Two of the best known are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and CBD. Although THC is the cannabinoid that causes the “euphoric feeling” that many people associate with cannabis, research suggests that CBD may help relieve inflammation, among other things. CBD has been researched for its ability to prevent inflammation more than perhaps any other cannabinoid. Cannabis scientists are very interested in the ability of CBD to help combat inflammation, and there is general consensus that CBD is a better research target in this direction than THC, which has very different properties.
One of the most popular, and possibly the best, marijuana strains for inflammation is CBD Shark or CBD Blue Shark. As an indica-dominant strain, CBD Shark provides the physical relaxation effects that are often desired, without causing complete body loss. An equal proportion of CBD and THC helps this strain to produce balanced effects. With a unique combination of cannabinoids and terpenes that includes myrcene, pinene and limonene, all known for their calming and stimulating effects, CBD Shark usually helps those dealing with pain, anxiety and discomfort caused by skin irritation and inflammation.
An herbal, fruity aroma and flavor come together right away to ease that unwanted tension and discomfort. Research shows that cannabis can reduce inflammation by using cannabinoids to suppress inflammatory responses in the body. However, the extent to which each cannabinoid can provide relief from inflammation is a topic of debate, and very few cannabinoid-based medications have been approved for any medical condition, inflammation-based or otherwise. Many people have discovered that cannabinoids are effective solutions to their inflammation problems, and it's worth listening to their voices as you develop your own opinions on the subject.
However, more research is needed to fully understand if these cannabinoids may be more beneficial and why when they act together in harmony through the entourage effect, rather than as individual components. Like CBD and CBG, the non-intoxicating cannabinoid CBC may also show promise as an anti-inflammatory substance. While it's difficult to say definitively which cannabinoid is the best for inflammation, many believe that CBD, CBG and THCA possess and express anti-inflammatory properties. If you've experimented with cannabis before, it may be more useful to reflect on which strains have helped you in the past and what cannabinoids are present in them.
The term “hemp oil” most commonly refers to a substance called hemp seed oil, which is extracted from inert seeds rather than the cannabinoid-rich flowers of the hemp plant. Eligible studies that evaluated the effect of cannabinoids on inflammation in animal models were included in the analysis. Most research on CBG and inflammation has focused on its potential utility in treating inflammatory diseases of the digestive system and, as a less popular cannabinoid, there is still little research on the potential of CBG to combat inflammation. Make sure your hemp product contains high concentrations of cannabinoids before using it to treat inflammatory conditions.
From pain to anxiety to creativity, each cannabinoid has unique properties based on the desired effects. Whether you vape hemp flower in a dry herb vaporizer or vaping distilled hemp extract, both methods completely prevent incineration and instead release cannabinoids in the form of vapor.
