Nature’s Gifts: The Medical Potential of CBG

Cannabigerol, commonly known as CBG, is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid derived from the cannabis plant. In general terms, the purpose of CBG is to act as a sort of psychological barrier that prevents THC from inducing paranoia, which can potentially be synonymous with higher levels of THC, making it safe to use for people looking for a natural medical solution.

One of the unique aspects of CBG is that it delivers very low reaction results when interacting with cannabinoid receptors as it mainly acts via indirect interactions with the endocannabinoid system. In addition, it is coming to light that CBG offers a number of potential medical benefits, and here is a look at what we know so far.

A possible aid in relation to fighting the impact of Glaucoma

Medical cannabis is being used as a way of treating glaucoma and it seems that CBG oil is behind its ability to help alleviate the symptoms. It is understood that CBG has the capability to reduce the intraocular pressure that people with glaucoma experience and scientific research is still ongoing with regard to this benefit.

Help with inflammatory bowel disease

Another aspect of scientific research relating to the benefits of CBG is looking at how it may be able to provide an element of relief for people who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

IBD impacts a growing number of adults and research feedback suggest that CBG is able to deliver a certain amount of relief from the cramps and abdominal pain associated with this condition.

Protecting the nervous system

Scientific research has revealed that CBG has antioxidant properties and this means that it has the potential to protect the nervous system from damage.

Its neuroprotective qualities have the scientists interested because it demonstrates that CBG may be able to improve motor deficiencies and work proactively by preserving neurons in the fight against neurodegenerative diseases such as Huntington’s.

Enjoy a restful night’s sleep

Another positive aspect of CBG is that its oil in medical marijuana offers some hope when it comes to treating certain sleep disorders. Research has shown that CBG interacts with your body’s natural regulation of serotonin and dopamine. The significance of this is that it means CBG could be used to treat certain anxiety disorders.

When you are less stressed, it should allow you to enjoy a longer and more restful night of sleep, delivering longer sleep patterns and times as a result.

Boosting dopamine levels

Dopamine is the chemical neurotransmitter that controls your memory capacity, focus levels, and general mental awareness. Studies have managed to demonstrate a correlation between CBG and your brain’s dopamine and this means that you may be able to improve your attention levels and focus when using CBG.

It is known that dopamine levels are pivotal in relation to engine control as well as concentration levels.

Other potential benefits of CBG identified by scientific research include the ability to help with weight loss and treat chronic pain on an ongoing basis.

Based on scientific research to date, It certainly seems that CBG has enough medical potential to be deemed a valuable gift of nature.
