CBG stands for cannabigerol, one of the 100+ cannabinoids found in the hemp plant.
Actually, CBG plays a significant role in the development of CBD and THC in the cannabis sativa plant.
There are many botanically interesting facts about this powerful cannabinoid that attribute to its treasure trove of health supporting benefits.
So let’s break it down and discover what is CBG exactly and why you need to know about this beneficial cannabinoid.
Why Is CBG Called ‘The Mother Of Cannabinoids?
CBG, in its acidic or ‘early form’, is known as CBGa, the precursor (chemical source) of THC, CBD and most other cannabinoids. If not for CBGa, THC and CBD would not exist.
The development of these life supporting cannabinoids goes like this….
As the young cannabis plant matures and begins budding, enzymes and compounds combine and form CBGa. Then as the plant matures further and absorbs more UV light, CBGa breaks down and converts into THCa, CBDa and CBCa, which are the acidic precursors to THC, CBD and CBC.
Only a small amount of CBGa will actually convert to CBG, which is the reason CBG is referred to as a minor cannabinoid, due to its limited concentration in the cannabis plant.
However, many hemp farmers, like 3 Tall Pines Farm of Wisconsin, grow, breed and cross breed CBG rich strains that produce higher levels of this cannabinoid that offers so many powerful health and well-being benefits.
CBG & CBD Working Together For Increased Benefits
CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, like CBD. CBG and CBD have many similar benefits, and are actually considered ‘companion molecules’ due to the fact that they join forces in providing effective physical discomfort relief and stress release along with a wide range of other wellness support effects.
CBG, according to scientific research, has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties and can offer neuroprotective benefits. CBD also shares those benefits, however, CBG binds directly with CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors in the brain and throughout the body.
CBD, on the other hand, interacts indirectly with the cannabinoid receptors by influencing molecules and other systems, therefore delivering potent benefits to the body and mind in different ways.
There are many CBG products that also have a high concentration of CBD that provide the enhanced synergistic benefits of these two cannabinoids.
