Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids

Wine or Grape Juice

THC can get someone ‘High’, like Wine.  Non-psychoactive cannabinoids (such as CBD) provide the relief of cannabis without the ‘High’, like Grape Juice.

Cannabis does not become psychoactive until the THCa is decarboxylated, heated over 240 F and becomes THC.  THC is the only cannabinoid that really gets someone ‘High’.   Other cannabinoids have much less of a psychoactive effect, if any.

Without THC, other Cannabis Nutrients can be absorbed into the body easier.  By eliminating THC, you get more non-psychoactive cannabinoids to bind to the CB1 & CB2 receptors.  THC has the highest bonding affinity so it will displace other cannabinoids.  By eliminating/reducing THC, other Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids can bind more effectively.

CBD (Cannabidiol), the best known Non-Psychoactive Cannabis Nutrient, is one of more than 400 compounds in Cannabis.  Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids Nutrients includes CBD, CBN, CBG, CBC and over 100 more cannabinoids;  over 100 terpenes, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, flavonoids, adaptogens, and chloroplasts.

Whole Cannabis Plant: The Entourage Effect

Cannabinoid Nutrients are present throughout the whole plant. The flowers or buds have the highest concentration, followed by leaves and stems.  Medicines made from these parts are more effective than single cannabinoid such as CBD based products.  Mixing multiple whole plants together provides a greater mix of cannabinoid nutrients.  The Entourage of Cannabis Nutrients lets the body get the Cannabis it needs, where it needs it.

Different parts of the body may need different cannabinoid nutrients at the same t time.  The cellular expression of C1 and CB2 receptors changes the bonding affinity to attract different cannabis nutrients.  Different cellular expression calls for different cannabinoids.

CECD Patients need to rotate their cannabis strains regularly to get continued benefit.  No matter how good to start, after a week or so, it does not help.  Each cannabis strain has a unique set of cannabinoids with its unique effect on the body.  By changing and mixing different sets of cannabinoids, the neurological/immune system is constantly adapting.  Cannabinoid Rotation for CECD is similar to Opiate Rotation for Pain Management.

Fresh, Raw Cannabis (from multiple plants) is the best source of the complete Cannabis Entourage Effect of Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids.  Products made from Fresh, Raw Cannabis are the next best source of Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids.

Avoid Heated products because heat drives off the volatile nutrients and may decarboxylate the THCa.  Cannabinoids freeze at 40F.  If Cannabinoids are kept under 40F, they are very stable.  Beverages made from fresh, raw material then kept frozen, would be the most stable form of Cannabis nutrients.
