Cannabis or the common hemp plants host around 120 cannabinoids compounds which are obtained majorly from the flower and trichome of the plants. However, two major compounds have shown promise in helping to potentially treat clinical conditions. Cannabigerol (CBG) and Cannabidiol (CBD). There are many research results available across the web which shows positive results in helping with symptoms of various illness. In this article, we will discuss in detail ‘how does CBG work?’ We will be discussing in detail the effectiveness, efficacy, and working principals of CBG.
Cannabigerol; healing properties:
Cannabigerol has an intrinsic healing property that dates back for many years. It also has shown promise in helping with problems like epilepsy or seizures without causing any allergic symptoms.
CBG is different than CBD one major aspect that is appetite. Regular uptake of CBD can decrease your appetite for normal edible substances. CBG on the other hand has an easy digestion mechanism due to its chemical structure and upregulates the appetite of your body. This in turn helps gain body mass and improves your BMI.
These were a concise account of all the positive effects caused by CBG. Now, let us dig a little deep towards the fine details of how does CBG work and their effects.
a) Management of chronic pain
CBG interacts indirectly with CB2 receptors as mentioned before. This activates the production of endocannabinoids in your body which then triggers the nerves of CNS and ECS ultimately giving the message to your brain in the form of decreased pain senses.
Many people use CBD Balms or Topical CBD products which have been found to have great results to assist in reducing muscle pains. It is a traditional anti-inflammatory character that soothes the sensory nerves.
Injured athletes are often trying CBD and CBG in hopes of speeding up the healing process. It is also worth noting that certain CBD Studies have shown infused CBD into Sativex, a prescription drug for pain management.
c) Anxiety relief
Researches held across the globe have confirmed that CBG positively affects the serotonin and melatonin levels in your body. These two hormones control the anxiety and stress levels in you. It also controls the impulsive reactions which we show during times of severe stress. CBG has a general soothing effect on your nervous system by keeping the serotonin and melatonin levels at a controlled state. It induces sleep, increases the control over the impulsive action, and prevents overactivity of your brain and CNS.
