CBG - Cannabigerol, Also known as "The Mother Molecule"
CBG is a type of cannabinoid from the cannabis plant. Often referred to as the mother of all cannabinoids. This is because other cannabinoids are derived from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), an acidic form of CBG.
CBG is usually found in trace amounts and is considered a "rare" Cannabinoid, However the ever increasing demand for it has created a whole market of breeders and labs focusing on CBG and other rare cannabinoids such as THCV, CBDV, CBC, CBDA and many more that are becoming more popular as science progresses to uncover more layers of truth behind these sacred and perhaps divine molecules.
CBG still hasn't been sufficiently researched but that did not stop private researchers and patients do their own experiements and gather data. The results so far seem very interesting and promising and definitely require more research.
Seems that Crohn and Colitis patients as well as IBS patients might be able to benefit from CBG In a way to "manipulate" the bowel system, Some patients and doctors have witnessed a drop in Calprotectin in stool tests. High levels of Faecal Calprotectin usually indicate the migration of neutrophils to the intestinal mucosa, which happens during inflammation caused by inflammatory bowel disease.
If you ever suffered from IBS / IBD, Crohn or Colitis, you probably know this is one of the toughest things anybody can every live with so this can potentially be great news for many patients around the world. More studies needed indeed. Also during and from 2019 we started seeing a huge fluctuations of prices of CBG and a lot more of it becoming avaiable which is potentially more good news for patients that could benefit from it. Seems that CBG is becoming increasingly approachable, Cheaper and more abundant and way more available in more countries and regions.
While only a few years before, A kilo of pure CBG could cost $80,000 now it can be found way cheaper and more accessible.
