What is Cannabigerol (CBG)

What is Cannabigerol (CBG)

Unlike CBN, which appears after THC disintegrates, the cannabinoid cannabigerol (CBG) is the forerunner of both THC and CBD. ⠀
-⠀
Despite this interesting factoid, CBG is usually ignored because it only makes up about 1 percent of total cannabinoids in the cannabis plant.⠀
-⠀
There is, however, a growing community of cannabis growers who work on breeding plants that will yield higher quantities of CBG. Many in the medical marijuana industry believe this compound could help with a wide variety of issues ranging from digestive disorders to eye disease.⠀
-⠀
For instance, one Polish study showed promising results for CBG’s ability to reduce eye pressure in patients with glaucoma. A few other conditions that CBG seems to help with include colorectal cancer, irritable bowel disease, and bladder issues like interstitial cystitis.⠀
