Cannabigerol (CBG)

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant that is often referred to as the "mother cannabinoid" or "stem cell" of cannabinoids because it is the precursor from which other cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, are synthesized. While CBG is usually found in low concentrations in most cannabis strains, it plays a crucial role in the plant's biology and therapeutic effects.

CBG interacts with the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the human body, which is responsible for regulating various physiological functions such as mood, appetite, pain sensation, and immune response. Research suggests that CBG may offer a range of potential health benefits due to its interactions with the ECS. Studies have shown that CBG has anti-inflammatory properties, neuroprotective protective properties, analgesic properties, is antibacterial and antifungal, can improve appetite, and offer some pain relief. Consumers report that CBG boosts mental clarity and positive feelings.
