What is CBG? Why are people taking CBG?

CBG, or cannabigerol, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the cannabis plant. It is one of over 100 known cannabinoids and is often referred to as the "mother cannabinoid" because it is the precursor to other cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. CBG is widely available online, the different concentrations and applications of CBG have different effects on the mind and body.  

CBG has gained attention in recent years for its potential therapeutic benefits. Studies have shown that CBG may have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and neuroprotective properties. It may also have potential as a treatment for glaucoma and inflammatory bowel disease.

One study conducted in 2015 found that CBG inhibited the growth of cancer cells in mice with colon cancer. Another study in 2019 found that CBG may be a promising treatment for Huntington's disease, a neurodegenerative disorder.

While there is still much research to be done on CBG, early studies suggest that it may have a wide range of potential therapeutic applications. However, it is important to note that research is still in its early stages and more studies are needed to fully understand the potential benefits and risks of CBG.

In addition to potential therapeutic benefits, CBG may also have commercial applications. Because it is the precursor to other cannabinoids, CBG can be used in the production of other cannabis-based products such as tincturestopicalscoffee, and  gummies.

It is worth noting that CBG is not widely available in cannabis strains and is typically only found in trace amounts. However, there are some strains that have been specifically bred to have higher levels of CBG.

Overall, CBG shows promise as a potentially beneficial cannabinoid with a range of potential therapeutic applications. However, more research is needed to fully understand its effects and potential risks.
