- CBG or cannabigerol is a minor cannabinoid that offers valuable health benefits
- Since scientists revealed that CBG produces health benefits, farmers have started growing hemp strains specially engineered for a superior CBG content
- Even though it’s a cannabinoid, CBG does not produce psychoactive effects
- CBG does not produce side effects in therapeutic doses
- There are currently not a lot of high CBG strains apart from this one so prices remain high until the market expands, but that will surely change in the future
To understand what CBG is, we must have a basic understanding of plant biology. Plants grow thanks to a biological process called biosynthesis. This process basically allows the combination of different chemicals in the plant to create new, more useful, chemicals.
When it comes down to the cannabis plant, the two chemicals we have to mention are olivetolic acid (OLA) and Geranyl pyrophosphate (GDP or GPP, depending on the scientific source).These substances are worth mentioning because they’re the building blocks of all the cannabinoids in the plant. Just like the cells in the human body, all the cannabinoids can be traced back to one single type of substance.
When we’re talking about humans, we call these primordial supreme cells stem cells. You might have heard of them. They’ve been hailed as curing cancer,preseving youthfulness, and all treating cells. Scientists around the world are trying to treat everything from bad eyesight to cancer using stem cells.
Now, let’s get back to the cannabinoids in marijuana and industrial health. These cannabinoids belong to a larger group called phytocannabinoids. This type of cannabinoids has a similar structure to the cannabinoids produced in the human body called endocannabinoids. Thanks to their similarities, the phytocannabinoids can bind with the endocannabinoid receptors in our bodies, which enables them to produce similar effects.
You might be wondering why knowing this is important. Well, it’s important because it allows us to understand how CBG is made.
How Is CBG Made?
The first thing you should know about the phytocannabinoids in the cannabis plant (besides the fact that they’re related to human endocannabinoids, which we just explained) is that they can be divided into separate lines: tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabichromenic acid (CBCA), and cannabidiolic acid (CBDA). Each of these acids loses a CO2 molecule and transform into their non-acidic forms THC, CBC, and CBD when they’re heated.
Do these sound familiar? Well, if you’re familiar with the medicinal benefits of cannabinoids, they should.
Another thing you should know about phytocannabinoids is that all the three lines (THCA, CBCA, and CBDA) can be traced back to a single compound – cannabigerolic acid or CBGA.
Now, remember when we mentioned that we have to mention something about OLA and GDP? Through a complicated chemical process, these substances combine and manage to synthesize Cannabigerolic acid, which is basically the stem cell of the cannabis plant.
The cannabigerolic acid then goes through some chemical processes which allow it to transform into THCA, CBCA, and CBDA. Since most of the CBGA goes through the transformation, only small traces of the substance remain intact. You might have heard that industrial hemp has higher concentrations of CBD than THC. Well, that’s because farmers bred the cannabis plant specifically for this purpose.
But when scientists discovered that CBG can produce medical benefits, farmers started to grow cannabis strains specifically for their high CBGA content. They found that thanks to a recessive gene, some strains of industrial hemp are genetically predisposed to inhibit the synthesis of CBGA. While this could be disastrous for a farmer who grew his crop for its CBD content, it proved beneficial for those who grew it for its CBG.
Some of the current studies are trying to pinpoint the optimum extraction time for CBG. Since most of the CBGA transforms into other substances, it would be helpful to find out when farmers could harvest the cannabis plant to avoid the transformation altogether.
