Compound Questions Answered: CBG

With every new health trend coming out lately, we don’t blame you for not keeping up on every single one like how you do with the Kardashians. 

But - the new thing going around today is all the buzz about the CGB isolate. Basically, CBD’s cool new sister. 

CBG, or otherwise known as cannabigerol, is a “hemp-derived cannabinoid that supports the body’s natural inflammatory response and overall health of the Endocannabinoid System (ECS).” Basically, this agent binds to receivers in your brain to actively reduce inflammation and promote better circulation! 

CBG is one of 100+ cannabinoids found in cannabis plants and belongs to the group of non-psychoactive cannabinoids, meaning it is non-intoxicating and can’t get you high.

While CBD and THC are the most well-known of the cannabinoids, minor cannabinoids such as CBG are gaining more attention due to the promising health benefits that early research has found. CBG is considered a minor cannabinoid because the quantities found within cannabis plants are typically extremely low, however, CBG-dominant hemp strains have been able to produce plants containing high percentages of CBG, which is carried through the extraction and production process.

What does that mean for you and your wellness journey?

CBG has been shown in studies to be able to benefit the body in a myriad of different ways, fighting bacteria and other diseases along the way! Some examples of CBG’s studies uses are…

  1. Pain relief
  2. Fighting inflammation (this also means help with diseases like IBS and Crohn’s)
  3. Psoriasis relief
  4. Preventing brain degeneration
  5. Topical antibacterial

Who would have thought a little plant compound could do so many amazing things!
