Lesser Known Cannabinoids: CBN, CBC, and CBG

CBN Transdermal Patch made by Mary’s Medicinals

CBN: Cannabinol, or CBN, is a cannabinoid that is created from THC as it ages and degrades. CBN works primarily as a sedative agent, but it has also shown properties of being an anticonvulsant, an anti-inflammatory agent, and having antibiotic properties. As a topical product, CBN may help with conditions such as psoriasis and treating burns. CBN is about a ¼ as potent as its precursor THC, and the degradation of THC into CBN can be sped up by exposing cannabis to light and heat. 

CBC: Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid that acts similarly to the cannabinoid CBD. One of the most abundant cannabinoids, CBC’s effects manifest as strong inflammation reduction and stimulates THC’s analgesic pain-relieving properties. CBC has also shown promising effects on increasing the viability of neural stem cell progenitor cells. This means that CBC can help the cells that create neural stem cells stay alive, which in a cascading effect helps brain function to stay healthy and fight disease.

CBG: Cannabigerol, or CBG, is another non-intoxicating cannabinoid that works to reduce pain, inflammation, and redness in the skin. The receptors that CBG stimulate suggest that CBG may also work to relax muscles and as an anti-depressant agent. Additionally, CBG has moderate anti-fungal effects and is remarkably effective against MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). Promising studies also show that CBG in high doses destroy cancerous cells, most effectively against breast and prostate cancers.

Taking The Hit: Strawberry Cough Native Cartridge Produced by Winberry Farms

When I heard we were getting a Strawberry Cough cartridge in, I couldn’t help but bury my head in my hands because I knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that I would make it mine.

Strawberry Cough 1g Native Cartridge produced by Winberry Farms

Strawberry Cough is one of four strains tied for my favorite strain, which means I have high standards and expectations.  The fact that this is a Winberry Native cartridge, rather than a normal Winberry, was imperative in my decision to purchase this.  For those who don’t know, Winberry’s normal lines of cartridges use a distillate made from a blend of strains, then flavored with added terpenes.  The Native line uses only one strain, and that’s the experience I want with my favorite strain.

I used a push-button CO2 battery at medium setting and I’ve found this to be ideal.  The taste is magnificent, like sugared strawberries.  Even when I let a friend try it without telling her the strain name or my experience, she commented that it tastes like strawberries.  I normally take 2-3 puffs for a mild high, but I’ve taken as many as 6 because I enjoyed the taste, and I found that to be a moderate but non-lingering high.

The high is a heady cerebral lift, with an smile you cannot fight if you have enough.  Strawberry Cough has a body element as well that comes through in the cartridge.  It’s ideal for hikes where there are beautiful things to see, dancing like no one is watching, as well as cuddling with a loved one.  I would absolutely recommend it to treat depression, though I’d caution against it as a treatment for anxiety.  I experienced a note of paranoia at higher doses, but because of my experience with anxiety I was able to easily deal with it.

All in all, a fun strain that is great for depression and ideal for fun outings with friends.

Taking The Hit: Dutch Treat Distillate Cartridge Produced by Orchid Essentials

Dutch Treat 1g distillate cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

The Dutch Treat Cartridge from Orchid is one of the best quality cartridges I've ever had. The sturdy construction of the capsule itself and the powerful delivery method are worth the difference in price compared to their competition. So many brands fail to have their product thoroughly enjoyed simply because of the physical integrity of their cartridges. A product that is almost as delicate as a glass rig for the home, fails to meet the criteria for "convenient"- at least in the contexts of travel and portability. The flavor is a strong lemon-herb but is not acrid or overwhelming on the palette. It's effects were mellow head high onset and plateaus into an extremely euphoric and jolly stasis. If you are a light cartridge user I could not recommend Orchid more.

Taking The Hit: VC/DC 0.75g disposable cartridge from Quill

"The Quill is Mightier than the Pen."

VC/DC 0.75g disposable cartridge produced by Quill

This beautiful and FULLY recyclable vape pen definitely brings a new level to discreetly medicating while on the go. Thanks to its small size and sleek silver appearance, this pen can be easily concealed within a purse or pocket [although we never recommend leaving vape pens in one's pocket].

