WHAT IS CBG?
Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is known as the “mother” cannabinoid, as other cannabinoids, such as THC, CBD, and CBN are produced from it. After this production takes place, only about 1% of CBG is left in the plant. CBG is especially hard to producing because it is the “mother” of all cannabinoids. This means that if a cannabis plant matures too much, there may be even less than 1% of CBG left in the leaves.
WHAT ABOUT RESEARCH?
There is an abundant amount of research coming out about Cannabigerol these days, due to the non-psychoactive, yet therapeutic effects. In a study done by Front Pharmacol in 2018, the scientists found that CBG has exceptional therapeutic potential within the body.
According to the studies done by Cannabics Pharmaceuticals Inc., CBG provides anti-inflammatory qualities and may act as an antibacterial agent. Within the research done of CBG already, there are many uses for CBG. Researchers have found the CBG has beneficial benefits within the full body and mind.
HOW DOES CBG WORK?
CBG interacts with both the CB1 and CB2 receptors. If used with THC, CBG will lessen the “head high” that THC produces. CBG works on a person’s endocannabinoid system, mostly through boosting anandamide, the endocannabinoid that naturally boosts dopamine levels. CBG can also pause GABA intake na block serotonin receptors.
