CBG is considered the “Mother of Cannabinoids” because, in its acidic form of CBGA, it’s the precursor to most all cannabinoids. When the hemp plant grows, CBGA branches off into the three primary cannabinoids of CBDA, or cannabidiolic acid, CBCA, or cannabichromene acid, and THCA, or tetrahydrocannabinol acid. Only in the chemical process of decarboxylation does CBGA become CBG, CBDA become CBD, CBCA become CBC, and THCA become THC. When CBG is taken into the body, it interacts with the brain’s cannabinoid receptors — in particular, the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Interestingly, CBG may also stimulate the receptors for pain, inflammation, and heat sensitivity.
Researchers are starting to notice the many potential benefits of CBG. It’s still early, but there is optimism surrounding CBG for the treatment of a wide variety of conditions:
Antibacterial: McMaster University researchers found that CBG has antifungal and antimicrobial properties so potent that it can even fight off a bacterial strain like MRSA, which is notoriously resistant to antibiotics. CBG is shown to be a superior bacteria fighter to THC, CBD, or CBC.
Anti-inflammatory: CBG shows potential to treat inflammatory conditions like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). One 2013 study published in the journal, Biochemical Pharmacology, found that CBG reduced inflammation in mice with colitis.
Anxiety and depression: CBG may also help with anxiety by inhibiting the uptake of serotonin and GABA, which regulate our mood. This suggests CBG may have antidepressant qualities.
Bladder dysfunction: According to a study published in the Indian Journal of Urology, CBG has been found to be more effective than other cannabinoids at inhibiting muscle contractions in the human bladder, which may help treat symptoms of many bladder disorders.
Cancer: Cannabics Pharmaceuticals funded a study that showed CBG killing gastrointestinal cancer cells. CBG inhibited the growth of cancer cells, displayed anti-tumor properties, and slowed down disease progression. The study, led by a team of Israeli researchers, found CBG to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells. CBG may also stimulate appetite, which could help counteract one of the effects of chemotherapy.
Muscle relaxant: CBG may function as a natural muscle relaxant, according to a study authored by Ethan B Russo at GW Pharmaceuticals. This could make CBG useful for the management of sports injuries and/or chronic pain.
Neuroprotectant: CBG shows the potential to fight against cognitive decline. A 2015 study published in the journal Neurotherapeutics says CBG may be able to help those dealing with a serious neurological condition such as Huntington’s disease. Because of its potential for the treatment of Huntington’s disease, CBG may also be able to help with other neurological conditions like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease.
Pain Relief: A study from the British Journal of Pharmacology found that CBG may have strong pain-relieving properties. In fact, it was found to be more effective at treating pain than even the likes of THC.
Psoriasis: Evidence suggests that the way CBG interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system might also make it a viable treatment option for psoriasis. Human trials are underway in a study funded by AXIM Biotech and conducted by world-renowned dermatologist and specialist on psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, Dr. Marcus Meinardi, at The Maurits Clinics in The Hague, The Netherlands.
Strengthen bones: CBG may even stimulate bone marrow growth to help strengthen bones and heal fractures, perhaps even to protect against the development of osteoporosis, according to research from the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies and John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Does CBG Give You Energy?
CBG is known for its energy-boosting effects that are often compared to a caffeine rush. However, it should be noted that CBG does not have any stimulating properties like THC.
Several users enjoy the boost in energy, concentration, and creativity that CBG provides. Additionally, some users also state that CBG helps maintain a good mood and manage daily stress.
Others use CBG to improve their concentration over more extended periods for increased levels of productivity. Besides, with its dropper tincture, you can easily control the dose of CBG oil.
