Cannabinoids

Cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in cannabis sativa L. plant.  To date, nearly 500 compounds have been discovered in cannabis, 66 are cannabinoids.  Cannabinoids are lipid signalling molecules that engage and act on the mammalian body's endocannabinoid system (ECS).

There are three types of cannabinoids:

1) phytocannabinoids produced by plants - like what we use in our endoteas blends!

2) endocannabinoids produced within the mammalian body - attempting to maintain balance / homeostasis 

3) synthetic cannabinoids produced in the laboratory -  processing the plant or grown from petri dish

 

The most common or "classical cannabinoids" include THC, THCv, THCa, CBD, CBDa, CBDv. This list will continue exponentially alongside its science. To date, Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is the only one that possesses the psychoactive compounds. The remaining cannabinoid compounds are considered 'minor' compounds, CBC, CBG, CBN, CBG, CBC, CBG, CBN, CBG, CBV.  More about these compounds below.

 

endoteas subscribes to the federal legal limit and our products contain 0.3% THC or less.  Having this pinched dose of THC is essential to reaping the full health benefits. When a cannabis hemp product has all its microdosed compounds, it is considered 'full-spectrum'.  When the product contains zero THC but has the other 399 compounds,, it is considered a 'broad spectrum' product.  There are times when specific cannabinoids are 'isolated' into an 'isolate' powder form, such as CBD isolate.  

CB1 Receptors - aka endoCannabinoid system Receptors are primarily located brain -

      psychoactive, neuromodulatory receptors, and more!

CB2 Receptors - aka endoCannabinoid system Receptors are primarily located throughout body - 

      anti inflammatory immunomodulatory receptor, and more!

CBD, cannabidiol, is a critical terpene for full hemp health benefits because it acts as 'the' entourage 

     effect compound.  It modulates THC's affinity for CB1 receptor activity, basically helps reduces THC side effects.         

     CBD effects prove to aid with the following ailments:  neuropathic pain, burns, irritable bladder,

    interstitial cystitis, prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain, fibromyalgia, inflammatory bowel disease,

    pancreatic pain, various  dermatological pruritic conditions, addiction recovery, and serves as an antibacterial,

    anti convulsant, antifungal, anti inflammatory, anti anxiety, arthritic aid, dental hygiene aid, immunomodulator,

    reduces nausea, neuroregenerative aid, mental illness aid, multiple sclerosis, antimicrobial, and

    MRSA (staphylococcus), and its ability as a TRP1 agonist when shared with AEA. 

    New health benefits are being recognized and proven daily.  We promise to do our best to keep you updated!

CBC, cannabichromene, is the third greatest phytocannabinoid of the 66 cannabinoid compounds.  It is known for

    the following properties:  antibacterial, antifungal, anti inflammatory, anti microbial, antioxidant, antipsychotic,

    sedative.

CBG, cannabigerol,is a minor cannabinoid, whose precursor cannabigerolic acid CBGa, is the parent compound 

     to THC, CBD, and CBC, cannabichromene, prior to decarboxylation.It's a GABA inhibitor, antidepressant,

    potential chemotherapeutic, keratinocyte proliferation, antibiotic effects against MRSA, and

    alpha-2 adrenergic agonist, AEA reuptake inhibitor and TRPM8 antagonist. 

    Present in helichrysum umbraculigerum

CBN, cannabinerol is another minor cannabinoid that yields the following properties: analgesic, antibacterial, anticonvulsive, anti inflammatory, induces slumber.

Cannabinoid tetrad - a set of four signs in animal experiments that a substance stimulates CB1;

       hypomotility, catalepsy, analgesia, hypothermia.

Flavonoids benefits found in cannabis: anti inflammatory, antiviral, antitumorigenic, antioxidant, anti anxiety 

    and neuroregenerative 

Phenolic benefits found in cannabis are: antioxidant, neuroregenerative, antitumorigenic, antidiabetic, antiviral,

     anti obesity, and reduces chronic disease while also strengthening cardiovascular health.

THC - whole plant - appetite modulation, antidepressant, antiemetic, euphoretic, reduces

     blood pressure, gastrointestinal and sleep aid.
