THC - Tetrahydrocannabinol
Pairs With: Pocket Fives Blue Raspberry Gummies
Also known as Delta-9, THC is one of the most famous of the over 100 known cannabinoids. It is also the one that gives us the “high” or elevated feeling. However it also is one of the cannabinoids responsible for cannabis’s pain relieving and appetite stimulating effects. THC was first discovered in 1964 by Israeli researcher Raphael Mechoulan.
CBD - Cannabidiol
Pairs with: Sunshower Blood Orange Gummies
Non-intoxicating phytocannabinoid, CBD has been approved for some treatments of epilepsy, has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and can be used to treat skin conditions topically. CBD was first discovered in 1940 by combining wild hemp and cannabis resin.
CBN - Cannabinol
Pairs with: Dynadream CBN Lemon Ginger Soft Chews
There is promise that CBN can support sleep challenges as well as pain relief and appetite stimulation. Usually formed from oxidation and storage of cannabis, it’s a milder and less intoxicating form of THC. CBN was the first cannabinoid to be discovered in the late 1800s.
Delta 8 - Tetrahydrocannabinol
Pairs with: Sunshower Delta 8 Solar Punch 10:1
Delta 8 is one of the more recent cannabinoid discoveries and we are still learning about its potential for pain relief and mood support. However early signs point to milder, less psychoactive effects as THC.
