There are hundreds of cannabinoids found within both hemp and marijuana. While all play their part, all are unique in their own way. Cannabinodiol, or CBND for short, is a unique, though still mysterious, cannabinoid.
Discovered in 1977, CBND was originally thought to have been part of another cannabinoid structure. However, this was corrected though very little research has been done until recent years. This is in part due to its being a minor cannabinoid, meaning only small traces of CBND are found in cannabis plants.
According to About Cannabis Extracts, "Cannabinodiol is one of the few cannabinoids to be psychotropic per se, together with tetrahydrocannabinol ( THC ), cannabinol and possibly tetrahydrocannabivarin."
Due to its small appearance and complicated past, we don't know much else about CBND. According to a 2017 article archived by the National Library of Medicine, "There is no available experimental data at present related to its pharmacological action on specific targets."
Thanks to advancements in science, we have the tools available to study minor cannabinoids such as CBL, CBC, and CBND. Each cannabinoid has its own set of unique properties that work together. By discovering how each cannabinoid interacts with our endocannabinoid system, we can unlock new ways of looking at our health, and the world, differently.
