More than ever, people are putting their health first. Cannabis is a holistic plant, and whether consumed as a whole food, or in its various parts, it heals, nourishes, and supports mind, body and soul. While you may be familiar with THC or CBD, do you know about the lesser known, yet equally powerful CBG — “the Mother of all Cannabinoids"?
What is CBG?
CBG (Cannabigerol) is the acidic form and “parent” molecule of CBD and THC. As this piece by Terasana Clinical breaks down, CBD and THC can’t exist without the raw form of CBG. However, CBG does not contain CBD or THC. How so? The post explains, “In order for CBG to become something else, it must convert the raw, acidic form of CBG into CBD and THC cannabinoids. If the CBG is extracted prior to that conversion, it remains pure and potent with no psychoactive properties present.”
All the Healing. None of the High. Because CBG does not contain the psychoactive properties seen in THC, it only has one job in mind: total healing. Though research is still in its early stages, CBG has been found to provide a diverse range of healing benefits, including (but not limited to):
Healthy inflammatory function
Neurogenesis support (new brain cell growth)

Important note: Research on the benefits and side effects of CBG is in the early phase. As always, please conduct your own research prior to partaking in cannabis for recreational or medical needs.
