If you had to guess how many cannabinoids are found within the cannabis plant, what number would you go with?

However, other phyto-cannabinoids that have made recent waves in the medical world include CBN, THCV, and cannabigerol (or CBG for short). Keep reading to find out more about CBG in particular, its health benefits, and which cannabis products contain CBG.

Although cannabis is an extremely unique plant that contains numerous medicinal properties and benefits, there are certain instances where you do just truly get too high. When this happens, you can feel uncomfortable, uneasy, and even paranoid or anxious depending on the situation. As compared to other consumption methods, cannabis edibles high in THC are the most common products that can be accidentally over-consumed. After ingesting cannabis edibles, the effects may not hit until an hour or several hours later. As a result, it's common for individuals to consume more pieces of the cannabis edible and/or a higher dosage in an effort to feel the effects at a faster rate. However, this isn't the best way to consume cannabis edibles, nor is this the safest. Let’s take a look at what to do after accidentally consuming too many cannabis edibles and/or too high of a dosage.

Cannabis use has been banned from Olympic events since 1998, when Canadian snowboarder and gold medal winner Ross Rebagliati tested positive for trace amounts of marijuana during the Nagano Winter Olympics. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) even went so far as to strip Rebagliati of his medal, a move that was later overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport on the grounds that marijuana testing had not been a requirement of the Nagano Games. While Rebagliati retained his gold medal, he was also fueled with a desire to change the understanding of marijuana and cannabis use internationally.

Cannabis topicals are a hot item, and for good reason. Not everyone who consumes cannabis wants to get blazed all the time. Many individuals suffering from pain and inflammation use cannabis for the relief it delivers straight to the source. When a cannabis topical is applied to the skin, it's absorbed locally and interacts with cannabinoid receptors in the area. That means fast-acting relief from pain and inflammation, and no psychoactive effects to bog you down. The thing is, not all topicals are created equal; and when you're paying good money for them, you want to be sure they work!

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of many cannabinoid compounds found in marijuana. While most people are familiar with the THC that gets you high, recreational users don't necessarily go out of their way to access cannabis that's high in CBD. CBD is widely known as the more medicinal component to weed, and has been shown to impact pain, inflammation, and a multitude of other unpleasant symptoms in a positive way. Most famously, CBD is often used in treating childhood epilepsy that's proven to be resistant to other forms of treatment. But it's also the preferred cannabinoid for people looking to treat everyday symptoms like headache pain, insomnia, or anxiety. Others swear by the balancing effect CBD has on high-THC cannabis products. Whatever your motivation, it's certainly worth finding out what CBD strains can do for you!

Although Texas is a relatively conservative U.S. state and one whose lawmakers enact more conservative laws and policies than not, they have been surprisingly forward-moving on medical marijuana legalization.
