What Is CBG?

How does it work? By reacting with the cannabinoid receptors that are in the brain.
What Are CBG Tinctures?
CBG tinctures are different from CBG oils in that they contain CBG suspended in distilled alcohol. As a result, they typically have a longer shelf life.
Not only that, but they also have a higher bioavailability. In other words, more of it will be absorbed into the body.

4 Benefits of Using CBG Tinctures
CBG tinctures can be used for a variety of conditions. Here’s what you need to know.
1. Bacterial Infections
Research has shown that CBG has antibacterial activity. That is, it’s capable of preventing bacteria from forming biofilms. In doing so, it’s able to prevent its growth.
In fact, there’s evidence that it can even kill methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
Glaucoma is a condition in which pressure builds up inside the eye. And as it turns out, CBG may be able to help with that (there are endocannabinoid receptors in the eyes).
With that said, it’s important that you don’t stop taking your glaucoma medications. When in doubt, consult with your doctor first before taking CBG.
3. Inflammatory Bowel Disease
CBG may be effective at reducing inflammation associated with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). What is IBD? It’s a term that represents a group of GI disorders including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
By taking CBG, an individual may experience less diarrhea, nausea, cramping, and abdominal pain.
4. Huntington’s Disease
CBG may also help individuals with Huntington’s disease. That is, it can help normalize the expression of abnormal genes—the ones that are often associated with the condition.
Given that, it may also be beneficial for other neurodegenerative conditions.
