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: Bone stimulant, Brain cell stimulant, Antidepressant, Anti-proliferative, Appetite stimulant, Anti-insomnia, Anti-inflammatory, Anti-convulsive, Antibacterial, Analgesia,
- CBG can act as a highly potent α2-adrenoceptor agonist and moderately potent 5HT1A receptor antagonist, which may lead reduced anxiety, and possibly a reduction in anhedonia/PSSD, since 5-HT1A receptors play a key role in this condition (5).
- CBG may increase natural levels of anandamide (also known as the “bliss molecule”) in the brain, thereby offering anxiety relief (6).
- CBG may have a neuroprotective effect by protecting against cognitive decline. This may be true for people dealing with serious neurological conditions such as Huntington’s disease. These same properties may also prove helpful for people with Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease (6).
- CBG may have anti-tumor effects. A few animal studies have suggested that CBG may slow the progression of certain cancers, including breast, colon, and prostate cancers. Additionally, CBG may stimulate appetite, thereby helping to counteract one of the effects of chemotherapy (7)
- CBG may offer pain relief. CBG may have pain-relieving properties. This is true for other cannabinoids including CBD and THC, but there’s some evidence that CBG may have even more pain-relieving properties than THC (1).
CBG may function as a natural muscle relaxant. CBG may also help relax muscles. For this reason, CBG may be useful for the management of sports injuries or chronic pain (1).
- CBG may have antibacterial, antifungal, and antimicrobial properties (2)
- CBG may help strengthen bones. It plays a role in stimulating bone marrow growth. While more research is needed, this suggests CBG might be able to assist in the healing of bone fractures and possibly protect against osteoporosis (3).
- CBG may soothe inflammatory bowel disease, by reducing inflammation in the lower bowel. Meanwhile, a 2018 study found that cannabinoids in general may help turn off the body’s inflammatory response in the gut (4).

CBG is often referred to as “the mother cannabinoid”. When a cannabis plant is in the early stages of its life cycle, it produces cannabigerolic acid (CBGA). As the plant begins to reach maturity, it will begin to break down the CBGA and convert it to tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCA). From there, the acid forms of each compound will convert to the compounds we are familiar with. CBDA converts to CBD, THCA converts to THC, and CBCA converts to CBC
CBG is a hot new compound that is going to be extremely popular in the next 12 months. I highly recommend keeping a lookout for the latest research.
