Cannabigerol (CBG) and its anti-inflammatory affect that stand out the most

CBG is the short form for the cannabigerol which is a cannabinoid. It is not a psychoactive cannabinoid. Let us understand about CBG’s medical effects that can treat various health problems.


CBG is another cannabinoid tested for MRSA virus in the year 2008. As far as antibiotic properties are concerned, CBG is found to be stronger than CBN and CBD. CBG has mild anti-fungal properties too. Research has shown that CBG is antimicrobial and can kill different types of fungi and bacteria.

Pain reliever

CBG is believed to be more powerful pain reliever as compared to THC.


CBG is good for your skin. It is not only beneficial for preventing redness of the skin, but also proved to be highly effective in healing skin problems like psoriasis.

Anti Tumour

In 1998 it was discovered that CBG has the potential to slow down the growth of cells causing cancer in the mouth. Most recent studies also found that CBG has mild anti-tumour properties that influence in prostate cancer cells. CBG is effective in reducing the growth of tumours.

Mood stabilizer and antidepressant

According to the studies, CBG is believed to be a moderate anti depressant that works to increase the levels of serotonin in your brain.


CBG is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties and this was found in a study conducted on a mouse model for the inflammatory bowel disease. CBG was successful in normalising a series of inflammatory markers, reducing free radicals that cause oxidative damage and elevate the levels of body’s own antioxidants and superoxide dismutase. Free radicals can lead to damage of any component of tissues present in our body which can result in inflammation and inflammation is body’s reaction to damage.

CBG use also showed an increase in the ratio of width to length between colon both as a curative and preventive measure in treatment. A CBG dose of 30mg/kg was helpful in reducing the signs that indicated colonic injury with glands at work in regenerating the areas destroyed. After a period of time inflammation can lead to tissue damage it results in loss of its function. This is proved when inflammation (injured colon issue) was left untreated and resulted in necrosis. Necrosis actually means health of the tissue, which can lead to complications in patient’s life. The best example of necrosis is gangrene, which is common in patients having diabetes and when injury in such patients is left untreated. This sometimes results in amputation as it can be life threatening when left untreated. Intestinal state decreases the digestive efficacy                 and lets undigested food substances enter your bloodstream, which can result in inflammatory damage if your immune system responds to it.

CBG is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which can help you fight many health problems. Inflammation basically leads to many diseases that can be life threatening too. It is important to treat inflammation on time and CBG can be an effective treatment that can fight inflammation.
