What is CBG? Cannabigerol (CBG) is the precursor to all Cannabinoids. Known as “The Mother of Cannabinoids” (This is because the first identifiable cannabinoid the cannabis plant produces is cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which is then transformed into the biosynthetic precursors to THC and CBD. However, notably, there is little CBG in the final plant.) Importantly, though CBG appears to behave more like THC than CBD at some receptors, CBG also appears to work on different receptors than the ones activated by THC and CBD. Most importantly, CBG seems to be a very powerful agonist of the alpha-2 adrenergic receptor. From a medical standpoint, this is the most “potentially important” discovery. CBG works directly on receptors in our brain and nervous system, including CB1 and CB2 receptors, 5-HT1A and alpha-2 receptors, along with the TRPV1 and 2 receptors, and some other cannabinoid receptors.
That sounds complex, so just know that brain receptors affect our senses, thoughts, mood, and even our central nervous system. CBG may even lessen the effects of paranoia sometimes caused by THC.
