The various components of cannabinoids
You may already know that CBD means cannabidiol, and that it is only one of the more than 140 cannabinoids (natural substances).
Recently, people in Japan are getting a bit more familiar with CBD, but in the U.S., in addition to CBD research, a number of other cannabinoids such as CBC, CBN, and THCv have already been studied, and many cannabinoids are gaining attention in the medical, health, and beauty industries.
So here are some of the cannabinoid ingredients that we deal with.
□CBD (water soluble and oil soluble)
For now, CBD California Trading Company is probably the only one that imports such unique raw materials to Japan.
Our ingredients are chemically synthesized from terpenes (guaranteed non-additive, non-GMO, THC-free, and pesticide-free), using cannabinoids identical to the cannabis plant.
GRAS certified, 99.5% pure, THC-free, citrus-derived, pesticide-free, CGMP production…
By the way, in case you are wondering, let’s take a look at the percentage of cannabinoids that we can find in cannabis:
All other cannabinoids are respectively less than 1%.
As you can see above, cannabinoids other than THC and CBD can only be extracted from the cannabis plant in very small amounts.
Therefore, that is why they are more expensive raw materials.
Studies have also shown that the effects of these cannabinoids are slightly different.
You may often hear that CBD works well to improve sleep quality and relieve pain, but if you make more research, you may find that CBN works even more efficiently on sleep quality.
CBN is also expected to reduce inflammation.
As you can see, the function of each cannabinoid can be slightly different.
However, as of February 2022, the research in the US is still in progress and their results are gradually coming out.
In summary, as you can see, cannabinoids have different effects and some of them can only be obtained in small quantities from the plant.
However, the raw materials we deal in are chemically synthesized, allowing us to offer them at the same price as CBD.
So if you are interested and want to know more about the main differences between each of them, please feel free to contact us!
