Cannabigerol (CBG) – Information

POST BY: HEMPOIL®
1 MINUTE READ

Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in the Cannabis genus of plants, as well as certain other plants including Helichrysum umbraculigerum. CBG is the non-acidic form of cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), the parent molecule (“mother cannabinoid”) from which many other cannabinoids are made.By the time most strains of cannabis reach maturity, most of the CBG has been converted into other cannabinoids, primarily tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD), usually leaving somewhere below 1% CBG in the plant.

CBG has been found to act as a high  affinity α2-adrenergic receptor agonist , moderate affinity  5-HT1A receptor antagonist , and low affinity  CB1 receptor antagonist . It also binds to the CB2 receptor  as an antagonist. CBG does not trigger THC-like activity in mice, rats, gerbils and non-human primates, consistent with it being non-intoxicating. Moreover, CBG was without effect up to 80 mg/kg in the mouse  tetrad test of cannabimimetic activity (locomotor suppression, catalepsy, hypothermia and analgesia).
