New Cannabinoids Trending: CBG and CBN. What Do They Do?

The CBD Ed Show

In this show we’ll discuss these Cannabinoids in depth to understand why they are trending and how they benefit us.

Here is a full transcript of the show, or if you would like to listen to the show, see below.

Introduction

Welcome to the CBD Ed show with Edward Chaney, the founder and CEO of Cannafyl, a manufacturer of CBD infused products for human and pet consumption. In this program, we will discuss the uses of CBD and other methods for alternatives and compliments to conventional medical treatment. Now here’s your host Ed Chaney.

Ed:

Welcome to the CBD Ed show. I’m your host Ed Chaney.  Also, the CEO of Cannafyl, who brings clinical level CBD to the retail market.   The purpose of this show is to deliver reliable and relevant CBD knowledge in an industry that is still unregulated. We do that because literally anybody could say anything they wanted about what was in their product or what it was capable of doing.  For the most part, I don’t have an issue with that, but what I am doing on this show is delivering information that is research based.  Then you at least have the ability, with the information you have obtained here, to use that on your internet search and so forth.  So today we will be discussing new cannabinoids that are making a splash in the CBD market.  The most popular cannabinoids being talked about are CBG, CBN and THCv.   These cannabinoids have been around for a while, but they have been lightly studied until recently.  We now know that these cannabinoids are coming.  So today we’re going to let you know what they are and how they might benefit us or what their potentials are.

But first, I want to share something with you guys. So, on Wednesday of this week, the Andre house of Phoenix which by the way, is an outfit that provides shelter, food, etc…. and tries to support the homeless community in the Phoenix  Metropolitan area, that’s the Andre house. Well, they put out a request on Wednesday for water contributions. Why, because Phoenix had record heat this week. I’m sure, if you are not in an air conditioned environment, you’re out on the street, that’s gotta be crazy uncomfortable.

Anyway, we went there with a bunch of water, and noticed all the tents, noticed all the frustration of the people walking around that were homeless.   My team has actually been there a number of times over the last three years, but this was a little different. Another thing we recognized is the amount of anxiety amongst everyone.  This anxiety comes from dealing with the elements outside and in some there’s problems with either drug addiction or, anxiety from all of the current situation with COVID.   We could see it in their behavior and their actions. Well, when we were there on Wednesday, it really was pronounced and we understood why the anxiety has increased mainly because of the high temperatures on top of COVID.   This time around it was much bigger.  And I think it’s bigger because it’s also being fueled by the heat.  I think it’s also that we are dealing with a racism issue on top of everything else and its just even adding more anxiety. Then we also have the elections coming up in November. So, as I looked around, I do see a lot, a lot more anxiety than even when we first went into quarantine. I think from a caring place, we offered the Andre house a supply of free CBD products because CBD products are known to assist and relieve anxiety as well as they’re often used as a resource during addiction treatment.

I might also suggested everybody to take a look around and try to be a little nicer to your fellow man, maybe take care of yourself and, just be aware, maybe you are also experiencing a high level of anxiety along with everybody else.  So give thought, treat it, and let’s see if we can get past this.  It looks like the COVID crises will be around for awhile, but I think this high anxiety won’t last very long.   So that was a little segue off, from your caring crew here at the CBD Ed show and Cannafyl.

Let’s go back to our topic today.  First, we want to understand a little bit more about the cannabis plant as it relates to today’s topic. The biggest thing about the cannabis plant is that there are two species within that cannabis line. There’s a marijuana plant and hemp plant. They both have cannabinoids like CBD and THC. They also have terpenes, flavanoids and other phyto materials. Both of these plants have them both.  What makes these two species different is the cannabinoid profile and the ratios between those plants.   Most commonly known is that that marijuana plant has extremely high THC and very low CBD.   Then the hemp plant has very high CBD and very low THC.  Which is why the marijuana plant, can provide you with a psychoactive effect and the Hemp plant will not.

