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: Winter Cactus produced by EVOLVD

The Winter Cactus cartridge from EVOLVD has been one of the standout cartridges of the year to me. We see many cartridges come through our doors and the Winter Cactus was one of my absolute favorites. It expresses itself with a unique high stemming from the large amount of THC-V found inside. The high is very much a sativa feeling, catching you right in the temple, leaving you spaced out and simultaneously energized, but notably, very little in the way of inspiring munchies. The THC-V acts as an appetite suppressant in the human body, meaning you don't end up with the munchies, or from a medical standpoint, a fantastic choice for anyone looking for help with overeating. 

Coming from our friends at EVOLVD means any product will meet the quality needs of even the best cured connoisseur, with quality oil, taste, effects that lead the industry, you're sure to love the Winter Cactus!

Taking The Hit: EVOLVD Marigold cartridge

EVOLVD Marigold cartridge

I have been made a believer. Top to bottom, EVOLVD is creating a product and setting a new standard for the cannabis industry that I have been so ready for. Starting with the most important part: their oil. Their Artisn Extraction Process is awesome, it's a series of their own perfected mysterious techniques that result in an oil without any petroleum, butane, propane, hexane, or pentane. Which means you get that really clear almost distillate look to the oil. On top of that since you lose terpenes naturally in the process of creating oil (losing that flavor so many of us love so much) they recombine the terpenes lost in the original ratios. These cartridges taste more like the flower than any oil I have smoked. The high is a light one. It wasn't overpowering, I felt relaxed, and the usual soft pressure behind my eyes that my dear indica friend always leaves me with. However, I was still able to be productive and even land a solid joke at a family get together that made sense and everyone laughed.

Next up: Packaging. EVOLVD uses fully recyclable boxes and has an in-house artist that creates these amazing pictures for each individual strain. The packaging is stacked with information. You can see where the strain used in your cartridge grew, and during what season. You could basically read the box instead of this and glean more information about their company then I'm giving you now. It is such an important detail to me that the company and artist chose not to go the road traveled by most and just put an obvious pot leaf or lean heavily on that imagery. A subtle decision that separates them from the usual "stoner culture" vibe, it gives off an air of professionalism and maturity that I think many of the more casual consumers will feel more comfortable with. Smoking isn't just for college kids. Nana wants to get lit too. 

Finally: Trendsetting. EVOLVD is all about setting standards, all their goods are DEM Pure Certified. A way of thinking and farming I wish all farms would adhere to. We all love to smoke and for the most part, we all care about the planet we live on and want to take care of her. Everything they do to farm, they do in a way that we get our goodies and medicine, while the earth is stimulated and kept healthy. Even better, if EVOLVD works with any farms, those farms also have to follow those guidelines. They seem to be of the mind that no matter how awesome they are, and how good their process are, there is always a way to improve and do better. This philosophy basically sells their product for them, and promotes good practices in the industry.

They have surely leveled up to Deity. I am their humble and blessed Herald. BUY EVOLVD.
