Cannabinoid products are becoming more popular as well, so it is vital to understand how to prepare them for sale. It is possible to package your product in a variety of ways based on the type of product but there are basic guidelines you should follow.
What are the cannabinoids and what are they doing to the body?
Cannabinoids are a family of chemical compounds that work with the brain’s endocannabinoid system or ECS. While the cannabinoids in the cannabis plant are similar to the natural cannabinoids found within the body and produce distinct effects, they are because of their interaction with cannabinoid receptors. THC, CBD and CBN are the three cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. The cannabis cannabinoids that people put on their bodies to reduce inflammation and pain as well as create relaxation (not yet recognized by the FDA) are:
* Capsaicin (found in chili peppers) reduces itching and improves blood circulation; assists with weight loss; eases discomfort.
* Capsicum (found in the peppers belonging to the Capsicum family) helps reduce inflammation; aids digestion; aids in arthritis and rheumatism.
* Cinnamon increases blood flow and helps reduce pain/inflammation
* Ginger: increases circulation, relieves pain/inflammation; alleviates nausea
