3 Things to Know About CBG Capsules
CBG, or cannabigerol, is a minor cannabinoid present in most cannabis strains. Although it makes up less than 1% of the cannabis plant, CBG is considered the “mother of all cannabinoids”, as THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids are derived from it. CBG can offer a multitude of benefits, and comes in easy-to-swallow gelatin capsules. Here are 3 things to know about CBG capsules:
1. CBG may target specific receptors in the body, and can offer more focused pain relief and anti-inflammatory effects than CBD. It can help people be more focused, and can increase productivity without the jittery effects that some people experience with pharmaceuticals that help increase concentration and focus. CBG has a better taste profile than CBD, which some have described as bitter.
2. Although CBG hasn’t been approved by the FDA, it has been heavily researched with many positive outcomes. The CBG softgel capsules offered by Hemp Select, in particular, are very pure. Most brands are typically about 50% pure, with biomass like stems and leaves making up the rest of the product. Hemp Select is a “Craft Grow” operation which purchases seeds from a terrific supplier in Oregon. Its products are closer to 70% pure, which is rare.
3. Recent studies have shown that CBG may have anti-microbial properties (and may even work better than popular anti-microbial topical products), it may help treat acne, and it may help patients with colon cancer and Crohn’s Disease to manage their symptoms. It may help fight glaucoma by reducing intraocular eye pressure, it can help reduce effects of IBS by reducing inflammation, and it may fight bladder dysfunction by inhibiting muscle contractions. CBG can help reduce anxiety and pain, and may help people relax. This fabulous product can potentially help people with a variety of ailments. Current research is focusing on the potential of CBG to help prevent and fight cancers.
