What is Cannabigerol (CBG)?
Cannabigerol (CBG) is one of the five main cannabinoids found in the cannabis genus of plants. CBG is non-psychoactive and has been shown to have multiple medical properties. CBG is found in high quantities in hemp plants.
Cannabigerol (CBG) You Need To Know What This Is!
First, here is the definition according to Wikipedia:
CBG is a cannabinoid found in the Cannabis genus of plants. Cannabigerol is found in higher concentrations in hemp rather than in varieties of cannabis cultivated for high tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) content and their corresponding psychoactive properties. By the time most strains of cannabis are cultivated, they will have trace amounts of CBG, somewhere below 1%. Cannabigerol has been found to act as a high affinity α2-adrenergic receptor agonist, moderate affinity 5-HT1A receptor antagonist, and low affinity CB1 receptor antagonist. It also binds to the CB2 receptor, but whether it acts as an agonist or antagonist at this site is unknown.
Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA) Is The Primary Cannabinoid
The ability to produce cannabigerolic acid (CBGA) is what makes the cannabis plant unique. It is the precursor to the three major branches of cannabinoids: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA). The plant has natural enzymes, called synthases, that break the CBGA down and mold it toward the desired branch. The plant’s synthases (THC-synthase, CBD-synthase, CBC-synthase) are named for after the cannabinoid they help create.
When any of the cannabinoid acids are exposed to heat, or prolonged UV light, they lose a molecule of carbon dioxide (CO2). At this point, they are considered to be in the neutral form (CBG, THC, CBD, CBC, etc.). In most medicinal strains, CBGA is immediately converted to another cannabinoid and is not typically found in high concentrations. However, if a strain is high in CBGA, then smoking it would cause it to change to cannabigerol (CBG).