It has also been discovered that both plants have over a hundred different cannabinoids.   If you send me a request, I will be happy to provide you with that list.  That would be at info@Cannafyl.com.   Anyway, that group of cannabinoids is normally divided into two groups, novel and minor. So you often will hear the term CBD and THC are novel cannabinoids. So that’s just how they have broken those two up.

Cannabigerol (CBG)

The first cannabinoid we’re going to talk about this morning that is creating a buzz in the market is CBG.  Which the actual word for that is, Cannabigerol.  So Cannabigerol, while not present in large quantities in cannabis, usually it’s about,   just less than 1%, but nonetheless it has great potential and is being heavily studied right now.  CBG commonly is also referred to as the mother of cannabinoids. It’s very interesting what happens in the cannabis plant.

So CBGa, which that molecule is an acid first, that is the first cannabinoid that is produced in the cannabis plant.   It is then the precursor to all the other cannabinoids like CBD and THC. So interestingly enough that’s why they call this the mother of cannabinoids.  Now CBG, from a biosynthetic reaction is then broken down and converted into these other cannabinoids and all these other cannabinoids, also start out as acids and then through biosynthetic reactions, like heating it up, that’s when they lose the acid form. Anyway, scientists can also extract, they have found how to extract this CBG from plants by using things like timing, like when the plant is budding and there’s an optimum extraction line, and it’s about six weeks into an eight week flowering cycle for the hemp plant.  It’s in a small percentage, but one of the ways they’ve been able to improve extraction of this cannabinoid CBG, is to time the extraction, during the plant’s flowering.

Let’s talk about the potential of CBG.  Now first, you should know CBG, has no psychological effects to humans. You can ingest CBG and will not get high. Some of the potentials of CBG, and I’m going to go down the list and then we’ll go back and read through them. How about treating glaucoma, how about decreasing inflammation? How about a neuroprotectant and even an antibacterial and then CBG, is even showing promise as a cancer fighter.   So, let’s go back and let’s talk about these.

The endocannabinoid receptors are prevalent in the eye structure. So CBG is thought to be particularly effective in treating glaucoma because it reduces the interocular pressure. Now it is a powerful Vasso dilator and has neuro-protective effects to boot. So, I had understood that the current medications for treating glaucoma are still better than CBG, but I don’t think we have discovered the full potential of it yet.

Animal testing involving CBG was found to be effective in decreasing inflammation, a characteristic of inflammatory bowel disease, which I know is very common.  Because it has anti-inflammatory properties to it, the characteristics of inflammatory bowel disease had been seen. CBG was also shown to protect neurons in mice with Huntington’s disease, which is characterized by nerve cell degeneration in the brain.

So again, CBG coming up as a neuroprotective cannabinoid and as I showed, had great promise in cancer-fighting.  Specifically, CBG was shown to block receptors that cause cancer cell growth. What we know here is cells by their nature are designed to replicate, but when they find that they are mutated, there is a gene in there that turns on, that will stop it from replicating, but when things aren’t working correctly, that gene never gets turned on, and then a mutated cell is allowed to continue to replicate and grow.  Their suggesting here that CBG has the ability to impact that through your ECS system. In one study, it was shown to inhibit the growth of colorectal cancer cells in mice. So this is for colon cancer, thereby slowing the colon cancer growth. They suggest CBG inhibited tumors as chemically induced, colon carcinogenesis, therefore demonstrating a very exciting possibility for a cure for colon cancer.

All right, there was a European research that showed evidence that CBG is an effective anti-bacterial agent.  In very recent studies, 2017 researchers show that a form of CBG was purified to remove any THC. So they took the CBG and made sure there was no THC in it. It showed that it was very effective at appetite stimulation in rats. So this may lead to a novel non-psychotropic therapeutic option for people who need their appetite stimulated. So, I see that that’s coming up now, the muscle wasting and severe weight loss seen in late stages of cancer and other diseases also would be an opportunity for CBG.

