A cannabis tree has over 400 compounds of cannabinoids. Some of the non-toxic compounds have been shown to cure cancer, reducing the psychotic tendency of schizophrenic patients and treating various other chronic diseases. But the content of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), is a psychoactive marijuana and consuming these compounds cannot make you drunk. Florida Marijuana Doctor continue to conduct research.

Cannabidiol (CBD)

CBD is the most studied cannabinoids by scientists. The medical potential of cannabidiol to treat Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, cerebral ischemia, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, inflammation, nausea, and cancer.

In 2009, scientists from Israel and Italy developed the findings and found that CBD has an anxiolytic (anti-anxiety), anti-psychotic, anti-epilepsy, neuroprotection, vasorelaxant, antispasmodic (anti-muscle cramp) properties, anti-ischemic (anti-cancer, antiemetic), anti-bacterial, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, and stimulates bone growth.

Cannabinol (CBN)

Cannabinol is a derivative product of THC. Cannabinol compounds can help the process of sleep, reduce pain and cramps, slow the symptoms of ALS (Lou Gehrig Disease), increase appetite, and stop the spread of residues of certain drugs.

Cannabichromene (CBC)

Specifically found in new harvest crops. However, research has not been done as much as CBD or CBN. A summary of journals in 2009 found the function of CBC as an anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, analgesic, anti-cancer, and stimulates bone growth.

Cannabigerol

Based on the findings in The British Journal of Pharmacology in 2011, CBG-chemotype extraction can be a perfect and safe antiseptic agent to kill bacteria. A recent study from Marijuana Doctors in Florida also found that the non-psychoactive compound is capable of treating various disorders of the autonomic nervous system, including epilepsy.

Tetrahydrocannabivarin

THCV is a typical compound that can be found in Pakistani hashish and cannabis originating from South Africa. Based on the dose, THCV may be an antagonist agent for THC (low doses of THCV may decrease appetite) or vice versa (high doses of THCV are useful for bone formation).

Unlike CBD, CBN, CBC, and CBG, high doses of THCV are capable of making you experience a “floating” phenomenon (lower than THC).
