A healthy diet means having all the variety. This means having a wide range of foods for the full range of vitamins and nutrients.
But a healthy diet also means having cannabinoids like THC and CBD.
It is natural for us humans to produce cannabinoids within our bodies. In fact, all animals produce cannabinoids and have an endocannabinoid system (ECS), which interacts with cannabinoids to regulate our pain, inflammation, immune system, mood and thinking.
Thus, just like vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, cannabinoids can be just as essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
CBD vs multiple cannabinoids
CBD is only one of more than 100 different cannabinoids found in cannabis. THC, CBDV, CBG, THCV, CBN, CBC, CBGV. The list is long. Each cannabinoid may have its own beneficial effects on health, and therefore not taking advantage of these other cannabinoids may mean not benefiting from beneficial effects that the CBD alone may not provide.
Just as nature never wanted us to have only one vitamin, it never wanted us to have only one cannabinoid.
Although CBD can help manage sleep, chronic pain and anxiety, it may not be as effective as other rarer cannabinoids such as CBG, CBDV or THCV for some diseases.
GBC can have powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which could be beneficial for problems such as IBS, colitis and acne. CBDV can be very effective as an acne care agent and could have powerful neuroprotective effects for people suffering from nausea or epilepsy. THCV, a rare and exclusive cannabinoid, may be a more potent anti-inflammatory agent than CBD. THCV can also be a greater anxiety suppressor, in addition to the potential benefits for weight loss while stimulating mental clarity.
