CBG or Cannabigerol is less prevalent in the hemp plant by concentration, and this is why you may not have heard much about CBG products before. In raw hemp flower, CBG typically makes up less than 1% of the plant!
So, here’s the thing. CBD wouldn’t actually exist without CBG. Cannabigerol is considered the parent cannabinoid, otherwise known as the precursor. Because the hemp plant has a huge concentration of CBD, many companies focus on bringing that specific cannabinoid to market.
But we believe cannabinoids that have exceptional potential should be widely available, and that’s where AddCBG comes in. As cultivation and processing methods have evolved and become more refined, we are now better positioned to isolate CBG before it synthesises into the next series of cannabinoids in the hemp plant cycle.
What is CBG (Cannabigerol) good for?
Our diets have changed, there’s no doubt about it. It’s no surprise, therefore that there are millions of people out there now with digestive disorders.
This is one of the key areas where CBG is believed to have such a positive impact. As an anti-fungal, anti-biotic, anti-inflammatory and neuro-protectant, our ‘mother of all cannabinoids’ has massive potential to interact with receptors and enzymes in the peripheral system positively.
CBG & IBS
Most researchers agree that IBS is linked to chronic stress, gut flora imbalances, and low digestive enzymes in the digestive tract. The body cannot manage stress levels when it does not create enough endogenous cannabinoids such as anandamide and 2-AG. This inability to produce a necessary amount of endocannabinoids could cause symptoms associated with IBS.
If you aim to bring your body back into balance using more natural remedies, it makes sense to look toward an isolated cannabinoid such as CBG with properties that can alleviate the symptoms of digestive disorders. Let’s not forget that many adult digestive tracts are around 30ft in length, which is why we believe strongly in looking after them!
Incorporating CBG food enhancer into your daily routine is easier than ever, and we would always suggest keeping a diary to track your own personal progress.
How else can CBG be useful?
There’s another system we all have that should be looked after, as it’s one of the largest organs in our bodies – our skin!
We’re all conscious of keeping our skin hydrated, glowing and taut. We’re also creatures of habit, and once we find that perfect product that interacts with our skin the way we like, why would we change? And that’s exactly why we’ve created another all-around additive – AddCBG cosmetic enhancer.
A few drops into your everyday product, and you can begin experiencing the positive impact from the potential benefits cannabigerol (CBG) carries. Skin reactions are mostly visible, and this can negatively play on our minds. By incorporating CBG into your skincare regime, you’re taking control of helping your body repair and regenerate those cells to keep you feeling and looking beautiful.
We all know CBD doesn’t get us “high”, but what about CBG? Let’s nip this in the bud. CBG is also non-psychoactive. THC cannot be synthesised once CBG is decarboxylated from its acidic form. And that’s what we’re all about here…no psychotropic highs. High fives, on the other hand? Put them up; we’ve got you covered.
