Cannabigerol (CBG) is a lesser-known cannabinoid found in cannabis. It has only been gaining attention within the last few years as researchers have discovered its unique properties and potential medical benefits. The possible therapeutic uses of CBG are currently being investigated by many studies worldwide, making it clear that this compound is an important element within the plant.

Knowledge about this cannabinoid is still limited, but there are some interesting facts that you should know about its properties and medical benefits. Here are five facts you should know about CBG tinctures:

  • CBG tinctures are taken by applying a few drops under your tongue. As they go straight into the bloodstream, you can be able to feel the effects within a couple of minutes.
  • CBG tinctures are 100% natural; they are non-psychoactive and safe to use during the day. When cannabis is heated, it produces a psychoactive compound called tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). CBG cannot cause this high because it can’t bind itself in the same way to the cannabinoid receptors in the brain. This means that CBG tinctures are suitable for anyone looking to experience the benefits of cannabis without getting high.
  • One of the most important factors determining CBG’s effectiveness is the processing method: heat destroys it, so raw extractions and cold-water infusions are best.
  • CBG is a powerful antioxidant and has been found to boost the effectiveness of other medications, such as antidepressants, cancer drugs, and epilepsy medication.
  • Since it’s such a discovery, there hasn’t been much research into the medical properties of CBG tincture. However, early findings show that it could be a powerful and effective treatment for inflammation, acne, cancerous cells, depression, anxiety, arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease.

CBG tinctures are a great alternative for those who don’t react well to other types of cannabis extractions. They have been found to have powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and are non-psychoactive cannabinoids with the potential to treat many different medical conditions.
