Cannabinoids, the new "well-being" allies of the French
More than just a soothing and relaxing plant, hemp is a true elixir of well-being. Full of molecules that wish you good, Cannabis L. Sativa has not finished revealing its secrets, gratifying our body and mind with a thousand and one virtues! By eliminating THC, the molecule responsible for the psychotropic or "high" effect, the hemp plant shines with soothing and relaxing properties, anti-inflammatory effects and pain-relieving properties. Objective: to improve your quality of life naturally, on a daily basis, and without the risk of addiction.
In France, nearly 7 million consumers have already been seduced by CBD products, the flagship molecule of the hemp plant. They favor CBD oils, cannabidiol flowers, hemp crystals, but also more playful and gourmet products such as candies, chewing gum and e-liquids filled with cannabinoids of the Cannabis L variety. .Sativaor Cannabis Indica.
CBG, CBN, CBD, CBC… what are we talking about?
If the hemp plant has found its place in cosmetics, health and well-being products, it is because it has an exceptional composition. It contains mainly cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids.
Cannabinoids are molecules that act on the "CB" receptors of the endocannabinoid system of humans and other mammals to express anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, soothing, and antioxidant effects:
- Cannabigerol, or CBG. Of all the cannabinoids in the hemp plant, CBG is arguably the easiest to extract. Unlike CBD, which acts on the central nervous system, the action of cannabigerol seems to focus on the periphery of the body. The soothing, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects are therefore exerted on the muscles and the digestive system.
- The cannabidiol, or CBD. It is the best-known molecule in the cannabinoid spectrum of the hemp plant. Available in hemp oils, edibles, and cosmetics, CBD is valued for its soothing, anti-inflammatory, and pain-relieving effects. It contributes to the relief of stress and anxiety, to the improvement of the quality of sleep and to the relief of muscle and joint pain.
- The cannabinol, or CBN. Of all the cannabinoids in the Cannabis L. Sativa plant, CBN is the least abundant and the most difficult to isolate. Oils and other topical products that display a high concentration of CBN are usually made from a process of converting CBD to CBN. It would have an antibacterial, neuroprotective and soothing effect, with a profile very close to THC, without psychotropic effect and without risk of addiction.
- Cannabichromene, or CBC. This molecule is very close to CBD. In hemp oils, CBC is mainly used to enhance the action of cannabidiol.
- Others cannabinoids: CBL (cannabicyclol) and CBDL (cannabidiolol) enhance the anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects of other cannabinoids.
The hemp plant (Cannabis L. Sativa and Cannabis Indica) also contains terpenes and flavonoids.
- terpenes are aromatic compounds that give plants odor, taste and pharmacological properties . In the hemp plant, terpenes provide anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antioxidant effects.
- flavonoids are natural phytochemicals that act against free radicals to prevent premature aging. Flavonoids also have anti-inflammatory properties and can help regulate the body's immune response.
Note: so-called "Full Spectrum" hemp oils contain all the cannabinoids, terpenes and flavonoids of the hemp plant from which they are extracted (with the exception of THC). So, depending on the dosage, you will have a greater or lesser amount of CBG in a full-spectrum CBD oil. Full spectrum hemp oil activates the famous "entourage effect", with tenfold benefits due to the synergistic action between all the natural cannabinoids of the hemp plant (excluding THC).
CBG oil: what are the benefits?
Because of its chemical profile similar to CBD, the cannabinoid to which it is closest, CBG gives you comparable benefits, with one nuance:
- Soothing and relaxing effects, to soothe bodies suffering from stress and anxiety;
- These soothing properties also improve the quality of sleep by accelerating the phase of falling asleep. Like CBD oil, CBG oil reduces symptoms of REM sleep disorder, including nighttime talking and muscle spasms;
- Analgesic effects, relieving acute or chronic pain that affects your quality of life. Unlike CBD, CBG oil acts more on the periphery of the body, calming muscle, joint and digestive pain;
- Anti-inflammatory effects, especially in the muscles, joints and digestive system;
- CBG oil is also an excellent antioxidant. The product fights against free radicals to prevent premature aging.
Please note: the benefits of cannabidiol, cannabigerol and other cannabinoids from the hemp plant continue to be investigated by the scientific community. To find out more, we advise you to take a look at our blog, where we regularly present the results of the latest studies in this area.
CBG oil: our tips for use
Like all hemp oils, CBG oil can be used in 4 different ways (depending on the product):
- The sublingual route: just place a few drops of CBG oil under the tongue, wait a minute and swallow the remaining product, if necessary. The sublingual route activates the effects of cannabigerol very quickly, just a few minutes after use.
- The direct oral route, by swallowing a few drops of CBG oil;
- The indirect oral route, by depositing a few drops of CBG oil in your daily meals and drinks (after cooking);
- The topical route, in particular in a massage oil.
Note that the oral route (direct and indirect) dilutes and delays the effects of CBG oil by several hours. The dosage depends on your weight, your goal and the sensitivity of your endocannabinoid system to cannabigerol.
Are CBG oils legal in France?
Like hemp products, cannabigerol (CBG) oil can be freely marketed in France, provided it displays a THC level of less than 0.2%, in accordance with the regulations in force.
