As a cannabis plant grows, the first cannabinoid it produces is cannabigerolic acid (CBGA). Often referred to as the "stem cell" of the cannabinoids, it is the chemical parent of both CBD and THC. CBG has no psychoactive effects and is showing great promise in helping with a wide variety of conditions.
Research has already shown that CBG may have some remarkable healing properties. It has been shown to possibly be anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal, antimicrobial, antioxidative, neuroprotective, and may act as an appetite stimulant. As more research into CBG emerges, it might just be considered the most diverse therapeutic cannabinoid when it comes to the multitude of ailments that it may offer relief to.