All right in a study that looked at the effects of five different cannabinoids on bladder contractions, well, CBG was tested best at inhibiting the muscle contractions. So it may be a future tool for preventing bladder dysfunction disorders.  It usually shows up as we age. So, they will be studying that I’m sure. So scientists are excited about these initial CBG results. Future research with CBG will be conducted both as an individual molecule, as well as combined with other cannabinoids. We call that the entourage effect, because CBG is non-psychotropic. CBG has a promising wide range of potential applications. Not only for the problems mentioned above, but also in therapies for psoriasis and antidepressants.  We will be keeping an eye on it as we see CBG becoming more clinically validated.  We will share this with you.  Most companies who have a full spectrum CBD product will have a low level of CBG in their products. And at the end of this show, I will remind you, I will tell you how to discover that.  Again CBG is usually in very small amounts, but it is effective.  Keep in mind CBG much like all other cannabinoids, that molecule has a very specific shape and was designed to trigger the CB receptors within your endocannabinoid system.

Alright, so before we move on to the second cannabinoid, that’s making headway in the news, which is CBN.  Let’s take a short break for our sponsors. And when we come back, we’re going to talk about CBN.

Ed:

Okay. Welcome back listeners. All right. Today’s topic, cannabinoids that are making a splash in the CBD market. Now cannabinoid information, is something we have shared with our listening audience over and over. And I just want to bring it back to light. Now that CBD over the last six years has been offered in two forms, well now, actually three forms, the simplest way to put this is CBD extracted all by itself, no other phyto material was included, is an Isolate. That was initially done because of the stigma that overtime was created with THC, which is the other popular cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. So that’s one version, CBD pulled out by itself, or CBD Isolate.  Then the second biggest version is where cannabinoids are grouped together. Not grouped together. They’re extracted in whole is the best way to put this. In other words, they’re not isolated from one another. They are only isolated from the biomass. Now, when those cannabinoids are pulled out together, clinical studies have shown over and over that the effects of these cannabinoids when they are working together, tend to be bigger, and give a more favorable outcome than when they are separated.

It’s important when we understand that these studies are coming out and almost all of them will site that we have not only researched that cannabinoid model by itself, but we’ve also researched it in compliment with the other cannabinoids present in that plant.  I think over time, especially as with the THC side of the cannabis family, the marijuana plant, once the stigma starts to wear down and people become more confident with it. I don’t think there’ll be an isolated version of CBD any longer.

I know I’m making a prediction, but that’s what I think, that’s what I believe is going to be in the future. So that’s really one of the benefits we wanted to bring up in this topic today. These new cannabinoids being studied, are being studied because they do offer a lot to us humans.  It’s triggering your endocannabinoid system inside of your body, so that the pieces in your body that are tasked with keeping you healthy.  That system can be activated by cannabinoids.

Cannabinol (CBN)

So let’s continue. Let’s talk about this next cannabinoid.  The Cannabinoid is CBN, its medical term is Cannabinol, is the right way to say that.  Alright, now CBN is non intoxicating, much like CBD. You take it, nobody’s getting high. The interesting thing about CBN is it comes from THC as THC ages. So the older, the plant, the more opportunity for CBN.  I am sure that’s currently what they understand and through cross-pollination and maybe some gene engineering they’re likely, especially if this study continues down the path it’s going, this cannabinoid has lots of potential.  I’m sure they will understand and figure out how to increase the ability to extract that molecule being CBN. CBN is probably mostly known for its sedative effects. Interestingly enough, I will likely dispel that by the end of my description on CBN. I promise to make it very clear, but first and foremost, here’s what the current research is demonstrating.

