CBG is short for Cannabigerol and this cannabinoid is the precursor for all other cannabinoids within the hemp family of plants. The term ‘precursor’ means that the hemp plant makes all other cannabinoids from CBG.
CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid – it will not make you feel intoxicated and is entirely legal within the UK provided that the THC content is less than 0.2% which ours is.
Where CBD has a high affinity for CB2 receptors in the periphery of the human body (there are more CB2 receptors in the body than all other types of receptor combined!), CBG can bind with both CB1 receptors in the brain and CB2 receptors in the body.
Early studies are showing promising therapeutic benefits of CBG in a wide range of a areas such as:
Assisting management of pain
Combatting Huntingdon’s Disease
Inhibiting Tumour Growth in animal models of colorectal cancer
Killing drug resistant bacteria such as methillin-resistant Staphloccus aureus or MRSA
There are more recent studies showing that CBG may have real potential in assisting weight-loss therapies.
Why is CBG so expensive to produce?
It takes around 20 times more plant material to make CBG compared to that required to make CBD.
The plant material has to be harvested in a very precise time-controlled manner before the plant converts its’ CBG into other cannabinoids. Thus CBG is a much more expensive cannabinoid oil to produce.
CBD is generally much better for anxiety and has a subtle relaxing effect (whilst non-intoxicating), whereas CBG users generally report feeling more energized and able to focus for longer periods of time on tasks at hand with a greater level of productivity.
