CBD: Exploring the Different Types found in Cannabis and Their Benefits

CBD may be the unsung hero of cannabis and can be attributed to help lots of conditions.


As we know, cannabis is a complex plant that contains many different chemicals, including CBD (cannabidiol). However, there are other types of CBD chemicals found in cannabis that can have unique effects and benefits.





In this blog, we will explore some of the other types of CBD chemicals found in cannabis, their effects and benefits, and common strains that contain large amounts of these chemicals.


This magic plant contains many different chemicals, including various types of CBD chemicals, each with their unique effects and benefits. While CBD is the most well-known cannabinoid, there are other cannabinoids like CBG, CBC, CBN, THCV, CBDV, and Delta-8-THC that can have potential health benefits.


  1. CBG (Cannabigerol): CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is found in small amounts in most strains of cannabis. It has been shown to have potential benefits for reducing inflammation, pain, and anxiety. CBG is also believed to have potential benefits for treating glaucoma and inflammatory bowel disease. Some common strains that contain high levels of CBG include White CBG and Super CBG.

  2. CBC (Cannabichromene): CBC is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is found in small amounts in most strains of cannabis. It has been shown to have potential benefits for reducing inflammation, pain, and anxiety. CBC is also believed to have potential benefits for treating acne and depression. Some common strains that contain high levels of CBC include Hawaiian Dream and Sweet Skunk.

  3. CBN (Cannabinol): CBN is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid that is found in small amounts in most strains of cannabis. It has been shown to have potential benefits for reducing pain, inflammation, and anxiety. CBN is also believed to have potential benefits for treating insomnia and glaucoma. Some common strains that contain high levels of CBN include Critical Mass and Bubba Kush.

  4. THCV (Tetrahydrocannabivarin): THCV is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid that is found in small amounts in most strains of cannabis. It has been shown to have potential benefits for reducing appetite, promoting bone growth, and treating diabetes. THCV is also believed to have potential benefits for treating anxiety and PTSD. Some common strains that contain high levels of THCV include Doug's Varin and Pineapple Purps.

  5. CBDV (Cannabidivarin): CBDV is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid that is found in small amounts in most strains of cannabis. It has been shown to have potential benefits for reducing seizures, inflammation, and anxiety. CBDV is also believed to have potential benefits for treating autism and multiple sclerosis. Some common strains that contain high levels of CBDV include Blueberry Cheesecake and Critical Kush.

  6. Delta-8-THC (Delta-8-Tetrahydrocannabinol): Delta-8-THC is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid that is found in small amounts in most strains of cannabis. It has been shown to have potential benefits for reducing nausea, anxiety, and pain. Delta-8-THC is also believed to have potential benefits for treating glaucoma and appetite loss. Some common strains that contain high levels of Delta-8-THC include Delta-8 Kush and Blue Dream.




Oh, and there are different types of CBD... for a little extra edification.


  1. Full-spectrum CBD: Full-spectrum CBD contains all of the compounds found in the cannabis plant, including THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), other cannabinoids, and terpenes. This type of CBD has been shown to have the most potential health benefits due to the "entourage effect," where the compounds work together to enhance each other's effects. Common strains that contain high levels of full-spectrum CBD include ACDC and Harlequin.

  2. Broad-spectrum CBD: Broad-spectrum CBD contains all of the compounds found in full-spectrum CBD except for THC. This type of CBD can still have the potential health benefits of full-spectrum CBD without the psychoactive effects of THC. Common strains that contain high levels of broad-spectrum CBD include Charlotte's Web and Cannatonic.

  3. CBD isolate: CBD isolate is the purest form of CBD, where all other compounds have been removed. This type of CBD is typically used for medical purposes and has been shown to have potential benefits for anxiety, pain relief, and epilepsy. However, CBD isolate does not have the potential benefits of the other compounds found in full-spectrum CBD or broad-spectrum CBD. Common strains that contain high levels of CBD isolate include Cherry Wine and Elektra.

  4. Nano CBD: Nano CBD is a form of CBD that has been broken down into tiny particles for easier absorption by the body. This type of CBD has been shown to have faster onset times and stronger effects than other types of CBD. Common strains that contain high levels of nano CBD include Hawaiian Haze and Sour Space Candy.

  5. Water-soluble CBD: Water-soluble CBD is a type of CBD that can dissolve in water, making it easier to mix into drinks and other products. This type of CBD has been shown to have faster onset times and stronger effects than


It is important to note that more research is needed to fully understand the effects of these CBD chemicals on the human body. Always consult with a healthcare professional before using cannabis or any cannabis-derived products for medical purposes.
