What You Need to Know About CBG and its Therapeutic Benefits

The Marijuana plant has over 100 cannabinoid compounds, and recently, the cannabinoid CBG has received incredible attention for its multitude of impressive wellness benefits recently. While most are familiar with THC and CBD, CBG is one of the latest additions to the cannabinoid market. We take a closer look at CBG, its amazing properties, and CBG, CBD, and THC differences.

What is CBG?

CBG or Cannabigerol is considered the foundation or stem cell from which all other cannabinoids are derived. It is itself a cannabinoid, and unlike THC, it does not cause psychoactive effects that would otherwise get you “high,” but it does offer immense healing qualities.

While CBG is not as popular as its CBD or THC counterparts just yet, it is because the cannabinoid is still under research and found in much smaller quantities, in younger plants. As extraction methods continue to advance and research focus on cannabis and hemp-derived products, CBG has opened a new door to natural therapeutic benefits for the mind and body.

As CBG is a biologically active chemical compound, it delivers therapeutic benefits in support of optimum health.

CBG versus THC and CBD

CBG differs from THC in that it does not contain any psychoactive properties.

Studies have shown that when CBD and CBG are combined, it creates a powerful healing effect in the body. CBG also acts faster than CBD as it interacts directly with the brain’s CB1 and CB2 receptors.

 How Does CBG Work?

CBG delivers its wellness benefits by influencing the endocannabinoid system or ECS. The CB1 and CB2 receptors in the ECS support hormone production responsible for physiological sensations. CBG works with these receptors to produce a controlled response.

Current research has revealed the therapeutic qualities of CBG. It is also a natural anti-inflammatory and a powerful antibacterial compound.

What are the Health Benefits of CBG?

Alleviates Pain

As CBG works with the ECS receptors, it can assist with lasting pain relief.

Improves Mood

CBG can regulate mood and improve your mental health without psychoactive effects.


Its natural anti-inflammatory properties contribute to its favorability as an aid for pain and inflammation.


Cannabigerol is antibacterial, with studies currently exploring its impact against MERS.

Promotes Brain Health

The consumption of CBG supports a healthy brain with exceptional mental fortitude.

Assists Metabolism

From managing your appetite to regulating your metabolism, choose a natural cannabinoid in CBG to help you reach your healthcare goals.
