what is cbG - Facts & Myths

Exploring the facts and myths of CBG and have your burning questions answered.

You probably have heard of CBG, cannabigerol, and wondered what they were. Here is your answer. Cannabigerol (CBG) is one of a hundred less known cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. A quick internet search may yield tones of information on CBD, THC, and ‘a hundred other cannabinoids’ but little details on the hundred others.  CBG has shown considerable promise to treat glaucoma, inflammations, fighting cancer, and so on – more on that later. CBG is a cannabinoid, and before we can effectively zero in on it, we need to understand how cannabinoids work.

What is CBG?

CBG is the cannabinoid from which the marijuana plant synthesizes all other cannabinoids.  The fact that all other cannabinoids begin as CBG creates the possibility of finding the therapeutic attributes of all cannabinoids in cannabigerol. This attribute has made the cannabinoid quite fascinating to consumers and researchers as well.

How does CBG work?

Having learned what CBG is, it would be surprising if your next question was whether or not CBG is water or oil soluble. It is more likely you want to know how it works. Here is your answer. Like other cannabinoids, CBG connects with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) through CBD receptors.  It interacts with both CB1 and CB2 receptors, and that enables it to affect both the brain and the body. Once it combines with the receptors, it works to restore homeostatic balance. The fact that CBG works through the endocannabinoid system means that it affects every part of the body where the ECS is found. The endocannabinoid system is the most widely distributed organ system in the body. Its wide distribution allows CBG to connect with many different parts of the body. There is still a lot that is yet to be understood about this cannabinoid. Still, a look at its potential health benefits will enable you to see why many medical marijuana stakeholders find it so fascinating.
