What is CBG? How Does it Work?

CBG (Cannabigerol) is the neutral cannabinoid which arises through decarboxylation from the acid precursor (CBGA). CBGA is an extremely important cannabinoid from which almost all other cannabinoids are formed. As a result, CBGA is also called the stem cell in cannabinoid biosynthetic pathway. CBG displays a multitude of potential benefits including but not limited to working as a neuroprotectant, antioxidant…
