What Is CBG?

CBG (Cannabigerol) is one of the non-psychoactive cannabinoids produced by the cannabis plant that is gaining popularity for its potential therapeutic benefits. It is often referred to as the “Mother of Cannabinoids” because CBD, THC and CBC are derived from CBGA, the acid form of CBG. As the plant develops, CBGA converts into CBDA, THCA, or CBCA with the help of enzymes. When CBGA, CBDA, THCA and CBCA are heated, they decarboxylate and turn into CBG, CBD, THC, and CBC.

Conversion of cannabinoids

Most cannabis strains on the market today have small amounts of CBG because by the time the plant is harvested, most of the CBGA has converted into THCA or CBDA. Some strains have more CBG than others, and the timing of harvest can affect the amount of it in a strain. The research on the therapeutic benefits of CBG is limited, but the studies that have been conducted show promise this cannabinoid may help with various health conditions and symptoms.
