When you buy broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD gummies online, you’ll gain the benefit of not only consuming CBD but other minor cannabinoids like CBG and CBN, too. That’s because these CBD formulas contain ‘whole-plant’ extract from hemp plants, and all the natural compounds and cannabinoids they produce. However, the other cannabinoids will be in much smaller amounts than the CBD so some companies will add additional CBN or CBG so consumers may get the benefit of those cannabinoids.
So, what’s the difference between CBD, CBG, and CBN? Each is its own individual cannabinoid, with its own unique effects. Of the three, CBD is the most researched, and we know it is capable of producing anti-inflammatory, anxiolytic, analgesic, and antioxidant types of effects.
CBN is found in lesser concentrations in hemp plants and is known for producing sedative effects ideal for nighttime use or sleep benefits. CBG is also found in lesser concentrations, but more abundant than CBN, and is being found to treat anxiety and depression symptoms and relieve muscle soreness.
