Cannabigerol (CBG) is the third most-prevalent cannabinoid found in the cannabis sativa plant. Like CBD, CBG does not induce psychopharmacological effects, meaning there is no “high” like you may get with THC. Unsure of what CBG is? Check out our blog on CBD vs CBG.
Since CBG strains are a little harder to come by, these powerful products can become expensive and limited. Acrely Farms grew a specific White CBG strain last year, allowing us to create our 1000mg White CBG Tincture. This new Full Spectrum tincture contains a high concentration of CBG, as well as CBD and CBC. This is key to increasing the “entourage effect” – CBG and CBD are synergistic in their effects.
Cannabinoids and Health
In the USA, the FDA doesn’t regulate products made with cannabinoids, which leads to many disclaimers. At Acrely Farms, we take pride in regulating ourselves by growing organically, third-party lab testing our products, and openly sharing the results.
We love research but unfortunately, in the USA, it is difficult for researchers to perform studies involving cannabis and cannabinoids. Let us share with you some exciting research on CBG! It explains why we choose to grow the White plant variety that has naturally high occurring amounts of CBG.
CBG and Anxiety Research
This research suggests that CBG oil could reduce anxiety. Scientists think that CBG inhibits the flow of gaba transmitters in the brain. This would help with reducing anxiety and causing smooth muscle relaxation!
Research with Inflammation and CBG
A 2018 study performed in Italy examined the role of CBG in neuroinflammation. Neuroinflamation is inflammation in the nervous tissue, such as those in the brain or spinal cord.
The study concludes that “thanks to its neuroprotective effects, we encourage the use of CBG against neurodegeneration and.. conditions where neuroinflammation and oxidative stress play a main role”.
CBG and Cancer Research
CBG’s ability to inhibit cancer cells in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most aggressive primary brain tumor, was published in 2020.
In summary, scientists stated “CBG can destroy therapy-resistant glioblastoma stem cells, which are the root of cancer development and extremely resistant to various other treatments of this lethal cancer. CBG should present a new yet unexplored adjuvant treatment strategy of glioblastoma”.
The study states that CBG has a clear anti-tumor effect. It can also help reduce pain and ward off chemotherapy-induced-nausea while increasing appetite. This appetite control may also be of benefit to those with other appetite suppressing diseases such as HIV.
A 2014 Italian study with CBG and colorectal cancer found that CBG inhibited cancerous cell growth. CBG both destroyed tumor cells and inhibited growth
We are excited to share our Acrely Farms 1000mg organically grown CBG tincture with you. Regardless of the research, we love the calm, clarity and mental focus we feel and know you will too. Try our CBG today!
