CBG is considered the mother of all phytocannabinoids in the cannabis Sativa plant. CBGa was discovered as the first cannabinoid to form in cannabis Sativa plants and through enzymatic processes, CBGa is broken down into CBDa and THCa (and other cannabinoids). The native form of these cannabinoids is then transformed into free-form CBD, CBG, and THC in the presence of heat, via a process called decarboxylation.
CBG is a perfect complement to CBD, as they work differently in the body. When isolated, each cannabinoid has its own beneficial properties, but when you combine CBD with CBG, the effects of both are amplified.
CBD works to stimulate the production of endocannabinoids that are already produced by your body. CBD also helps to regulate your endocannabinoid system if it is under or over-producing endocannabinoids, promoting balance or homeostasis. CBG reacts with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the endocannabinoid system in the body. When taken together “The Entourage Effect” is maximized.
CBG works to fight inflammation, pain, and nausea. Research has shown it also significantly reduces intraocular eye pressure caused by glaucoma. CBG also exhibits antibacterial and antifungal properties. You may want to consider taking this CBG:CBD formula if you suffer from glaucoma, IBS, or Crohn’s Disease.
