What is CBG and Why Should You Know About it?

As science and research continue to showcase the multitudes of benefits and purposes of the hemp plant, we turn our attention over to CBG. While considered a minor cannabinoid for the low concentration percentage at harvest, this minor cannabinoid is believed to have some major potential benefits.

What is CBG? 

 CBG stands for Cannabigerol and it is one of the over one hundred identified cannabinoids found in the Cannabis family of plants. Cannabinoids are chemical compounds that are synthesized inside as the hemp plant grows. Once the plant has been harvested, the hemp flowers go through an extraction process which allows for products to be made with them.

Cannabigerol (CBG) is often referred to as the “mother” or “stem cell” cannabinoid. This is because of how the cannabinoids begin. While CBD can come from CBDA – the acidic precursor of CBD – it can also come from CBGA, the precursor for CBG. This means that CBG is actually able to start as CBGA but end as CBG, CBD or THC. This is one of the reasons why only 1% of the plant’s flowers, at harvest, have CBG.

This ability to manifest into multiple end cannabinoids has science fascinated as it is, so far, the only one that has been found to be multifaceted in that way. This could also be what leads to the potential abilities and benefits that CBG is being linked to.

What are some benefits of CBG?

Of the studies that have been conducted so far, CBG has many benefits similar to CBD. It is believed to be equally, if not stronger, in its anti-inflammatory properties. CBG has also been found linked to being able to potentially combat MRSA, an often-overwhelming bacterial issue. There have been other studies that have looked into CBG’s abilities in regard to intestinal issues and helping those who may be suffering from problems within their regularity and motility. 

What is even more exciting is how many have found that pairing CBG with CBD helps CBD work with its many potential benefits with more efficiency. By putting the two together, they work in tandem for more reach and efficacy. 

How does CBG work?

Like all cannabinoids – plant and body made – CBG will interact with your body’s own endocannabinoid system. The Endocannabinoid System (ECS) was discovered in the 1990’s and has been found to be a major part of your body being able to enjoy an internal balance known as homeostasis. This system works alongside your central and peripheral nervous systems as well as in immune cells and with certain organs. When the plant cannabinoids are enjoyed in their various forms, they align with the body’s endocannabinoids and are utilized in various capacities, taken in by the body’s cannabinoid receptors.

From neuroprotection to battling inflammation, the ECS and Cannabinoid combination has been found to have many positive effects for mammals. 

How can someone get CBG?

CBG is found in various products just as CBD is. Because of its smaller concentration in the plant, it is found added to blends or with plant genetics influencing the end crop. At Kurativ, we have found that the best way to provide CBG options is by putting together options with real ratios and exciting formulations.

We offer CBG in both isolate as well as in full spectrum blends. Our CBD / CBG gummies are one of the more popular choices as the gummies provide a well-regarded CBD to CBG ratio while also being in a convenient, portable and tasty formulation. Of course, we also offer the blends in tincture oils and our topical relief creams.
