There are over 100 cannabinoids that can be found in the cannabis plant. Two of the most common cannabinoids include delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). Although most consumers are familiar with these two cannabinoids, they are less familiar with the other cannabinoids contained in the cannabis plant.
Researchers have widely studied THC and CBD, but the lesser-known cannabinoids, such as cannabigerol (CBG), cannabinol (CBN), and tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV) are unknown to most consumers. Much like THC and CBD, these cannabinoids have their benefits, and researchers are just starting to identify medical applications for CBG, CBN, and THCV.
