The Mother of All Cannabinoids – CBG

All humans have what’s called an endocannabinoid system in our bodies. It’s mainly used to relay messages and modulate between our immune system, nerves, and almost all our organ systems. This means that cannabinoids are a natural part of our anatomy. CBG is often referred to as the mother of all cannabinoids because most other cannabinoids are acidic derivates of CBG.

Perhaps outside of its therapeutic properties, one of the most important health related benefits of CBG lies in its ability to combat pain without having an intoxicating effect like THC. Furthermore, CBG has medicinal qualities that help patients suffering from Glaucoma, Cancer, Crohn’s disease, and irritable bowel syndrome.

CBG is well known for its antibacterial, antifungal, and antiparasitic properties. It has also shown promise as an anticancer compound because it has shown the ability to stymie the growth of cancer cells. Another benefit of CBG is its part in the reduction of inflammation without causing psychiatric activity. More benefits have been listed below.

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease – CBG research has shown results that it can reduce inflammation and nitric oxide production, and the reactive oxygen species in the intestines of mice.
  • Bacterial Infections – CBG has proven to produce great against a difficult to treat, drug-resistant, staph infection called methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus.
  • Glaucoma – CBG reduces eye pressure and increases fluid that maintains eye pressure and adds nutrition to the eye, aqueous humor outflow.
  • Colon Cancer – CBG inhibits colon carcinogenesis by blocking TRPM8 channels that promote cancer cell growth. It also inhibited the production of colorectal cancer cells.

There are many ways to ingest CBG. It can be smoked, vaped, or ingested with CBG capsules.
