CBG, short for Cannabigerol, is another Cannabinoid that's organically derived from hemp or Cannabis. It is known as the 'Grandmother' of all phytocannabinoids, as it is typically the first compound to form, which then leads to THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids to develop in the plant. Originally discovered in the 1960's, CBG was one of the least studied cannabinoids in Cannabis and until recently, one of the rarest - a typical Cannabis plant contains less than 1% CBG. Modern developments in Industrial Hemp have allowed us to isolate and now farm strains that are bountifully-rich in CBG. Using these new strains, hemp companies like Metolius are able to grow plants that primarily produce CBG as the main Cannabinoid, from which we harvest buds that are then dried and cured to create smokable-hemp flower. Similar to CBD and thought to be even more effective, CBG is revered for its pain-relieving, antibacterial & anti-nausea properties, as well as stress relief benefits. CBG may just be the most medicinally-impactful cannabinoid known to man!
