What is CBG?
Potential CBG Benefits
It’s worth keeping in mind that this is not definitive since the compound is yet to go through clinical trials. While studies are showing potential, the assertations are, as of now, unfounded.
Pain Relief The hemp/cannabis plant is renowned for its pain-relieving potential. According to one study, 97 percent of people who use cannabis use it for chronic pain. A National Academy of Sciences study reported that cannabis is quite useful when it comes to relieving pain. While pain relief is generally attributed to THC, some studies on CBGA and CBG suggest that both compounds may be helpful when it comes to pain relief and might even be more effective than either CBD or THC.
Anti-Inflammatory Properties CBG and CBGA may also be useful as anti-inflammatory agents. According to scientists, there’s a possibility that both compounds can be of benefit to people suffering from inflammatory conditions like IBD (inflammatory bowel disease). A study looking at the effect CBG has on IBD was performed on mice subjects. After being induced with colitis, the mice subjects were then given CBG, which effectively relieved inflammation – this shows that CBG has the potential to ease inflammation in humans.
Improved Brain Health Cannabigerol is probably best known for its potential to act as a neuroprotectant. This may be because of its anti-inflammatory properties, considering that brain inflammation plays a significant role in neurodegeneration. Studies on how CBG affects mice subjects altered to mimic Huntington’s disease. It was found that the compound not only eased inflammation but also served as an active neuroprotectant against brain degeneration. In different studies, the compound has been found to promote neurogenesis.
Antibacterial Properties According to researchers, cannabigerol has shown the potential to serve as an active antibacterial agent, especially when it comes to bacterial strains such as MRSA resistant to common antibiotics. It’s been found that the compound’s ability to manage a particular class of mycobacteria, fungi, and bacteria known as ‘gram-positive bacteria’ is far more superior than that of CBD, CBD, or THC. Scientists are hopeful that these properties will soon be exploited to create new and more effective antibacterial treatment.
Woman with glassesEye Health It is believed that cannabigerol may also be able to help manage glaucoma due to its ability to reduce intraocular pressure. There are many endocannabinoid receptors in our eyes that can be activated by different cannabinoids such as CBG. When these receptors are activated, the result could be a relief for intraocular pressure. While most cannabinoids have been suggested to help with this, several studies suggest that cannabigerol might be especially helpful with expediting the draining of fluids and decreasing intraocular pressure.
CBG and Cancer CBG has also shown promise when it comes to fighting cancer. According to scientists, the compound has demonstrated that it can block the receptors that promote cancer-causing cells’ growth. In a study on mice subjects with colorectal cancer, cannabigerol was able to hamper cancerous cells’ growth, effectively decelerating the disease’s progression. While there’s still a lot of research to be done, such studies show CBG’s potential for helping the fight against cancer.
Easing Anxiety and Depression It’s been found that CBG could be beneficial to emotional regulation. Some studies conducted on rats have shown that the compound inhibits GABA and serotonin (neurotransmitters), which could lead to increased GABA and serotonin levels in the brain. This finding seems to suggest that CBG might possess antidepressant qualities. It is worth noting that CBG inhibits the uptake of GABA more effectively than both THC and CBD. Considering that the compound is non-psychoactive, this is promising news as it could serve as a useful cannabinoid alternative to tetrahydrocannabinol when it comes to alleviated depression.
Useful Bladder Dysfunction Aid Cannabigerol may also be useful for managing bladder dysfunctions. There are lots of individual stories out there about how cannabis has helped people with bladder problems. One study was conducted to see how four cannabinoids – CBDV, CBD, THCV, and CBG – affect bladder contractions. By the end of the study, the researchers found that cannabigerol was the most effective in inhibiting muscle contractions in the bladder and concluded that it might prove beneficial for treating the different, uncomfortable symptoms related to bladder disorders.
Psoriasis Psoriasis is a condition that affects the skin causing it to redden or thicken. CBG may help by inhibiting this effect, effectively preventing the symptoms. While more studies are still needed, it’s worth noting that CBG has shown the potential to be a useful tool in fighting skin conditions.
Partnered With C8 MCT Oil
MCTs have been shown to offer the following benefits:
Better gut and cognitive health. A pure C8 MCT oil comes packed with potent antimicrobial properties that can help you keep harmful bacteria in check while still maintaining a healthy gut balance. If you improve your gut health, you have a better chance to experience greater mental alertness and memory[*]. Satiation after meals for much longer. Healthy fats like MCTs curb cravings and help you reach that full feeling much sooner, two things that can aid in weight loss.
Prevent and treat diabetes. MCTs have also been studied for their insulin-regulating properties, which can help prevent and treat type 2 diabetes[*]. Improve your exercise performance. One study confirmed that when cyclists consumed MCTs during their two-hour endurance ride, they improved their overall performance times[*].
There’s one more question you’re probably asking: Doesn’t coconut oil contain MCTs?
The short answer is yes, you will find MCTs in coconut oil. But 100% C8 MCT oil is much better.
