What is CBG or Cannabigerol?
Cannabigerol or otherwise referred to as “CBG” in acronym form, is one of the several fascinating cannabinoids found within hemp and cannabis. It only makes up roughly 1 percent of total cannabinoids commonly found in hemp and cannabis strains, making it what’s considered a “minor cannabinoid”. Though it is often found in limited qualities, research has shown that CBG is most abundant during the early stages of plant development and growth. Cannabigerol is believed to be a precursor to many other cannabinoids for this very reason.
Just as with Cannabidiol or “CBD”, there is growing evidence to suggest a wide array of therapeutic benefits. So far, issues related to inflammation are showing the most promise, but please check with a physician before starting any new supplement.
