Studies are showing CBG aids in reducing neuroinflammation, neuronal cell loss, and oxidative stress. Oxidative stress occurs when there’s an imbalance between free radical activity and antioxidant activity. When functioning properly, free radicals can help fight off pathogens. Pathogens lead to infections. ThereforeCBG not only has increased anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective properties but provides anti-infection support to our body as well.
CBG can also affect the body by increasing anandamide levels. Anandamide is a naturally-occurring cannabinoid created by our body that helps regulate many biological functions, including appetite, sleep, and memory. CBG has been shown to block serotonin receptors as well, which suggests a role for CBG in treating depression.
