The research of CBG is new, but early clinical studies suggest that one of its benefits is to promote gut homeostasis. Happy gut, happy life.
One area of study is CBG’s antibacterial properties, which one European scientific study demonstrated to be effective against resistant bacteria strains, such as MRSA (methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). Other areas of CBG research include therapeutic applications for some medical conditions.
How does CBG work?
Within the human body, phytocannabinoids like CBG are thought to mimic the body’s natural endocannabinoids by filling in on the need for physiological signaling. CBG interacts with receptors throughout the endocannabinoid system (ECS), including the serotonin 5HT-1a receptor. Serotonin (often called “the happy chemical”) is mainly found in the digestive tract even though it is manufactured in the brain.
CBG also contributes to the “entourage effect,” which suggests that the whole plant, including terpenes and other compounds, is greater than the sum of its parts. This concept is well-understood when discussing whole foods versus processed foods.
What is CBG and where does it come from?
Cannabigerol, or CBG, is derived from hemp and is known to support gut health.
Known as the “mother of all cannabinoids,” CBG is the first cannabinoid produced by the plant and the source of all other phytocannabinoids.
Taking care of your gut requires daily care and a consistent routine that considers everything that may be contributing to its health, including stress, diet and habits. BLOOM FARMS Comfort CBG Tincture was thoughtfully formulated to support gut health as part of your wellness journey.
