Cannabigerol: Could CBG Be A New Miracle Medicine?

November 08, 2017

While research is still a bit limited, what we know so far is that CBG works alongside other cannabinoids such as THC and CBD…

As well as that, CBG is a CB1-receptor antagonist, which means it directly affects the human nervous system. CBG is thought to inhibit the uptake of GABA in the brain, which in turn is thought to decrease general anxiety as well as muscle tension.

A number of studies have been carried out demonstrating that CBG could treat a whole host of medical conditions including inflammation, inflammatory bowel disease, glaucoma, and even certain types of cancer.

A study carried out in Italy, published back in May 2013 in the Biological Psychology publication, found that just like CBD, CBG has also strong anti-inflammatory properties and helped many patients.

CBG is thought to be a great pain reliever, due to its analgesic effects, for conditions such as Multiple sclerosis (MS) and pain caused by some forms of cancer, as well as many soft tissue conditions.

According to the research, CBG has the ability to reduce inflammation by targeting the specific molecules responsible for inflammation. This includes soft tissue tension and inflammation, as well as inflammation associated with bowel disease.

In a study published in August 2016, called ‘Phytocannabinoids for use in the treatment of intestinal inflammatory diseases‘ researchers found that CBG could help patients with various inflammation issues, as well as Colitis and Crohn’s disease.

Many people who suffer from anxiety, either general or specific, use a host of psychotropic drugs to be able to handle everyday life. But there’s good news; A study from 2016, carried out by Ethan B. Russo, suggests that CBG has a similar calming effect to THC but without the sometimes confusing high. As it is mainly non-psychoactive, CBG could be the future for treating anxiety.

As with all Cannabis strains, more research is needed so that experts like the people at SC Labs can fully try and test herbs, in order to ascertain their suitability for specific medical conditions and pain relief.

While it’s no secret that the right strain of Cannabis helps countless people with pain relief, could CBG be the miracle compound that researchers have been waiting to discover? And for that matter, could it be the compound responsible for curing many different types of cancer?

With new research being carried out in America, and also in Israel, medical patients are looking forward to a bright future. Hopefully, one free of toxic chemical painkillers, and one full of natural, holistic and safe remedies.
