CBG - THE MOTHER AND HER ENTOURAGE

I’ve been reading a lot about CBG and its benefits, and when a friend told me about the success she had in relieving some pain issues with a CBG gummy, I ordered a CBG-heavy strain from my trusted hemp wholesaler and began processing it into an ingestible oil.

So what is CBG?  CBG, or cannabigerol, is also known as “the mother of all cannabinoids” because it is the precursor to many other cannabinoids, including CBD and THC. In the cannabis plant, CBG is first produced in the form of cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which is then converted into other forms of cannabinoids through a process called biosynthesis. Enzymes in the plant convert CBGA into cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA). These acids are then decarboxylated to produce CBD, THC, and CBC respectively. Mother Cannabinoid CBG is responsible for producing the other active compounds found in the cannabis plant (As a side note, hemp is a cannabis plant that contains 0.3% or less THC).

What entourage?

CBG is believed to play an important role in the ENTOURAGE EFFECT. The entourage effect is a phenomenon where different compounds in cannabis, like CBG, CBD and THC, work together to enhance each other’s effects. It’s kind of like a team effort. CBG can boost the effectiveness of other cannabinoids like CBD and THC.  Are you intrigued?

So what makes CBG so special?

One of the biggest benefits of CBG is its ability to alleviate pain and inflammation. Whether you’re dealing with chronic pain or just the occasional ache, CBG can help ease your discomfort and get you back to feeling like yourself. 

CBG also has anti-anxiety and anti-depressant properties, making it a great option for those looking to improve their psychological well-being. It can help reduce stress and anxiety and improve your mood.

But, CBG isn’t just good for physical health. It can also promote a sense of calm and relaxation, without giving you the psychoactive “high” feeling like THC can. It’s great for reducing anxiety and stress.

CBG is also becoming relevant for the skincare market: Studies have shown that CBG can reduce sebum production and fight off those pesky zits. It’s also got antibacterial properties, so it can protect your skin from infection and inflammation (Do I see a CBG face serum in my future?)
