What is CBG?
CBG, also called cannabigerol, is one of the many cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. In fact, it is considered the origin of all cannibinoids, as without CBG, neither tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) nor cannabidiol (CBD) would exist.
Studies suggest that it is particularly effective against anxiety, mood swings, and inflammation. Research on CBG also suggests that, like CBD, it activates CB1 receptors. This means that CBG may even counteract the psychoactive effects of THC.
What is the difference between CBD and CBG?
CBG is much more difficult to isolate than CBD. You can find about 1% CBG in hemp, while a mature hemp plant is thought to contain about 10% CBD.
Isolating hemp is not only complex, but also costly, requiring state-of-the-art equipment and expertise to properly extract.
Can you smoke CBG?
You can roll a joint or a CBG cigarette from your CBG flowers. Just as you would with CBD flowers. But beware: even though this product is not considered a drug due to its CBD and THC content, this type of consumption is still harmful to your health and can cause illness in the long run.
There are also CBG oils (10%) that allow you to benefit from both molecules. Like all cannabinoids, CBG is most effective when used in combination with other molecules, hence the popularity of full-spectrum oils that allow users to benefit from the “entourage effect.”
What are the benefits of CBG? Properties and positive effects
Since CBG is not yet widely available on the market, there is not much research on the subject. However, the studies conducted by scientists are very promising. One of these studies showed that CBG can help reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. Another study highlights CBG’s ability to interact with multiple receptors responsible for inflammation, pain and heat sensitization. In addition, CBG is a molecule that is quite well tolerated by the body. It could also be effective in the treatment of glaucoma.
Even though the results of the studies conducted so far seem convincing, it is important to keep in mind that more research on CBG is needed to confirm its benefits and side effects.
