CBG or Cannabigerol is gaining popularity in Personal Care for its antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and anxiolytic benefits. It is known as the ‘Mother of all Cannabinoids’ or the ‘Stem Cell of Cannabinoids’ as it is the precursor to both the CBD and THC cannabinoids. Hence, CBG is believed to be more potent than CBD.
CBG is a rare and minor cannabinoid because it mostly gets converted to other cannabinoids and is thus not abundantly available. Hence, manufacturers are rushing to create innovative technologies that can help extract ultra-pure CBG.
