CBD, CBG & CBN Molecules

What is the Difference Between CBD, CBG, and CBN? | Botanicraft Extracts

Cannabinoids have become increasingly popular in recent years. You may have heard of the most well-known cannabinoid, CBD (cannabidiol). But did you know that there are other cannabinoids such as CBG (cannabigerol) and CBN (cannabinol)? In this blog post, we will discuss the differences between these three cannabinoids and how they can be used.

CBD vs CBG vs CBN - What’s the Difference?

CBD (cannabidiol) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid which means it does not cause a “high” like THC does. CBD has been researched for its potential therapeutic properties such as reducing anxiety and inflammation. It is available in many forms such as oils, tinctures, capsules, edibles, topical creams and more.

CBG (cannabigerol) is another non-psychoactive cannabinoid that has similar effects to CBD but with fewer side effects. Studies have shown that it can help to reduce inflammation and nausea as well as having anti-bacterial properties. It can also be used to treat certain eye conditions like glaucoma due to its vasodilator properties.

CBN (cannabinol) is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid derived from THC degradation. While it does not produce the same “high” feeling as THC, it can still produce mild euphoric effects when taken in larger doses. It has been found to be useful in treating insomnia due to its sedative effect when combined with other cannabinoids such as CBD and CBG. It is usually found in aged cannabis products such as flower or extracts since it takes time for THC to break down into CBN.


In conclusion, CBD, CBG, and CBN all provide different benefits depending on what you are looking for. All three cannabinoids are non-psychoactive which makes them safe for consumers who want to avoid the psychoactive effects of THC while still taking advantage of their potential benefits. Whether you are looking for relief from anxiety or want something more potent like a sedative effect from your cannabis product, these three cannabinoids may be able to provide what you need! So make sure you do your research before making any decisions about which cannabinoid product is best suited for your needs!
