In the last two decades alone, researchers have made tremendous strides with CBD and other cannabinoids. Obviously, CBD is the most researched cannabinoid for medicinal purposes, but researchers are learning that other cannabinoids may be just as effective as CBD (or even more effective) in treating specific ailments and conditions.
For example, CBG is an exciting cannabinoid that has been researched extensively in the last few years and has been demonstrated to be very significant in treating specific diseases. Green Glass Labs is proud to be one of the few companies that offers CBG isolate for research purposes. Contact us today if you are interested in obtaining CBG isolate.
What is CBG?
CBG is cannabigerol. In the hemp plant, CBG turns into different cannabinoids over time. For example, CBG can turn into CBD, CBC, and even THC. The key to obtaining CBG isolate is to extract the plant early on in its life. In the body, CBG does not turn into anything psychoactive, so it is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid with a lot of potential health benefits. For example, in multiple studies, CBG has been shown to have a neuroregenerative effect.
Indeed, CBG has been shown to have more of a neuroregenerative effect than even CBD! Researchers are seeing neurons heal much more comprehensively with this rare but amazing cannabinoid. Pharmaceutical companies have already started Phase 1 clinical trials with synthetic CBG for this specific purpose.
CBG commonly exists in the hemp plant, although it can only be found in very small concentrations. There is a sweet spot or a proper time during the cultivation period where the plant must be extracted to obtain CBG. If the plant is allowed to grow uninterrupted, the CBG will then turn into different cannibinoids, and there won't be any CBG present when extraction is attempted.
In a way, you could think of CBG as the stem cells of cannabinoids. Just as stem cells in the body turn into other cells, so too, CBG in the hemp plant turns into other cannabinoids.
Additional Benefits of CBG
CBG has also been shown to have an anti-microbial effect, which means it has activity against MRSA, which is a very drug-resistant bacteria. Researchers have witnessed brain neurons grow with CBG in mice neurodegenerative diseases, such as Huntington disease. Further, CBG has been shown to cause an improvement in neurons in cases of Lugerics disease in the mice model.
The science is very young on CBG, but it is also very exciting! It's a very component to include in a broad spectrum hemp-derived CBD oil. Green Glass Labs sells CBG isolate, and all of our products are third-party tested for quality and potency.
