CBG, or cannabigerol, is another non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in hemp plants. It is naturally present in low levels (usually less than 1%) in most cannabis strains, so higher concentrations are obtained through selective breeding. CBG is a precursor chemical for the production of CBD and THC and shares many of the beneficial properties of the two cannabinoids, but has a unique way of stimulating receptors in the human body.
CBG has been found to have a range of properties, including anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer qualities, and can be beneficial to maintaining health and the immune system. When used correctly and in combination with a varied diet, CBG can support a healthy lifestyle.
