5 Surprising Benefits of CBG in 2020
You may want to know what all this buzz around CBG is, or how the benefits of CBG are different than those of CBD, this is why we’ve created this guide to the top 5 benefits of CBG in 2020!
First of all, what is CBG?
CBG: Cannabigerol, commonly known as CBG, is an active compound in cannabis plants that is recently growing in popularity due to its antibacterial effects – CBG has been shown to help in lowering cholesterol, it protects our brain and nerves and it helps in reducing swelling. It’s not easy to get usually but CBG can be found in trace amounts in a variety of full-spectrum and broad-spectrum products as well as in H Hemp Co. or Vermont Hemp Health products found at Come Back Daily. Also known as the mother of all cannabinoids because it plays a very important role in the synthesis of other cannabinoids, CBG has a unique set of characters that make it different than all other cannabinoids. One of the benefits of CBD that is similar to CBD is that it is non-psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t give you the “high” feeling people experience with THC.
The last decade has brought many different diseases in the world, new stresses, and everyday problems but CBG shows promise to be a great alternative for people to use in boosting their immune system and dealing with the many twists and turns in one’s life. Let’s now discuss further some surprising health benefits of CBG showing promising research that can definitely prove to be helpful in the year 2020.

CBG Helps in Reducing Pain & Inflammation
CBD has very good anti-inflammatory properties and analgesic effects which can potentially help in reducing pain. When CBG enters our body, it directly interacts with our endocannabinoid system, which has receptors and neurotransmitters that are responsible for pain sensation and inflammation in any living organism. CBG is being used by more people in hopes of having positive effects on swelling and different kinds of joint pain.
In a 2018 study on the benefits of CBD on neuroinflammation, an Italian Scientist wrote in the abstract, “Inflammation and oxidative stress play main roles in neurodegeneration. Interestingly, different natural compounds may be able to exert neuroprotective actions against inflammation and oxidative stress, protecting from neuronal cell loss. Among these natural sources, Cannabis sativa represents a reservoir of compounds exerting beneficial properties, including cannabigerol (CBG)”. Neurodegeneration is when your neurons stop making connections, CBG in this case showed promising signs of treating this cell loss.
CBG for Clinical Depression
Clinical Depression is a severe form of depression. CBG could have benefits, not just for your body, but also potentially for your brain! Researchers have discovered that CBG can accelerate the uptake of GABA, Serotonin, and “the bliss molecule” Anandamide in the brain. This can lead to increased levels of these neurotransmitters in the brain. This, in theory, can potentially help to make you happier! Decreased levels of both GABA and serotonin have both been linked to depression.
CBG’s benefits for Glaucoma
Glaucoma is a common eye condition that often causes optic nerve damage and when left untreated can lead to blindness. CBG can potentially help with glaucoma, as it reduces the intraocular pressure. Our eyes contain many endocannabinoid receptors which can be easily activated when CBG enters the body. When activated, the result can be a shift in intraocular pressure. Other cannabinoids are helpful for this but CBG is particularly beneficial as it decreases pressure. Therefore expediting the draining of fluids. A 2008 study in Poland stated, “Over a period of several decades numerous scientific research has proven that, regardless of the route of administration, cannabinoids are able to decrease intraocular pressure.” The benefits of cannabis for treating glaucoma are some of the most studied, however, CBG is proving to be an important part of that puzzle.
