Cannabigerol (CBG) is a cannabinoid, which means it is one of many chemical compounds found in cannabis plants. The best-known cannabinoids are cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), but there has recently been more interest in the potential benefits of CBG.

CBG is considered the precursor to other cannabinoids. This is because CBG-A, the acid form of CBG, breaks down to form CBG, CBD, THC, and CBC (cannabichromene, another cannabinoid) when heated.
CBG is considered a minor cannabinoid. Some cannabis strains have been bred to produce high levels of CBG from CBGA produced early in the plant's life cycle, foregoing the production of other cannabinoids. Like CBD and THC, CBG interacts with CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors found throughout the body.
In its natural form, CBG is bound to the hemp plant. Although there are ways to use the CBG found in the plant, such as smoking or cooking with the material, these options are not appealing to many people. Pure CBG isolate is a powdery substance. However, CBG isolate powder lacks other health-promoting cannabinoids and terpenes, and mostly loses the entourage effect. One way to produce CBG oil is to reconstitute the oil from CBG isolate and a carrier oil, with the option of adding other cannabinoids and terpenes to recreate the entourage effect. . CBG oil can also be produced from the aerial parts of CBG-dominant hemp strains, which naturally contain other cannabinoids (like CBD) and terpenes found in the plant.
CBG oil would be great for many things, including supporting health and well-being. Although we are still discovering the full capabilities of CBG oil, studies show that CBG has a similar effect on the mind as CBD oil. And while there is little evidence so far on the side effects of CBG oil, its close cannabis relatives generally have good safety profiles for humans.
In summary, the cannabinoid CBG is known in particular for supporting the digestive system and for the almost coffee-like energy and focus it provides. It is also known to support healthy skin, and like CBD, the effects of CBG can also help manage daily stress and maintain a positive mood.
