Harborside Farms and Minor Cannabinoids
Minor cannabinoids are less discussed and advertised than cannabinoids such as CBD and THC, however, they are critical to the wellness benefits of cannabis consumption. Below we will discuss three different minor cannabinoids as well as their specific properties.
CBG can also balance out the more anxious effects of larger THC doses. Each of the main cannabinoids in cannabis start off as CBG-A before they react with the plant’s enzymes to develop into THC or CBD.
Potential Benefits of CBG:
- May act as a neuroprotectant
- May work as an appetite stimulant
- May help as a sleep aid
Holding very distinctive properties from the rest of the cannabinoids, THCV is known for its mood boosting properties. Cannabis that tests higher in THCV is ideal for those who prefer to consume in the daytime or need an overall energy boost.
Potential Benefits of THCV:
- May help reduce appetite
- May help reduce nervousness
- May help reduce couchlock
Found predominantly in landrace strains, this frequently medically studied non-psychoactive cannabinoid is well known for its possible use as a treatment for seizures. Cannabis that tests higher in CBDV is ideal for those who seek generally relaxing properties from their cannabis.
Potential Benefits of CBDV:
- May help lessen the magnitude of seizures
- May reduce swelling
- May elevate mood without intoxication
