Frequently Asked Questions
What is CBG?
CBG (Cannabigerol) is a non-psychoactive phytocannabinoid found in the hemp plant. It is considered a “minor cannabinoid” due to the low presence of CBG found in fully grown hemp. It is also the precursor molecule to both CBD and THC which has earned it the nickname “the mother molecule”. CBG acts directly on the CB1 and CB2 receptors in the brain, allowing for it to have a more powerful effect than CBD. More and more studies are being done on the therapeutic benefits of CBG products, but the results are already showing unbelievable potential.
