The genus Cannabis, commonly classified into the species Cannabis Indica, Cannabis Sativa L. and Cannabis ruderalis, has been an important crop throughout all human history for food, fiber, and medicine purposes since ancient times.
Viewed as the most eco-friendly and highly sustainable crop, hemp now is surrounded of renewal interest for its multi-purpose applications.
Recent technological advances and ongoing international research on its potential therapeutic efficacy, have finally highlighted the countless possible uses of any part of the plant, as new ecological and natural source of innovative materials suitable for any kind of use.
The use of hemp fiber to include the production of carbon nanosheets,plastics,3D printer filaments, oil absorbent materials and construction concrete. The use of hemp fiber to include the production of carbon nanosheets,plastics,3D printer filaments, oil absorbent materials and construction concrete.
Multipurpose hemp for industrial bioproducts and biomass, processing techniques to produce high-quality composites, insulation materials made of renewable resources as an alternative material to synthetic thermal insulation materials and they exhibit low energy consumption during the production, consume a minimum of resources and producing a minimum or hardly any industrial waste if compared to materials like mineral fibrous insulating and foam plastics (Murphy et al. 1999).
Additionally, hemp produces over 100 known cannabinoids, most notably CBD. Clinical trials are pushing this plant investigating CBD and other cannabinoids for treatment of 26 medical conditions. Furthermore, CBD has been granted orphan drug status for eleven conditions.
Cannabinoids represent the most studied group of compounds, thanks to their wide range of therapeutic and healthy benefits and to the versatile nature of the hemp plant.
Cannabinoids, terpenes and other molecules not yet fully scientifically studied or discovered can play an important role in the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical industry giving a new role to hemp plant in both sectors. Genetic modification could enable industrial-scale production of cannabinoids that have pharmaceutical potential.
Hemp has a wide range of benefits on human health, is a raw material environmental friendly alternative compared to polluting industrial raw materials, new hemp product categories and sectors are growing everywhere in the world, creating notable advantages to industry, end consumer and the society.
Cannabidiol is one of the major non-psychotropic cannabinoid. It has many biological effects, beyond those linked to the endocannabinoid system and it does not exert any significant intrinsic activity on the cannabinoid receptors. CBD does not cause psychotomimetic and anxiogenic effects or create dependence after repeated use. It has a better safety profile than other cannabinoids, such as THC. For instance, high doses of CBD are well tolerated in animals and humans.
Cannabigerol, or CBG, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid. Laboratory analysis has found that CBG exists in industrial hemp in much higher levels than other strains of cannabis.Recent scientific research has shown that CBG is effective in the treatment of a variety of symptoms and conditions and its medical properties is currently continuing. CBG is known to be a potent anti-bacterial, works to fight inflammation, pain, nausea.
Terpenes are small, volatile chemical agents used by the cannabis plant for a multitude of reasons. They have individual aromatic profile along with several proved healthy effects.
Pinene is a bronchodilator and has analgesic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, and antioxidant effects.
Linalool has a floral scent with spicy overtones and has analgesic, antidepressant, anti-epileptic, anti-inflammatory, anti-psychotic, anxiolytic, and sedative effects.
Myrcene has earthy, fruity notes and analgesic, antibacterial, anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory, anti-insomnia, anti-proliferative/ant-mutagenic, anti psychotic, and antispasmodic effects.
Limonene has a strong citrus odor. It has antidepressant, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, anxiolytic, gasto-pesphageal reflux (reduces acid reflux), immunostimulant effects.
Caryophyllene has analgesic, antibacterial, antidepressant, anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, antioxidant, anxiolitic, analgesic, and neuroprotective effects.
Cannabinoids are the most important compounds in cannabis. They are responsible for the plant’s benefical properties.
The big six cannabinoids are THC, CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC and THCA. These six cannabinoids have been studied extensively and have been found to have a variety of benefical effects.
While many minor cannabinoids are often confused with the big six cannabinoids, small changes in a cannabinoid’s structure can cause vastly different benefical effects. They are also usually present in much smaller amounts than other cannabinoids.
However, there is much interest in these smaller cannabinoids for their benefical effects (when they have them in the first instance). Expect to see a more significant number of varieties with richer concentrations of these minor cannabinoids in the future.
What Is Cannabichromene (CBC)?
Cannabichromene (CBC) is a lesser-known cannabinoid that is found in the cannabis plant. While it’s not as popular as CBD or THC, CBC has shown promising signs of benefical potential.
Discovered in the 1960s, cannabichromene (CBC) is the third most prominent cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant, behind CBD and THC. However, CBC remains obscure, and it’s not well understood. What is known, however, is that CBC has significant potential to treat inflammation and could be immensely useful in the reduction of pain.
We also know that CBC works in tandem with other cannabinoids like THC, CBD, CBG and CBN, which ultimately boosts their anti-inflammatory and other benefical effects. This contribution to the so called entourage effect makes CBC a very versatile cannabinoid and one that merits further study.
In a recent review published by Frontiers in Pharmacology (2018), researchers discuss how cannabichromene (CBC) can be used for pain management in addition to its potential for treating cancer-related inflammation.
What Is THCV (tetrahydrocannabivarin) ?
THCV, or tetrahydrocannabivarin, is a chemical compound found inside the cannabis plant.
In United States it has been nicknamed “diet weed” because seems has a potential to suppress appetite and aid in weight loss.
What Is CBN (Cannabinol)?
Cannabinol (CBN) is a cannabis compound that some consider to be one of the most underrated cannabinoids. It’s no secret that CBN is the “sleepy cannabinoid”.
Still, there is much debate surrounding CBN’s effects.
Unlike many other cannabinoids, cannabinol (CBN) does not stem from cannabigerol (CBG). Instead, CBN is a tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) metabolite formed as cannabis ages. THC degrades into CBN over time and exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. THCA converts into cannabinolic acid (CBNA), converted into CBN when decarboxylated or heated.
Unlike THC, CBN doesn’t have any psychoactive effect.
It’s no secret that CBN is the “sleepy cannabinoid.”
CBN could be useful as a supplemental treatment for the following issues:
In addition, CBN shows even greater promise than THC and CBD as a neuroprotectant and treatment for glaucoma.
What Is CBDV (Cannabidivarin)?
Also known as cannabidivarol or CBDV, is one of over 100 cannabinoids identified from the Cannabis plant.
These molecules, commonly referred to as cannabinoids, are partially responsible for the many benefical benefits cannabis has to offer.
CBDV is structurally similar to CBD (cannabidiol). Like CBD, CBDV is not intoxicating when isolated, so it won’t cause the euphoric high associated with high-THC cannabis.
Research has so far shown that CBDV is found primarily in landrace Cannabis Indica strains from Asia and Africa, as well as sativa hemp strains that are naturally lower in THC. Usually high CBD hemp sativa varieties with thc <0.2% generally also tend to have higher concentrations in CBDV.
What Is Cannabielsoin (CBE)?
CBE is derived from CBD and may offer many of the same benefits. The cannabinoid works with CBD, other cannabinoids, and flavonoids to activate the so called entourage effect.
What Is Cannabicyclol (CBL)?
CBL is found in extremely low levels in cannabis and is poorly understood. Most cannabis strains contain only trace amounts of CBL if any.
