It seems like everywhere you turn, CBD products can be found on store shelves. While there are dozens of different kinds of products to choose from, sometimes what you need lies in a more niche market. As the hemp industry has expanded, minor cannabinoid products have gained popularity. Many individuals have found a product that meets their needs beyond what CBD offers.
What are Minor Cannabinoids?
Minor cannabinoid products are derived from the same hemp that CBD is extracted from. Though found in smaller quantities than CBD, cannabinoids such as CBN and HHC can be extracted to create products like tinctures, edibles, and vape cartridges.
The presence of minor cannabinoids can be influenced by the strain of hemp the cannabinoid is extracted from, the growing conditions of the hemp plant, and even the nutrients used to grow it. Unlike CBD, it takes more biomass to create minor cannabinoid products. To combat this, some hemp strains have been specifically bred to produce more of a specific minor cannabinoid, such as CBG and CBN.
Delta 8, Delta 9, and Delta 10 THC
Delta THC products derived from hemp have quickly become a favorite with many. These isolate products are known for their properties that promote a sensation many individuals call “euphoric”. However, Delta 8, 9, and 10 THC all have their own unique properties.
Delta 8 THC is easily one of the most popular minor cannabinoids on the market. This particular cannabinoid creates a euphoric “high” sensation in most individuals. Shoppers looking for Delta 8 THC products can find everything from gummies to tinctures on the shelves at any one of our locations in Richardson, Irving, and Midlothian.
Delta 9 THC is growing in popularity as a niche market for those looking for a more pronounced “high” sensation. This cannabinoid is ideal for those more experienced with Delta THC products. Shoppers looking for Delta 9 THC can find what they are looking for at any of our three locations.
For those looking for more of a mild euphoric “high” sensation from a Delta THC product derived from hemp, Delta 10 THC is the ideal option. Delta 10 THC can usually be found in edibles, taking the worry out of measuring serving sizes. This is also a more ideal product for those new to the world of Delta THC.
HHC is another minor cannabinoid that has been gaining popularity in recent years. According to the Observer, “HHC… is a compound that is known to be the most stable version of THC because of its resistance to heat and UV radiation. It also has a substantially longer shelf-life than THC. Unlike THC-O, HHC is, in fact, naturally occurring.”
Research surrounding HHC has focused primarily on how the minor cannabinoid can interact with cancer cells. At the time of this writing, current studies suggest HHC compounds show potential as a potent chemotherapeutic agent in colon cancer. However, results are still considered preliminary but open the pathway to more in-depth research.
If HHC is the minor cannabinoid product you are looking for, CBD American Shaman offers a range of HHC products including cartridges, smokable hemp flower, and gummies. Shoppers can find all of the HHC products we offer on our store shelves at any one of our three locations. Not sure which HHC product is right for you?

CBN is an established minor cannabinoid with popular backing. Known for its sleep promoting properties, CBN is a great addition to any nighttime routine. Like CBD, this cannabinoid is non-psychoactive and has been the focus of the scientific and medical communities for years.
According to a late 2021 study published by researchers at the University of Western Australia observing the use of CBN for Insomnia, “Two weeks of nightly sublingual administration of a cannabinoid extract is well tolerated and improves insomnia symptoms and sleep quality in individuals with chronic insomnia symptoms.” While results were still considered preliminary, it offers valuable insight into how individual cannabinoids like CBN can be used.
CBD American Shaman offers a variety of products for those new and experienced with CBN. Shoppers can find a variety of CBN products on the store shelves of any of our three locations. Not sure which product is right for you? Our staff members are here to help!
CBDA and CBGA are minor cannabinoids that have stepped into the spotlight in recent years. In early 2022, researchers at Oregon State University announced groundbreaking findings concerning using CBDA and CBGA cannabinoids in the fight against Covid-19.
According to the press release, “[CBDA and CBGA] bind to the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, blocking a critical step in the process the virus uses to infect people.” Both cannabinoids are derived from hemp and have a good safety profile in humans, leading researchers to believe this potential for an alternative weapon against the Covid-19 virus is viable.
While research is still considered preliminary, it offers a new pathway of opportunity within the scientific and medical communities. Meanwhile, shoppers who want a CBDA/CBGA product need look no further than CBD American Shaman. Our CBDA & CBGA Extract Comprehensive Immunity Support tincture can be an ideal addition to your daily routine.
