CBG

Gaining popularity in the cannabis market, CBG is a hot commodity and truly a hidden gem out of the many cannabinoids. From recent studies, CBG has proven to be anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and neuro-protective. What does that mean? It means CBG can help fight viruses in the body and alleviate pain, as well as help aid against neurodegenerative diseases. Although the mental effects are non-intoxicating, it can help stabilize and regulate moods as it is believed to boost anandamide, the body’s “happy” molecule, that is responsible for regulating other body functions like appetite and sleep. Research shows that CBG can be helpful for those who suffer from glaucoma, IBS, Crohn’s Disease, Huntington’s Disease and even slow down cancer cells. Due to CBG being a fairly new discovery, many cannabis strains have low content of it and therefore more plant matter is needed to extract enough CBG. However, with growing cannabis knowledge around the industry, it’s fair to say CBG’s popularity will see its growth within medicinal and recreational users.
