WHAT IS CBG?

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a lesser known cannabinoid that occurs in lesser quantities than THC and CBD in the cannabis plant. Like CBD, CBG is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid, meaning it does not produce the intoxicating effects that are associated with THC. While the presence of CBG is usually less than 1% in most cannabis strains, it is the chemical parents of both THC and CBD. Cannabis plants produce cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which is the precursor to the three main cannabinoids that most people are familiar with: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA). In most strains, when CBGA is exposed to ultraviolet light or heat, it is converted into either THCA or CBDA.

POTENTIAL HEALTH BENEFITS OF CBG

 

Scientists have recently become excited about the potential health benefits of CBG and are promoting more research. CBG has been found to interact with specific physiological systems which results in promising medicinal uses:
