You have most likely heard about the countless health benefits of CBD, but have you heard of Cannabigerol (CBG)? It is a similar non-psychoactive compound to CBD, with anti-inflammatory properties. At Hempology CBD Store, we have cannabigerol CBG for sale, in the form of CBG oil. Visit our website for more information.
Differences between CBG and CBD
If you are new to cannabinoid products, you would probably confuse CBG with CBD. While they do both belong to the same family of compounds we call ‘cannabinoids,’ they are still different compounds. CBG or Cannabigerol is still a relatively new entrant to the cannabinoid market. Like CBD, it also comes from the cannabis or hemp plant.
Because CBG is not psychoactive, just like CBD, the medical community believes it delivers similar benefits. In multiple research studies, CBD was effective in treating chronic pain in patients of serious medical conditions like Multiple Sclerosis and fibromyalgia. You can find CBD products as both topical products like oils and creams or oral forms like gummies. If you are searching for Cannabigerol CBG for sale, you can find it in our stores.
All about cannabinoids
The term ‘cannabinoids’ is a broader term that refers to a family of compounds, that even our bodies make naturally. Our bodies have their own endocannabinoid system, with receptors for cannabinoids. This system plays a role in regulating internal processes like appetite and inflammation.
THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is also a cannabinoid and is the predominant cannabinoid you find marijuana. However, it is psychoactive (unlike CBD and CBG), which is responsible for the negative side effects of marijuana smoking. So, THC overshadows any positive aspects of non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBD.
How cannabinoids work on the body
So, as we noted in the earlier section, cannabinoids interact with the cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system of the human body. There are two main cannabinoid receptors, known as CB1 and CB2. You will find CB1 primarily in the nervous system and regulate its functions.
CB2 receptors seem to regulate things like appetite and inflammation. This is why CBD helps with things like weight management, digestive problems, and pain relief. All these issues stem from excessive inflammation in the body so that CBD will help with this. CBG also seems to have similar anti-inflammatory properties in the body.
Are CBD or CBG products legal?
People associate these compounds with marijuana and its legal problems. But, it is essential to note that the legal issues around marijuana are mainly due to the psychoactive nature of THC. Neither CBD nor CBG is psychoactive, so it is legal in most states for adults over the age of 18.
Also, CBD is a component of the hemp plant, which is legal as long as the THC content is below 0.3%. The CBG products you find in the market also come from hemp.
CBG is a new product in the cannabinoid market, and not many places have cannabigerol CBG for sale. Visit our Hempology CBD store to find out more about CBG and its products.
