CBG is short for cannabigerol, and though it is another powerful compound in the cannabinoid family, it’s also the precursor to all other cannabinoids. While CBG has not been studied as extensively as CBD, empirical evidence points to its therapeutic potential to relieve inflammation, neurodegeneration, and acute ailments, just to name a few.
While further study is needed, scientists have said it may be more potent and have more of an affinity with receptors in our ECS than CBD. In a 2018 in-vitro study, CBG was associated with increased neuroprotection and helped mitigate oxidative stress (stressed out cells).
ALIVIO, our recovery formula, has a generous 2:1 ratio of CBG which equates to an effective 8mg of CBG per half dropper serving.
