What is CBG? What You Need to Know 

Everybody knows about the popular cannabinoids, or compounds, called THC and CBD. CBD has increased in popularity due to its therapeutic properties that produce no psychoactive effects in contrast to THC, which is known for its psychoactive effects that can help relieve common symptoms like pain, nausea and insomnia. But these two compounds are not the only cannabinoids present in the cannabis plant. CBG is another cannabinoid that is found in the cannabis plant but does not have as much recognition. So, what is CBG? 

What is CBG? 

Cannabigerol (CBG) is one of the many cannabinoids derived from the cannabis plant and is commonly referred to as the “mother of all cannabinoids.” In its acid form, it is the producer of other cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. As the plant grows, the amount of CBG present declines. Because of this, young plants are used for harvesting CBG.  

What are the Benefits of CBG? 

CBG’s benefits are similar to CBD’s. Both are non-psychoactive compounds but they differ in their molecular structure. Because of the differences, there are slightly different effects. For example, CBD may provide a more relaxed effect while CBG may be more energizing and uplifting. Additionally, CBG has been shown to be an appetite stimulant. 

CBG may help to alleviate many symptoms such as:

  • Pain
  • Anxiety
  • Appetite loss
  • Depression
  • Inflammation
