What Is CBG?
Cannabigerol (CBG) is a precursor phytocannabinoid found within cannabis plants from which all other cannabinoids are eventually derived. During growth, most CBG produced by a cannabis plant is converted into other primary cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. As a result of this conversion, levels of CBG in cannabis plants at harvest are typically quite low.
First forming in the plants as cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), this cannabinoid plays a vital role in the biosynthesis of the major primary cannabinoids, as well as displaying its own unique medicinal characteristics in both its acidic and decarboxylated form.
