What is this CBG in your Gummies?
Both of our gummies, Broad-Spectrum and Full-Spectrum, contain 45 mg of CBD and 45 mg of CBG (cannabigerol). As more articles are published about CBD. we have started to feel more knowledgeable about the benefits of CBD. Now, we are seeing that CBG is being promoted on the same label showing that the bottle contains 2700 mg total. With CBD being 45 mg of the total in each gummy, what is the other 45 mg?
According to an article by Alexander Beadle, "all of the cannabinoids present in cannabis are derived from CBGA, cannabigerolic acid." This CBGA converts into three different cannabinoid precursors. What is left over that doesn't convert is the CBG. (Beadle, 2020)
We know that CBD is thought to interact indirectly with the cannabinoid receptors to give therapeutic benefits. The CBG is believed to react directly. This is where your body receives the benefits of direct and indirect interactions.
