The ABCs of CBD, CBN and CBG

Gone are the days when CBD was the only non-intoxicating cannabinoid; cannabis connoisseurs can now also choose CBN and CBG. But which one is right for you? We give you the 420 on each of these cannabinoids and the new products we have in-store.

CBD (Cannabidiol)
CBD needs no introduction. It’s by far the most well-known, and easiest-to-find cannabinoid and second most prominent compound within cannabis. Unlike THC, CBD doesn’t produce a high or intoxication as it doesn’t bind to the receptors in your Endocannabinoid System (ECS) the same way as THC. In fact, the World Health Organization stated “there is no evidence of…any public health related problems associated with the use of pure CBD.” It is reported to help with anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and even addiction. CBD can be infused into a wide
range of wellness-focused products, such as oils, capsules, topicals, beverages, gummies and chocolates. If you’re new to CBD, CBN or CBG, a good place to start is with gummies – available in a variety of flavors and micro dosed to suit your needs, whether to boost your routine or wind down your day.

New and Now:
Wildflower CBD Relief Stick: features a high concentration of CBD, blended with coconut oil, shea butter, and therapeutic essential oils such as arnica and wintergreen. The texture and stick applicator allow for easy and targeted application, while peppermint and eucalyptus result in Relief Stick’s signature lasting scent. Monjour Berry Good Day and Sunny Day Citrus CBD Soft Chews: Greet each day and make it your own with a gummy that contains 20mg CBD each and 30 pieces per pack for a total of 600 mg CBD. Monjour’s gummies are vegan-friendly and gluten-free using 95% CBD isolate resulting in little or no cannabis flavour and consistent potency. Available in two flavour
assortments: blueberry, strawberry, and wild berry or lemon, lime and orange. CBN (Cannabinol) CBN (cannabinol) is a derivative of the popular CBD. Initially, both cannabinoids were well- researched; ultimately, CBD became more mainstream. Similar to THC, CBN also binds to your body's CB1 receptors. However, CBN interacts with these receptors with only around one-tenth the strength of THC. This is one of the primary reasons that the CBN cannabinoid does not give you the sensation of being high. Like CBG, it may have antibacterial benefits. There is also
evidence it may also provide neuroprotective benefits. Perhaps most interesting is its potential to increase appetite and therefore serve as a non-intoxicating replacement for THC, which can also stimulate hunger. Like the other cannabinoids above, it may also have pain-relieving properties.

New and Now:
Northbound Cannabis CBN Dosidos x Purple Punch Vape Cartridge: Has a high CBN formulation with an indica dominant hybrid inspired by Slurricane a collaboration between Dosidos X Purple Punch, creating a sweet, citrus-berry and creamy aroma that focuses on terpenes. Compatible with 510 thread devices.

Sunshower Blue Moon 2:1 CBN Gummies: Sunshower CBN Blueberry Moon is bursting with the taste of fresh blueberries, 2mg CBN and a 1mg microdose of THC so you can slide into the moonrise with no cannabis aftertaste. There are 10 microdose gummies in every pack making it easy to find the right dose for your perfect night.

CBG (Cannabigerol)
CBG (cannabigerol) is the simplest cannabinoid to extract from CBGa and is stable once converted meaning it won’t transform into any other cannabinoid. It, too, produces similar effects to CBD; however, CBG affects different neuroreceptors and therefore may have different benefits. There has been evidence that CBG may help fight both pain and inflammation. Research has also been conducted on its possible digestive and antibacterial
benefits, and it may also help with sleep.

New and Now:
Fleurish Panakeia (Pure CBG Flower): The only strain with just CBG currently available in Canada, this light flower will help sooth your mind and body without the psychoactive components of THC. Expect light green buds with visible crystals all over, with a light earthy, herbal smell with a gentle undercurrent of mint. These same flavours come out when burned as a subtle flavour. Perfect on its own or when combined with your favourite other strains to allow the CBG to counteract the less desirable traits of THC.
