If you suffer from chronic pain, stress, sleeplessness, inflammation or anxiety you may have come across CB2 oil. This is not to be confused with CBD oil, which you have no doubt heard about as well. This article explains the difference between CB2 and CBD oil and why CB2 oil is getting Aussie chins wagging.
What’s the difference between CB2 and CBD oil?
They sound similar, but these two products are remarkably different. The more well-known of the two is CBD oil. Its name comes from the abbreviation for cannabidiol, which is the most dominant non-psychoactive cannabinoid in Cannabis.
CBD is extracted from the flower and leaf of low THC cannabis plants. It has the ability to stimulate cell receptors in our body, including receptors of the human Endocannabinoid System (ECS). If you’re not familiar with the ECS, here’s a great blog that explains it clearly.
While CBD is legal in many countries, it has only recently been made available as an over the counter medicine in Australia. It is VERY expensive and many people who need it simply can’t afford it.
This has pushed many Australians into purchasing CBD oil from backyard producers or overseas, which is NOT legal. What’s more, these products are often inconsistent in their potency and have mixed results.
CB2 oil presents a legal, cheaper alternative to CBD oil. CB2 is a trademarked product of Canadian brand Cannanda. It is a terpene blend that, like CBD oil, targets the CB2-receptors of the endocannabinoid system.
What are terpenes?
Terpenes are the natural compounds that give plants and flowers their odours and aromas. In fact, these little understood compounds are the subject of increasing interest by researchers in regards to their potential therapeutic and medicinal applications.
Terpenes are similar in structure to cannabinoids, which is why they can stimulate similar responses in our bodies.
The wonderful thing about terpenes is they occur in all plants, not just cannabis. This means they are cheaper to extract and contain no THC. They are also perfectly legal to use.
CB2 oil benefits
If you think CBD oil will help with your condition, chances are CB2 will as well. Studies have shown benefits of the following conditions following CB2 activation.
- Pain and inflammation
- Degenerative neurological conditions
- Multiple sclerosis
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Immune system modulation
- Metabolic disorders
- Digestive disorders
- Eye health
- Skin health
- Respiratory health
Research has also shown terpenes to act as antidepressants, antiviral, anticancer, antidiabetic, antiplasmodial and antimicrobial.
It is important to keep in mind that the human body is complex and what works for one person may not work for another.

Here are a few customer reviews for Cannanda’s CB2 range.
“Purchased the CB2 oil start of Feb 21 to see if can help with few ongoing pain issues. This oil has improved the pain levels dramatically and am now also getting much better sleep at night. Have ordered second bottle and going to keep on it as better than taking other pain medications and it works better.”

“I have experienced severe back and neck pain over the last few years due to back injury at work. after several operations and 2 fusions I have ended up with nerve damage. After taking many serious pain medications over the years, I have managed to get off them all and only take CB2 oil which has helped me dramatically. I am expecting a knee replacement in April and the CB2 Oil has helped with my knee pain also. I am very happy with the results I have had so far, and would recommend the CB2 Oil to anyone who needs to control there pain.”
“Love the salve. Using it mostly on dry skin on cheeks. Working wonderfully. Also a great result on sore shoulder after a day in the garden. Highly recommend it.”
