Do You Know The Potential Benefits of CBG?
Everyone speaks of THC and CBD, but few understand the workings of other minor cannabinoids – take CBG. Cannabigerol (CBG) is a minor cannabinoid, and the third most prevalent in the cannabis plant. It is one of dozens of cannabinoids, and while it occurs in small quantities, it packs a surprisingly potent punch. But, like all good things in life, CBG is not all that easy to find. It occurs in minimal quantities that commonly average at one percent in flower. CBG binds weakly to both the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the endocannabinoid system, and is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid, unlike its cousin THC. CBG is a precursor to both THC and CBD. Both of these major cannabinoids develop out of Cannabigerol, an act that leaves meager concentrations of cannabigerol in cured flower. The CBG present in cannabis is the result of a natural degradation process, where CBG-A converts to CBG. What Are the Potential Benefits of CBG? Unlike its more widely known cousins THC and CBD, CBG is not well-studied. Although large scale scientific studies are lacking, the limited evidence available suggests that this cannabinoid may offer several medicinal benefits. These extend from anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties to analgesic effects, coupled with the potential to relieve inflammation and depression. But, perhaps more widely acknowledged are its potential effects as a neuroprotectant, an anti-cancer compound, a catalyst for appetite stimulation, and a glaucoma medicine. CBG as a Nueroprotectant?
