I believe that the combination of these two Natural Cannabinoids will create an optimal relaxing supplement that shall be named “Cannabigerinol”. CBGN will be a safe and effective material to help people sleep instead of risky Pharmaceuticals that typically cause side effects.
It is with great anticipation that we officially Trademark the new and first combined Cannabinoid named “Cannabigerinol”
Both CBG and CBN have similar benefits but there are a few differences. CBG has been classified as an antagonist of the CB1-receptor, which affects the central nervous system. Because of this, CBG is believed to partially counteract the paranoid, “heady” high typically associated with tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Cannabigerol (CBG) has also been determined to affect the CB2-receptor, which influences the body more. However, researchers aren’t sure if CBG promotes or inhibits CB2-receptor activity yet. Another effect cannabigerol (CBG) has on the brain is that it inhibits the uptake of GABA, a brain chemical that determines how much stimulation a neuron needs to cause a reaction. When GABA is inhibited it can decrease anxiety and muscle tension similar to the effects of CBD Cannabidiol. An Italian study published in the May 2013 edition of Biological Psychology suggests that cannabigerol (CBG) has strong anti inflammatory properties and may benefit patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It is also useful in the treatment of glaucoma, as CBG can increase the fluid drainage from the eye and reduce the amount of pressure. Further, cannabigerol (CBG) has anti-depressant qualities and may inhibit tumor growth.
CBN does not bind as well to cannabinoid receptors, but is actually known to generate powerful sedative effects. This is actually one of the most obvious effects of CBN and research has shown that 5mg of the stuff is as effective as 10mg of diazepam and other similar pharmaceutical sedatives. It is often thought that CBN contributes to the drowsy and sleep-inducing effects of some Cannabis strains. While it has the properties of a sedative, CBN is not psychoactive, and therefore it could actually be a useful way to medicate without getting high. That being said, the content of CBN in any bud is very tiny and seldom passes the 1% mark in cured bud, although only tiny doses are required for it to affect the body. Studies have shown that CBN could contribute to stimulating bone tissue growth by causing an indirect recruitment of mesenchymal stem cells from surrounding bone marrow. Commonly known for their ability to transform into blood cells, these stem cells are also able to turn into bone and other tissues. Potentially making it useful in healing fractures.
