    Cannabigerol—CBG—is the unsung hero of your endocannabinoid system. That’s because many cannabinoids, such as CBD and THC, begin as CBG. Like CBD, CBG is nonpsychoactive.

    Cannabinoids all start off as Cannabigerol, or CBG. CBG’s precursor, cannabigerolic acid, or (CBGa) is the primary cannabinoid. It is non-psychoactive and can be thought of as the “stem cell” of other cannabinoids found in cannabis. It is the precursor to the three major branches of cannabinoids: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCa), cannabidiolic acid (CBDa), and cannabichromenic acid (CBCa). The plant has natural enzymes, called synthase, that break the CBGa down and mould it toward the desired branch. When exposed to heat, or prolonged UV light, CBGa will break down and become CBG. This break down explains the low concentration of CBG in most strains. Besides its role in forming other cannabinoids, CBG has a number of important effects of its own.
