CBG and Inflammation
CBG (cannabigerol) is a newly studied cannabinoid. It is the “precursor” to other cannabinoids. Along with CBD, CBG is non-intoxicating and helps with inflammation. A recent survey in Cannabis and Cannabinoid Research reflects users’ responses to CBG for relief of anxiety, chronic pain, depression, and insomnia. As well, there are no known side effects or withdrawal symptoms. Some doctors and researchers are finding that children with autism-related symptoms like anxiety, hyperactivity, digestive issues, and speech problems, are also finding relief (Cannabis Is Medicine). Of course, more research needs to be completed, but it appears that CBG’s ability to fight inflammation can be helpful for some.