First of all, CBN has been found to be a potent antibacterial as well. It had been tested in some strains of MRSA, and MRSA bacteria that was resistant to traditional antibiotics, and it showed potential. So perhaps, maybe in the future, we’ll see CBN used in fighting bacterial infections that antibiotics can’t heal.  I’d like to even see it replace the majority of our antibiotics.

All right, we know what neural protectants are. So CBN has also shown potential in that area.  In rodent studies research, they are using CBN as a treatment for ALS. ALS is when the nerve cells break down and you see twitching and loss of muscle functionality. So that is, probably a simple way to just describe what ALS is. Again, in a recent rodent study, they use CBN as a treatment and found that it was able to delay the onset of this condition.  There’s still a lot of studies to be done, and they have suggested that current pharmaceuticals, are still better than this choice, but again, now they just started studying this.

I always expect that once they find out the potential, then they’re going to figure out how to farm it, extract it and increase its abilities.  Here’s a good switch and another appetite stimulation. So again, much like CBG. In recent studies, CBN increased the amount of food that rat subjects ate, suggesting that it could be an effective appetite stimulant.

Also, the ability to reduce the interocular pressure in the eye, which is the leading cause for glaucoma was also shown in recent studies.  Now this study specifically suggested that both CBN and THC combined was key to reducing that interocular pressure.  Alright, so keeping that in mind, when we talked earlier about CBG, they found it independently was capable.  CBN on the other hand, needed to be in entourage effect with THC. Research is definitely ongoing for this particular treatment.

How about an anti-inflammatory and they considered it as a potent anti-inflammatory, capable of helping those with rheumatoid arthritis, which is, I think, where this study was going towards. Anybody that can get relief from rheumatoid arthritis or really wants it, and if they can get it, this non-pharmaceutical solution is even better.

Alright, now let’s talk about that misconception. So its interesting, that most consider this as a treatment for like a sedative. If you have insomnia, you want CBN, but this reputation is not really accurate, and let me tell you why. So, this cannabinoid may not be responsible for that sedating effect. There are two possible reasons that this reputation is inaccurate.

All right, first it may be the combination of CBN and THC that actually causes the sedative effect. Again, referring to entourage effect, remember cannabinoids coming together, producing more outcome than if they were by themselves. This study suggested CBN and THC combined were hugely successful in creating a sedative effect. They suggested, in this same study, that pure CBN was not particularly sedating was their quote. This was a neurologist, Dr. Ethan Russo, he suggested an older cannabis plant that is high in CBN is also high in sedating terpenes. Alright. So remember, CBN is often from THC aging by the way. That means an older cannabis plant…… or an older cannabis plant has well developed terpene profiles.  Terpene profiles. Are there certain terpenes that are known to have sedating affects?  Keep these in mind, because when you are looking at a product, either in a store or online at a reputable source, and they suggest that there is a terpene profile added to their product to assist you with sleeping. You want to look for names like Caryophyllene, Myrcene and Linalool. Those three terpenes are known to have sedative properties.  Now what this Dr. Ethan Russo, is suggesting is that it literally could be either of those two, the THC and the CBN combined, or it was this aged plant that has a more developed profile of terpenes.

Just a reminder, terpenes are those things in the plant world that give the plant characteristics like taste and flavor and, and other characteristics. So that’s what a terpene is. Those three terpenes Caryophyllene, Myrcene and Linalool are known to have characteristics of sedative properties.  So if you are seeking out CBN as a sedative for insomnia, your best bet might be to seek out one that has THC included. You’re likely already going to get the terpene profile in an aged plant, because if the grower is holding it for both of those cannabinoids, it’s likely they also extracted the terpenes as well.  That’s my experience in extraction.

Another misconception about CBN is that the high CBN produces will always be non-intoxicating.  CBN alone can actually increase euphoric effects of THC. It can lead to a more alert, euphoric effect. So anyway, if you’re looking to take advantage of CBN benefits without the high, make sure you’re using products that don’t contain much THC.

