What is CBG?

October 25, 2020

CBGA is the chemical precursor to CBD, referred to as the "stem cell" of the plant, and plays a pivotal role in the biochemistry of the cannabis plant. During the flowering cycle, cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) can be converted into cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), the precursor of CBD, by enzymes. Once this phase is complete, the plant only contains trace amounts of CBGA, which can be decarboxylated into CBG. To capture large amounts of CBG, you must harvest young cannabis plants.

CBG interacts with both the CB1 and CB2 receptors. CBG has demonstrated an ability to increase anandamide, commonly referred to as the “bliss molecule,” an endogenous cannabinoid that helps regulate a wide range of bodily functions, including appetite, sleep, mood, and the immune system without the impairing effects of THC.
