Cannabinoids: What Are They Good For?


What we think of as cannabinoids, are actually an activated, or decarboxylated, form of cannabinoid acids which is what is synthesized within the cannabis plant. Cannabinoid acids have very different effects on the body to that of their decarboxylated cousins. And although most cannabinoids are not psychoactive, none of the cannabinoid acids are. It is therefore helpful to remember that consuming even the same plant, you will get very different effects and benefits between the raw and heated forms.

Once the cannabinoid acids have been decarboxylation, either through vaporising, heating or burning, each of the cannabinoid acids yields a corresponding cannabinoid compound.

1. Δ9–tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)

THC, the decarboxylated form of THCa, is responsible for cannabis’ most well-known psychoactive effects in addition to binding to both the CB1 and CB2 receptors. THC may be helpful as a(n):

– Analgesic
– Anti-inflammatory – Anti-oxidant
– Anti-bacterial
– Anti-emetic
– Neuroprotectant
– Neuroregenaritive – Sedative

2. Cannabidiol (CBD)

CBD has been found to interact with a variety of different biological targets, including cannabinoid receptors and other , making it unique amongst the phytocannabinoids. This may also be the reason why it shows therapeutic potential for such a wide range of symptoms. CBD may be helpful as a(n):

– Analgesic
– Antioxidant
– Anti-inflammatory
– Antidepressant
– Antipsychotic
– Anxiolytic
– Anti-convulsive
– Anti-cancer & Tumorous cell growth inhibitor

3. Cannabigerol (CBG)

CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that binds to the CB1 receptor. The pharmacological activity at CB2 receptor sites are currently unknown. CBG may be helpful as a(n):

– Analgesic
– Anti-bacterial
– Anti-inflammatory
– Anti-cancer & Tumorous cell growth inhibitor
– Bone growth promotor
– Intra-ocular pressure reduction aid (Glaucoma)

4. Cannabichromene (CBC)

CBC appears to be mediated through non-cannabinoid receptor interactions and is most often found in tropical cannabis varieties. CBC may be helpful as a(n):

– Analgesic
– Anti-inflammatory
– Anti-cancer & Tumorous cell growth inhibitor – Bone growth promotor
– Anti-depressant
– Neuroregenaritive

5. Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV)

THCV is a minor cannabinoid found in only a few strains of cannabis. Structurally very similar to THC, THCV produce very different effects and is known to act as a CB1 antagonist, in lower dosages and as an agonist at higher concentrations. It is also a partial CB2 antagonist. THCV can be useful as a(n):

– Anxiolytic
– Appetite suppression
– Bone growth promotor

6. Cannabidivarin (CBDV)

Like THCV, CBDV is structurally very similar to CBD with only the substitution of pentyl (5 carbon) for a propyl (3 carbon) side chain. CBDV acts on the TRPV1 receptor in addition to modulating gene expression. Although CBDV has not been researched much, available evidence suggests that it can be useful a(n):

– Anti-convulsive
– Bone growth promotor

7. Cannabichromevarin (CBCV)

Related to CBC, CBCV is very similar to it, but shorter in structure. Although not that much is known about CBCV, it is thought to have similar properties to CBC making it useful as a(n):

– Analgesic
– Anti-inflammatory
– Anti-depressant

8. Cannabichromevarin (CBN)

CBN is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid that is produced from the degradation of THC. There is usually very little to no CBN in a fresh plant. CBN acts as a weak agonist at both the CB1 and CB2 receptors, with greater affinity for CB2 receptors than CB1. CBN is useful as a(n):

– Analgesic
– Anti-inflammatory
– Anticonvulsant
– Anti-bacterial
– Sedative

To date, more than a 85 different cannabinoids have been identified. And although most of these have not been extensively studied, each of these potentially have therapeutic properties adding to what is called the entourage effect. That is why all Farside products contain full-spectrum cannabis compounds as these offer the maximum therapeutic benefits cannabis has to offer.