Alright. So remember CBN comes from aged THC. So to get to it likely there’s THC, if you just want the CBN by itself, you’ve got to find somebody who can extract it in such a way that THC stays behind.

Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV)

All right. Let’s move to another cannabinoid that is hitting the market. Let’s talk about THCV. All right. There is a V on the end of this molecular structure, and this is Tetrahydrocannabivarin. Yeah, very big, long name, but THCV is likely going to start some major waves in the cannabis world.   It’s really because of, well, there is an appetite for the high that it gives everybody.  Yes. This cannabinoid THCV, is known for energy, alertness and feelings of euphoria.  It’s commonly in the sativa strain.  I’m going to list the benefits, but I want you to keep in mind that this, this molecule, this cannabinoid THCV is psychoactive. You take it, you’re going to experience the high, but it will be high energy and alertness and euphoria, if that’s what you desire.

All right. THCV is an appetite suppressant. Interesting, right? Because THC is quite the opposite, THC stimulates the appetite THCV suppresses it. So THCV will dull the appetite, which may be good for consumers who are focused on weight loss. So you might see this show up in your supplement retail stores. I’m pretty sure there’s going to be more studies.  So I’m going to say then, that this might be a couple of years down the road.   Certainly, they want to suggest that you don’t use THCV if you are struggling with an appetite loss or anorexia, because that’s not going to help.

THCV may also help with diabetes. Research has shown that there’s promise in the ability to regulate blood sugar levels and reduce insulin resistance. So again, this is THCV helping with diabetes.

Also THCV may reduce panic attacks, it appears to curb anxiety attacks in PTSD patients without suppressing emotions. I think that’s pretty critical. THCV may also help with Alzheimer’s. So those are, the tremors, motor control and brain lesions associated with Alzheimer’s disease appear to be improved by THCV. Again, research is ongoing.

I’m a big fan of bone growth and bone density. I practice vitamin D supplements and getting myself out in the sun on a regular basis.  Well, it also appears that THCV also stimulates bone growth.  Now because it promotes the growth of new bone cells, THCV is being looked at for osteoporosis and other related conditions. Osteoporosis also being a lack of bone density. So THCV has quite a bit of opportunities, both appetite, suppressant, diabetes, panic attacks, Alzheimer’s and bone growth.

How to Find Out if Your Product Has These Cannabinoids in it.

Now, the important thing is to understand, while these cannabinoids are currently being studied, they likely will be present in the products that you are consuming today. I’m here to give you a good understanding of how to determine where, and how those cannabinoids are in your product. So you have confidence, but more so, as the market starts evolving and some of these new cannabinoids become more prevalent, then you’re certainly going to start seeing some advertising. We want you all to be able to identify when you have a product that literally has these cannabinoids in them.

There are ways, and I think FDA is super close to setting up standards that will leave you with less risk. I’m guessing based on everything that’s going around in the world today, I would have thought it was going to happen sooner or later, but now I’m looking into maybe 2021, first quarter before it’s all completely ironed out.  You are then participating in those standards that will be held, or that the manufacturers will be held to.   Growers are currently going through it. I know state by state, there are regulations going in place as we speak. Arizona has already initiated one for testing. So they’re coming down the road.

What we’re going to do right now is take a quick little break. And when we come back, now that we’ve identified these new cannabinoids, we’re going to talk about how you can ensure that if you decide you want them, if you actually have them in your product. Okay, so let’s take a quick break and we’ll be right back.

Ed:

All right, welcome back listeners. Now, thank you for joining me today on this topic. I think it’s very exciting. I have kind of a scientific mind. Our products are very clinical in nature, so this kind of stuff really excites me.   Feel free to further this conversation on Instagram, where you can actually jump into a conversation with a few people. You can also email me at info@cannafyl.com and I’m happy to share any information as well as answer questions. Keep both of those in mind. Our Instagram is @Cannafyl.

