Cannabinoids & Hemp: NEW Monographs

Cannabis and hemp contain many different cannabinoids. People are most familiar with THC and CBD, but other cannabinoids have also been studied for medical use. Check out our new monographs on Cannabidivarin (CBDV)Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV), and Cannabigerol (CBG) to learn more about these lesser known cannabinoids. There are also synthetic cannabinoids. Over 100 have been identified and grouped in a class called K2/Spice.

People might not realize that the cannabinoid types and quantities found in hemp and cannabis aren’t the same. So the potential medical uses of cannabis and hemp differ. Check out our new hemp monograph and review our cannabis monograph to learn more about how each variety of Cannabis might offer different medical benefits.

Research in this area is booming. Keep checking back throughout the year. We’ll be regularly adding new data to these topics as it’s available.
