CBG 101

CBG, or cannabigerol, is one of the many cannabinoids found in the Hemp plant. Like CBD and THC, CBG is produced in the trichomes of the hemp plant, which are the small, resinous glands that cover the flowers and leaves. CBG is often referred to as the "mother cannabinoid" or the "stem cell" of cannabinoids because it is the precursor to other cannabinoids, including THC and CBD.

Extraction and Sources

CBG is synthesized from cannabigerolic acid (CBGA), which is the acidic form of CBG. As the hemp plant matures, enzymes break down CBGA into other cannabinoids, such as THC, CBD, and CBC (cannabichromene). Because CBG is present in low concentrations in mature hemp plants, it is often referred to as a minor cannabinoid.

Research on CBG is still in its early stages, but studies suggest that it may interact with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), a complex network of receptors found throughout the body that helps regulate various physiological processes, including mood, appetite, pain sensation, and immune function.


The legal status of CBG varies from country to country and even within different regions of the same country. In many parts of the world, CBG derived from hemp (a variety of cannabis with low THC content) is legal, while CBG derived from marijuana (a variety with higher THC content) may be subject to stricter regulations.
