Cannabinoids: a guide to getting the most out of cannabis as your medicine

January 3rd, 2017

The two cannabinoids that have received the most attention have been tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). But did you know that, currently, there are 113 other known cannabinoids in cannabis?

At BPG, we test and label all of our products for 5 different cannabinoids: THC, CBD, CBN, THC-A and CBD-A. We do this because each cannabinoid provides a unique medicinal benefit to the patient.

It is our belief that patients can take full control of their healing by understanding how different cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids work together to affect their mind and body.

Understanding these concepts can help you tailor your medicine to your own specific ailments, which will ultimately lead to a more therapeutic choice in treatment and overall healthier living.
