What is CBG and how does it work? 

The potential health benefits of Cannabigerol (CBG) is currently a popular topic for scientists, breeders, and dispensaries worldwide. Consumers are familiar with the common cannabinoids: CBD, THC, CBC— but what is CBG and how is it different?

CBG is commonly referred to as a precursor of CBD, THC, and CBC, for it plays an important role in the synthesis of cannabinoids. Extremely low levels of CBG can be found in cannabis plants. High levels of CBG are typically extracted from budding cannabis plants for medicinal use.

Like THC, CBG reacts with the human body’s natural endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS serves to keep balance within the body, and is associated with the brain, nervous, and immune systems. CBG does not produce a psychoactive effect, and is currently being studied for its potential health benefits.

CBG is currently being studied by scientific researchers, and has a multitude of potential health benefits:

  • Anxiety and depression relief 
  • Glaucoma and intraocular pressure treatment 
  • Antibacterial properties 
  • GABA reuptake inhibition
  • Inflammatory bowel disease and colitis relief 
  • Cancer treatment
