What is CBG? The Mother of All Cannabinoids!

Researchers are starting to notice the many potential benefits of CBG. It’s still early, but there is optimism surrounding CBG for the treatment of a wide variety of conditions: 

Antibacterial: McMaster University researchers found that CBG has antifungal and antimicrobial properties so potent that it can even fight off a bacterial strain like MRSA, which is notoriously resistant to antibiotics. CBG is shown to be a superior bacteria fighter to THC, CBD, or CBC.

Anti-inflammatory: CBG shows potential to treat inflammatory conditions like inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). One 2013 study published in the journal, Biochemical Pharmacology, found that it reduced inflammation in mice with colitis.

Anxiety and depression: CBG may also help with anxiety by inhibiting the uptake of serotonin and GABA, which regulate our mood. This suggests that it may have antidepressant qualities.

Bladder dysfunction: According to a study published in the Indian Journal of Urology, CBG has been found to be more effective than other cannabinoids at inhibiting muscle contractions in the human bladder, which may help treat symptoms of many bladder disorders.

Cancer: Cannabics Pharmaceuticals funded a study that showed CBG killing gastrointestinal cancer cells. it inhibited the growth of cancer cells, displayed anti-tumor properties, and slowed down disease progression. The study, led by a team of Israeli researchers, found it to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells. It may also stimulate appetite, which could help counteract one of the effects of chemotherapy.

Muscle relaxant: CBG may function as a natural muscle relaxant, according to a study authored by Ethan B Russo at GW Pharmaceuticals. This could make it very useful for the management of sports injuries and/or chronic pain.

Neuroprotectant: CBG shows the potential to fight against cognitive decline. A 2015 study published in the journal Neurotherapeutics says that this cannabinoid may be able to help those dealing with a serious neurological condition such as Huntington’s disease. Because of its potential for the treatment of Huntington’s disease, it may also be able to help with other neurological conditions like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease.

Pain Relief: A study from the British Journal of Pharmacology found that CBG may have strong pain-relieving properties. In fact, it was found to be more effective at treating pain than even the likes of THC.

Psoriasis: Evidence suggests that the way CBG interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system might also make it a viable treatment option for psoriasis. Human trials are underway in a study funded by AXIM Biotech and conducted by world-renowned dermatologist and specialist on psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, Dr. Marcus Meinardi, at The Maurits Clinics in The Hague, The Netherlands.

Strengthen bones: CBG may even stimulate bone marrow growth to help strengthen bones and heal fractures, perhaps even to protect against the development of osteoporosis, according to research from the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies and John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
