CBG is the building block for many compounds in marijuana, including THC and CBD.
Cannabinoids are the active chemicals found in marijuana. They are specific to the cannabis plant and are known to affect the human body in many ways.
In fact, THC, CBD and many other cannabinoids all begin as CBG. CBG is non-psychoactive and can be thought of as the “stem cell” or “parent” of other cannabinoids.
After being synthesized, CBG is quickly converted to other cannabinoids through natural processes that occur within the cannabis plant. This explains the low CBG content of most cannabis strains.
