Highest Quality CBG oil with 250mg cannabigerol from CBD Guru
What is CBG (Cannabigerol)?
Without CBG, THC and CBD wouldn’t exist.
Isolated from hashish in the mid-60’s and thought to be a compound of it, it wasn’t until 1975 that CBGa was discovered as the first cannabinoid to form in cannabis sativa plants. It’s the precursor to all cannabinoids, and there are over 100 of them. Through an enzymatic process, CBGa is broken down into CBDa and THCa which is then transformed through heat into psychoactive THC and non-psychoactive CBD.
Due to low concentrations, less than 1%, in plants with high THC content, CBG hasn’t gotten a lot of attention, but that’s rapidly changing. Hemp plants contain higher amounts of CBG, especially during specific growth times, and scientists are learning ways to produce strains that contain even more.
Since CBG has been isolated and studied and its potential benefits are becoming known, researchers around the globe believe it may have a significant impact on mental, physical and emotional health. While it’s known that CBG works with the body’s endocannabinoid receptors, it appears to work with many other receptor systems as well.
What is the Difference Between CBG and CBD?
CBG is the parent molecule of CBD and THC. Unlike THC, both CBG and CBD are non-psychoactive, meaning they won’t get you high. They have unique chemical structures and occur in different concentrations in the plant.
Isolated, each cannabinoid has its own beneficial properties, many that overlap, but when CBD and CBG are taken together, the benefits of the CBD last longer and are more pronounced. CBG also amplifies the other cannabinoids in broad spectrum products.
Here’s how it works. CBD works with FAAH to stimulate anandamide and the production of endocannabinoids in the body. If your system is under or over-producing, CBD helps to regulate it. CBG interacts with the receptors, and together they open the gates for healing.
