High Times: Why Take CBG, CBN or THCV?

Rare Cannabinoid Company High Times THCV CBN CBG

Do you know what CBG, CBN or THCV are best for? High Times, the original cannabis counterculture magazine, has an article detailing each of their benefits and featuring Rare Cannabinoid Company’s products.

High Times has been around since 1974 – long before the discovery of the endocannabinoid system. Only in 1992 was it brought to light that cannabinoids in hemp and cannabis turn on and off different receptors in our bodies. This system affects our hormones, pain, inflammation, sleep, mood, memory and more.

We now know that, in addition to THC and CBD, there are dozens of other cannabinoids that are believed to react with our bodies in completely different ways.

In the article on CBG, CBN and THCV, High Times explains the potential benefits of taking specific rare cannabinoids along with scientific research backing their recommendations.

CBG (cannabigerol)
Of the three featured cannabinoids, CBG (cannabigerol) shows the most potential for offering therapeutic benefits for pain and inflammation, according to High Times. They also list more than a dozen studies on CBG and specific diseases. Featured products: Purified CBG oil and 1:1 CBG:CBD blend. Learn more and buy CBG oil here.

CBN (cannabinol)
Fighting insomnia? High Times says CBN’s “warm, cozy, sleepy feel has been compared to Diazepam.” A restful night’s sleep without feeling groggy the next day? That sounds like a dream for many people. Featured products: Purified CBN oil and 1:1 CBN:CBD blend. Learn more and buy CBN oil here.

THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin)
This one may come as a surprise to High Times regulars who are used to cannabis causing the munchies. Unlike THC — the main psychoactive component in cannabis — THCV acts like a stimulant, increasing energy and decreasing hunger. The magazine shows studies on how THCV may help you lose weight. Featured products: Purified THCV oil and 1:1 THCV:CBD blend. Learn more and buy THCV here.

Please note that our 1:1 blends contain a high amount of rare cannabinoid with full spectrum Hawaiian CBD. Our purified single extracts contain twice as much rare cannabinoid. For the entourage effect, we recommend combining our single extracts with each other or using them to enhance our 1000mg full spectrum Hawaiian CBD oil or your own favorite full or broad spectrum CBD or THC oil.
