CBG is a natural compound found in the Cannabis plant as an essential Cannabinoid. Cannabis plants and hemp contain more than a hundred such natural compounds. CBG oil is extracted from hemp and cannabis plants and is popularly mixed with MCT oil or carrier oil to make it an edible product.
What is CBG?
CBG is known as Cannabigerol, and it reacts to the human body’s endocannabinoid system like THC and CBD. It is still a research topic for medical scientists that how cannabinoids generally affect the human body’s natural endocannabinoid system.
It is observed that CBG mostly connects with CB1 and CB2 receptors of the body, but mainly it interacts with the body’s endocannabinoid system and provides several therapeutic effects.
CBG is not psychoactive and does not produce ‘high’. Thus, CBG is safe to use and has no mind-altering effects like THC.

CBG is for the people seeking better health management in a natural way rather than using antibiotics. CBG drops have still not received much attention like CBD, but they offer some great health benefits.

CBGA is amalgamated in the form of CBDA, THCA, etc. This process of synthesis occurs when the hemp or cannabis plant matures. When the compounds THCA and CBDA get heated, you get acid ‘A’ in the form of drops known as CBD and THC.
