Cannabigerol (CBG) is a type of cannabinoid that is acquired from the cannabis plant. It can be found in most cannabis strains and is known as one of the non-psychoactive cannabinoids. Like Tetrahydrocannabinol(THC), CBG responds with the brain's cannabinoid receptors, but unlike THC, CBG helps alleviate paranoia caused by the former.
CBG is obtained through specific Cannabis strains bred to express higher amounts of CBG and also from younger cannabis plants which contain higher concentrations of Cannabigerol than the mature plants.
The body's endocannabinoid system processes the Cannabidiol (CBD). The endocannabinoid system consists of an extensive network of cellular receptors throughout a human's brain and body. The brain's "cannabinoid" receptors surpass most receptor types; they are in charge of most of the levels and activities of the neurotransmitters.