Filled with 0.75g of premium CO2 extract and paired with a bright white light at the bottom to display a draw effect, this pen is perfect for short or long pulls and is crazy easy to adjust your dosage. Fist off, I noticed the strain itself was exceptionally beneficial! Not only did it massively relieve every discomfort I was experiencing [i.e. lower back pain, headaches, & menstrual cramping to be specific], but it also provided a wonderful dose of a full on body/mind relaxation. Due to the high amounts of CBD within this strain VC/DC makes for a great option for anyone looking to Medicate without speculation.

VC/DC 0.75g disposable cartridge produced by Quill

VC/DC was created through crossing Viper City OG x AC/DC to produce a wonderful 2:1 CBD strain that presents with a nicely rounded high. And finally, when your pen has ran out of extract to vape it will alert you by brightly flashing its bottom white light, so that way you know it is time for it to be recycled. Recycling is easy, as all you need to do is bring the used cartridge back to the shop.

Taking The Hit: Lemon Kush Distillate Cartridge Produced by Orchid Essentials

This is now the third strain I have tried from Orchid Essentials and one of the first things that drew me to their Vape Pens was the Orchid flower used to symbolize their brand. Orchids are beautiful elegant plants that require the highest of attention to properly propagate, so naturally when it comes to flowers they are thought of as classy and high end; now what could be a better symbol for a high end company?

Lemon Kush 1g distillate cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

Lemon Kush 1g distillate cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

The taste of the Lemon Kush Pen is 100% to be expected, as the subtle taste of lemons moved over my tongue and into my lungs I noticed a nice at ease feeling wash over me. And although this strain is said to be used more for Nighttime use, I found it extremely beneficial to use during the Daytime as well. Sometime, because of my GI issue's, finding my appetite can be a little trying at times so something like Orchid's Lemon Kush was greatly enjoyed. Usually I would wait at least until noon to try to self medicate with this tasty little lemon gem, as it did bring a wonderful sense of calm into the room [and if you weren't careful could bring on a full on nap]. Best to ease the symptoms of Stress and Anxiety while providing a nice dose of Relaxation and Appetite to those who need it.

Taking The Hit: Strawberry Cough Distillate Cartridge Produced by Orchid Essentials

Strawberry Cough 1g distillate cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

This cartridge honestly took me by surprise. At first, you get an intoxicating breath full of a strong pungent strawberry aroma with a very comparable taste. As a lovely fragrant taste of strawberries hit my taste buds I was thrilled with how flavorful this cartridge really was. I felt an immense relaxation wash over my body while my mind stayed comfortably alert throughout the day, but if I was left immobile and sitting for too long I began to fade from being too relaxed. This strain was great at providing relief from day-to-day stress as a slightly euphoric yet relaxing buzz becomes apparent.

One of my favorite things about Orchid Essentials is that they use 100% organic materials in their distillate, including the cannabis derived terpene that they use to thin their final solution. I would 100% recommend ANY of Orchid’s Cartridge types!!!

Taking The Hit: Jack Herer Distillate Cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

Jack Herer distillate cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

Jack Herer distillate cartridge produced by Orchid Essentials

Because I had previously tried Orchid Essentials in a different strain/flavoring of cartridge I knew partially what I was getting myself into. This strain however, was very subtle in both its scent as well as it’s flavor... being a Jack Herer imitation I have to say I LOVED this cartridge just as much as I do the strain itself! With a very mild Lime flavoring and an extremely energetic cerebral high I used this strain most during the early day to wake and bake. Due to having some intense gastric distress issues, I find myself mostly enjoying strains that allow me to medicate early in the day while providing a massive dose of pain relief so that I can continue my day feeling wonderful and this did exactly that.

Taking The Hit: Strawberry Lemonade Cartridge from Winberry Farms

This cartridge is a good little smoker. I got the traveler size, which is Winberry’s disposable model. It’s small but I’ve gotten some good puffs from it. I will say that the oil wicking system is spotty, sometimes it would clog and I got a harsh hit that made me cough like crazy. But what do you expect from a disposable, right? The Strawberry Lemonade oil was very tasty though, it has a crisp fruity sweetness. The high is calm, heady, and functional. Overall I really enjoyed the cartridge.