Now let’s talk about once these cannabinoids are out, how do you tell if you have them in your product? Well, they are already out in small degrees, again, as the research and the potential starts revealing itself, there likely will be an increased amount of specialized products is going to be my guess. The easiest way to tell if you have these very specific cannabinoids I talked about today, which is CBG, CBN and THCV is to review a third party lab test. Remember, it has to be third party, can’t be done in house. The Test Results have to be signed and it has to be done by an approved lab. That’s very important. When you look at that certificate of analysis, by a third party, you should recognize that there are some important components to it that help you verify that it is, in fact, a lab test from a third party, and a valid laboratory. Alright, I happen to have a Certificate of Analysis handy, so there should be a laboratory number, also a test reference number. You often will have a signature of the chief chemist or the person that conducted the test. Not always. I have seen very valid certificates of analysis without that signature, but probably the most important thing in there is the lab name, address, and phone number.

We recently had an executive from Desert Valley Testing, which is a third party cannabis laboratory on our show.  She indicated that she loves getting phone calls to validate a test and it’s very easy.  You simply look at the front page of this certificate of analysis, find their phone number (480) 788-6644 and call them. Then locate the lab number two, zero, zero six, and so on.  They will pull it up and give you, the answer right away. They’re going to say, yes, it’s valid and I don’t need to give them anything else. It’s a short phone call. If you want to talk to them just to ask questions about what it is, because these reports are scientific. They’re not always easy to read.

If you do want to understand how to read one of these reports, please go back to our episode in June. And I promise you, it will clear it up.  Again, we had a representative from Desert Valley Testing here.  The information will be very accurate on how to go through one of these reports.

So now that I’ve validated that this report is real and was not created in a word document, then I can start looking at things. Now, when I look at this report, one of the most obvious things that stands out, is the potency part of this report, potency being the potency of the cannabinoids that are present in this sample or this product. When I go down the report, they will normally show 11 cannabinoids that are the most requested and most common.  There’s over a hundred cannabinoids that we are not, we haven’t even scratched the surface on the potentials of other cannabinoids that aren’t listed. Anyway, these 11, most of them, you will recognize THC and CBD, but there is also CBG and CBN.  There is also all of the acid versions CBGA, and CBDA, there are also CBCs. These are all cannabinoids that one would want to know. There are usually three measurements provided to you.

You’ll commonly see multiple columns of measurements.  You might want to consider that as more of reference points.  So first being an LOQ number and that’s just their basis number.  In other words, anything below that, they’re not even measuring it.  So if you see a number, you know, 0.0 something, and then you see to the right and the next column ND, which stands for not detect it. That means they are only looking for something above this standard amount. Now, all these labs are supposed to be compliant with a standard system of these LOQs. Now the next column will likely be a percent of the sample, or it will be a milligram per gram, per the sample that was provided. So both of those have good information, but you can extract what you need from either one of those. They just divide them up so that they can be useful depending on what you needed to see, when you look at this report. I have to tell you, it’s going to be very common, that you will see CBN and CBG present, in most of your full spectrum products in small amounts below 1%. But I think it’s very common that it will be there. I think THC coming from an aged plant will be something you will find in a dispensary.  It’s common today to see a full spectrum lab report that will show none detected under THCV.  Again, I might suggest that will change at some later time. You know, I’ve shared in the past that there’s other things you want to look for in here. Certainly, you want to see that your THC ratio is less than 0.3%. You want to see that for two reasons. One, if you’re buying, not in a dispensary, if you’re buying without a medical use card or you’re in a non recreational state, you do not want to have a CBD product that has higher than 0.3% THC, because then you’re not protected under the Farm Bill 2018 that released hemp derived CBD from the drug schedule.

I know that was a lot to say. So anyway, this lab test will also provide you with that information. You’ll look at it, it’ll tell you, right in the beginning the level of the THC and what the percentage is.

