WTF is Galaxzzz?

Have you ever purchased a Hemp product and thought to yourself, “WTF is CBD and CBN?” Don’t worry, you’re not alone!

As more and more products are released into the atmosphere, medical patients and recreational users feel a sense of confusion and overwhelmingness when it comes to picking out the right products for themselves. You’re craving high-quality products that will provide superior relief, but it can be tedious to memorize the benefits and effects of every ingredient. Therefore, you might find certain medications to not be as effective in suppressing your pain as other strains, products, or brands might be.

The two main acronyms people recognize when they make a purchase are THC and CBD, but there are, in fact, hundreds of other compounds that make up the composition of a marijuana plant. Each compound is responsible for giving users specific effects to help with targeted health problems or bodily functions, which is why it is important for you to notice the difference between them. CBD and CBN are additional common terms of non-psychoactive cannabinoids that are located inside of the plant. All these compounds can be beneficial in assisting with pain, mood regulation, cell regrowth, suppressed appetites, insomnia and other crucial bodily functions.


Cannabidiol (CBD) is a full spectrum isolate derived from the plant that contains non-psychoactive compounds that can be found in many medications, foods, supplements, and beauty products. While CBD can be seen as a mainstream remedy for managing symptoms of medical conditions, it is important to note that it is not meant to act as a cure for any type of disability or medical issue.


Cannabinol (CBN) is a group of non-psychoactive compounds that forms in the plant as it ages and matures. It is not considered to be as mainstream as CBD, but you might’ve seen these letters appear across the packaging of some CBD products you’ve purchased. Although CBN is in many products, there is less research on it, and it is seen less often. Like CBD, it is not meant to cure any disabilities or illnesses, but it can cause positive side effects
