All About the Mother Molecule Cannabigerol

By Star Barnes September 09, 2020

CBD and THC are the front-runners of cannabis research, and while that makes sense, there is so much to be found among the other 110-plus cannabinoids present in the plant. In fact, CBD and THC actually stem from a cannabinoid called cannabigerol (CBG). CBG, coined the mother molecule to CBD and THC, is the essential precursor to these cannabinoids and has fascinating qualities. 


While CBG is the predecessor of CBD and THC, the molecule is late to the game as far as research goes. Discovered in the mid twentieth century, CBG wasn’t actually studied until much later which was partially due to the low concentration of CBG present in matured cannabis plants. CBG also isn’t psychotropic like THC, which may have played a part in the lack of research. However, just because cannabigerol hasn’t had a chance in the spotlight, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its own unique properties and potential benefits. Some studies have pointed towards CBG having antibacterial properties, and may even help to treat bacterial infections that are antibiotic resistant. Research also shows evidence that CBG has antioxidant properties as well as anti-inflammatory properties which may help to prevent neurodegeneration


CBD is often praised for anti-inflammatory properties, though research suggests that CBG actually exerts different beneficial effects. This may be why many people choose CBG products over -- or in conjunction with -- CBD products. Some people will use CBG for the same reasons they were using CBD, though they tend to report that CBG works better for them across the board. Many others will also use CBG for anything ranging from pain to stress, to even nausea, bone related diseases or even eye pressure and pain. Further research may reveal even more uses for CBG. 



There is so much more research to be done with CBG, though the studies so far show intriguing results. Outside of the available research, we also see a lot of customers getting interesting results from our CBG products, like the Water Soluble CBG tincture. Some people end up preferring CBG after trying it, so it is certainly worth taking a look at!