Also, you should know that if it is at 0.3% or less, it is highly unlikely that you will ever get high from it. Other things that you will see on reports like this that might be valuable to you, especially when we had that conversation about THCV being a sedative.  We said, well, it could have also been terpenes that were present in the plant. And lot of responsible manufacturers will also pay for a terpene profile so that their product is analyzed for the quantity and percentage of terpenes available in that sample. Those three terpenes that I had talked about being Linalool, Myrcene and Caryophyllene, all three of those would be listed in this terpene profile as well as about 25 or 30 others. So there’s usually lots of terpenes in cannabis. Again, just a reminder, cannabis has lots of terpenes and they are usually what gives plants, their characteristics.

Just to kind of segue out a little bit further, these tests usually will also provide you with a presence of heavy metals, microbial things that mold, moisture, solvents, and pesticides.  I also mentioned each test is paid separately. So it’s not uncommon for a manufacturer to spend quite a bit of money on testing. If you see that, then you should give them a lot of confidence in purchasing their product, because, that just shows good self-policing until the industry becomes more regulated. I know we’ve talked about this before, so I’ll stop going over it now. Reputable products will always have a certificate of analysis and it will not take much longer and it will be a requirement. Right now, it is an option, manufacturers can choose to do it or not.

All right, so let’s wrap this up. We’ve discussed three new cannabinoids that are coming out and they are CBN, CBG and THCV. Feel free to ask and questions, just send me an email or go to our Instagram and I’ll provide you with additional information as needed.

I also just wanted to bring this back up again because I feel strongly about this.  Anxiety over the current state of this pandemic is really at an all time high.  So I want to encourage everybody to be careful and consider, the benefits of CBD to naturally relieve the symptoms, and help keep you in homeostasis during this crisis. Obviously, I want to promote it for that reason, but I also want to suggest that it is very available. You do not need a prescription for it. If you’re just treating anxiety during this time, you don’t need that much, just small amounts. So again, I want to encourage you to do this. I find myself really working hard on, on checking in with both my family and the friends that are close around, close to me on their anxiety levels. And I’m getting a hundred percent response. I’m feeling it, I’m seeing it. I also believe it’s somewhat conductive. So, somebodies anxiety is way up, I’m sure it easily transfers from one human to another. So be kind to one another.

I do want to put out a shout out to the Andre house in Phoenix, Arizona for allowing us to come in and have a conversation, on how we might better support, the homeless community. Especially during these times now, I’d like to be able to support them all year long, but specifically when it’s 117 degrees outside, and the only thing you have to retreat to is that shade from your tent.  Also, they are dealing with other problems, high anxiety, emotional distress, addictions, or any of those.  Man, so as a human, I find that, I’m very compelled to want to help them. So again, thank you Andre house for letting us participate.

I thank Kim, and the Cannafyl team for putting today’s research together really appreciate it. You will find a lot of the information they put together will be on our website. We’ll put all the blogs in there. We’ll redraft some of the research papers, so they’re not so difficult to interpret.  Most of the research papers that we read, that we go through, they start at least 40 pages.   The words are sometimes challenging, I have a challenge pronouncing them, but we will create them and put them on the website for your viewing.

Again, feel free to reach out to us if you need questions answered around that. I definitely want to thank you listeners for allowing us to share this knowledge with you. We really do feel it’s important.

The next episode will be interesting because we’re going to discuss the youth and CBD as it relates to the upcoming school year. I’m recognizing lots of anxiety when it comes to the upcoming school year, because nobody likes online tutoring. They’re upset because all their sports are gone, and they’ve not been able to hang out with all their friends all summer long. So, come visit us for our next episode, I promise it’ll be helpful and we will even have a few teenagers in here and they can share their stories with us.

Okay. So this is Ed Chaney signing off. I want to remind you, keep your vibe high, be nice to others. Anxieties are high right now. All right, we’ll see you until next show. Take care.

Thank you for listening to the CBD ED show.
