Cannabigerol (CBG)

Cannabigerol, commonly referred to as CBG, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found primarily in low-THC and high-CBD cannabis strains, including hemp. Known as the “mother of cannabinoids,” it serves as a precursor to other cannabinoids like THC and CBD.

CBG is a bit of a shape-shifter. In the early growth stages of the cannabis plant, CBG is abundant. But as the plant matures, it transforms, giving rise to various cannabinoids like THC and CBD. This transformation makes CBG less abundant in mature plants, turning it into a rare and valuable find. Its non-psychoactive nature means it doesn’t produce the ‘high’ associated with THC, making it an appealing subject for scientific study and potential therapeutic use.

Emerging research suggests CBG might play a role in combating inflammationpain, and nausea. It shows promise in treating conditions such as glaucomainflammatory bowel diseaseCrohn’s disease, and possibly inhibiting cancer cell growth.

  • A Beacon of Hope for Glaucoma: CBG has shown promise in reducing intraocular pressure, making it a potential ally in the fight against glaucoma.
  • Warrior Against Cancer: Early studies indicate that CBG might have properties that help in combating the growth of certain cancer cells.
  • Soothing the Gut: For those battling conditions like inflammatory bowel disease, CBG could be a soothing balm, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Pain Relief Pioneer: Moving away from traditional painkillers, CBG offers a potential alternative for managing chronic pain without the psychoactive effects of THC.
