The Complete Plant Profile
Cannabis is a complex plant, with major compounds such as delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol and cannabidiol, which have opposing effects.
A major phytocannabinoid, accounting for up to 40% of the plant extract. Extensive research has demonstrated CBD to be a powerful antioxidant and has the potential to treat a myriad of ischemic, age-related, inflammatory, and autoimmune disorders.
Delta 9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC)
The phytocannabinoid that is responsible for the psychoactive effects of medical cannabis.
May contribute to the overall analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal effects of medical cannabis.
A non-psychoactive cannabinoid with analgesic properties that reportedly aids in sleep and appetite regulation.
A homolog of cannabidiol (CBD) that has been reported to have powerful anti-convulsive effects.
A non-psychoactive precursor and regulator of various key phytocannabinoids.
The propyl homologue of cannabigerol (CBG), CBGV has been shown to be holding great potential for treating cancer. CBGV was shown to be cytostatic in leukaemic cells and caused a simultaneous arrest at all phases of the cell cycle.
The non-acidic form of cannabigerolic acid, cannagiberol is an adaptogenic molecule and is the “parent molecule” from which several other cannabinoids are made.
