You have heard of CBD and THC But, have you heard about CBG? CBG is known as a minor cannabinoid. But has come to be known as the “Mother of All Cannabinoids”. Its technical term is Cannabigerol,
What is CBG and why is it called the Mother of All Cannabinoids?
Because all other cannabinoids start out as CBG, well actually it starts out as an acid CBGA when the cannabis plant is young. Once the plant starts to mature CBGA transforms into the cannabinoid CBG. However, CBG only exists in the cannabis plant in small amounts and once it changes into the other cannabinoids it is gone.
CBG has great potential! Some of the studies that have been done show that CBG is:
- An Anti-Bacterial, Anti-Microbiol and Anti-Fungal – so strong it could fight off strains like MRSA
- Is also Anti-inflammatory: it is showing the potential to treat inflammatory conditions like IBD. (studies have only been done on mice with colitis.)
- Bladder dysfunctions – inhibiting muscle contraction in the human bladder- which could help with many other bladder issues.
There has been a recent study showing that CBG can kill gastrointestinal cancer cells. It has also been known to inhibit the growth of cancer cells and it has displayed anti-tumor properties.
Recently a team of Israeli researchers found CBD to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells, more research is being done on this.
If someone is on Chemo it may also stimulate appetite.
Muscle relaxant – great for sports injuries and/or chronic pain. If you are someone that works out, in any shape or form CBG may be an excellent choice to relax those inflamed and sore muscles.
Neuroprotectant – CBG may help to keep your brain healthy and at the same time protect us from cognitive decline. There is a study that shows CBG may help with more serious neurological conditions. Like Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease. And may prove to be helpful for Parkinson’s.
There is a study showing that CBG may strengthen bones and help stimulate bone marrow growth and may help protect against developing Osteoporosis. Another study shows that it might be an alternative option for Psoriasis. There are studies that have shown that CBG may help with Glaucoma by helping to lower the interocular pressure.
CBG is worth adding to your supplement routine.
And just like CBD, it will not give you a high, actually, we at nonaoils.com feel that CBG is such an amazing cannabinoid we had to add it to our Inventory. So, if you need it we now carry a 750mg CBG oil.
THC FREE CBG
At nonaoils.com also did not want the possibility of THC showing up in a drug test for first responders or Drug-Free workplaces, that is why we chose to do a CBG Isolate that contains zero THC.
CBD vs CBG
One very distinct difference is that CBG works directly with our CB1 and CB2 receptors in our brains. CB1 receptors are dominantly found in our brain. CBD works indirectly with our CB1 and CB2 receptors. You see we all have an endocannabinoid system; this system is involved with every system in our bodies and may be involved in regulating physiological and cognitive processes, including fertility, pregnancy, pre and postnatal development. The activities of our immune system, appetite, pain, mood, and memory.
Our bodies make cannabinoids naturally that interact with the cannabinoid receptors. Some scientists believe that an endocannabinoid deficiency could be a root cause of many conditions, including depression, migraines, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, IBS, and Parkinson’s.
Seems like a good reason to supplement with CBG or CBD. It is a natural alternative. And Nona Oils makes sure that you are getting high-quality CBG and CBD. You can visit www.nonaoils.com to see all the third-party testing results and while your there check out our CBD products.
