What is CBG?
Cannabigerol, or CBG, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid typically in low-THC and high-CBD cannabis strains, including hemp. Like THC, CBG reacts with the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. CBG acts as a buffer to the psychoactivity of THC by working to alleviate the paranoia sometimes caused by higher levels of THC. The human body has a built in endocannabinoid system that works to keep the body in its balanced state of homeostasis. For example, at an injury site, the endocannabinoid system can help regulate immune cells to limit inflammation.
CBG is thought to be effective in treating glaucoma because it reduces intraocular pressure and it has neuroprotective effects. CBG was shown to protect neurons in mice with Huntington’s disease. CBG is showing great promise as a cancer fighter. It has shown to block receptors that cause cancer cell growth. CBG inhibited tumors and chemically induced colon carcinogenesis. CBG is also an effective antibacterial agent. CBG is also good for helping with Crohn’s disease and inflammatory bowel disease.
