What is CBG?
Cannabigerol is a cannabinoid that has anti-inflammatory and anti-pain effects. It is a natural product found in the cannabis plant, which means that it is not chemically synthesized.
Benefits of CBG (Cannabigerol)
1) Maintaining eye health
Cannabigerol helps to maintain the health of the retina, macular tissues, and lens by preventing damage due to oxidative stress. It also possesses antioxidant properties that help prevent glaucoma, which is a disease that increases pressure in the eyeballs and causes corneal damage.
CBG (cannabigerol) is effective against bacteria including E. coli, Salmonella, and Staphylococcus aureus. Cannabigerol also prevents the growth of bacteria by preventing them from forming biofilms which enables them to adhere more strongly to surfaces.
Research indicates cannabis compounds are effective in reducing tumor size. While the studies have limits, early studies have shown that CBG (cannabigerol) is effective in reducing tumor size in animals. This is why delta 8 vape pen patients often add it to their treatment protocol.
Cannabigerol can be useful for treating mechanical and inflammatory pain. In one study, it was more effective than ibuprofen in the reduction of knee osteoarthritis in rats. It also inhibited the activity of NF-kB, which is a signaling molecule that controls inflammation processes.
5) Stress response
In one study, cannabigerol would increase the brain's levels of dopamine in rats with high levels of depression. It can also normalize the activity of monoamine oxidase, which is an enzyme that breaks down dopamine. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that has many important functions including movement, pleasure and reward, motivation, and attention.
6) Preservation of brain health
Cannabigerol prevents cognitive impairment caused by reduced blood flow to the brain (ischemia). It also prevents neuronal cell apoptosis, which is a process where cells die. Delta 8 pen can be effective in possibly preventing the development of Alzheimer's disease.
7) Protection of heart health
Cannabigerol may prevent arterial thrombosis and blood clot formation. It inhibits platelet aggregation and is anti-atherosclerotic. In animals, it reduces the formation of atherosclerotic plaques and is anti-thrombotic. Cannabigerol may also help to prevent constrictive pericarditis in animals, which is a common disease affecting the heart.
8) Appetite stimulating
Cannabigerol can be useful in stimulating the appetite in both humans and animals. It may be effective against anorexia in animals and may help those who have sleep apnea. In rats, it reduces nausea.
9) Multiple sclerosis treatment
Cannabigerol is anti-spasmodic and neuroprotective and may be helpful in the treatment of multiple sclerosis. It may also help to improve symptoms of urinary incontinence in murine models, which means it can help people who experience this condition.
10) Mitigating skin health concerns
Cannabigerol helps with wound healing, pain, and inflammation. In animals with atopic dermatitis, the oil has proven effective in reducing their disease symptoms.
