What is CBG or Cannabigerol?

CBG the cannabinoid in cannabis

CBG, also known as cannabigerol, is currently at the center of scientific research devoted to cannabinoids. It is one of the most fascinating and promising molecules among phytocannabinoids, also known as the “mother” or “stem” cannabinoid.

CBG acts as a precursor to other cannabinoids such as THC and CBD and occurs in the early stages of cannabis growth. This versatile cannabinoid shows great therapeutic potential in preclinical studies, particularly due to its ability to influence the endocannabinoid system, crucial for maintaining body homeostasis.

In research, CBG has shown a strong agonistic effect on CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors, which allows it to influence a wide range of physiological processes, including the regulation of mood, pain and appetite. It has also been successful as an antibacterial agent in laboratory tests, especially against bacteria that are resistant to traditional antibiotics, opening the door to new approaches in the fight against resistant bacterial infections.

Due to its potential role in reducing inflammation, it is interesting as a candidate for the treatment of diseases such as Crohn’s disease, where anti-inflammatory activity is crucial. Studies have also shown that it can inhibit the growth of cancer cells, which brings hope for use in oncology.

Further research suggests that CBG may be important in the treatment of glaucoma due to its ability to lower intraocular pressure. With its potential neuroprotective properties, it could contribute to improving cognitive functions and protecting nerve cells from degeneration.

Despite its lower prevalence compared to CBD and THC, the range of therapeutic effects of CBG raises hopes for its role in the future of phytotherapy and medical research. Further scientific research and clinical trials are needed to fully understand its effects on the human body.

A deeper look into CBG – scientific explanations and research

In recent years, scientists have intensively studied CBG to understand its action and potential benefits. It acts on the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the human body, which plays a key role in regulating various physiological processes, including pain, mood, appetite and immune response.

CBG cannabinoid (CANABIGEROL)

In the world of hemp products, where CBD and THC usually stand out, a new player is emerging – CBG or cannabigerol, often called the “mother cannabinoid”, is increasingly in the spotlight for its potential health benefits and unique properties.

So what is CBG?

Cannabigerol (CBG) is one of more than 100 cannabinoids found in cannabis. This compound occurs in very small amounts in the cannabis plant, which makes it one of the more exclusive and valued cannabinoids.

It is a precursor to other cannabinoids such as CBD and THC and plays a key role in the biochemistry of cannabis.

Effect on the human body: How does CBG work on the endocannabinoid system?

The endocannabinoid system consists of two types of receptors: CB1 and CB2. While THC acts directly on CB1 receptors (causing psychoactive effects), CBG works more subtly, specifically on CB2 receptors. This explains why it does not cause psychoactive effects, but acts as a potentially powerful therapeutic agent.


The pharmacological effects

Research shows that CBG has several pharmacological effects, including:

  • antibacterial properties: Studies have shown that CBG has strong antibacterial and antifungal activity, especially against bacteria and fungi resistant to traditional antibiotics.
  • antitumor properties: Preliminary results of studies show that CBG could inhibit the growth of some cancer cells.
  • Neuroprotective effects: CBG shows potential as a neuroprotective agent, which could be useful in diseases such as Huntington’s disease.
  • appetite stimulation: CBG has been shown to be a powerful appetite stimulant in some studies.
  • anti-inflammatory properties: can help reduce inflammation, which is beneficial for a variety of health conditions.
  • help in the treatment of glaucoma: can reduce eye pressure and improve the secretion of tear fluid.

How does CBG differ from CBD?

While CBD and CBG share some similarities, such as non-psychoactivity and therapeutic potential, CBG differs in its unique chemical profile and the way it interacts with the endocannabinoid system. It may work better for certain medical conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease, glaucoma, and bacterial infections.


CBG is usually used in the form of oils, tinctures or extracts. Because it does not cause psychoactive effects, it is attractive to users seeking the therapeutic benefits of cannabinoids without the “hit”. It is recommended to start with lower doses and gradually increase according to individual needs and the body’s response.

Development and production of CBG products

Production is more complex and expensive compared to CBD and THC. This is partly due to the fact that hemp plants only naturally produce small amounts of CBG. At AgroSloven, we focus on innovative production techniques and selective cultivation in order to maximize the CBG content of our plants. We have developed CBG hemp drops, which are already available for purchase in our online store .

Production at AgroSloven

At AgroSloven, we are aware of the potential that CBG brings. Our products containing this active ingredient are obtained from organically grown industrial hemp and are subject to strict quality control standards. Our goal is to provide the purest and most effective products available on the market.

Quality and safety of AgroSloven products

As the industry leader in AgroSloven, we guarantee that all our CBG products are safe, clean and of high quality. We use advanced extraction methods that maintain the integrity and purity of the active ingredient while meeting and exceeding industry standards for testing and quality.

The Future of CBG Research

CBG research is still in its infancy, but the scientific community is increasingly aware of its potential. Further studies will be critical to understanding the full extent of its effects and how it can best serve as a therapeutic agent.

CBG is certainly a promising cannabinoid with unique potential health benefits. At AgroSloven, we are committed to researching and developing high-quality products that can help improve the quality of life of our customers. As always, it is important to consult a healthcare professional before using CBG or any other cannabinoid, especially if you have any medical conditions or are taking other medications.
