Cannabis CBG: The Most Important Molecular in All Vertebrates

Cannabigerol, or CBG, is a molecule that rivals the potential of its peer cannabinoids and terpenes (the molecules that give cannabis its aroma and also possess medicinal qualities). Of the hundreds of unique chemicals produced by the herbal species cannabis Sativa, none plays a more pivotal role than CBG. This molecule has been found to have significant medical benefits in modern science. It can be used as an antioxidant, antibiotic agent against bacteria (including drug-resistant MRSA), an anti-inflammatory compound, an inhibitor for pain perception, and an immune system booster. CBG also has been found to have a variety of anticarcinogenic properties, including downregulation of Id-l (a key protein that causes aggressive breast cancer cells) as well as tumor cell apoptosis induction.

CBG is shown to possess the ability to inhibit tumor cell growth and spreading as well. In addition, CBG has been found to show extremely high potential for treating neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Tourette Syndrome (TS), Huntington’s disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and PTSD in humans. Research on CBG-based therapies is still in their infancy but we can expect significant contributions from this molecule soon enough!

CBG takes center stage because it provides a host of benefits that rival its more popular cannabinoid counterpart THC. Unlike THC however, CBN does not produce any psychoactive effects when consumed by itself or with other cannabinoids like CBD or CBC. This makes CBN an attractive option for those looking for relief without the high. CBG is a major component of many cannabis strains and can be found in some CBD oils such as Charlotte’s Web Extract that have been bred specifically to extract more CBG than other cannabinoids like THC or CBD.

CBG: The Pivotal Molecule in Cannabis and All Mammals

The cannabis plant contains a family of about 80 chemicals called cannabinoids. CBG is unique among its peers due to the pivotal role that it plays in the synthesis of other cannabinoids and the overall chemical composition of the plant. This fact would be trivial if not for the considerable potential of this family of molecules for humans (and all mammals) that has been revealed by thousands of peer-reviewed research studies.

A recent report published in the Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology provides insights into CBG and how it may protect brain health. The study found that CBG treatment, when combined with standard anti-inflammatory drugs used to treat neuroinflammation, resulted in a reduction of about 40% in inflammation markers associated with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). In addition to protecting neurons from damage caused by inflammatory processes, this family member has been shown to possess antidepressant properties as well as anticonvulsant effects.

The CBG molecule is non-psychoactive and, interestingly enough, it does share some structural similarities with THC. Interestingly enough, CBG has been known to produce therapeutic benefits in the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease as well as depression. Studies have shown that people who suffer from these conditions will respond positively to cannabinoids such as CBG, CBD, or CBC.

This means that CBG may have a significant role in treating Alzheimer’s Disease as well as depression. The most common therapeutic uses of CBG are for pain relief, seizure disorders, and inflammation reduction which can be found by reading the list below:

  • Pain relief from headaches, arthritis, or other types of chronic pain
  • Reduction of seizures resulting from epilepsy or various forms of brain injury (such as strokes)
  • Reducing severe inflammatory conditions like Crohn’s disease or colitis without serious side effects.

The CBG molecule is non-psychoactive and interestingly enough it does share some structural similarities with THC. Interestingly enough, studies have shown that people who suffer from these conditions will respond positively to cannabinoids such as CBG because of their ability to interact with the receptors in our brain that are responsible for pain, seizures, and inflammation.
