protected the neurons \’\’and hindered the nerve cell degeneration. This is particularly true with Huntington’s disease because it is a disease characterized by nerve cell degeneration \’\’and damage in the brain.
CBG and Cancer
CBG has, too, proved valuable in the fight against cancer – it blocks the receptors which are responsible for cancer cell growth \’\’and inhibits that growth.
CBD Flower Cannabinoids –CBN, CBC, etc
Cannabichromene (CBC) — Just like CBD, CBC does not interact with the CB1 receptors in the brain but only the CB2 receptors. It is considered by many to be the most powerful anti-cancer cannabinoid because it interacts with CB2 receptors in tumor cells. CBC has also fueled research into the use of CBC as an anti-Alzheimer therapy.
CBN — One of the most promising aspects of CBN is its sedative effect. Research into CBN`s properties has gone so far as to suggest that 5mg of CBN could be the equivalent to a 10mg dose of diazepam. CBN`s benefit over diazepam is that the former is a plant-based pain relief \’\’and sleeping aid, \’\’and the chances of addiction are minimal. Many opioid-based pain relief products also come with severe side-effects \’\’and a higher chance of addiction, especially among younger people.
Hemp flower cannabinoids include cannabinol (CBN) which was the first cannabinoid discovered by scientists. CBN is produced when THC is heated to oxygen.
CBD Hemp Flower Cannabinoids — Cannabichromene (CBC)
Another lesser-known hemp flower cannabinoid, but one that shows significant therapeutics is CBC. CBC is also another non-psychoactive cannabinoid.
Hemp flower cannabinoids mature in tropical regions and produce higher amounts of CBC than cannabis in cooler climates. When paired with CBD and THC, CBC appears to be a considerable mood stabilizer.
CBD Hemp Flower Cannabinoids– Cannabicyclol (CBL)
The hemp flower cannabinoid CBL is the silent partner. We know this particular cannabinoid grows especially well on hemp plants left to age. The only study on CBL found that at low doses CBL had no discernable effect. So, scientist \’\’and researchers consider it to be a mysterious compound.
