If you are updated about what is happening in the cannabis market, you might have heard of the recently studied cannabinoid called CBG. The cannabis, or also known as Mother Nature’s most giving plant, has a lot to offer, and some of them have not been discovered yet.
So, what is CBG?
A lot of cannabis enthusiasts must be curious about this recent discovery in the cannabis market. Read on to know more about this cannabinoid.
What is CBG?
CBG, or also known as Cannabigerol, is one of the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant that is not hallucinogenic. It is also a non-acidic cannabinoid that came from CBGA or Cannabigerolic Acid.
If the cannabis plant starts its flowering process, the CBG component starts into other cannabinoids such as the two well-known cannabinoids, THC and CBD. If the said process has matured or completed, there would be less than 1% of the CBG content in the plant.
What are the Benefits of CBG?
Like other cannabinoids, this cannabinoid also has CBG medical benefits. A scientist who has studied this cannabinoid is thrilled about what they had discovered.
Here are some of the benefits of CBG:
- Bone stimulant

In general, cannabis plants that are bred to contain high THC contents will provide a low level of CBG, which means that THC-rich plants do not produce a lot of CBG. At the meaning of this article, it was already mentioned that CBG is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid.
Cannabis plants rich in CBG are those that have high CBD content. As you already know, strains rich in CBD do not give you the feeling of high.
With that said, it means that CBG could not give you the feeling of high since it came from CBD-rich strains and not from THC-rich strains.
Research about this type of cannabinoid is still on-going, but scientists are already excited about what this cannabinoid could do. A lot of individuals can benefit from its medical-related usage.
