Within the cannabis plant, there is a group of chemical compounds named cannabinoids, also known as phytocannabinoids. CBN, CBG and CBC are all classed as minor cannabinoids because they are typically found in low concentrations within the cannabis plant.
The cannabis plant is known to contain over 120 different phytocannabinoids, all varying in potency and concentrations, but the most commonly known, and abundantly available, are THC and CBD. However, there are a group of rarer cannabinoids that are known as minor cannabinoids because they have a much smaller presence in the plant. This group of cannabinoids requires further research and investigation, but includes compounds like Cannabinol (CBN), cannabigerol (CBG) and cannabichromene (CBC).
