Cannabigerol (CBG) is the root cannabinoid, or stem cell of the other cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant. THC, CBD and other cannabinoids begin their lives in the plant as CBG. Then the plant’s genetic triggers and exposure to earth’s elements cause CBG to convert to the other cannabinoids that we all know and love.
Because CBG usually converts early in the flowering process it has traditionally only been able to be captured in low levels. New breeding advancements have resulted in strains where the CBG does not convert and the flower is CBG dominant. Here at Kaw Valley Cannabis we grow CBG rich flower which is capable of 15% CBG while having almost no THC.
While CBD and THC have been widely studied, and their benefits well documented, scientists are just beginning to understand this amazing compound. A quick google search can give you insight into the exciting potential of CBG.
Studies have shown CBG to be more powerful and effective than CBD, and we are confident that CBG will become a dominant force in the world of cannabis in the future.
