Cannabigerol, known as CBG, is a phytocannabinoid, which unlike THC, and exactly like CBD is not psychotropic. CBG was identified for the first time in 1964 by Yehiel Gaoni and is composed of cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), one of the first cannabinoids formed in the cannabis plant.
CBG is considered an antagonist of the CB1 receptor of the endocannabinoid system.
What does this mean?
It means that it can inhibit the effects of the CB1 agonists, especially of THC, and hence interfere with the effects of other cannabinoids.
It is often called the father of all cannabinoids and not by case: like a caring father, CBG “yields” to the needs of nature, giving life to the other compounds of Cannabis, like CBD e THC.
The italian Study on CBG
A study carried out by researchers of the department of Pharmacy of the University of Naples, Federico II, in collaboration with medical professionals of the Diagnostic department of the Pellegrini Hospital in Naples and researchers of the CNR in Pozzuoli, has demonstrated the action of CBG in a case of intestinal inflammation and arrived to the conclusion that “cannabigerol is a new therapeutic opportunity for those suffering from this disorder”.
With all these characteristics we would like to underline some of the best ways to take Cannabigerol.
The Therapeutic Potential of CBG
In 2015, researchers of the Department of Biochemistry and molecular Biology of the Complutense University of Madrid, have demonstrated the neuroprotectant properties of CBG.
The researchers used two different in vivo models of the Huntington’s Disease in mice, which is characterized by a progressive collapse of the nervous cells in the brain.
The study discovered that CBG was highly active as a neuroprotectant, improving motor deficiencies and protecting the neurons at the same time.
If we take too much CBG, which are the possible side effects?
Scientific research on CBG isn’t substantial at the moment, as it could be on CBD for example, however, when we talk about the side effects, we should part from the premise that each substance, also water, taken in excessive dosages can create side effects.
CBG taken in the right quantities does not produce side effects, nor have we got direct evidence of adverse effects caused by Cannabigerol.
Taking the case of ‘CBD’ we could state that a possible “side” effect could be related to an excessive sense of dryness, which is due to the cannabinoid receptors present in the submandibular glands, which are responsible for the production of saliva.
Do you want to know exactly how many milligrams of CBG to consume?
Listening to oneself is the right answer; if we decide to use CBG oil, our recommendation is to start with a few drops and then find the dosage necessary for our individual needs, increasing or diminishing the dosage.
If you are considering using CBG it’s important and recommended to consult a doctor.
