Alpaca Club explores CBG!
Tldr: CBG is a cannabis compound that doesn’t get you high and helps with Anxiety, inflammation and increases appetite. It also protects your nerves and has antibacterial effects,
We are seeing a new Cannabinoid on the market and we picked some up in our Sacramento Delivery to test out and see if its a good fit for our customer.
CBG works to fight inflammation, pain, nausea and works to slow the proliferation of cancer cells. Research has shown it also significantly reduces intraocular eye pressure caused by glaucoma. Products high in CBG will be beneficial treating conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, and cancer.
First discovered in 1964, cannabigerol (CBG), known as the “mother of all cannabinoids, is an incredible compound with tons of therapeutic potential. It is just one of over 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis. Its acidic form, cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), is the foundation of many other major and minor cannabinoids. It is called the Mother, because the plant creates CBG that eventually turns into CBD and THC!
Proof CBG Elixir
Proof Exracts created one of the first products we have found with CBG, creating an elixir for everyday health and the concentrate found in Full Spectrum extract for our Sacramento Delivery!
Proof’s CBG Elixir brings this rare and elusive cannabinoid to the front, mixing with a spectrum of cannabinoids including CBG, CBD, and THC, for an all-together unique and fresh approach to wellness. The CBG Elixir has a strong punch of healing and energy, with a micro-dose of psychoactivity to pick you up and carry you through your day, whatever it may bring.
We picked up the concentrate because of the research for CBG has found that it helps with IBS, Hunington and Cancer. While this is still early, we find that anyone who is looking for a non-high treatment for inflammation and anxiety.
CBG Health Benefits
While there are still gaps to fill in the research of CBG, early findings indicate it has numerous health benefits:
Reducing intraocular pressure and working as a vasodilator neuroprotectant; this makes it a promising option for treating and managing symptoms of glaucoma.
Anti-inflammatory properties when tested on mice with induced colitis, which could prove an effective and holistic treatment for various inflammatory bowel diseases.
Combating Huntington’s disease in mice, which causes nerve cell degeneration in the brain, by protecting neurons and stymieing progression.
An agonist to alpha-2 receptors, which are primarily found in the nervous system and regulate blood pressure and heart rate, as well as sympathetic nervous system activity. By inhibiting them, CBG may be able to address symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
High potential as a cancer inhibitor and treatment, including for breast, gastric, and colorectal cancer cells, and even glioblastoma brain tumors.
An antibacterial agent, even against bacterial strains resistant to other drugs.
Stimulating appetite, though studies have only been done on rats. This may help induce appetite in chronically ill patients or those who have lost their appetite from cancer treatments.
