About CBD, CBG and CBN

Whole Care CBD utilizes full spectrum hemp CBD. CBD is one of the most studied cannabinoids, known for its anti-inflammatory properties, as well as its ability to relieve stress and anxiety. 

CBD works within the body’s endocannabinoid system which has an important role in the central nervous system. CBD specifically targets the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the system. The CB1 receptor modulates neurotransmission which can affect anxiety and depression. The CB2 receptor is a regulator of inflammation and modulates immune cells.

Full Spectrum CBD has the added support from terpenes and a range of cannabinoids found in hemp. We especially focus on CBG and CBN in our products. When these cannabinoids are combined, their benefits are increased in what is known as the entourage effect.

On their own, CBG and CBN provide mild results. When combined with CBD, the benefits of CBG and CBN increase because of the specific receptors they specifically bind to. 
CBG binds to the CB1 receptor which can enhance motivation and pleasure. 
CBN binds to the CB2 receptor where it can boost relaxation and pain relief.

Hemp CBD is derived from industrial grade hemp and is not psychoactive because it contains 0.0 – 0.3% THC.
