WHAT IS CBG?
CBG is often referred to as the “mother” of cannabinoids as it is the precursor from which other cannabinoids, like CBD and THC, eventually form. Though there hasn’t been much scientific research conducted on CBG yet, anecdotal evidence indicates CBG may feature antibacterial properties, as well as help increase dopamine levels, sleep quality and appetite stimulation.
The way CBG interacts with the human endocannabinoid system (ECS) differs significantly from how CBD does. While CBD interacts with ECS receptors indirectly, CBG actually binds itself directly to ECS receptors like CB1 and CB2.
BENEFITS OF CBG OIL
While much more research is necessary before CBG’s therapeutic properties are confirmed by health authorities, the limited number of studies that have been conducted so far indicate CBG may indeed confer a number of benefits for a variety of conditions, for example:
- Inflammatory bowel disease. CBG appeared to reduce inflammation arising from inflammatory bowel disease, in a 2013 study conducted on mice.
- Glaucoma. A 2008 study suggests that CBG may play a role in treating glaucoma by helping to reduce intraocular pressure.
- Bladder dysfunctions. A 2015 study concluded that, out of five cannabinoids being studied, CBG showed the most promise for helping treat bladder dysfunctions.

WILL CBG GET ME HIGH?
No. Cannabigerol (CBG) like cannabidiol (CBD), is mildly psychoactive but not psychotropic, and produce no intoxicating effects. At high doses, CBG can produce deep relaxation and euphoria, but for the most part these effects are not psychological.
