What is CBG?

Today, we chose to profile a cannabinoid that has yet to receive National acclaim: Cannabigerol, or CBG, a cannabinoid found in highest concentrations in RISEBALANCE and RECOVERY.

 

What is CBG?

  • A non-psychoactive cannabinoid that acts as a catalyst for biochemistry in the cannabis plant
  • CBG is a chemical precursor to THC and CBD, meaning the plant creates CBG and during the flowering process converts the cannabinoid into THC and CBG
  • CBG is difficult to accomplish in large concentrations, being that it converts to either THC or CBD
  • LEAF accomplishes modest amounts of CBG in our hemp genetics and we preserve the cannabinoids in our solutions by formulated with crude oil

 

How Does CBG Work?

  • CBG interacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors, preventing the psychoactive effects of THC
  • CBG boosts anandamide, an endocannabinoid (occurs naturally in our bodies ) that increases dopamine levels and responsible for regulating mood, sleep, and appetite
  • CBG blocks serotonin receptors, potentially acting as antidepressant

 

The Benefits

  • Neruprotectant
  • Antioxidant
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Sedative

 

The CBG research outside of our own is limited. In October we will harvest CBG specific hemp genetics, as part of a larger effort to accomplish genetics specific to the ancillary cannabinoids and terpenes. With harvest we will continue to explore the medicinal benefits of CBG and other cannabinoids.
