What Exactly Is CBG?
CBG (cannabigerol) is a non-acidic cannabinoid produced when heat is applied to the CBGA (cannabigerolic acid) molecule. Its close chemical relatives are THC, CBD, and CBC.
CBG is found mainly in hemp products, and strains bred for high THC usually contain very low amounts of CBG (less than 1%). High CBD strains, on the other hand, contain much higher concentrations of this essential cannabinoid. Will CBG Get You High?
No, CBG will not get you high. CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid much like CBD. In fact, in brain-chemistry terms, CBG is what’s known as an antagonist because it interferes with the trippy high created by THC. That’s not a bad thing.
In fact, it underscores the danger of producing strong weed strains with ultra-high THC concentrations because, without CBG, it’s entirely possible to go from buzzed to bad trip in just one drag.
What Are The Benefits Of CBG?
The benefits that CBG has to offer are closely tied to what it does in the human body. In the right dose, CBG acts as an:
Analgesic (relieves pain).
Antibacterial (slows bacteria growth).
Anti-convulsive (reduces seizures and convulsions).
Anti-inflammatory (reduces inflammation).
Anti-insomnia (aids sleep).
Anti-proliferative (inhibits cancer cell growth).
Antidepressant (raises mood).
Bone stimulant (promotes bone growth).
Brain cell stimulant (promotes neuron growth).
Appetite stimulant (increases appetite).
As you can see, CBG has the potential to make many sick people well again.
What Disorders Can CBG Treat?
Because of its long list of benefits, CBG can be used to treat:
Inflammatory bowel disease.
Huntington’s disease. Cancer.
Methicillin-resistant microbial strains such as MRSA.
Low appetite (resulting from chemotherapy and other treatments).
Bladder dysfunction. Psoriasis.
Research into CBG is still ongoing, so this list will likely grow longer in the future.
Does CBG Have Any Side Effects?
CBG does not have any side effects when taken in therapeutic doses. The key words there are “therapeutic doses.” You can experience negative side effects if you consume too much of any substance…even water.
So you can see that there’s a huge difference between a “therapeutic dose” and one that would cause side effects.
That’s why we can effectively say that CBG has no side effects.
