CBG or Cannabigerol is known as the mother of all cannabinoids; without her, there would be no CBD, CBN CBC, and the most widely known one THC. CBG has been showing promising results in the area of anti-proliferative of cancer cells, stimulation and protection of brain and bone cells, and as an anti-bacterial strong enough to kill Staphylococcus aureus, also known as MRSA. CBG can be used when other treatments have not worked. Besides killing anti- bacterial infections, CBG is also a neuroprotectant showing benefits with treating Huntington’s and neuro-degenerative diseases. This is possible because of its special interaction with both receptors, allowing for mass protection and targeting of the perineal nervous and immune system. Studies are also seeing results in treating IBS, and bladder dysfunction with CBG.
CBG is one of the lowest produced cannabinoids, ranging from 10-20 times lower than CBD, and THC. This is because it comes from aged marijuana and is produced in very low quantities. Along with low production, CBG does have side effects, inducing drug interactions such as induced sedition, unpredictable change in blood pressure, and interaction with cardiovascular medications. Always consult with your physician before adding any cannabinoid to your routine.
